Didn't see Wall-E but did go to Wanted Thursday night.  Awesome movie.  Plenty of action, good story, McAvoy was pretty awesome in the film.  Even had some funny moments.

The visuals were incredible.  The trailer touts that you'll see things you haven't seen before and I would agree with that.  Maybe not new FX tech like the Matrix gave us, just an interesting use of existing stuff to pull off new stunts and sleek visuals.

There Will be Blood was probably the most awesome-looking film I've ever seen (and I don't even have a great tv or anything). And paired with the dissonant soundtrack, the movie was even more foreboding. The story was a little thin, but Daniel Day-Lewis more than made up for any minuses.



Being an engineer geek, the oil drilling scenes and look of the whole thing was agreeably awesome looking.  I still think it was the best film of last year

Neither do I. It's not a very good trailer. The only reason why I'm remotely curious is because of the original.

I don't know... The original "The Day The Earth Stood Still" is one of my favorite movies ever, but this just doesn't work for me. It doesn't seem to have the feel of the original. I'll have to wait and see.

Saw Get Smart last night and it was pretty good.  If you're a fan of Steve Carell, you'll definitely like this.  Had more action than I thought it would and he less of a bumbling goof than the previews make him out to be.  Good popcorn flick for action and some laughs.

Also saw Hancock earlier this week.  I thought the set up was good, liked the premise, and Will Smith really gets into character as always.  Supporting cast was good too, but the plot twist was a little anti-climatic for me.  They could have done a lot more with it and it became fairly predictible.  I'd give it a C - didn't hate it, but wouldn't see it again.

From this moment for all my life. What could I say? Was born to be this way. And what could I say?  Just livin' for today

I saw Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson earlier tonight. It was a very solid flick and I'd recommened it to all fans of the Gonzo great, or anyone who is even remotely curious about him.

I just caught Get Smart as well. I think Alan Arkin's performance is gravely under appreciated, made me laugh every time we saw him.

If one of those isn't a fan made deal, I'm thinking someone has a pound of their ass hanging on their boss' wall.
