Shoot 'em Up: caught a matinee this morning, fucking insane. Laugh out loud funny, with some of the most creative gunplay acrobatics ever. I must have blurted out "Holy shit!" like 5 times.

Well worth the price of admission, though don't expect anything substantial.

Oh yeah, in case you were wondering, Clive Owen is STILL the baddest motherfucker currently in cinema.

I saw the sex scene/gun fight online yesterday. Looks pretty ridiculous and awesome. My friends I'm going out with tonight really want to see this instead of Yuma, but I might just stand my ground and see Yuma alone if need be. I simply can't afford to spend money on movies I don't really want to see.

Lance, I saw your review for Shoot Em Up
sorry you watched a crappy film.

I can only hope I will enjoy it, because I've been looking forward to it for a while.

the worst thing I saw in the theater was Apocalypto, it was so bad I started fidgeting cause I was tired of sitting and having to watch it. My brother chose to see it and of course wanted to watch it all, but it was painful to watch it in its entirety.

One friend I was with loved it, another hated it like me, and two others I think were sort of luke-warm towards it.

Another group of my friends ended up going to the exact same show oddly enough, and 3 out of 4 of them liked it. so that's about 50/50 in/out of favor for it, so I couldn't begin to say whether or not you'd enjoy it.

As for Apocalypto, I sort of enjoyed it. It was completely ridiculous, and one of the most insane films I've ever seen, but there was something attractive about it. There was some real tension in the film despite being completely batshit crazy. Still far from a great film though.

I can't wait for the Director's Cut of Death Proof on DVD.

I'm waiting for the inevitable Clive Owen-Sam Jackson pairing. That'll be one for the ages.

Hopefully the audience's heads will all explode and it will mark the end of the not-short-enough-lived "Let's make a shitty movie on purpose because it's kool" genre.

I love Samuel L but he's not in Clive's league.

In my opinion, that is.

Not every movie's going to be a cinematic achievement though. If there wasn't a Road House-level great ridiculous movie every year or two, my head would explode from boredom.

At this point, Clive and Sam are about tied in the Badass Top 5, then there's Kurt Russell, who blows them both out of the water.

Clive can do bad-ass, but he can do drama, too. He's a talented mother fucker. That's right. He most likely banged your Mom.

Mama LMP loves Clive Owen... that may be why.

Children of Men ftw.

But Shoot 'Em Up is a boring movie. This is a completely different beast from Road House. Road House is a bad movie for completely different reasons, which makes it reasonably enjoyable. I'm sick of movies that try to be "bad" by design in order to cash in on the Snakes On A Plane "15-to-25-year-old-dudes-who-think-it's-cool-to-like-crap-movies" trend of the last couple years. It's the kind of joke that worked well once, and only then because the script of the movie was genuinely awful, not by design.

Road House has a character utter "I used to fuck guys like you in prison". Sorry, but that's not going to get topped anytime soon.
