 On the subject of TV finales, I almost picked up the last season of The Shield for only $13(!) at Target today. Can we all agree that was one of the all time great TV finales/final seasons in general? God, I miss that show.

Jakester fucking loved Newhart all the way up until Bob woke up next to Suzanne Pleshette.  Then he felt like he'd wasted the last eight years of his life.

That's probably the third or fourth time I've connected that scene to the Lost finale on the boards.

RE: The BSG finale - I could deal with the silly angel stuff.  That was fine.  What wasn't fine was then time jumping to the future, revealing that they landed on our earth 100-150k years in the past.  It just makes NO sense.  Moore completely misunderstood Mitochondrial Eve, and so much else.  It would've been better, if somewhat Planet of the Apes if, say, they returned to our Earth in the distant future, some time after it had recovered from the its last iteration of devastation...or if it was a different Earth altogether; anything but out past.

 

I never watched any of the Newharshows with any consistency.  But it was a sitcom.  As such, the ending is damn funny!

Star Trek: The next Generation; episode: the high ground

So first Geordi gets to be a hero by figuring out how to get rid of a bomb, which is nice cause I like Geordi. Then terrorists invade the bridge and Piccard decks one and goes to disarm him. Awesome, I loves me some piccard.

Of course Piccard then gets kidnapped because apparently none of the remaining bridge crew (worf aside, he got shot) felt it neccesary to assist the friggin' captain. If I was piccard i'd have em all tossed in the brig when I got back.

Once Upon a Time in Mexico. Wasn't expecting too much, but started out hilarious and violent, got a little convoluted later on, but still a good time. Hell, it's Robert Rodriguez, it has to be good!! Might need to check out the other 2 movies in the El Mariachi trilogy now.

Watched the Dark Knight at the bar on Friday.  I saw this in the theater and was impressed then, but watching it again- holy crap.  Not for a second can you see HL under the makeup.  He is that monster through and through, and I was transfixed.  I also love Michael Caine and Gary Oldman, so my appreciation of the movie didn't diminish over time.  I hated whatsherface as Rachel a little less, mostly because I knew she was going to die eventually.  Christian Bale was decent, but the "batman voice" just killed me.  A gruff lisp?  Really?  That's pretty hardcore.  I think it dragged on far too long, and I was a little disappointed we got Two-Face for all of 20 minutes, but overall I still really liked it and look forward to the next installment. 

Happy Feet Watched this with the kids this weekend.  Way, way worse than I remember.  Just awful.  And the fact that the movie opens with the penguins singing Prince's Kiss and Salt n Pepa's Let's Talk about Sex was just wrong.  What was more wrong than that, you ask?  Teenaged Mumble rolling around into several sex positions with his love interest when they leap up onto the ice. 

Tangled I liked it.  Mostly I liked the horse.  It was way too much singing for me and a little too sweet but it was cute.

Finally saw How To Train Your Dragon. Wish I hadn't missed this in 3D in theaters now. Really nice film. Visuals were great, story was sweet without getting too sappy, and the soundtrack was thrilling. All in all a good, solid film.

Watched The Fighter.  Christian Bale was really impressive in this movie.  Having read a little about the story before going, I wish they would have added about 15 minutes and shown a few more of his fights.  This guy was quite the scrapper and his fights are legendary.  Overall, a good movie.

Agree about "the fighter." While watching it I kind of felt Bale was going overboard, and then I saw the real guy and was amazed at how well he nailed it.

Amy Adams also impressed me...

I completely agree jraven.  Once you see the real Dicky, it makes Bale's performance that much more impressive.  Amy Adam's nipples were also impressive, although I had to look too hard to see them.

Re-watched one of my favorite comedies, Murder By Death, the pre-Clue Clue. Also watched Waking Sleeping Beauty, a great documentary about the Disney animation studios from the end of the 70s through the release of The Lion King.

 I watched what I think was the second episode of MTV's Skins last night. I also watched 20 or so minutes of the pilot of UK Skins for comparison. All told, I've now seen roughly an hour of Skins, which is an hour more than the Parent's Television Council has seen, and I'd like to take this time to thank those sanctimonious pricks for introducing me to a slightly intriguing show I otherwise never would've known was on or bothered to seek out.

Inception: still very cool the second time around, could appreciate the intricate plotting even more. And how did it not get nominated for an editing Oscar?

Hellboy: story a bit of hoo-hah, but I love Del Toro's style. Plus, kittens!

Waking Sleeping Beauty is awesome!  Anyone who is a fan of Disney animation should give it a watch. 

It was made by a couple of the animators who worked at Disney during that time, and so the documentary features some home movies and interviews that probably wouldn't have been available otherwise.  Plus it gives the film a unique perspective.  They had intimate knowledge of the events of that time, but they didn't make the movie into a "look at how awesome I was" show or anything.  In fact, the director of the doc is barely in it, just showing some footage of himself at the beginning to sort of say "I know what I'm talking about".  The DVD also has a few extra video segments that are also well worth watching.

Waking Sleeping Beauty is an interesting look into a time when Disney animation was in turmoil, and the efforts of many people to dig out of the hole and find success again.

I just  received The Town in the mail from Netflix. I'm looking forward to watching it this weekend.

The whole flap over Skins was giving us all a bit of a laugh over here.  And then the Andy Gray / Richard Keys / Sky Sports / Sexism row and subsequent overkill broke out, and reminded us that we can be reactionary retards with a sense of humour failure just as well as everyone else.

I liked The Town.  It was a bit predictable, but it was still good.

I was surprised at how much I liked Paranormal Activity 2.  It really contributed well to the mythology set up in the first movie and even if it was a cash-grab, certainly didn't feel like it.  I mean, sure, it has some believability issues in terms of why people are running around with a video camera all the time, but in general, it was quite well done.

More recently, I've watched the first two episodes of Primeval and am trying to convince myself that I should watch more.  I'm underwhelmed, to say the least.

Primeval is a poor man's Doctor Who.  It used to be watchable for Hannah Spearit spending a lot of time in her panties but they have toned that down now.  Therefore it is largely a waste of time.  There is a new girl in the cast that drives the computer desk thingy that is drop-dead gorgeous in a geek-chic kinda way.  That might help.

The original Paranormal Activity didn't do much for me. It kept me interested in the beginning because it set up a somewhat believable premise, since the things that were going on initially were uncanny but not outright unimaginable. As soon as the "demon" started moving objects, possessing people, and throwing stuff around in the last 20 or 30 minutes, I was done with this movie. It didn't help that it ended with a demon-face.

Paranormal Activity had the potential to be a decent movie, but it opted for cheap jump scares and other staples of contemporary horror films. I left the theater feeling kind of bored.

I believe the cameraman for those home movies is John Lasseter of Pixar. Pretty cool he was with the company all the way back then.
