Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 2  :angel:
Just watched Part 1 last night so now I'm stoked for Part 2!
The first part is really intense!
I know my hand was sore at the end from clinching the whole time! It had been so long since I'd seen a new HP that I was blown away by how far they've come. I don't like theaters though so I hope Pt2 gets to DVD quick.
We need to talk . . .
Shoot my friend ...

Oh I finally got around to seeing Dead Man and I'll admit at first I turned it off; I wasn't in the right mood. Went back a few days later and was surprised I got bored the first time. Each scene in itself sometimes confused me or got real slow, but when you start putting them together and see it as a larger piece, the beauty becomes apparent. I heard your slow moving comment but didn't take it to heart like I should've. Overall I was glad I watched it.
I'm still dying to see Meek's Cutoff! Since you mentioned it I've read so many great reviews.  I might have to take a trip to BBuster since you can't stream it on the Flix.

I think this was the weirdest movie I have ever seen. Very thought provoking yet, so bizarre that at several times of the film, I doubted the sanity of the director. It does, however, make for a good post-credits discussion.

Many young people probably find it impossible to believe that Eddie Murphy was once funny.
ppl loose there ability to be funny when they get old
George Carlin is absolute proof this ain't true. And the best folks usually just die before they get old. We brilliantly hilarious people come from backgrounds where the environment ate away the parts of our brains which do not allow certain juxtapositions to be made, thus giving the ability to put together surprising and humorous elements together, often mixing the banal with the vulgar.

The other part of losing that part of your brain is that you are probably going to drink and drug yourself to an early grave or just go a more direct path of suicide.

All great comedy comes from people who were put through the grinder and were able to laugh while it happened.

Except dear old George, who had a lovely childhood, sane adult life, and long and wonderful marriage.

May his memory be eternal.

Don't forget the cocaine.  But yes, may his memory be eternal.

In a diaper...

Some say he did it because he was tired of being Bond and wanted to ruin the image.

Heard of - Yes.  Seen - No.

Debating on getting Netflix or finding a Blockbusters that is still around.  Haven't seen Seven Samurai and Yojimbo for quite some time.

Eddie Murphy is funny when he's done voice work like Donkey in Shrek... at least we think so in our family.  ;)

Cars 2  and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows pt. 2

I enjoyed both of them very much.

I also saw (via NetFlix) the "Mythbusters" where they take on and bust the "Moon Landings never happened" myths... Lots of fun.

Yesterday, I watched a DVD I got from Rent Anime, "Visions of Suffering." It was a live-action movie. It's a very, very creepy Russian horror film about vampires. It's shot as if you're looking through a keyhole. That'd be fine now and then, but for over two hours it was hard to take. A bit too tacky for me. Very frightening, but too off-kilter to be something I'd want to see again. I've got to see something happy today to make up for it.  :)

Very good. On par with the other Marvel Studios films (except Iron Man 2, which was pretty meh in comparison). I also saw Good Night, and Good Luck, which was very well-done, if a tad slow-paced.

So is it comparable to Thor then? I LOVED Thor.

I saw Captain America yesterday, too!


It was a fairly typical Marvel movie, but not a bad summer flick. I was talking about more innovation or something and my husband rolled his eyes. I never read Marvel comics, and I suppose that the true comparison lies in its faithfulness to the original Captain America stories.

But yes, as a woman, I bumped up the rating a little bit.  ;) Hello! Chris Evans looked quite dashing in that role. I also loved the period clothing in general as well.

I just ordered Zardoz from the rental service. I expect it should be fun.  :)
