    Well, that was the last one I saw in public. The last movie I saw on TV was "Q Planes", a British action/mystery/thriller from the 1930s with Laurence Olivier and Ralph Richardson. It's an enjoyable movie with a fun script, and you get to see Henry V blasting down bad guys with a belt-fed BAR.

    Volcano: The one where lava covers Los Angeles, so Tommy Lee Jones gets all grumpy and tells it to go away right now.
    Kiki-Gonn and Darth_Invidious like this.

    A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III

    Never have I wanted my money back more from an On Demand rental, only I knew what I was getting into. I have a crush on Mary Elizabeth Winstead and feel compelled in an entirely OCD way to see everything she's in.

    Her career has come full circle it seems. From supporting roles in unsuccessful horror movies to leading roles in unsuccessful movies to supporting roles in unsuccessful movies to cameo appearances in unsuccessful movies.

    Not yet 30 even, and already heading toward doing bit parts on network procedural crime dramas.

    Last Action Hero

    Fun, with some good laughs, but way too long. Awesome quote from the Schwarzenegger though (as he takes out the lead villain): "No sequel for you!"

    THIS IS SPINAL TAP

    I had never noticed the lens flare in it before... until the riots, caused by JJ Abrams, amongst the droves of basement dwellers generated awareness of this perceived blight on filmmaking.

    I love Q-Planes. Ralph Richardson's character was the inspiration for John Steed in The Avengers (the 60's TV show, not the Marvel Comics property!), iirc.

    Django Unchained.


    It was the usual Tarantino type of thing, immensely violent but also at times quite funny. Nice to see DiCaprio play a villain, he does it well. The stand-out performer was Sam Jackson as the old butler, he was crazy.
    It did go a bit downhill and OTT at the end, but that's Tarantino for you. It also felt like it was longer than it needed to be and the fact the N-word was used almost every other sentence in the movie makes me believe Tarantino was trying to be shocking and radical by using a taboo words excessively (again, typical of him).

    Also has one of the best villain lines of all time:

    "If God were evil, he would be me."

    Finally saw Skyfall in the cheap theater. Great, great movie.

    The Matrix Revolutions

    I love it! More than Return of the Jedi. More than Revenge of the the Sith. More than The Dark Knight Rises. More than Three Colors: Red. Way more than The Last Crusade. But not more than 2046.

    Flight: pretty good film. Kind of bittersweet.

    Django Unchained-

    Enjoyable, if you find QT's peculiar niche enjoyable, but nowhere near as artful as Inglorious Basterds (opening sequence, basement scene, etc.).
    It was basically just the more juvenile stuff from IB but in a different setting. Still thumbs up though.

    Hot Rod: This film is a little too close to home for me since I had a cousin who was a stunt man, and he did a stunt off of two elephants and got decapitated by one of the tusks while his moped exploded causing him to burst into flames. He was later eaten by hyenas. I was crying tears of sadness throughout the entire movie. I just want to be alone now.

    Haywire. Not Soderbergh's best movie, but definitely not his worst, either. Entertaining and gratifying for its straightforward approach to action scenes. Gina Carano - now she would make a great Jedi or bounty hunter in Ep VII.

    The Breakfast Club.
    Detention seems so fun. You get to hang out in an awesome library all day long. You may even be able to finish a whole reference book! Those are awesome but can't be checked out.

    Flight

    A decent movie with a solid performance by Denzil Washington, dealing with the harshness of alcohol & drug addiction.


    The Last Stand

    Arnie realy struggles to carry movies as a lead these days, he's better-off in Expendables type stuff. It was OK but pretty generic and predictable.
