    Basically agree on what Scoot said about Hulk.

    Speed Racer surrised me. Once u get used to the cartoon world its quite fun. The races i liked a lot. The acting and plot are stupid, but the races were kinda fun, so overall I like dit. I came out witha grin.

    Its a bad movie, but its fun.

    That's what I was trying to tell you when the trailers were released! :p

    EDIT: Apparently I'm seeing Hancock at a preview screening on June 30. :D

    So Stan Winston has passed away.

    This has hit me pretty hard. Massive fan of his work, and am actually in the middle of reading a fantastic book on him at the moment. This guy created all these fantastic film icons that will live on for ages. Terminator. Aliens. Predator. Dinosaurs from Jurassic Park, all the way up to his latest efforts with the Practical suit from Iron Man. Stan Winston was a true pioneer in his field and can only hope that the Stan Winston studio carries on in great tradition.

    Apart from WETA and KNB, Stan Winston studios is one of the few remaining practical effects houses. Dam I miss that stuff. CGI will never replace the magic that is practical effects. Nor should it ever.

    I saw Sex and the City last Friday with my cousin from Canada, who has never seen an ep. We both enjoyed it thoroughly, for me it was like reuniting with an old friend. Simply awesome!

    Taking advantage of cheapass Tuesday, the bf and I went and saw Prince Caspian last night. I loved it, but then I grew up on the books. He hadn't seen the first movie, but he still enjoyed it. Might have to drag out the dvd this weekend.

    saw the incredible hulk yesterday, norton was a good choice for banner but i thought the betty ross character was kinda useless... it was a bit like iron man, setting up future villains and stuff. plus the iron man cameo was pretty cool

    Just saw GET SMART. It wasn't perfect, but haven't laughed that much watching a movie for a while. The jokes are older than most of the people in the audience, but if it ain't broke ...

    Big thumbs up. Run out and see it!

    Really? All the reviews I've read quote Max's line "Missed it by that much", which is why I decided to see Iron Man again instead of Get Smart on the weekend. Well, that and pairing 25-year-old Anne Hathaway with 46-year-old Steve Carell. Creepy.

    EDIT: Okay, before I start hyperventalating, someone else please check this out:

    Does anyone else see sessions for The Dark Knight on Wednesday July 16?

    Seems to only be at Chatswood, which I don't mind if it means I'll get to see this movie before jetting off for 7 weeks.

    Why would Get Smart NOT have that line ???

    It's not Get Smart Begins, it's mel brook's Get Smart with a new cast.

    And the age issue is part of the storyline.

    I think Ki means that the reviews have been using that line to describe that the movie 'Missed it by that much'

    Went to the movies today and I wasn't expecting to see the CGI Star Wars Clone Wars trailer... I was impressed! It looked absolutely awesome and I wasn't expecting to hear Samuel L Jackson voicing Mace.

    Anyway so that was the only trailer of note, the movie I saw was Get Smart which I thoroughly enjoyed!!

    Thanks Rebel. :)

    Saw Hancock (and Keh too!) last night. Could have easily been a re-hash of My Super Ex-Girlfriend but it turned out to be it's own entertaining flick. To quote the movie, "Good job". :p

    Ah ok. My mistake.


    I can see why critics might say that, but everyone in the cinema loved it. And isn't that what a Get Smart movie is all about ? :)

    Going to a double bill tonight, Batman Begins followed by TDK. Excited doesn't cover the feeling I have right now. Especially since my two weeks leave begins in just one day. ONE DAY! ... *clap clap* ... that's an in-joke for those of you playing at home.

    Just saw Dark Knight. I'm going with Kevin Smith's non-spoiler review -- this movie is The Godfather Part II. It's brilliant. My only qualms are the sonar technology gimmick (too cartoony for such a gritty crime movie) and killing off Two Face after so much time spent developing Harvey Dent (though I hold some small hope that he's still around). Other than that I CANNOT complain about this film.

    And anyone planning to take kids along, it's pretty violent/gruesome, some kids might not be able to handle it. Some adults might not be able to handle it too! :p

    EDIT: Clone Wars trailer was attached to our showing. WB logo on a Star Wars film still creeps me out.

    Enjoy the trip :D Nice trailer too, loved the use of the proper Terminator theme!


    As far as The Dark Knight is concerned, I'm still a little undecided on whether I liked it, or REALLY liked it. It was very much more Heat than Batman, and I really missed the character development for Batman, but otherwise a bloody brilliant film. Really enjoyed ALL the cast, Heath Ledger and Aaron Eckhart especially! Definetly going to catch it again, and then probably in Imax!

    I'm not fussed about the Terminator trailer... but a trailer I'm still undecided about is This unnecessary re-make, I just hope that it is huge departure from the original

    TDK was a pleasant surprise. I may even have to see it again.

    Heath's Joker was amazing. Worth the price of admission alone.
