    Outrage - Entertaining yarn about the struggles in a Yakuza operation. I doubt there went 60 seconds without someone getting beaten, disfigured, shot, tortured. The sets, style, dress and violence carry the convoluted and nearly ridiculous story. The following trailer seems stupid especially with the music and slow mo that isn't ever present in the movie. It does give a taste of the directing style which is superb

    I saw the Avengers. It's amazing.

    Well written, well directed, well acted and good special effects.

    Whedon managed to mix superheroes from 4 different franchises into one movie and make it work.

    Tucker and Dale vs Evil. On Netflix, really funny movie. Basically an anti-horror movie, and serves to send the message that people shouldn't be judged by what they look like, how they talk, or where they live. Only an hour and a half long, so if you have the time you should definitely watch it.

    Yup. Saw this one a while back and laughed my jaws sore. Nice black comedy to watch if you're having a doozy of a day.

    Predators - 2.5 of 5 Stars

    It kind of sucked actually. The first Predator was much better. There was though, one part that was IMHO really epic.

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    The main character is examining the wound on one of his teammates, when the other one (who is, unbeknown to him, a crazy killer who just paralyzed his teammate) says "I thought you were a really asshole, but you came back. I guess you are a good person after all." As he comes behind the main character with a knife. The main character sees his paralyzed teammate hyper-ventilating though, and knows that the crazy guys is about to kill him. He spins around and sticks the knife into the crazy guy, and says "No, but I am fast."

    I don't know, maybe I am just a little immature, but I thought that was pretty awesome.

    I saw Insidious recently. I think good, fun horror movies are hard to find, but this one left me satisfied.

    Expendables: Director's Cut - 10/5 Stars
    Yeah, that good. Honestly, it is 50 times better than the non-directors cut. I am not sure I will be able to watch the theatrical release after seeing this.

    I would go to 3 out of 5 for Predators if were taking it that the original Predator is a 5 out of 5 movie.

    The newer movie is the best since the original even with all it's flaws and is certainly better than Predator 2 and AVP 1 an 2 combined.

    Finally managed to lay my hands on a copy of Hobo with a Shotgun.

    It is insanely bloody. I mean it makes Machete look like Sunday morning cartoons for kids. Certainly not everyone's cup of tea. My friend went out of the room when they started sawing the girl's neck.
    That said I found it OK. The it was fun watch the titular hobo with his shotgun, although I would've liked maybe a few more bad guys dying.
    Also I felt the end was a little sad, although in hindsight I guess it sat well with the overall grim theme of the movie. And the greatest heroes always die.

    Yeah it's very violent but also hilarious. Reminds me of classics like The 'Toxic Avenger' or 'Bad Taste', so rediculously violent that you can help but laugh. I loved the plague, can beat badguys who carry portable gallows. And the oneliners are awesome.

    I saw Dark Shadows last night. It had some ok moments but then there were times when I really wished the movie was over, I got depressed about half way through the movie when I realized that the climax hadn't come yet and I still had to watch it. The acting was intentionally bad for comedic effect but it wasn't funny, just hard to watch. The humor was awful, I didn't laugh once and hardly anyone in the audience did either. Johnny Depp was a little bit entertaining to watch and the setting was interesting but not enough to save the movie. 3/10.

    I also felt that it was more of the same. Burton and Depp should probably stop working with each other for quite a while.

    It's good but as you say it can't match Band of Brothers. To many uninteresting characters for starters.

And it's got some funny, outrageous moments too. The thermometer in the guy's neck. The bit where he kidnaps the daughter and the wife. Full of win.
    All in all excellent film. Must watch for fans of the genre.
    Danny Trejo has made a career out of playing the badguy/biker-with-the-heart-of-gold in countless b-list moves (think van damme type stuff), and sometimes play a minor role in larger films like Heat, and Devils Rejects. He's actually a pretty decent actor and can carry his lines just fine if you consider that he is like 6'4" and is 60 years old

    Moostruck, Raising Arizona and Leaving Las Vegas are Cage's finest work, and it is too bad he makes crap like National Treasure and Bad Lt these days.

    What was the movie where he thought he was becoming a vampire and ran around the park with fake teeth chasing pigeons? That was a doozy as well

    Tell me about it.
    What I hated the most about the series was how they introduced us to so many characters that by the end when they did the "what did they do afterwards" thing I had no idea who half of them were.

    If they stuck to Sledge then it would have been better.

    Girl with the Dragon Tattoe, it's good but slightly annoying. If you do an American remake what's wrong with letting it take place in the US with American characters instead of with actors mimmicking a scandinavian accent, it wouldn't hurt the story in any way. It distracts from what is really the superior version imho.

    Oh and,

    I was watching it with my friend from Seattle and he mentioned the same thing.
    Otherwise the movie was great. Did a great job chronicling Andrew's decent into insanity.
