We were bored and knew it would be hilarious, wasn't ever expecting it to be good, it was exactly what I expected, absolutely terrible, and even funnier than I ever could of imagined. Not sure what was funnier the film or the number of MTV Movie Awards it got

Or the fact that anyone puts stock in the MTV Movie Awards.

MTV Movie Awards are terrible and yet funny for all the wrong reasons

Seems like a lot of things are.

Sometimes I'm in the mood for that kind of stuff, as long as I don't have to pay to see it

I do want to know what some people think of Drag Me to Hell, it looks like a ton of fun, and Raimi for sure returning to his roots, I was definitely going to watch it on DVD but I'm considering a matinee during its run. I expected it to be what it is, a sure-fire cult movie, but never did I expect a 95% on RT, good going critics, way to lighten up once in awhile.

It's worth it to see with a group of friends who have no idea what they're walking into. One of my friends came out of it loving it and I loaned him the Evil Dead series right on the spot, while the other had a decent enough time.

It totally feels like it exists in the same universe as that series, too; although it's more in line with the second film than the first. Hell, I kind of wish that there was some crossover in the works.

Speaking of Raimi:

Darkman > Spider-Man 2

Yeah, I said it. At least the former creates its own mythology, does so in a fresh and creative fashion (on a limited budget, mind you) and doesn't have a bunch of post-9/11 rah-rah NYC! NYC! USA! USA! bullshit. Plus Liam Neeson. Frances McDormand. Larry Drake. 'nuff said.

Australia

This shit feels longer than Gone With the Wind. And I still have another hour to go!

At least Hugh Jackman is pretty, which is everything I expected out of the film.

I actually enjoyed the second half of the film a lot. Actually, after the bumpy first 30 minutes I was involved.

I'm not sure posting online in the middle of the film makes for the optimum viewing experience, though.

That's just a sure sign the movie's not holding my attention.

I do tend to do that a lot, though. However, with this movie, I'm fairly comfortable that I'm not missing a lot of nuance that calls for strict attention.

The movie really wasn't that bad. Just unnecessarily long. It felt like it could have been two separate movies. One about the cattle drive, one about the war.

I couldn't even finish it to be honest. It was on the level of "Unbearable childish talking-animal Dreamworks horse-shit" for me. And I gave it a fair shake too, I watched about an hour of it. Aside from some impressive animation I found absolutely nothing to like. The Toy Story movies lose some points for similar reasons, especially Toy Story 2, though those films make up for it more with at least a little creativity and imagination. Aside from maybe Wall-E, I think Up was the first Pixar film to really strike a successfully functional storytelling balance between mature subtext and more kid-friendly accessible plot and humor. Really the only flaw I have with the film is the villain who is completely under-explored. Even Russell was effective, and he had one of the more powerful moments in the film when he was talking about his Pa.

Then again, I'm not really a Pixar fan. I only really like maybe half of their films, and am not in love with any of them. And they're still probably the best American animation studio. Sad.

I watched part of Titanic on tv last night. Some of the lines read by some of the actors made me cringe so hard I was afraid I'd permanently damage my facial muscles. The lines themselves, plus the way they were read...
