Watched Source Code today - excellent movie that just happens to be sci-fi. I don't think it matches up to Blade Runner (as a friend tried to say), but still a good movie. Not sure I liked how they left the ending, however.

Speaking of Blade Runner, watch the director's cut without the Harrison Ford monolog - a LOT more bleak than the original.

They filmed several endings for Blade Runner. The one they used was the happiest and the least sensical, but the studio insisted. Blade Runner is remembered as a landmark film, and visually it was a leap ahead of anything else made to that point, but the script was not very good, and the treatment of the female characters was pretty awful.

Watched Murder by Death today. Great spoof, but a little politically incorrect.

Kewl - I can watch Thor before I get cut. Hope it's up to the hype.

So, who's going to watch the Last Harry this weekend? Saw the price for 3-D IMAX and had to laugh.

Trivia about "A Dirty Shame" by John Waters (a NC-17 rated movie)...

"...when he asked the MPAA what would need to be removed in order for the film to obtain an R rating, he was told 'after a while, we just stopped taking notes.'"

Hilarious movie.  I love JW's twisted views on society.

Unfortunately, a conclusion is usually the place where you got tired of thinking.

I finally watched Get Him to the Greek. For a crude teen humor movie, it has it's high points, rivaling Spinal Tap in some of the song lyrics. And ya gotta give credit for The Mars Volta mention...

Looks like it's monkey time this afternoon. But I really want to watch the Braves to see McCann come back and to see if Uggla can continue the hitting streak. Such a choice...

Made the right choice. Rise of the Planet of the Apes is a pretty good flick.

Don't call them monkeys. It makes them mad.

FG and I saw Rise too. The makers clearly know what the audience wants in a POTA movie better than Tim Burton did, since quite a few references to the original make it on screen. The science is silly, of course, but the movie is quite entertaining, CGI is good, and all of the human actors are shown up by Andy Serkis's facial expressions.

Saw The Help this weekend. I grew up in the south in the 60s, with a maid constantly there for us (my grandparents had two full time - and a separate bathroom for them.....) so the book really resonated with me. The movie was very true to the book and well done. Great cast too.
