I thought Dredd was pretty good. I've never read any of the comics so I don't have much to compare it to, but I liked it. The Judge Dredd character doesn't offer much in the way of acting, but I though Karl Urban did a good job. Olivia Thirlby did an excellent job with her role as the rookie judge. I think the slo-mo drug scenes were overdone a bit, and the badguys weren't very memorable.

Still, the dynamic of the story was good enough that I would have gone and seen a sequel, as long as they kept the same cast.


It stayed pretty darn loyal to the feel of the comics. This one is gold.

I know how that goes... broke the 500 movie count a couple months back. I may have a problem... I love films too much!

The problem is that, between inexpensive movies at Wal-Mart and Costco, and the fact that the rental companies have mostly gone out of business (at least in Canada they have; we lost Blockbuster last year, and a few months ago lost Rogers Video, which both dominated the market), we're encouraged to buy movies. I was walking through Wal-Mart the other day and ended up buying the three first X-Men movies on Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack. Even though I already own the DVDs. Why? Because they were 10$ each and I like having digital copies.

My wife was shopping this week and picked up Avengers. Will probably watch this weekend.

We're on a superhero kick around here. My son recently discovered Superman, so I picked up the dvd 4-pack of the first 4 and Superman Returns on bluray, all fairly cheap, when I picked up The Avengers. Then the next day we got Spiderman 2 & 3 at Target for 5 bucks each. I'm not the biggest Superman and Spiderman fan but the boy loves em right now.

Went to see Lawless last night. I really enjoyed it, although be warned it is a little gory in places.

The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind was beautiful and cathartic.

Why were Bruce Banner and Mary Jane trying to erase The Riddler's memories?

I watched Transformers 3 with some friends last night for the purpose of deciding which of the three was the worst. Apologies to anyone who likes Transformers. Wink

Revenge of the Fallen is the worst, hands down.

We were debating about this afterwards. I thought that the second was the worst due to the irritating humour, but the overlong battle at the end of the third one was tortuous. I was squirming in my seat. In the end we decided that the third was slightly better than the second for the simple reason that it had Buzz Aldrin in it.

The first one was actually a good film, RotF was horrible, and DotM I thought was so-so. It was entertaining to see in theaters, no doubt, but in the same way a Disney World attraction is entertaining. You're not in it for the story or character development, you're in it for the ride.

But even saying that, I still consider Transformers a standalone film. Wink
