1. Nowhere to run.

30. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
31. GI Joe: rise of the cobra

Appreciated the special genius to cast Justin Timberlake as the guy who founded Napster.  Eisenberg did a fabulous job as Zuckerberg.  The rest of the cast was not quite up to their level, but it was still a great story that made the 2 hours seem like much less, even if a lot of the finer points are in question.

59. Megamind (in 3D!!!) - 6

Only went to see this in 3D because we had multiple coupons, which netted us down to about $7 per person.  We saw a family of 7 going to see this at full price this past Friday night... and the tix alone cost them $95.  95 dollars!!!!  Unbelievable.  Add in the unquestioned purchase of snacks and beverages, and we figured they had to be pushing $150 when all was said and done.  Why don't you just go buy a Wii and be done with it at that point.

Anyway, there's a bunch of competing and unconvincing subtext in this movie.  A lot of effort went into the specatcular animation, but the same cannot be said of the script.  David Cross turns in an amazingly lackluster voice performance as Megamind's minion.  The other voices work pretty well, but by the end I still can't figure out what the overarching moral is supposed to be, or even why anything happened the way it did.  None of the emotional connections are convincing between either the characters themselves, or the characters and the audience.  In the end, I was still fairly entertained by the comedy and action but this is not one I'll ever be revisiting, unlike the Pixar movies or even Kung Fu Panda.

90. Kick-Ass


While the movie didn't quite kick-ass, it was pretty good and I enjoyed myself. I felt there were a few too many awkward and uncomfortable moments during the first 2/3 of it, and I had a few 'make-some-freaking-effort' issues (example: Nic Cage's character shoots his daughter in the beginning of the film while she's wearing a bulletproof vest. They then take the bullet out and do it two more times. She's wearing her normal pink winter coat over the vest. So the bullet has to go through the pink coat, right? After the shot her coat is pristine, and in the next scene she's wearing it and it doesn't have two more holes in it either. I mean - COME ON! Make some effort Mr. Director and make her wear a destroyed coat. It's not that hard).

Or at least hire a decent script supervisor to keep track of all of that stuff for you, Mr. Director!!!!

91. Scott Pilgrim vs. The World


Scott Pilgrim: I purchased this DVD (shock, I know) and was giggling along as I watched it. But I started to suspect it was a little different. I thought maybe I bought the full-screen version since some of the on-screen text got cut off at the edge of a scene or two, but I checked the box and it didn't say widescreen or fullscreen. It was the only version. Then it got to one of my favorite jokes from the previous viewings, when Ramona changes her hair to blue and after an exchange Scott is still just standing there staring at it and says, "it's so bluuuuuuuee". AND THAT LINE IS MISSING!!!!!!!! WHAT THE HELL??!?? You can't go and do that to me! I am royally upset!! And then I got paranoid and wondered what else was changed from the theatrical to dvd versions. OMG! This can't be happening! Hah. Okay, it's not that big of a deal, but I was sad about it. Otherwise... still an awesome movie with awesome music and awesome characters and an awesome story.

And also an interesting alternate ending in the bonus material. I won't go into it, but I'll say that it did feel more "right" and fit the movie a little better... and despite that, I'm glad they went with the ending that they did. I like the movie better because of how it ended.

123 Babies
A dialogue-free but utterly captivating movie, documenting the first year of life of four babies from Mongolia, Namibia, San Francisco and Tokyo. You'll choose your favourite (ours was the kid with the oversized head from Mongolia) but all four never fail to entertain, the stark differences in lifestyles mesmerising.
124 Flame & Citron
The ginger Danish resistance vs the Nazis
125 The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes
Olde Worlde Disney Flick - one of MK's faves
126 Toy Story 3
I think if I was a kid I would have been scared to bits at one or two scenes in this so-called 'family friendly' movie?! And I didn't even make the joke about Mr & Mrs Potato Head being turned into chips. A little too stylized for my liking and drifted far away from the simple beauty of the first two offerings.
127 Blame it on Rio
A guilty pleasure from my past, but had to suffer a laughably 'censored' version where the nudity was covered by painted-in bikinis etc. *sigh*

92. The Quick and the Dead


I remember when Quick and the Dead came out in the mid-90s and I kinda wanted to see it. It got turrible reviews and I never saw it so everyone just moved on. 15 years later I finally get around to seeing it, and at the beginning I'm excited. It features Sharon Stone back when she was hot and looking mighty fiiiiiiiine, Russell Crowe when he was youthful and svelte, Leo DiCaprio when he was REALLY young and thin, and Gene Hackman looking like Gene Hackman. Plus it's a relatively modern western so I figured it should be shot well.

It started promisingly with a decent setup. But it never went anywhere. 1.5 hours into the thing and I realized WHY I'd never seen it and why the critics all panned it. It's just a lame movie. Stone's character is well conceived, but poorly followed through. Like, she starts mysteriously and badass, but needs to be developed during the story. Instead of becoming more impressive she becomes less and less intriguing. Crowe's character...maybe I missed it, but they never fully detailed all of his conflict with Hackman's character and why ... well, just about everything about him wasn't explained. Hackman did steal the film and he was a pretty good antagonist, although there were a few times when he was so over the top that I had a hard time with his believability. But man... that guy is a wonderful bad guy.

I will say that the Sharon Stone of Total Recall through The Quick and the Dead deserves a place on the Mount Rushmore of Hotness.

94. VALENTINE'S DAY - 11/14/10 - DVD from library - 1 out of 5

It was cute enough, but I'm glad I didn't spend any money on it. Did you hear they're making something of a follow-up? It's going to be called "New Year's day" and it may have more big names than its predecessor. My first reaction to that report was: "why?".

94. VALENTINE'S DAY - 11/14/10 - DVD from library - 1 out of 5

It was cute enough, but I'm glad I didn't spend any money on it. Did you hear they're making something of a follow-up? It's going to be called "New Year's day" and it may have more big names than its predecessor. My first reaction to that report was: "why?".
I liked the movie MUCH BETTER the first time I saw it and it was called LOVE ACTUALLY. No other re-makes or follow-ups were needed. :)

LOL, I know. I was glad I watched in on dvd so I could fast forward through parts that irritated me (which is probably why I thought it was "cute"). Pretty much all of Taylor Swift's scenes were skipped.
