Mal, I really like the alternate ending where she goes downstairs and starts screaming.  Micah jumps up and goes to help her.  You hear a fight ensue.  Micah screams and suddenly is silent.  Katie comes back upstairs, bloodied and holding a knife.  She sits for hours (a day?), unmoving.  A friend comes to the house.  When no one answers, she lets herself in and finds Micah (we only hear this).  Shortly thereafter, police show up, and as they find Katie, she awakens from her trance and gets up.  Unaware she's holding a knife and not knowing what's going on, she walks towards the cops and is promptly shot.  It sort of precludes the sequel, but I thought it was a much better ending.  DO YOU HEAR ME, SPIELBERG?!

Oh, and Dalty, I'm glad I'm not alone.  I hear a lot of people go on about how great Primeval is, but then again, a lot of people seem to like the Stargate shows.  Hannah is a hottie, though.

Okay, three episodes in, and I can tell Primeval is complete shite.  A giant crocodile-type thing starts showing up in a swimming pool, then an a river...they posit that the anomoly is fixed to its location in the past, but appears in random places in the present (but along some sort of temporal fault line).  Thus, they decide that it's a good idea to watch every body of water along the fault.  I'd be really concerned about the very likely possibility that the anomoly would appear in dry land somewhere along the temporal fault, causing massive flooding and devastation.  The continents aren't presently where they were tens of millions of years ago, nor is their geography the same.  What was once underwater is no longer.  Why can't the anomoly appear in solid rock or something?  The whole concept is just fucking stupid.

It is also basically the same show, week after week after week.  Anamoly shows up, monster of the week comes through it.  Team has to cover it up and defeat the monster of the week.  The end.

Seriously, save yourself the bother and remove that shit from your PVR now, before you pass that personal event horizon whereby you have to keep watching it, because you have already invested time in it.

After watching Waking Sleeping Beauty, I got an urge to do a Disney marathon this weekend, starting with Snow White and working my way through chronologically. Did pretty good too, made it all the way to Sleeping Beauty (that's 11 films). I don't own any of the anthology films (Melody Time, Fun and Fancy Free, or Make Mine Music) except for Ichabod and Mr. Toad, nor do I own either of the "Good Neighbor" films (Saludos Amigos and Three Caballeros), so those got skipped, but I did watch Walt and El Grupo, a documentary about Disney's trip to South America that resulted in said "Good Neighbor" films.

I watched three episodes of 'Supernatural'. It's fine so far; the older brother reminds me a little of a cross between Nathan Fillion and the character Jake from 'Melrose Place'. He might remind me of somebody else, too, but I haven't been able to put my finger on it.  Oh, and it does have a lot of classic rock; Quasar weren't lying 'bout that.

Supernatural is great.  It does start off like a "moster of the week" show, but it has a great 5-season arc.

You should watch The Boys: The Sherman Brothers' Story next. It's currently on Netflix instant. I tried unsuccessfully to convince my local arthouse to run it when it was in theatrical release. I think it pretty much only played in California.

I had some e-mail exchanges with Robert Sherman's son a few years ago. I was trying to get a scoop on the potential feature-length adaptation of Inkas the Ramferinkas for Corona. He couldn't really talk about it beyond saying they were trying to get it funded, so I didn't press it.

 Haha I actually watched that yesterday, very good, but very sad. Also watched The Aristocats, The Princess and the Frog, The Jungle Book, Hercules, and The Black Cauldron. TBC is really an anomaly in the Disney canon. It's more like a Don Bluth or Bass & Rankin film. It's also the first Disney animated film to get a PG rating.

They had a trailer for this on the DVD for Waking Sleeping Beauty. I thought it looked interesting, but it got lost in my instant queue and I forgot about it. I'll have to bump it up to the top of the list.

I am watching that new Tom Selleck show, 'Blue Bloods', from the Soprano's people.

Liking it so far. Anyone else watching it?

All I know is that they moved it from Friday to Wednesday, and moved my precious "The Defenders" over to the dreaded Friday. Adam must be secretly watching it.

 Of course! I LOVE that show! The part where Jim Belushi says something painfully unfunny just cracks me up every time. 

No. wait. Wrong Belushi show. 

Haven't actually seen it, but I did watch 10 minutes of According to Jim the other night, which was enough for me to try to force the Adam Curse on anything he does for the rest of his career. 

Which is why I LOVE the Defenders! LOVE IT!

Saw True Grit this weekend....  Amazing.  Really, I loved it.  Well, except the last 5 minutes, but I'm just going to pretend that didn't happen.  I don't agree that Matt Damon was comic relief.  There were some comic elements to his character, but he played it very straight.  Jeff Bridges, however, made me laugh out loud more than a few times.  Now I have to go back and watch the original.  I'm not a fan of the Duke, but if he actually won an award for True Grit, he must've earned it since he played an American hero about 50 times before that and didn't get a statue.  Anyways...  good stuff.

 

Watched Hellboy and Hellboy II as well.  Meh.  They were fun.  First was definitely better than the second, but having Nigel from Frasier playing the fish man was weird.  And what is up with the sumo wrestler hair?

I think a lot of people think the opposite. They think his True Grit Oscar was a consolation prize for all the other times it was felt he should have won or been nominated. I don't think it's one of his better performances. For one, he's not a very convincing drunk. He also chokes on a lot of the dialog, and tries unsuccessfully to get away with the kind of bravado he used to get away with as a younger actor.

I think he's better in a bunch of movies, but most notably in The Searchers, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, The Big Trail, Stagecoach, Rio Bravo, Red River, and The Quiet Man. The directors of those movies (John Ford, Howard Hawks, Raoul Walsh) are probably a big part of his better performances in them.

I have heard that The Quiet Man is probably his best film.  I'll have to find some time to watch that and OTG sometimes soon.

I wouldn't say it's his best film, but I might consider it his best performance.  For best film, I'd have trouble deciding between The Searchers and Rio Bravo.  A lot of what makes Rio Bravo great, though, is Dean Martin.

I have a real affection for The Spoilers.  That's mostly because he shares the screen with Randolph Scott and Marlene Dietrich.  I wouldn't consider it representative Wayne.  Fort Apache is pretty cool.  The Shootist has some great moments.
