I am very distracted by David Tennant's Russell Brand impersonation.

I like either of them otherwise. Just not when they meld together.

Watching Sadako 3D right now. It had a couple of trailers for stuff that looked interesting. I used to be really hardcore into J-Horror but now I'm sort of tiring of the omnipresent recurring themes. I understand the psychology is different there and they need a certain recipe for scary, but I'm tired of checking it all off the list. They still outdo us on suspense, though.

Edit- just about 90% through with it and for some reason the end of this movie, not to give away too many spoilers, is hilarious. They multiplied the onryo, gave them mummy faces with big denture teeth (think of the scene in Poltergeist II when they found the preacher in the cave), and finished it off with a set of giant grasshopper legs. Too fucking funny.

Ah, now I want to see it.

I watched Pacific Rim. As long as you only expect awesome fights between giant robots and giant aliens, it's great.

Sadako 3D was not terribly creepy in the way that Ju-On was. I can only think of one halfway creepy scene in a flashback. It was mainly a lot of 3-D jump scares (you get VERY used to Sadako's hand reaching out at you from a computer screen VERY quickly). The heroine was mostly annoying and had a deus-ex-machina escape mechanism that didn't always make sense ("IyooooooooooOO!"). Also, I had no idea that the idea of a 404 scared the Japanese so much.

The army of Sadakos, though, was fucking hilarious.

Watched RIPD. It was horrible.

I can save you the trouble. It's Ghost, except Ryan Reynolds is Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore is now French. It's Men in Black, except Ryan Reynolds is Will Smith and Jeff Bridges is Tommy Lee Jones.

He had about five minutes of footage. Those were okay.

Trying to get two more Takashi Shimizu movies watched today- shock labyrinth and tormented. Partway through shock labyrinth right now. So far, not a fan.

Edit: I stopped in the middle of Shock Labyrinth because I was sick of it. It was like a feature-length ad for a haunted house. Elements meant to be creepy (someone running down a hallway, her face appearing on the back of her head, suddenly running jerkily backwards toward the camera) just came off as lame. Elements used heavily in other movies (eyes rolling around, eyes going black), were overused and no longer startling. There were only a couple of minor psychological subplots that were disturbing.

I was so pissed I didn't even bother with Tormented.

That sounds kind of cool. Reminds me of Slashers.

I saw Tai Chi Zero last night and really liked it. It was pretty funny and it turns out there are two more films in the series.

I don't know whether it's being preoccupied with an active kid, or if youtube has spoiled me with short clips or what, but I am having a really hard time sitting through an entire movie these days. Just can't keep my attention on it.

Thor: the Dark World? It's a wild sci-fi fantasy trip with loads of action--just what you expect.

Tai Chi Hero was just as much fun as the first one. And it even had Peter Stormare playing a guy named Duke Fleming.

Gravity

One of the best theater experiences i've had. As a movie, it was just ok. Very intense scenes and the pacing was perfect, but dialogue on the other hand was a bit cheesy. The visuals and and the feeling of "being there" more than made up for that. Five stars, easily.

That looks like a Godfrey Ho movie on a higher budget. Love it!

Since the last time I posted I watched quite a few movies.

Trigun: Badlands Rumble is watchable.

Superman vs. the Elite is actually solid.

Nacho Libre actually feels mediocre.

Pi (not the one with the East Indian youth—I’m referring to the one with the disturbed mathematician) is actually an intense little experience.

As for The General (the one with Buster Keaton), I'm honestly not sure what I think of it, though it does have a fair bit going for it.

I am more sure about Frozen, which I went out to see earlier this evening. It's quite good, actually.

mr Kitsa took my kid to see Free Birds (I was sick as hell and not going anywhere) and said it was horrible. He said the theater was full of kids and no one laughed once.

Yeah, even the trailer for that one sucks. Looks like Mr. Peabody & Sherman is the next animated movie I'm seeing in the theater.

I watched the live Rifftrax Christmas shorts special. They found some great ones and the whole show was really good.

Just found out Fitzcarraldo was going to have Mick Jagger in it, and actually did, until they had to start shooting from the beginning all over again. That would've been sonething..
