Got to see Diary of the Dead this evening. It's the second time I've seen it and it gets better each time I see it.
I remember my dream now.

I caught Jumper on Friday... interesting, to say the least. I'd say it's more of a rent/buy on DVD flick. Also, Samuel L. Jackson has this awful wig that makes him look like Sisqo. Made me and my friends chuckle.

I finally was able to catch Juno last night. It really was an enjoyable flick, and is deserving of all the praise it has recieved. Ellen Page was great. I really don't think it is possible for Michael Cera to play character that is not incredibly awkward.

Watched Vantage Point last night.  I enjoyed it very much.  It didn't have a single dull moment.  Good stuff.

I saw vantage point yesterday and although I wasn't disappointed overall, there was one thing that bugged me and I had figured it out really early on in the movie.

I think I've just seen way too many of this type of movie.

The wife and I took the day off and went and caught No Country For Old Men.  I thoroughly enjoyed it, but had to apologize to my wife all afternoon for making her sit through such a violent film.  I'd read some reviews, and knew the last 20 minutes of the film kind of take a left turn, and left a lot of people scratching their heads.  But I thought the ending was great and really showed the movie isn't about the $2 million or a psychopathic hitman, but it's really about fate & chance and whether or not we can control fate & chance with the decisions we make.  I thought the cinematography was beautiful (but I've always been partial to west Texas & New Mexico), and the landscape may have been one of the most important characters in the film.

I give the film an enthusiastic thumbs-up!  Now, I haven't seen any of the other films that were nominated for Best Picture, but I have no argument against the Best Picture win for No Country at the 2008 Academy Awards.  The casting was spot-on for the most part.  Tommy Lee Jones was made for these kinds of roles.  Josh Brolin did a fantastic job as a man who constantly made dumb decisions.   And Javier Bardem is probably the scariest man on the planet.  If he walked into my office or my house, I swear I'd just shoot myself and save him the trouble.  I think even Chuck Norris would soil himself if he had to face Chigurh.   I will admit, though, that it was jarring when "Woody Boyd" and "Jimmy James" showed up on screen.  Plus I thought the cancer-ridden mother-in-law seemed too much like a caricature, like Vicki Lawrence on Mama's Family.

Anyway, great, great film!  I think I love the Coen Brothers.

So I Am Legend comes out on DVD in a couple of weeks.... Anyone getting it? For those that are on the fence, check out the amazing alternative ending, much closer to the theme of the book.

I picked up I Am Legend, 3:10 to Yuma, and No Country for Old Men over the past couple of weeks. Only watched the first two so far.

The slighty extended I Am Legend was good, but not much more than that little end part. Seeing the hand Grenade ending a second time made me glad it was in the film, as it was much more heroic and badass than the alternate ending.

I went out on a limb and purchased 3:10 (hadn't seen it, looked good) and it was $20 well spent. Russell Crowe was very believable as a Southern Cowboy guy, lots of terrific action, and a surprising fate for the hero character. I hope No Country is just as good.

I recently watch 3:10 to Yuma and thought it was fabulous. Christian Bale continues to prove he's one of the best actors in Hollywood. Also Ben Foster (Charlie Price) was a bad ass! Hard to believe that this is the same guy who play Angel in X-Men The Last Stand.

Got out to my first movie in a while, the Bank Job. Well worth seeing, fun movie.

Watched No Country for Old Men today... I thought it was really good. Very interesting, and I'm probably going to pick up the book soon. Now, I watch a lot of horror movies, but I haven't been scared by any character more that the killer in No Country. That actor... his performance... scared me shitless.

The Bank Job was a much better movie than No Country for Old Men.
