    I have the Connery box-set, but the only other Bond I have on DVD is Casino Royale. Of course, living in England, the Bond movies are shown very regularly, so I've seen them all at least a half dozen times (excepting the later films).

    I will definitely be adding Skyfall to my DVD collection when it comes out.

    I had the VHS collection up to The Living Daylights when I was a kid, so I've seen my share of Bond too. :)

    At least it's bookended by two fairly robust flicks.

    The Hamilton/Mankiewicz trilogy is arguably more dire. Brosnan's post GoldenEye run is the series at its most generic and uninteresting though. John Glen wasn't a very good filmmaker, but his films are a fair bit more adventurous and progressive than those ostensibly better productions.

    I know the comment was in jest, but at the very least Moonraker purdy and well-scored. And Drax gets some fantastic dialogue that Lonsdale conveys beautifully.

    Me and my son saw Wreck It Ralph today. It was my second time seeing it since I screened it at work. 2nd time was just as good as the first. If you have small ones you shouldn't miss it.

    I forgot: Casino Royale

    Idk how to compare it to other Bond movies because I haven't watched them.

    Hmm, you didn't find Lonsdale to be totally phoning it in? I find it hard to find a single moment when he gives even a modicum of a ****. You know, to be vulgar about it.

    Maybe that's the appeal. Wood's lines still register, though. Jurgens is arguably more guilty of this.

    I've seen several films recently.

    'The Campaign', a terrible Will Ferrel effort. It tries to be topical but Ferrel wants to enact his crazy frat boy personality and consider it satire. The intent and the execution are muffled. The result is an immature film that thinks despite it's gratuitous gross out humor is profound.

    'The Black Cat', brilliant Karloff/Lugosi pairing that shows the best of the golden age of horror films. The production relishes in the macabre to the utmost extremities. The production design is gorgeous and the subject matter is all about sexual perversions which not so subtly got past some clueless censors. Yet, what makes the film are the titans of terror duking it out. I'm a Lugosi guy and he is cast against type as a scarred hero and he is exceptional in the role.

    I tried to watch AOTC around the dull moments of election coverage last night, and just couldn't. The fireplace scene defeated me. :(

    Finally saw Rango (2011) by Gore Verbinski today. WOW! What a beautiful looking film! It was so originally composed visually, all the while payed referencing the Western genre with an unparalleled attention to detail.

    That wonderful character design, every single one of them. I haven't been this mesmerised by an animated film's character design since The Incredibles. Priscilla's hypnotizing eyes alone stole the show.

    Really want to see Lincoln tonight. Really want to see Skyfall tonight. Am paralyzed by indecision.

    Tried to see Skyfall, but encountered a rare event: all showtimes were sold out hours in advance- something I've never run up against before outside of NYC.

    Granted, this is due to another local theater still being without power (forcing many, like myself, to resort to the MC dine-in theater at the mall), but, still. Had to settle for a 10:45 tomorrow since all other screenings tomorrow lacked seats worthy of the dine-in cost/were also sold out.

    The last time that happened to me was when I went to see Avatar on my birthday.

    Just finished Ep. IV.

    Man, I'm jealous. I have to wait a week until Lincoln comes out here, since I apparently live in the sticks.

    Just for kicks, I watched Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter- next best thing, right? Wrong. I'd give it a half star out of four.

    Yeah, as fun a premise as it is (and nicely interweaves it's story through history in an entertaining concept) and as stylish as it is, AL:VH was really dissapointing. It's like they just rushed through everything and never tried to let anything have any impact. It's just empty action- must be what it's like for picky people to watch a Michael Bay movie ;).

    It really wasn't good, at all.

    Hanna. It ended rather abruptly, but apart from that it was cool.

    The Amazing Spider-Man. I really enjoy this movie.
