    Hey what's Star Trek doing on there?

    kidding the commercial looks good, very dark.

    November is looking like a good month for movies!... added 2 more that really look interesting... Repo! The Genetic Opera and Twilight.

    Nov 7th - Repo! The Genetic Opera http://www.comingsoon.net/films.php?id=22928 ... This is a bizarre Cyberpunk'esk view of the future, and completely a musical. Very different.

    Nov 15th - Quantum of Solace http://www.comingsoon.net/films.php?id=15549 ... the latest of the Bond saga. There is no way this could be a bad movie, is there?

    Nov 21st - Twilight http://www.comingsoon.net/films.php?id=38003 ... Buffy loved a Vampire, well, so does the leading lady in this movie. Also, It's a different kind of vampire.

    Nov 26th - Fanboys http://www.comingsoon.net/films.php?id=14935 ... The long awaited movie about Geeks going to Lucas Ranch to to "borrow" Episode I, before it goes to the big screen, so their dying friend can see it.

    QoS looks awesome. I am not a Bond fan but thoroughly enjoyed Casino Royale.

    Fanboys should be good but I wonder how impactful it will be as its clearly no longer contemporary but since we aren't removed enough from the setting its not really nostalgic either.

    I will be glad when I never ever have to hear about Twilight again.

    That could be a while as there are 4 books and Twilight is only the first. Personally I am half looking forward to it and half worried they ruined it.

    December
    (5th) Punisher: War Zone
    (12th) The Day the Earth Stood Still
    (25) The Spirit

    City of Ember was far better then expected. I really enjoyed it and the way the story progressed. For me it had a feel of two very different movies (and I know others will probably disagree). It had a touch of Whoville from the Grinch who stole Christmas, in the way the city was layed out, and how the people all got along and behaved. Also there was a feel of Logans Run, with the way the city was isolated and knew nothing of an outside world. I could go on, but why spoil a pretty good story.

    Saw the one day only viewing of bleach the Movie: Memories of Nobody on Monday... It was very good. I enjoyed it a lot. Of course, I'd seen a lot of Bleach already, so I knew about it. Basically, Two universes are about to collide, and Ichigo will be the one to save the day!

    I must say, I was disapointed with the Anime fans. The theatre was near empty! That would never happen for a Star Wars event! lol
