So I just finished watch the film Dune, I'm left thinking to myself "what the fuck?". Really I didn't get it at all, it was boring, it didn't make much sense, and in the end what was the point? Maybe if I had read the book then watched this I might have kind of liked it but I doubt it. If your a fan of this one then we have at least one thing we don't share, if you didn't like this film then come on over and sit at the cool kids table.
So this morning at 1:00 A.M. with a replay at 2:30 A.M I watched The Comedy Central Roast of David Hasselhoff Uncensored. I was funny, not the best, so far the Bob Saget roast has been the best, but this one was still good. Other than Lisa Lampanelli, who is always painful to watch, the most painful of the night (again other than the fat bitch Lisa Lampanelli) was Hulk Hogan. Hulk should not have been in there, you would think with all his years doing promos in and out of the ring, and all his movies and his show Thunder in Paradise, you would think he could read his damn lines and not sound like grandpa with alzheimers. But over all is was good, I do think though that the hoff came off back by ending the roast in song, but at least his career isn't alive to see him do that.
So I watch the film 2012 and now I'm sorry I did. It's a weak version of Independence Day with more monuments being destroyed and an even more ridiculous plot. The only good thing about this film was John Cusack, and even he couldn't safe this turd.
Then I watched the "documentary" 2012: Mayan Prophecy and the Shift of the Ages (this was the only website I could find for this waste) this made 2012 look really good. It was made in 2009 with 1980's graphics and some horrid 80's hair metal, add in the fact that the narrator droned on and on and a constant rambling off of numbers that made no sense what so ever. I'm actually kind of proud that I finished this since it was so bad, it takes a lot to finish something this bad.
I just finished Hot Tub Time Machine and all I have to say is it was damn funny and if you haven't seen it yet, then see it! Now off to use Lougle! (If you haven't seen the movie you won't get that joke)
I just finished watching Batman: Under the Red Hood, and other than the fact that the voices weren't the ones from Batman: TAS, it was damn good! I have to admit at first I was thinking this isn't going to be good since the voices are wrong but I was able to get over it fast since it's such a good story! I have the way they mixed "A Death In The Family" and "Under The Hood", what a great idea! I don't know what more I can say it was just good! Oh wait I know what I can say, the cast should have been a little diffent:
Batman/ Bruce Wayne - Kevin Conroy
Alfred Pennyworth - Clive Revill or Efrem Zimbalist, Jr.
The Joker - Mark Hamill
Ra's al Ghul - David Warner
But even though they fucked up the voices a little it was still damn good!
I just finished The Kingdom and now I'm sorry I put off watching it for so long. I was going to write a review for this film here and just copy and paste it to my Netflix account to review it there but then I starting reading other reviews on Netflix and I can't say it any better than fellow Netflix user wgb 767416. So since I know I won't say it any better than him I will just copay and paste his review here and instead of trying myself and not doing this film justice.
So from Netflix user wgb 767416:
"I had the opportunity to attend an advanced screening of The Kingdom and loved it. The film is violent and rather graphic so if you have a weak stomach you might want to pass. Considering the subject matter, I was actually surprised how many times I laughed out loud. The dialogue was very natural, the acting was excellent, and the plot was engaging. Some people have complained that the story starts slow, but I disagree. The film builds to a crescendo, and the last half hour is very intense, but everything leading up to the climax is what really gives this movie its depth. The Kingdom is thought-provoking and timely. As someone who makes a living writing about current affairs I thought it was well balanced, it dealt with a very controversial topic without being political. Rather than attempting to shape public opinion, the filmmakers simply present you with a story and let you draw your own conclusions."
And now back to me oppy:
See I told you I couldn't do it better.
I just finished The French Connection and I don't know what the big deal was. I thought it was boring as hell, I could hardly pay attention. I know for it's time it was "ground breaking" but I just don't know why. And the famous car chase, WTF really, I mean come on that was shit. I'm kind of sorry I rented it now, it was such a let down.
So I just finished the film Rescue Dawn and it was ok. I really have no reason to ever see it again, and I have no reason to recommend it. Also after I finished it I looked up the historical accuracy of the film and it doesn't hold up according to one person who was a prisoner with Dieter Dengler, so if you really want to see the film go ahead but I'm not giving it any recommendations.
So I just finished Repo Men and over all I liked it. I'm not saying I'll buy it anytime soon, but it was worth a rental. Nice action scenes, little bit of moral, and nice twist, not bad. It's worth a rental if you've got some down time.
