Recent Movies ...

I've watched a bunch of movies as of late.

Blade 2

I am a huge fan of Blade, own it on DVD, watch it from time to time, etc. When I heard the second movie was coming out, I was psyched. I wanted to see it in theaters, but didn't get a chance to. When the DVD release date was announced, I made sure to put it right on the top of my Netflix list.

I watched this hoping for the best. It was ok, nowhere near as good as I had hoped. Some of the action sequences were awesome, but at points too fake. It seemed like they put some computer animation in the middle of some of the action sequences. I didn't like that. The storyline was pretty good. The minor part of the love story was kind of weak. In the end, ok, but nowhere near as good as the original.

The New Guy

I really like all the teen movies. I've seen most of them a few times, so I assumed that this was gonna be another one I would enjoy. I was dead wrong. This movie was horrible. The only redeeming part of this movie is the 5 minutes of Eliza Dushku trying on bathing suits. And that's not even all that great.

Dead Again

I got this movie because Scenes from a Memory by Dream Theater is loosely based on it. Because of this, I knew a decent part of what the story was going to be about. In the end, it was an excellent movie. I really enjoyed it. It had some good plot twists and the acting was rather good.

Mulholland Drive

I got this because I heard it was somewhat like Memento in that it was somewhat of a mindfuck. It definitely was. Very strange things happening throughout and very confusing. But in the end, a very cool movie. This may be one for the buy list.

Ocean's Eleven

I got this from Columbia House a while back because I forgot to send the card in, so I decided to finally watch it. It was pretty good. Nothing over the top, but in the end a very interesting movie. I think I need to go out and rent the original to see how it compares.

John Q

This movie was rather good. I am still iffy on the whole political statement it made, but I thought told a decent story. I think some of the suspense came out of it having some good thoughts that things would probably work out in th end. And Heather Wahlquist is damn hot.
