I watched lately:

Ostrov (Russian: The Island) - Somewhere in Northern Russia in a small Russian Orthodox monastery lives an unusual man (a holy fool!) whose bizarre conduct confuses his fellow monks, while others who visit the island believe that the man has the power to heal, exorcise demons and foretell the future. Amazing faith and repentance shown by this monk!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bw8HUH7M2qU

Missing Links - “Now you will discover the definitive truth about 9/11 and learn why even the most popular movies on the subject have failed to address the evidence exhaustively presented in this video. The facts will make it abundantly clear that the so-called 9/11 “Truth” movement has been infiltrated and is ultimately controlled by the same criminal group who masterminded the attacks. As they say, ‘if you want to control the dissent you lead the dissent.’ Utilizing evidence from the FBI, CIA, NSA, US Armed Forces Intelligence sectors, Foreign Intelligence organizations, local law enforcement agencies and independent investigators, Missing Links goes where no other 9/11 video has dared to.”

Some DVDs I bought recently:

I Spit on Your Grave (1978) - Rape and revenge. Interesting movie. Ending was a bit of a letdown.

I Spit on Your Grave (2010) - More rape and revenge. Better than the original.

Andersonville - Prison camp--Civil war style. This movie gets less interesting as each year passes.

Children of the Living Dead - Terrible horror movie, but one of my guilty pleasures.

No Retreat, No Surrender - Van Damme is in this one, but the rest of the movie is so completely awful that VD actually doesn't seem half bad in comparison.

The Ruins - Some of the stuff in this movie made me pull my now-almost-nonexistent hair out. I ended up liking it in spite of itself though.

It's a classic. I have it on a VHS with two others: Bloodsport and The Last Dragon.

I recently bought it on DVD. Amazon, etc. didn't have any (region 1) available, so I just googled to find a copy and bought one. I have to admit that it didn't live up to my nostalgic memories of it from my youth Wink Grin angel

Weird. I think maybe they censored it from Vimeo or something. I know YouTube doesn't like it either. How about this one?

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.

Just finished introducing the Star Wars saga to my sister in law over the past several weeks. Against my brother's wish we went in the order of release (4, 5, 6, 1, 2, 3). We substituted the Phantom Edits for the prequels, to avoid the awkward bits. And there was much rejoicing.

Having watched them all in a short span of time, it's interesting how filmmaking evolved in the last 35 years. Episode 2 is definitely the most technically polished / modern of the series (with its multitudes of slow zooms and pans, perfect lighting, etc). Episode 3 apparently attempted to bridge the gap, with rougher techniques, more retro optical effects, and the return of 70s scifi production design.

She didn't seem to particularly enjoy them but oh well. My brother and I did. Cheesy

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.

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.

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.  Smiley

Going to see Captain America at midnight. I'll let you know what I think.
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.  Wink 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.  Smiley

Yeah. Comparable to Thor definitely. I personally liked it a bit better due to better action (which is to be expected when your director is the Rocketeer guy rather than the Hamlet guy.)

It was fairly faithful, and I understand why they deviated when they did. The only thing I would have changed for the sake of faithfulness would have been Bucky's relationship with Steve. I understand why they didn't want to go with the kid-sidekick angle, but it would have been nice if they tried to capture the whole big-brother, little-brother dynamic. Still, overall, a worthy build-up to this.

I saw Unknown last night (I watch a lot of movies in the summer.) It would have been a rather mediocre thriller if it hadn't contained the force of awesomeness that is Liam Neeson.

Still waiting for Panzer 88 to come out.  It's going to be a horror movie about the crew of a King Tiger facing off vs a Demon.

Anyone going to see Rise of the Planet of the Apes (coming out Aug. 5th)? I didn't like the 2001 Planet of the Apes at all, but I get the impression that this one might be better...

Also...

I was looking forward to it until I saw the trailer.  I'll go see the movie but it's going to have to really rely on more than a bunch of CGI special effects.  That's what made the original Planet of the Apes movies so awesomely good - special effects using actors instead of CGI.  Those CGI apes just look too soulless and fake.

As for what I'm watching, I finally got to see Watchmen this weekend.  I still haven't made up my mind on that one though.

I saw an interesting (not necessarily good) Nazi-vs.-demon movie called The Keep recently. It's set in Romania.
