Last night we watched The Forgotten. Nicely done supernatural thriller. For the most part, kept you guessing right up til the end. Definitely worth a rent. -j

No time lately to watch movies....but we always make time to watch the "Daily Show" right after the 6:30pm news. It put things in perspective.

EDIT: How could I forget...we watched Richard Jeni on HBO last sat night.
Anyone else? He is my Hero...especially about driving with your wife. All I had to do was LOOK at my wife and watch her shrink into her seat.

Watched The Iron Giant last night... again. This time watched it with the 'Behind the Armor' bonus feature where you hit enter when you see the Giant's nuts. It was quite enlightening.

Caught a few over the last week:

Collateral - I liked it a lot. Really enjoyed the interaction between Jamie Foxx and Tom Cruise.

The Village - I saw this in theater, so this was my second time. The more I think about this movie, the more I like it.

The Forgotten - I felt it was average. More along the lines of a TV movie. I watched the theatrical version. Has anyone here seen both the directors cut and theatrical version(s)?? I may check out the DC.

It's that supposed to be an animated film that kids can watch?

There are no stupid questions, but there are a LOT of inquisitive idiots. Me being one of them at times.

...Now when you say you saw the giant's nuts, do you mean nuts as in nuts-and bolts?

Speaking of animated films, just finished Miyazaki's Princess Mononoke (my wife just asked to watch it again for the 1st time after seeing it in the public theater over 5 yrs ago...!). YESSSS! Mononoke is simply wonderful!
My second favorite all-time anime film (the first being "Kaze no Tane no Nausicaa").
Watch either if you get the opportunity(if anime is your thing, that is)-j

We love Miyazaki as well. Even "Kiki's Delivery Service" which has all the appearance of being for very young girls, has something magical and touching about it.

Last night my 16 year old daughter had her weekly movie night. Things are getting out of hand - I counted 16 pairs of shoes, not including her, and there was some coming and going so it was hard to get an accurate count.

They watched "Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle", then "The Usual Suspects".

Last night I had my son Gabriel over for a movie night.

We watched Star Wars followed by Empire Strikes Back.

He is still going as I write this, he is now watching Return Of The Jedi.

His b-day is May 23 and all he's asking for is to go see the new Star Wars movie. At 8 years old, he's the biggest Star Wars fan I know!

And then there was the REAL bad news:

My one-month-old plasma already has terrible burn-in!!! It looks like I thought I turned it off the other day, but it was still on (with no signal coming in). The screen was black, so I thought it was off, and I went to work. Now when the screen goes black, I can clearly read "Comonent1" on the top right corner!!

Got that one at the local Media Play late last year - got luck and found it on sale (rarely under $25).

My younger daughter is nuts about these films.

We are starting to watch the whole 5 year series of Babylon 5. We just finished "Midnight at the Firing Line" and now we are watching "Soul Hunter". I have forgotten much of the little arcs that JMS wrote. This is fine with me. I made sure we never over watched this series knowing it would be on DVD at some point. I had taped the whole thing once, but that was mainly for others to view.

This is the best Sci-Fi show ever put on television in my humble opinion. The fact that they developed most of their CGI from a network of PC based computers is just plain cool. In fact it made the Star Trek franchise take notice and beef up their CGI.

Actually went out to a movie - saw "Sideways".

Very funny - great movie and highly recommended (not for kids, nudity and adult situations, but damn funny).

Watched The Great Escape last night with my 3 sons, this was one of my favorite movies growing up. Pretty funny when my 10 year old said "they copied this from Chicken Run" After straightening him out they really enjoyed the movie. They like war movies with lots of action and bloodshed but I think they really got this movie. After it was over my 10 year old said he thought it was really good but also kind of sad. I guess a great movie is always a great movie, no matter how old...

I had the WORST movie weekend ever:

The Village: I didn't care for this one @ all! The whole surprise ending is getting old, having said that, Why did I rent this one?

Anchorman: If there's anyone you ever hate coming over to watch a movie, pop this flick in the dvd player. It's guaranteed to make you DUMBER by watching it! The previews of this movie @ least looked funny, but it wasn't.

We are still watching more of "Babylon 5" 1st season. I am amazed how much I forgot of this season. Commander Sinclair doesn't seem as wooden to me this time around. This season really sets up the rest of the series quite well. I have noticed that wide-screen stretchiness in some of the CGI shots. But figuring this is a TV show and it is over 10 years old I am glad it is still in wide-screen. The surrounds are not that dynamic at this point. I am curious to hear the later seasons...To hear if they have better sound. But all in all...it is a decent transfer like I said it is over 10 years old and a TV show. How many other TV shows that old are in wide-screen of any kind? Or even attempted surround sound?

We had my wife's sister visiting on Sunday, and without time for a full movie, I put Winged Migration on for just a taste.

It's the sort of movie that a taste just makes you want more. They had to leave, but they took the disk with them. This one was even a replacement for the one that my wife's parents wanted to keep.

Meanwhile we've caught up on 24, and we're three episodes away from finishing season 2 of Alias. Season 4 will be waiting patiently on the TiVo.

And of course there was football ...
