Just a quick thing, might want to change it to "watch" instead of "watched".
Anyhoo, my wife and I just saw the Rifftrax version of The Room. Well, "saw" doesn't quite describe it. It really was an experience. For anyone who likes bad movies, I cannot recommend this "film" highly enough.
Last movie I saw was Tenderness, a direct-to-DVD adaptation of the book that I had never heard of. The back of the box says that it was a psychological thriller but it was so damn slow that there really wasn't much tension. It had Russell Crowe in it, but not enough. I really don't know how he got in there.
I also saw Avatar for the third time (the first time was with a group of friends, the second time was at home with the DVD and my family, and the third time was just a hangout session with another group of friends). Still a fun, beautiful movie, but damn I wish I saw it in 3D. Everyone says it was great and now I feel like I've misssed out.
Gonna go watch Iron Man 2 this Friday for my Dad's birthday. Should be a good time!

I saw Avatar for the first time the other day...and I completely do not get why it was so huge. MAYBE small children could enjoy it, but it's so pedantic and hamfisted...I'd call it the worst movie ever made, but Battlefield Earth already came out 10 years ago.

I like the name Unobtanium, because I love dorky puns.
I don't think the movie is amazing, it just is fun however. Only thing is, play a lightgun shooter or a shmup and you get amazing sights and sounds but you also have troubles to go to. Right? So you end up enjoying more of it and returning more. So it isn't a struggle, therefore the rewards aren't there.

I think the last thing I watched was down at Dad's, and we saw Couple's Retreat. It wasn't a bad little movie at least, and I always get a kick out of hiding people's naughty bits with random foliage.
Is that the one with the big Guitar Hero segment? For some reason I thought that one part of the movie was ridiculously funny even though I knew it was really dumb.
Yup, where he flat-out neglects to tell the guy he sells Guitar Hero for a living. I was laughing a bit and honestly kind of wished they'd shown them screwing one another up more, but oh well, what can you do?
Caught a midnight showing of the recent Nightmare on Elm Street remake with my sister last Friday. It was average overall. It felt like an unnecessary rehash of the first movie, but at least Jackie Earle Haley played a mean Freddy. I thought the two leads were also likable in a way.
I would only recommend this movie if you are a huge Nightmare/Freddy fan or if you can tolerate slasher movies. There are far too many problems with it to recommend otherwise.

Just watched Golgo 13 - The Professional...
Holy cow! I am blown away! It didn't even seem like an anime, it was amazing. Like, it didn't seem like a Western cartoon either. It was just a movie. An awesome one. A beautiful one. I was... I am absolutely amazed by it. I honestly can't put it into words. After it ended, or rather as it ended, as Laura pulled the trigger on Golgo 13 and you get a sort of mystery ending, the music started to swell and I let out a bellow of excitement.
For a movie made in 1983, and dubbed... later? the voice acting is terribly awesome. Like, I was blown away at the characters. It must have been awkward for the ladies to do orgasms. Snake is a creepy motherfucker...
The CGI is sweet too! Wow! Pointless, but sweet! It blew me away, 1983 for it be made? Awesome (and I'm tired, what an awkward sentence...)
This is obviously an amazing film, and should be watched by all. I think I might put it above Blade Runner!
I've also got Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, Friend, Fist of the Northstar, and Twilight Samurai ready to watch.
Holy shnook. I'd love to see Kyouki's thoughts on this, it seems like a movie he'd quite like.
