1. DAHMER - 01/01/11 - I thought I wanted to watch this because I had heard that Jeremy Renner was fantastic in the film and it is the reason that Katherine Bigelow knew about him when she started work on THE HURT LOCKER. Renner is definitely effective in the role but I just couldn't watch it. It was too disturbing for me and I don't disturb too easily. What a craptastic way to kick off 2011.

1 Dinner for Schmucks
Script for morons. Steve Carell plays Steve Carell in yet another movie that Steve Carrell should have been let nowhere near. 15 minutes of my life wasted.

It got pretty hammered by the critics, so you aren't alone. Apparently it gets a little better at the end, and perhaps Zack Galfinaikas does some good stuff with his character, but regardless it still stunk... according to everything I read anyhow.

From what I've heard the dinner itself is awesome but is only a tiny part of the movie and the rest of it sucks.

2. 28 DAYS LATER - 01/10/11 - dvd from library - I finally got around to trying to watch this (you know I hate zombies) and it didn't feel necessary at this point. But, I can see right away what was pilfered from the film to make THE WALKING DEAD. So, that's good to know. Plus, (PERV ALERT) Cillian was nekkid. But, he's almost always nekkid. Oh, and I do LOVE Naomie Harris.
However, FAST ZOMBIES + ZOMBIE OVERLOAD = turned it off after 30 minutes.

1. Get Shorty

Didn't want to abandon it but our DVR decided otherwise. It's not like I haven't seen it half a dozen times anyway, but to be denied after investing 70 minutes in it sucks. It's got one of my all-time favorite soundtracks too.

I see what Dan meant about Hell Toupee abandoning us.  Odd.

Anyway, I have one for a change.

1. HALLOWEEN II (2009) - Uh, this was complete shit.  Who ever decided to let Rob Zombie helm a major studio picture, let alone two of these?  I never saw his take on the first one, but I made it through about 20 minutes of this... I think when I gave it up was when Dr. Johnny Fever showed up as some guy named "Uncle Meat"?  I mean, really?  Seriously?  Jesus Christ.  I did fast forward to the end, so I didn't completely give up, but the end was just as stupid as the rest of the movie would suggest.

The original is basically ONLY the dinner and it's a lot better.  I've seen both.

2. WITHNAIL AND I

I don't know what happened, but I fell dead asleep during this on Thursday morning, and then when I woke up, it looked like nothing much had happened with 22 minutes left in the movie.  And I had to go pick up a sick Alex from school anyway, so it was a good thing I took the day off.  I don't think I'll revisit this one, even after the exceedingly odd opening half hour.

After watching the first half hour I remembered why I told myself I'd never watch it again. Blech.

Dunno. Wasn't in the mood for this maybe? Just looked like a lame Rocky for the GenX brigade to me.
