I guess the third installment is a prequel, centering on the character Viktor, the Lycan rebellion for freedom, and the forbidden love affair between Viktor's daughter and a Lycan.

Yes it is, which is why Sheen's character, who died in the first film, is now in this one.

I just saw online that Kate Beckinsale is in the latest "Underworld" installment, in opening and closing scenes. Reportedly the film uses footage of Kate originally shot in 2003 for the first movie.

I will be curious to hear how you like this film. I really liked the first "Underworld"; I thought the sequel was okay, not as good, although Kate Beckinsale in latex is always worth a look.

The first Underworld is one of my favorite "guilty pleasure" movies, both in terms of eye-candy from Beckinsale and the overall film. The second one was OK as well, but I didn't like it nearly as much as the original.

I actually might watch it again tonight, now that I'm thinking about it.

Rented Step Brothers at the Red Box last night.

I like Will Ferrell
I like John C. Reilly.

I just could not like this movie. I tried. I laughed at some of the gags and thought all the actors did well with what they were given - it just wasnt much.

I thought this same thing the first time I watched it. I saw it in the theaters and it just didn't do it for me. Then I watched it again and I thought it was a little bit funnier. Well, my friends rented it the other night so I was kinda forced to watch it again, and I thought it was hilarious. For whatever reason, the third time I watched this movie it was 50 times funnier than the first time I watched it.

I watched Seven Pounds and Notorious this weekend.

Seven Pounds could have been good but really wasn't. Very confusing for much of it and just a tough story anyways that I feel wasn't done right.

Notorious was pretty good. Fairly entertaining. Probably could have been more of an Oscar movie if done right but still worth seeing if you think you might like it.

I saw "Defiance" yesterday. I liked it. It wasn't a great film, but it was well acted and was an interesting story. While I understand some liberties with the facts were taken, the movie does tell a true, little known, story of the resistance of Jewish Poles to German occupation in WWII. Daniel Craig is very good in the movie.

My son and I went and saw the new Underworld movie.... Rise of the Lycans. We both liked it. Worth seeing if you've seen the first two and liked them. I thought it was better then the second installment and filled in some of the "holes".

I'm just wondering if it's leaving an opening for a 4th?

The wife and I saw The Reader over the weekend. A very good movie that I would highly recommend. Good performances by Ralph Fiennes and Kate Winslett. Although I wouldn't say Winslett's performance is Oscar worthy. They did an amazing job of aging Winslett from the start of the movie until her final scene. Be advised that this is a very adult movie and the kiddies should be left at home. The first hour has a lot of nudity and sex. Also the Haulocost trial scenes could bother some.

I watched Australia and Slumdog this weekend.

Australia is a great visual movie, but man does it drag on. Very unfocused plot that could have EASILY had 40 minutes cut out and been just fine.

Slumdog. I didn't dislike it. But I didn't love it either. It's a good story that is told pretty well, but I'm not sure its the best movie I've seen this year.

Saw Rambo-First Blood the other night on TV. There's a surprising amount of political commentary and actual deep story-line besides all the shooting and butt-kicking. There's an actual emotional component at play.

Of course they went all "blowed em up" on the following installments but the first one was much "deeper" then I realized when I saw it back in the day.

So, I keep seeing previews for the new film "Taken" starring Liam Neeson...Here's what I've deduced about the plot:

1. Liam Neeson is an ex-special forces / black ops / oeprative
2. He has a daughter
3. Daughter is kidnapped by bad people
4. Bad people tell Liam Neeson he needs to do something to get her back.
5. Liam Neeson kills his way through everyone to get her back.

I swear I've seen this movie before --

I got to see a screening on "The Uninvited" last night. It comes out this weekend. I had no real expectations for it, but I was pleasently surprised. It was actually really good. It's more a thriller than a "scary" movie although it does have a few jumpy moments. But the story is good with a great twist at the end that really brings the whole thing together.

Agreed on the ending but overall I was so in love with the mood of the movie I didn't mind a rushed "monster in the house" 3rd act. Some of those planet/sun shots were just beautiful and matched with the Underworld soundtrack, I was seriously loving every minute of it. One of my top 10 movies for sure. Surprised it was so looked over when it was released.

Put me down as a Sunshine fan. I thought the flick was hypnotic.

Saw Eden Lake a couple of days ago. Holy crap, there were some scenes in that one which were downright unnerving - and I am one who rarely is affected by a movie. The ending was one of the most effectively brutal that I have seen in quite a while (since The Mist).

