Saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 last night. Completely awesome. See/read what came before or you won’t get it. I think seeing it in “Digital Projection” at the Daly City Century 20 was good, the cinematic effects were just so…. real. 2 weeks after opening, the theater was full, and everyone in the audience was over 30. Curious.
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button – 3 hours of kinda bland character study with 1 neat twist. Meh.
Grandma’s Boy – juvenile, funny male humor. I liked it.
40 Year old Virgin – I was expecting juvenile, funny male humor. There was a bit of that, but it was much better than that. Very enjoyable :-).
UHF – Ouch. Weird Al has learned a LOT about entertaining people after this film
Anvil! The Story of Anvil – Holy crap, these guys love music. An honest documentary about the real life Spinal Tap.
Mega Shark Versus Giant Octopus – there are 60 seconds of awesome and 2 hours of them poking you in the eyes with a stick. Watch the awesome here.
Eddie Izzard: Definite Article – stand up show. He completely rocks. You should watch more stand-up. Seriously. Funny.
The Passion of Joan of Arc – I always thought I was missing out on something awesome by not seeing this 1928 “classic”. I watched most of it and completely couldn’t get through it. I totally don’t get why this is a classic.
City of Angels – Started pretty good, went way downhill. :-(
Demetri Martin. Person. – Funny stand up is always funny and puts me in a good mood. I like funny standup.
The Gates – the story of Christo and Jeanne-Claude installing The Gates in New York City. Good stuff. It’s amazing how much perseverance it took them to get this piece to happen. Pretty awesome. But then I like big awesome art.
Iron Man 2 – Wee!
High Fidelity – Certainly classic John Cusack.
Idiocracy – After all the hype some friends gave it, I though it was going to be as awesome as Zoolander (wow, that is an awesome movie… just earlier this week a friend said offhandedly “Oh, the files are in the computer!” and I laughed so hard). It isn’t. It has it’s moments, but only a few.
The Princess Bride – watched again at a house party with friends, brought my holocaust cloak :-). This is still a near perfect movie.
The Sopranos – I’m most of the way though the last season. What a powerful show.
