Actually, both Return of the Living Dead and ROTLD Part II both start with a zombie in a military chemical waste drum. I tend to like the first one better, but both are good in a humorous way.

Brooklyn's Finest :1star: Brooklyn's Turdfest, more like it. What a sorry state of affairs, when Richard Gere is by far the best thing about a film! Also, Don Cheadle... just fuck off!

Black Death :4stars: Really quite entertaining. Not bad at all. Within the first twenty minutes there's two nods to Monty Python's Holy Grail (a taunting of the French, and a 'burn the witch!' mob scene), which is really quite nice.

Hoodwinked :2stars: This failed to capture my imagination or tickle my funnybone, even though I was desperate for it to amuse me.

The Exorcist :5stars: This is my pick for the scariest movie ever. After all these years, it still feels perfect to me. The only complaint I would have would be the poor effects but even those are forgivable given its age.

Lebanon :3stars: This is bleak and depressing. Movie like this make me so thankful i never had to serve in a war and makes me angry that people even feel the need to wage them in the first place.

Rocky 2 :3stars: This is good, even if it is only the 4th best movie in the franchise. Its funny how one more fight could make him go blind yet that issue conveniently never comes up again in the following 4 movies. The scenes where he's trying to film the commercials always make me uncomfortable.

Dog Soldiers (2002) - :2stars:. Meh. Based on Neil Marshall's follow-up, The Descent, I was expecting something a little more innovative. It was really nothing special.

The Hole in 3D (2009) - :2stars:. Meh. Story was meh. Use of 3D was meh. "Thrills" were meh. Meh, meh, meh.

9 (2009) - :2.5stars:. Great animation and an original, inventive story, but overall, pretty flat. I don't think I was ever really engaged by any of the characters.

Dog Soldiers might be a very British film. A lot of people didn't 'get it' (If there was anything to get) but I thought dog soldiers rocked, but I also loved the darkness of 9 so different strokes I guess

Dog Soldiers and The Descent are two of my favorite films. Doomsday was extremely disappointing.

Boondock Saints :4stars: This got some backlash for being a little too hip but its awfully fun. I enjoy the way the scenes are presented and it has an interesting story and characters.

The Business of Being Born :2stars: It was a little tough for me to differientate between the crazy feminists and the real science. Still, it gave me a lot to think about, what with a baby of my own on the way.

Real Genius :4stars: I loved this movie as a teenager and that hasn't changed over the years.

At first I thought you were referring to the opening montage in Rocky 3, where you see all the success Rocky has achieved on the covers of magazines and appearances on TV shows. Anytime I hear "Eye of the Tiger", there's a point in the song where I can practically hear Esseff jump in with "It's the Muppet Show!"

Take a look at 2+35 into the following clip:
Robin: "Gosh, Batman, is there anything you don't know?"
Batman: "Oh yes, Robin. Several things, in fact."

Resident Evil: Afterlife (3D) (2010) - :crapstars: . Fuck me, this was awful. I don't even want to go into specifics. I hated it so much that I don't want to spend any more time thinking about it. It's making me physically ill. Seriously. As I was typing this I threw up in my mouth a little.

The Town (2010) - :3stars:. While I never really bought the idea that Affleck's character would fall so hard for the bank teller this was still relatively entertaining. The action was good, the characters were engaging and the plot was believable, I guess. Maybe we can have some comments from real bank robbers telling me how full of shit all those scenes were.

Eat, Pray, Love (2010) - :0star:. Fucking awful. Julia Roberts plays an absolutely horrible, horrible character. This movie is less about someone "finding herself" and more about someone exhibiting a complete abdication of responsibility.

"Oooh! Look at the marvels of Italy, how the crumbling buildings hold such magical character! We don't have anything like this in New York!" Yeah, you do. It's called The Bronx.

"Oooh! Look at the secret spirituality I can gain by washing floors and meditating! I could never find this at home!" Uh, yeah, you can. The city is chock full of nut jobs selling God. Also, I'm sure just about any hospital or museum would be happy to have people volunteer to clean for free. It might not be as spiritual as they'll give you a buffing machine, but the principle is the same.

"Oooh! Bali is soooo esoteric and blah blah blah blah blah..." God, why can't she just catch some incurable tropical diseases and end this film?

Angel & the Bad Man :1.5stars: I thought this was going to be a cool old John Wayne western. Unfortunately, instead of whupping ass, he just falls in love with a Puritan.

Nine Hours to Rama :2stars: I knew nothing about the assassination of Ghandi before watching this film. Now I know a little bit.

Empire of the Sun :2stars: What is Speilberg's fascination with making movies about extremely annoying kids?

The Secret of Nihm :1star: I loved this as a kid. Further evidence that kids are dumb.

Back To The Future (1985) - :5stars: - Ok, so it may not be a new film or anything, but I finally got to see it in the cinema. When it came out originally I was only 3, so I have waited a long time for this. Was it worth the wait? Yes, it was awesome to watch it in the cinema, but it felt a bit odd not being able to curl up on the sofa with a beer (and maybe have a snooze half way through). But overall a great film.
If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits eighty-eight miles per hour... you're gonna see some serious shit.

Been watching just anything thats on lately

The Legend of Bagger Vance :3stars: My 4rd fave golf film, actually well shot, and well acted, just one of them nice films you should watch in the afternoon sometimes

Sphere :3stars: Kinda like this as well. I like those character sci fi things when they are well done, and Hoffman is the man.

The Day after tomorro :4stars: I don't care, I like it for all it's stupidity. I think Emmy Rossum is cute, Jake plays the star and Quaid is cool as usual. Even the wolves on the ship didn't annoy me as much this time around