Pineapple Express.

It was more of an action movie with laughs than a comedy with action scenes. Started slow, then got *extremely* funny when Danny McBride got some screen time. I'd give it a 7 out of 10.

Watched Pride and Glory last night. You've seen it before, but this one had a little bit of a different twist. It was pretty good and worth watching if you like crime drama or if you think that Ed Norton is a really good actor. He was good and so were Colin Ferrell and Jon Voight.

Somewhat of a SPOILER###











The fight scene near the end between Ed Norton and Colin Ferrell is one of the most realistic looking fight scenes I've ever scene in a movie. I've been in a couple and witnessed a lot of fights in my day and this scene reminded me so much of real life. A lot of missed punches, punching while trying to block your face with your other arm, awkward grabbing, it had it all. Anyway, I just liked the realism.

Last movie I saw was a Korean horror film called The Host. Pretty entertaining, and shows that we're not the only country who makes movies questioning our political system. It's a lot more straight forward and easy to understand than most Asian horror films, so the casual American movie viewer should enjoy this one.

Watched Appaloosa last night. should be called Appa-loser. Really bad dialog. There was ONE line that felt true. All the shots were cliche - from the overhead jib cam when they were both in the dirt (Sundance Kid) and onward. Music was awful to boot. My wife hated it as well - towards the end we discussed ending the bore.

Give me "I'm your huckleberry" (Val Kilmer in Wyatt Earp) anytime. I suspect they thought this movie was big - like Yuma... they were wrong. They shot it like it was important. I wonder if the producers and Ed Harris are embarrassed now. Let's see what move ED gets now after this..

That's pretty normal, I think. The first time I saw it, the movie wasn't over my head--I understand the humor and everything--but I laughed only once or twice during the whole film. Since then, I've seen the movie about ten times, and I would rate it as one of the best movies ever made. I don't why it grew on me so much, though. Obviously, there are different types of humor, and The Big Lebowski is hilarious--but not in a lol-type way. It's all contextual. Maybe it just takes some time for any movie biases I have to get cleared out of my mind. Some of the best films ever made don't get the praise they deserve because they're simply not what people expected and taken for what they really are.

On AMC, I watched "Sahara", a 1943 WWII flick with Humphrey Bogart. He's a tank sergeant in North Africa taking on a German battalion. A well-told story action film with a great score.

What was surprising was its underlying moral comments of enemy soldier POW handling and its equal rights non-racist slant on an African soldier. Most stuff from that era is barely above blackface, but this was fairly modern thinking. Gets a Roy thumbs-up.

What was supposed to generate the humor? Walter was a funny character, but other than that I don't think any of the other characters were capable of laughs...

The movie is basically one long string of subtle humor, some of which many people don't catch on to the first time they see it. One thing is you have to actually hear every word, phrase and sentence uttered sometimes, otherwise the subtle humor will just fly right past you and you won't get it.

Some examples:

Maud puts in the Logjammin' tape while the Dude is mixing a caucasian ...

Sherry in 'Logjammin': [on video] You must be here to fix the cable.
Maude Lebowski: Lord. You can imagine where it goes from here.
The Dude: He fixes the cable?


The Dude and Brandt looking over Mr. Lebowski's achievements ...

The Dude: These are, uh...
Brandt: Oh, those are Mr Lebowski's children, so to speak.
The Dude: Different mothers, huh?
Brandt: No.
The Dude: Racially he's pretty cool?
Brandt: [laughs] They're not literally his children. They're the Little Lebowski Urban Achievers - inner city children of promise but without the necessary means for a - necessary means for a higher education. So Mr Lebowski is committed to sending all of them to college.


Walter's eulogy for Donny (before throwing Donny's ashes on The Dude) ...

Walter Sobchak: Donny was a good bowler, and a good man. He was one of us. He was a man who loved the outdoors... and bowling, and as a surfer he explored the beaches of Southern California, from La Jolla to Leo Carrillo and... up to... Pismo.

The movie is basically one long string of subtle humor, some of which many people don't catch on to the first time they see it. One thing is you have to actually hear every word, phrase and sentence uttered sometimes, otherwise the subtle humor will just fly right past you and you won't get it.

Some examples:

Maud puts in the Logjammin' tape while the Dude is mixing a caucasian ...

