Last movie I saw in the theater was Harry Potter and I hated it. The movie was 2 hours long, but the plot didnt start until about 90 minutes in. Then on top of that, if you went through the whole movie removing all unnecessary scenes and characters, you'd only be left with about 15-20 minutes of material.

All of this, of course, was brought to you today by my own worthless opinion. Thank you.

Ah - you couldn't be more wrong about Harry Potter.

That was a great KIDS flick. Maybe you wanted too much from it..? It wasn't supposed to be LOTR. I thought it was one of the better movies I have seen recently, but I have to admit that I have read all of the Harry Potter books and I am a bit of a fanboy for Harry Potter stuff.

I have to admit it did make an excellent movie for kids with all the flying around and magic and weird creatures and stuff. I forgot to add that in there. My buddy gave me RAVE reviews for it before I went to see, so that may have set my expectations too high.

See, I meant to do it two days ago, but then Wal*Mart had Harry Potter the Card Game cards (2 packs) for $2. I had to buy the entire remaining stock.

Then I had to open them.

I finally got a Professor Snape! I can sense your excitement.

I'm working until 11pm tonight. Assuming that I can actually finish what I'm supposed to be doing by 8 or 9, then I can probably do it tonight.

If not, then TOMORROW~!

The Royal Tenenbaums is easily the best movie I saw last year. I, too, liked it better than Rushmore and Bottle Rocket, which isn't to say I didn't love both of those, either. I don't agree on the Bill Murray thing, though, since you can never have too much Bill Murray in a movie. Hackman and Luke Wilson were brilliant.

I also saw Lord of the Rings. Never read the books, so I thought there were a few characters that, while doing cool things, had pretty much zero character (especially Cate Blanchet's character and the main elf - he had neat fight scenes, but was pretty much a blank slate). Sean Bean and Ian McKellen were really good. It's worth seeing in the theater because the visual effects are definitely its strength...but the three non-Frodo hobbits were kind of like having three Jar Jars in one movie at times.

Here's something that's horrible overrated -- A Beautful Mind.

Good, yes. Top Ten worthy, no.

It's from the "Rain Man" school of big star playing mental-unbalanced figure. Watch Russell Crowe shuffle and twitch and act all paranoid.

And "the unmentioned gimmick" was very annoying. It's amazing I heard people leaving the theatre that were surprised. Good god people, see more movies. I bet you were schocked by the end of Sixth Sense, too.

Jennifer Connelly was really good, as the suffering wife. She's come along way from just being a hot chick who routinely gets naked in pictures (I refer, before you ask, to most notably, the Hot Spot).

7/10.





ER is a hit. Frasier is a hit. As far as PTI is concerned - When the first number of your Nielsen rating is a point, youre not a hit. Norman Chad, on the Tony Kornheiser Show, describing Pardon the Interruptions popularity.

Hedwig and The Angry Inch -- if you like musicals with a rock bent, you might get a kick out of this one.
It's being called the next Rocky Horror by some...and I guess I can see the comparisons...but why can't it be the next, well, Hedwig and The Angry Inch?

Good movie regardless.

Orange County: A pleasant enough diversion I guess, but I hated every other character besides Colin Hanks. I didn't care if the family resolved their differences because they were all so hateful and stupid (not to mention one-dimensional). And you have to love a movie that uses one character (the professor that Colin Hanks' character worships) to attempt to make the other characters seem like real people (I am referring to the scene where the professor talks about the "Orange County" manuscript). This felt like SUCH a cheap tactic, and it didn't work.

Memento: BUY IT! Best movie of 2001 and deserves to win an Oscar as such (as well as Guy Pearce should get a nomination for Best Actor). I almost wish that the academy could have a different category for it and Lord of the Rings, as the story was more original and interesting in Memento, but Lord of the Rings is F'n Lord of the Rings.

I'll back up "Rock Star". It's a really campy movie that is a lot more fun than the trailers made it appear to be. It's fun in a "Bring it On" way if you can believe that. But make sure you watch the credits to see what happened to the original singer.

A talk show host in Denver, who had not read "Lord of the Rings", saw the movie and gave the following summary for those who also had not read the books..."It's about a midget with a wedding band that everybody wants."

I just watched Return of the Pink Panther on TV ... Peter Sellers was the funniest man in the world, hands down.

As great as the Clouseau movies, I think Sellers did some great stuff in a lot of British movies most people have probably never heard of before.

I love Peter Sellers.

I love Sax Rohmer.

I love Sid Caesar.

The Fiendish Plot of Dr Fu Manchu makes me weep.

Blockbuster may have too much of a hand in DVDs, and their prices are expensive as hell, but I just got a DVD burner and the allure of renting 10 free movies/games seems like a great deal.
