Never get tired of this movie, I just love the entire Firefly story, I love the characters, and I love the acting. The show had real potential but the way the movie went it'd be hard to bring it back as a show. Regardless I always get pleasure from revisiting the series and getting to see some more of Jewel Staite... mmm Jewel Staite

Started this on Thursday but fell asleep before I could finish it. It's kind of a silly movie, I mean the dialogue can be a little hard to swallow was well as the lack of blood during certain scenes, but some suspension of disbelief has to be had during comic book movies. The movie did plenty of things right such as hiring Ron Pearlman as their lead actor and the use to actors rather than just full CGI. Still haven't seen the 2nd one yet, but one of these days I'll get around to it. If I believed in giving numerical scores for things I"d probably give this a 3.5 out of 5, not great but certainly better than most.



I enjoyed Sam Dunn's first documentary on metal, "Metal: A Headbanger's Journey" so it's pretty hard not to like this one as it's more of the same, just in different countries. I would have preferred to see more of Sam on camera as well as more dialogue from him, but I certainly did learn about some interesting sounding metal bands, one of whom I can't believe I've been living without. Overall an informative and well done documentary that does expose people to more than just the North American, British, and European metal bands, however I would have liked to have seen some more bands for each country, but you do have time constraints and all that ****e so I won't hold it against Sam too much. Again I'd probably give this a 4 out of 5, worth a look, however if you're not a metal head than I would just recommend renting it.



Ahh an old (10 years now) cult favourite from Beavis & Butthead creator Mike Judge. Some incredible social satire here on office work, however there's also hints of satire to the manual labor work side of the story. Well written and rounded characters while still coupled with notable stereotypes make this a fun movie to watch if you've ever worked in an office environment. My only problem was with the DVD itself that it was scratched to **** so I ended up jumping around a few scenes and missed out on a few things, but I can't hold Mike Judge accountable for that. I honestly haven't enjoyed myself this much with a comedy in awhile, anybody who hasn't seen it really needs to do themselves a favour and see it already because you're not going to regret it.

^I love Office Space, i've watched it more than 10 times, but never knew it was from Beavis & Butthead's creator. I thought it was an unheard of movie. That really made my day.

You thought Office Space was an unheard of movie? Have you ever walked into a Hot Topic, or a KOHL's, or turned on Comedy Central?

I think the last movie I saw was O Lucky Man! and it was brilliant. The soundtrack by Alan Price is priceless (see what I did there? pretty clever huh?).

I just saw Crank .. an incredibly stupid movie with Jason Statham performing violence, sex in public and other kinds of general nastiness. It was fast paced action with with a touch of comedy right from the start.

Chelios (Statham) is a hitman who's gotten himself poisoned by some concoction that blocks adrenaline receptors. The result? He'll die .. unless he keeps the adrenaline pumping. While he's trying to get revenge on his would-be killer, he has to make sure his adrenaline stays high, for example by random acts of violence, public sex, drinking excessive amounts of red bull or even forcing a doctor at gunpoint to give him a hit with the defibrillators ..

Actually, it was pretty darn enjoyable! Watch it if you can enjoy a simple action flick that simply aims to entertain.

I think that's generally the rule for all Jason Statham movies (except for his ones with Guy Ritchie of course). He likes his daft absent minded action movies probably because they keep him in shape and he likes to have a good time, I can't really blame the guy though I mean if I know those types of movies would keep me in shape and guarantee me a steady pay check I'd continue to do them.

Anyways I just finished up this little gem:


One of my favourite British movies however it is VERY British. The dialogue is very unforgiving if you're unfamiliar with the slang and accents, even after 8 months over there I struggled my first time watching it. I loved the acting and the guerilla style filming (with one helicopter overhead scene that probably cost half the budget). This movie really shows you how great an actor Paddy Considine is and it makes you wonder why he hasn't penetrated the North American market yet. The best thing the movie does is it gives you a great inside view to what life in a small British village is like, because the "gangs" come off as extremely laughable compared to their urban counterparts, but that's what it's like in some places. If you like British gangster movies and revenge plots then this is a movie you should really check out.

I also forgot to mention the actor who plays Anthony (Toby Kebbel) does an extrodoary job playing a mentally challenged person.



I finally was able to get my hands on a copy of [REC] and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with it. I have yet to see it's American counter part Quarantine, however from what I've read about it it's inferior in ever way to [REC]. I thought it was a little slow at first, I mean the occupant infected didn't really seem all that threatening, however that's just due to their short exposure to the virus. The last fifteen minutes are where the movie really shines, now I don't normally hold a pillow while watching a horror movie (in fact I had never done so since tonight) but when Angela and Pablo get up to the penthouse apartment I had ever light in my room and I was holding my pillow like my life depended on it. I am extremely excited that they're filming a sequel to this and will be one of the few movies I go see in theaters. In a nutshell if you like foreign horror movies, a shaky camera, and beautiful Spanish women then you'll enjoy this movie.

I finally got a chance to see District 9 and it was a bit more demented than I thought it was going to be. Everytime I laughed at one of those parts the guy sitting behind me would make a comment about how the movie is inappropriate for him.

I like the two themes of greed and segregation that were explored in the movie. The camera-work was excellent except for two shots where the camera sat on top of the gun facing the guy holding the gun. I thought they were highly unnecessary.

I think it's odd that people who like this film acknowledge it's incredibly stupid, yet most didn't enjoy the squeal because it's too stupid. I don't get it...what made it cross the imaginary line of retardation which separates the fun stupid from bad stupid?