Sherry in 'Logjammin': [on video] You must be here to fix the cable.
Maude Lebowski: Lord. You can imagine where it goes from here.
The Dude: He fixes the cable?


The Dude and Brandt looking over Mr. Lebowski's achievements ...

The Dude: These are, uh...
Brandt: Oh, those are Mr Lebowski's children, so to speak.
The Dude: Different mothers, huh?
Brandt: No.
The Dude: Racially he's pretty cool?
Brandt: [laughs] They're not literally his children. They're the Little Lebowski Urban Achievers - inner city children of promise but without the necessary means for a - necessary means for a higher education. So Mr Lebowski is committed to sending all of them to college.


Walter's eulogy for Donny (before throwing Donny's ashes on The Dude) ...

Walter Sobchak: Donny was a good bowler, and a good man. He was one of us. He was a man who loved the outdoors... and bowling, and as a surfer he explored the beaches of Southern California, from La Jolla to Leo Carrillo and... up to... Pismo. He died, like so many young men of his generation, he died before his time. In your wisdom, Lord, you took him, as you took so many bright flowering young men at Khe Sanh, at Langdok, at Hill 364. These young men gave their lives. And so would Donny. Donny, who loved bowling.

I watched "Taken" and "He's Just Not That Into You" this weekend.

Whatever you are doing right now just stop, figure out when the next time "Taken" is playing and go see it. It's only about 80 minutes long and it is 80 minutes of pure awesomeness. I had my doubts about Liam Neeson in this type of role. I do not any more.

Not That Into You was ok. Had some pretty funny parts. Actually had a few thought provoking moments. The overly girly scenes were fairly limited. It was a little bit too long for this type of movie. If you are a guy being forced to see a movie that isn't "Taken" this one won't kill you.

I enjoyed this movie immensely. I haven't seen this in years yet the scene where the hitman kills Tiffany & the scene on the boat I have never forgotten. The hitman was a very cool villian. Lots of good gritty action scenes & one stunt even Jackie Chan would have a hard time trying to best.

The cast was a who's who of 1970s character actors.

Apparently this was Burt's project from the start. He wanted to make a Dirty Harry in Georgia movie. He also directed.

Typical of many Quentin Tarantino Movies.A little bit of Pulp Fiction mixed with a little Dusk Till Dawn but not nearly as good.Wasn't really terrible either.

But, Eastwood made one big goof in the film. There was one scene where his son (who reminds me of my uncle) asks his dad if he still knows a guy with Detriot Lions season tickets. Doesn't Clint know that they are practically giving them away? Tough to defend that one...

I loved the music and Pierce Bronson singing was so bad that it made it hilarious for me. :D The second one I saw was Star Trek: Nemesis which is the last Star Trek movie that had the Next Generation cast in it (Patrick Stewart, Jonathan Frakes, etc). I thought it was fantastic. I'm a totally TNG nerd though so I usually like anything with that cast in it but I thought the overall movie was awesome and I'm hoping to buy it sometime soon. :)

I liked Planet Terror infinitely more than Death Proof. I didn't think the purposefully long, non-action sequences in the bar were entertaining. Seemed like it could have been a 30 minute short with just the action sequences and worked really great as a quicker homage to old bad grindhouse movies.


I watch both on Friday. Planet Terror was an excellent tribute to the grindhouse movies.

Death Proof was boring. Very, very boring.

I watched Planet Terror last night. A little bloody for me, but I did like it.

I didn't know Rico from 6 Feet Under was in it. I He was one of my favorites on that show.

Watched "A Walk To Remember" on ABC Family with my teen daughter last night, a 2002 movie with Shane West, Mandy Moore, and Peter Coyote.

A really nice movie, purely sentimental and emotional about teen love, but done well. I expected a typical semi-trashy teen movie, but was surprised.

True story, we got the name for my son from the lead character of that movine, Landon. Our teenage niece was visiting us a few weeks before he was born and we were torn between two names. She brought that movie and we all watched it. Towards the end of the movie I looked at my wife and asked what she thought of that name. It wasalmost immediate that we knew that was going to be our son's name. We love the neame.

Now I bawl like a baby every time that one is on TV. It is a bit cheesy, but it it's one of those movies that make you want to be better.

My brother-in-law gave me a 6 month subscription to Netflix for Christmas (plus a jar of popcorn and a microwave popper!), so my wife and I have been watching movies endlessly. We found out we can watch some online, so while one's in the mail, we can watch another. During the ice period, that came in handy!

