I was 'dragged' to see this last night, and I was shocked and appalled at how much I enjoyed it.

For what looks like a bad summer movie cast-aside, there was far more plot then I could give a Bruckheimer film credit for. Nic Cage even looked like he was enjoying himself instead of just collecting a paycheck like with his past few films. Someone really put a good effort in this film.

I'd almost compare it to THE GOONIES, but for a slightly more mature audience.

How mature? My 9 year old wants to see it, and if it gets me out of seeing Polar Express, I'm all for it.

Oh man, Polar Express was pretty nice. Don't be such a Scrooge. The bell probably doesn't ring for you anymore, either.

I always found the Polar Express story to be a little disturbing as a child. I can't remember why, though. I think the new Tim Allen Christmas flick might be the one to check out.

I was thinking about going to see National Treasure until I saw Cage on Letterman. He was dressed in all leather with a white tank top. I didn't need to see that before I went to bed.

National Treasure was pretty good for an action flick, but the critics were right- some parts are just way too implausible, in terms of how he escapes situations.

I only meant more mature, in that there was more plot to keep up with. There wasn't any over blown violence or language or anything like that. In fact, I don't even recall any harsh language or blood in the whole film.

This was probably the best action film I've seen for a younger audience in a long time.

I saw National Treasure and it was surprisingly decent and entertaining. It didn't offend me and I had a good time.

Here's my official review, courtesy of Hybrid Magazine:

"I always found the Polar Express story to be a little disturbing as a child."

I find the trailers for it pretty disturbing. If I was a kid and I woke up with that freakish mannequin-lookin' thing telling me to get on a big weird train, I'd run for the hills.



Once upon a time in China, some believe, around the year one double-ought three, head priest of the White Lotus Clan, Pai Mei was walking down the road, contemplating whatever it is that a man of Pai Mei's infinite power contemplates - which is another way of saying "who knows" - when a Shaolin monk appeared, traveling in the opposite direction. As the monk and the priest crossed paths, Pai Mei, in a practically unfathomable display of generosity, gave the monk the slightest of nods. The nod was not returned. Now was it the intention of the Shaolin monk to insult Pai Mei or did he just fail to see the generous social gesture? The motives of the monk remain unknown. What is known, are the consequences. The next morning Pai Mei appeared at the Shaolin Temple and demanded of the Temple's head abbot that he offer Pai Mei his neck to repay the insult. The Abbot at first tried to console Pai Mei, only to find Pai Mei was inconsolable. So began the massacre of the Shaolin Temple and all 60 of the monks inside at the fists of the White Lotus. And so began the legend of Pai Mei's five point palm exploding heart technique.

It's more than a formula - this week, a massive 409 choices are (mostly) out on Tuesday. 376 DVDs and 33 Blu-rays, if we're dividing by format. We'll divide even FURTHER in the text ahead...
