Just saw Invincible, pretty good movie. Similar to other recent football films, but still very entertaining.

Wedding Crashers was hysterical! And the female love interest in that film was in Invincible, as well.

Wedding Crashers was pretty damned funny for the first two acts at least. When it starts collapsing on itself for the last third Will Ferrel comes in and saves the day.

Which female love interest from Wedding Crashers are you referring to? Neither Rachel McAdams nor Isla Fisher is in Invincible. Are you maybe thinking of the girl who played Beth in 40-Year-Old Virgin?

I finally got to see Bloodrayne. It was almost as bad as Ultraviolet, but not quite. I think Uwe would have a good career in New Zealand making episodes of Xena or whatever the latest spin off is. It just had that feel to it, apart from the sex scene. Whoever cast the film should be sacked, however.

Also saw the Call of Cthulhu, by the HP Lovecraft Historical Society. Top little film that, very in the spirit of old silent films especially the outrageous sets.

Crank

Jason Stratham is a hitman who wakes up to find he's been injected with a chinese synthetic poison that will kill him if his heart rate isn't racing.

Roll on a full on action flick where he's out to get the people who killed him, but to stay alive he has to keep his adrenaline levels up.

It's completely stupid, no plot movie with outrageous action "Speed" without a bus. Jason Stratham is perfect as the hitman wisecracking arse kicking hero.

The camera work can be annoying, but it's one hell of a fun ride.

I like that one too. But I think Owen Wilson talks kind of funny. First time I noticed him was in Meet The Parents. I thought that it was his character's way of talking. Now I've realized that's the way he sounds.

The Day of the Triffids

Not the 1962 movie, but the 1981 BBC TV adaptation. I've never seen a better series about mobile carnivorous plants taking over the world.

No, seriously, it's really good.

His nose has been broken a few times in his life. It looks crooked. I wonder if that affects how he sounds?

Hooray, another fan.

It's an excellent adaptation, though I seem to remember that the pacing is a little off. Half of the book is crammed into the last episode! Still, it's a much better use of the source material than the 60s B-movie - not that that takes much doing. It really makes me wish the BBC had more than 50p in their special effects budget, though - as usual, any imagery requiring them (in this case, the ravages of time on London) is evoked by dialogue alone.

To stick with the post-apocalyptic theme, I re-watched the BBC's Threads last night (featuring possibly the world's most typecast actress). Nowhere near as good as I remember it being - the short-term impact of the nuclear strike is brilliantly and chillingly done, but the long-term effects strike me as rather too pessimistic.

Still, thank God we probably no longer have to worry about the Russians letting off nuclear bombs on our faces, even if it would mean getting rid of Sheffield.

I saw Look Up in the Sky: The Amazing Story of Superman today.
A brilliant documentary, I liked it very much, especially the later part of the movie.

Yeah, OTH was definitely my favorite of the summer films we took my niece and nephews to. Also bought them the game version for the GameCube...loved that, too.