One of the first flicks was the movie The Visitor. The story was a bit contrived, but we got to see Richard Jenkins' Oscar nominated performance before that was on the radar.

We've been checking out some old ones. Liked Paul Newman's Oscar nominated performance, but the end was somewhat unsatisfying, but that happens. Sort of like life.

We just sent back Wall-E and that was very good. It is so astounding what they can do with animation now.

Some others that we rented that have been enjoyable: Chaplin, again another Oscar nominated performance, this time from Robert Downey Jr. (who is one of my favorite actors). The nomination was very deserved. Very strange to see Geraldine Chaplin playing her grandmother and I wonder if that had ever happened before. We also got Iron Man. It was fun, not spetacular.

A couple of chick flicks we saw were "so so". "Then She Found Me" with Helen Hunt and Bette Midler had some moments, but otherwise was weak. Then we just rented "PS I Love You" and I'd same the same there. Good casts though on both films.

We watched January Man with Kevin Klein and we've always enjoyed that movie. Next we have coming another Klein film "I Love You to Death". Klein is also one of my favorite actors, so we'll enjoy that one again. William Hurt plays a totally spaced out character with lots of fun.

I've watched a few TV shows online, mostly when home at lunch. I tried watching an episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents on the treadmill, but I couldn't get the volume on my laptop up high enough. I may have to invest in some cheap speakers to boost that, I think.

I also watched two episodes of a 1960 show called "Home Run Derby" filmed at old Wrigley Field in LA where two ML players faced off each week for "nine innings" of Home Run hitting. Much the same rules as the All Star variety, but if they take a pitch and the ump called it a strike, that's an out. For 1960, the money wasn't bad. Two Grand for the winner, $1000 for the loser and another grand to the pitcher who gave up the most home runs. There were bonuses for hitting three or more home runs in a row. The one episode I watched with Mickey Mantle, he was up to $6000 for several weeks. Not a bad pay day for a ballplayer back then (I think Mantle made $75G's in 1957). Very slow paced show and not much insight, but I was starving for some baseball.

I love the old Home Run Derby show. The Classic Sports channel used to show episodes of it before ESPN bought the channel and decided that we were all starving for reruns of "classics" such as the 2006 World Series of Poker.

I loved The Visitor--one of my favorites. I think I talked about it earlier in this thread, actually. Wall-E is one of the best movies ever made, and Chaplin had a huge impact on me when I was younger--I'm actually going to watch it for the first time in years next week. Iron Man was a typical, Hollywood action movie except that it was actually good. I definitely wasn't digging the chick flicks, though. If someone even calls it a chick flick, I'll probably hate it. You were with the wife, though, so I'm sure you had your obligations to fill. ;)

We watched Double Indemnity last night on Netflix, a 1944 thriller featuring Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck. MacMurray plays an insurance salesman who plots with Barbara Stanwyck to murder her husband and collect the insurance, making it look like an accident. Well told story and ironically Edward G. Robinson brings some comic relief in a well acted role as the insurance investigator in MacMurray's office.

Many don't realize that Fred MacMurray played tough guys in the 1940's well before he appeared in the Disney movies such as Flubber and The Shaggy Dog and on the TV series My Three Sons. I kind of wished that My Three Sons and Saturday Night Live had coincided because it would have been a riot to have spoofed the show with MacMurray and William Demersest (Uncle Charlies) being the suburban guys on the show, but in reality they're ex-mobsters.

But I'd recommend Double Indemnity even though there were a couple of "tough guy talking to the dame" type lines that we just cracked up on.

Just watched Bogart (with Van Johnson and Fred Mac Murray) in The Caine Mutiny. Some fine performances there. I sometimes like to do a "whatever happened to?" on actors I see in older movies. There was a young actor (Robert Francis) who played Ensign Keith in this movie. He died the following year when a small plane he was piloting crashed near LA.

I thought his girlfriend in the movie was gorgeous (May Wyn). Her original name was Donna Lee Hickey. Stanley Kramer, producer of The Caine Mutiny, decides that her own name has to go. There hasn't been a May on the screen since the days of May McEvoy and Mae Murray, so he changes her name to May Wynn, from the nightclub singer she plays in his film. But The Caine Mutiny was the only film of note that she appeared in. She had a few supporting roles in other films in the mid-50s, and then disappeared. Hard to find out anything current on her though except that she is still living (somewhere).

