See, my big worry is that after seeing the reviews, I summed the movie up as:

3 dudes get powers, 2 dudes love it, one guy gets all cuts-himself emo...they fight, emo kid dies. the end.

I hope Im wrong.

Wait.  3 people get powers, two enjoy (abuse) the powers, one gets emo.  Emo dies.  Why would you hope you're wrong?  Sounds like the best possible ending for such a flick!

I can see why it's so popular.

I have been called bad before. Many have said I do things that are not correct to do. I don't believe in talk such as this. I am nice man, with happy feelings... all of the time!

Just watched Dawn of the Dead... Zombies were too agile.
Snyder version I take it?

Asteriktos, have you seen Tucker and Dale vs. Evil? Seems like it might be up your alley.

Haven't seen that one, but I'll keep my eye out for it, thanks for the recommendation :)

I got and enjoyed Ostrov, well worthing seeing again and again.

Now for secular films, I will not be seeing the Burton/Depp Dark Shadows, when it opens in May.  Loved the originial gothic soap opera, but the trailer for this film makes me sick.  Too much humor and the sexual tone is not to my liking.

I've said it elsewhere: the only people who didn't realize the original Dark Shadows was a comedic farce were the writers and its original fans. ;)

The so-called camp in the original series was due to the fact it was filmed live and with the budget, ABC gave Dan Curtis, retakes were impossible.  I'm not a fan of the work of Burton.  Depp sounds like, in this trailer, Captain Jack Sparrow with fangs.  lol

Fair enough.  I just think it's incredibly sub-par writing and filming, especially for network television at the time.  Any BBC series of the 60s, which were filmed with far less talent, time, money, and skill, stand up better than the original Dark Shadows. 

Aside from Planet of the Apes, I have seen every film Burton has ever directed and, with the exception of Batman Returns, I enjoyed each one at first viewing.  One could say I'm a mark for him, esp. when he directs Johnny Depp.

I'm just going to chalk this up to a "You had to be there" type situation.   ;)
This has to be one of the more enjoyable back and forths in a long time.

Agreed.  Who says forums aren't a spectator sport?

Really?  You should see the posts on the web, both pro and con for this Burton movie.  Its anything but enjoyable.  The bickering is pathetic.

Was talking specifically about yours and Schultz's.

I had no idea Burton was doing a film based on Dark Shadows.

You thought The Dark Knight was too long?

Hmm, well I don't know if it was too long so much as it feels long to me... I suppose if I was more into the batman stuff maybe it wouldn't... after all, I am perfectly fine with LOTR...

I'm a mark for Batman and even I thought it was a bit too long. 

But I also am not a fan of Heath Ledger's Joker, so that automatically puts me in the minority.

I watched Shaolin last night on netflix. It is really good. Probably the best kung fu movie I've ever seen. It was a great story of redemption and repentance. I highly recommend it.

That's longer than the book.  :eek:
And alot harder to find. I searched for it for 5 years and found it being sold in Brazil. Luckily, because of my time in portugal, I recognized enough of the description to know it was what I wanted. $100 later, it was on a plane to me :0

Mentioned this elsewhere, but I'm making plans to buy a copy of Bubba Ho-Tep from my local Books-a-Million.

Also, I'm looking into buying a copy of Night of the Creeps. Good B horror movie from the 80s. Very funny. Usually intentionally.
