I just saw Serenity, and it rocked!

But my parents thought it was Star Wars rip-off...

Today, I have mostly been watching...

Batman Begins: Great. I really liked watching the disintegration of Gotham City and Bruce Wayne's development. Must agree with SJH though, the second half didn't really live up to the promise of the first. But man, isn't the dark version of Gotham a great place to set a movie?

The second half of League of Gentlemen's Apocalypse. I enjoyed the 'medieval' sketch a lot (the screaming brought my flatmate into the room and we watched it together), but after that it all went a little bit poo again. Much better than the terrible first half, though, so all in all I thought the film was merely "bleah" rather than "argh".

It also showed me that 'Royston Vasey' is within the Greater Manchester Public Transport Executive area, and I geekily went there over the weekend.

Last film I saw, in theaters, was Elizabethtown. I love all of Cameron Crowe's work, and this was no exception. A funny, quirky romp. Last at home movie would be Batman Begins. The perfect Batman movie is finally mine. Bring on the sequel with Paul Bettany/Lachy Hulme's Joker and Penguin(maybe, and as an arms dealer).

I saw that a few months ago. It's the biggest Halloween ripoff ever. The camera setups, the editing, the music, and the killer, too...accept he looks like flour sack head Jason instead of the Shape.

I got to see Serenity on Saturday!

The best movie in 2005, it was pure Joss Whedon gold. I enjoyed every frigging second of it. I think that I'll go watch it again when and if it arrives to Vaasa in December, that way I can compare our shitty theater audio to the high class audio that was at CineWolrd in London.

Just saw The Machinist, damn good movie but need to watch it again just to work out what the hell happened in it! And man, Christian Bale is unrecognisable....can't believe he lost that much weight!

Next on the list is Saw 2. Heard that it opens with a guy with his head trapped in a cage that'll crush his skull in a few minutes time....
Spoiler:
...and the only way he can remove it is with a key that is implanted behind his eye. It's gouging time!

The freakiest thing about Christian Bale is that he lost so much weight for The Machinist and right after he had finished that movie, he began to bulk up for Batman Begins.

That's one crazy man, I tell ya.

Too right, read an interview after he did that movie, his wife was unsurprisingly kicking off at him for putting his health at so much risk.

Doom. No fan of the games. Fun movie though.

Just seen this tonight. Great film, very inventive - nasty, but it doesn't quite feel gratuitous. Have to watch the first one on DVD now!

The first one was decent, but heard the second was one of those rare sequels that takes the ideas of the first and improves on them while removing a lot of the flaws. Must see it, need to feed gorehound inside me! Got Wolf Creek to watch next.

I just saw Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang. Ah, what a great movie!

It's one of those light-hearted, dark comedy type detective stories, like an Elmore Leonard novel (Get Shorty, etc.). Funny, violent, sexy, and deliciously R-rated. From the extremely stylish Bond-inspired title credits to the final gratuitous joke, this film is a great ride.

And it's so good to see Robert Downey Jr. working again. Such a great actor, such a wasted (*ahem*) talent usually.

I def. want to see that given my love of Noir. I also want to check out Saw II. I liked bits and pieces of the first one(esp. the ending), but I've heard this one is a better movie, and has one cringe inducing scene near the end. It raked in $30 million in 3 days, so we'll def. get a Saw III next year given it only cost $4 million.

The last thing I saw was The Baxter.

S'not really a film noir, though. At all. The sensibility is much more upbeat.

I watched Monsters Inc. recently.
I knew that it is a good movie, but I had no idea that it is that good!

Tone has little to do with it. Every review I've read calls it a Noir..including the stars and director.