OK. I have Directv and thoroughly enjoy it when compared to what I had with Charter Communications. I'm getting ready to dump the premium movie channel package though (HBO, Starz, and all the others) because I never watch any of them, and I can save myself a nice bundle of money monthly. Gonna miss Starz Western Channel though. But overall it was a waste.

Has anyone gotten the new On-Demand service that Directv is now offering via the internet? I just found out about it, and have been reading up on it. You have to have broadband access to get it, and can home network it either wired or wireless.

Here are the basics on it... http://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/global/contentPageNR.jsp?assetId=P4750018

You have to have the DIRECTV PlusŪ HD DVR to begin with, which we do not have. My wife and I just aren't the TV addicts like some of you appear to be. We watch very little TV during the week, and really don't have these "favorite" shows we have to watch or tape. We pretty much plop down in front of the TV on the weekends, and whatever is on, then that is what we watch.

So when we had it installed we just got the HD Receiver. I just couldn't justify spending $200 on their DVR, and then leasing it for $6/month. I do have a HD Toshiba DVR that I bought on sale several months ago, and I wish there was some way I could use that to get their On-Demand.

So I sent them an email inquiring about more details and my current set-up, and asked them if I could trade-in my Directv HD receiver (get a credit) towards upgrading to the HD DVR. These butt heads send me back a form letter that basically tells me what I already know and found on their website. They said I can hang on to the HD receiver and use it on another TV. Only one problem.... I only have the one HD TV, and already have receivers on the other TVs. So it's really no use to me.

And then they say there could be an installation charge once I get the equipment of anywhere up to $100. Give me a break! Don't they realize the economy ain't doing too good right now, and people (like myself) are trying to save money where we can? Give me the installation instructions and I probably could do it myself.

Anyway... that On-Demand service looks pretty enticing though. A lot to choose from. I'm gonna call one of their customer service people, turn into George Costanza, and see if I can't swing a deal somehow.

I worked Directv last night on the phone. As a current Directv customer I told them I didn't understand why they wouldn't work with me to try and keep me as a customer when a competing cable company was offering me their HD DVR w/ On Demand programming for free?

We've taken a slight hiatus from feature films. From Netflix, we started the HBO mini-series John Adams. We're through the first DVD and the three actors who won a Grammy for their performances (Giamatti, Wilkerson and Linney) have given good performances, although I have to say, we had to put the subtitles on to understand some of the dialogue (that may be a problem with our sound on our TV or maybe I'm going deaf). We now have Disk 2 to watch.

A little bit of research and common sense is all it takes - but people do not want to do the first and lack the second.

I love Charlie Kaufman and heard this was a love it or hate it movie. It was neither to me, just so-so...it held my interest simply in that I was trying to keep up with the plot...but it was not as good as John Malkovich/Adaptation/Eternal Sunshine. It will make you think though.

My wife and I watched Pineapple Express after hearing boat loads of hype....yeah...didn't enjoy that one so much.

We are both huge Seth Rogan fans, but that movie was just pretty much unfunny. It had some moments, but I was glad it was over.

I meant to mention this earlier, but was in a hurry. The writers for Sports Night had a thing for Cincinnati. They were always having the characters talk about the Reds. In one episode (2000), the Reds and the O's were on anchors outside the box predictions for the WS that year.

Sports Night is one of my all-time favorite shows. IMO, Aaron Sorkin's other projects have been grandiose and overblown, but got that one so very right.

Best line ever in a series finale = "Sports Night is a good show. Anyone who can't make money off of Sports Night shouldn't be in the money-making business."

If anyone is zombie film fans, Automation Transfusion is HORRIBLE!!!! It was at Wal-Mart and it actually got good reviews, but it really in all honesty sucks. I want my $13 back!!

I agree that Pineapple Express was pretty ho-hum. Besides James Franco's character and some pretty good action sequences it wasn't much.

My wife and I watched How to Lose Friends and Alienate People tonight. I thought it was really, really funny. Simon Pegg may be my favorite comedic actor right now.

My 13 yr old is a huge zombie fan. Has a pretty extensive collection of movies, beginning with Night of the Living Dead.

I just watched The Boy In The Striped Pajamas. I highly recommend this one. It's about an 8 yr old German boy whose Dad gets promoted to the position of commandant at a interment camp for Jews, and as seen through his eyes. Good movie with a shocking, disturbing ending. ;)

I went to Observe and Report due to a friend talking me into it. He said it would be good. He was wrong. He didn't like it either.
