    Trapped In Paradise. Jesus H Christ I hate Dana Carvey with a passion. Good movie otherwise.

    just watched the original True Grit film.. with John Wayne.. from 1969. I'm not someone who likes old films just because they're "classics", and I'm not automatically a fan of John Wayne either. I do appreciate a movie when it's done well, but nothing really seems to stand out with this movie. I can't say I ever would have watched it had I not seeing the remake a couple nights ago.

    I'll just say it: there is nothing in the 1969 film that is any better than the new 2010 movie.

    I will say that I'm slightly disappointed to see how closely the 2010 version mimics the 1969 version, right down to the lines, order of scenes, characters, etc. That said, the Coen Brothers appear to improved things just enough to make their movie that much better. And, as mentioned, everything I can think of was better with the newer film. So, even if the new movie is almost an exact copy of the old one, it's so well done that I just don't care. I'm still planning on buying the dvd/blu-ray when it's available.. and I don't think I'll ever bother spending money on the old version.

    finished watching It's a Wonderful Life tonight.. it's been several years since I've seen it. It's such a good movie, and it's hard to believe that it was released 23 years before the 1969 True Grit and was better in every way: acting, editing, story, etc.

    Just watched Doctor Who: A Christmas Carol. Imagine the "traditional" A Christmas Carol, but awesome.

    tonight's TG UK show was stupid. Maybe I'm losing some of my interest, but I think the show is just getting stupider.

    watched Harry and the Hendersons the other night.. first time since I was a kid. It's actually a pretty good movie, and it's kind of fun to see a movie that was filmed in Seattle and in the Cascades. The Harry suit is still amazing (Rick Baker of course) and I actually enjoyed watching it. Good times..

    just watched Skyline

    so, I knew it would suck, but I at least thought it would involve a few more scifi or fantasy elements. The only scifi part was that it involved aliens destroying things, and the last 5 minutes or so was actually interesting. I wish they'd sped up the first 1 hour & 15 minutes so that the last sequence could make up more of the movie.. then it might have been decent.

    Instead this was basically a cheap horror-type movie.. where there are maybe 5 or 6 main characters and you know which ones are going to die first as soon as they're introduced. It's full of pretty actors and the alien animations look pretty cool. But overall the movie was just boring and lame... absolutely no originality (other than the aliens) until the last 5 minutes or so.

    That's unfortunate about Skyline. I thought it had looked interesting from the previews.

    Watching Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan right now.

    I watched "Salt" today and it wasn't bad.
    Kept my attention the whole movie which most movies can't do anymore.
