    I read X-men as a kid, but as a fan I'm cool with the fact that just putting something on the silver screen means it will be different. I looooooved the first two X-men. X-men 3 was just a really frayed, poorly written, crappy movie. I think the story didn't make much sense in that film. Everything felt ad hoc and forced... not to mention that the "I'm the juggernaught, bitch" line was probably the worst thing a movie director has done to a movie's script in the last 50 years of film. The screenwriting in that movie was just really bad. The end of the movie, when they're just fighting an army of generic mutants that Magneto sends after them sort of demonstrated how the director didn't know what the hell to do with the main plot vehicle of the film: people with superpowers! You have people with superpowers fighting people with superpowers... except the legions of dudes dressed like homeless guys are superhumans who are less powerful than regular humans with guns... my head hurts just thinking about this.

    As for X-men origins, it was just a blockbuster. There was no attempt to make a decent film, they just wanted to milk Wolverine for all the money they could get. Which, in the end, turned out to not be nearly as much as they wanted because the movie was so bad. Good movies make money, too. There's so much laughable shit in that movie it cracks me up (the Blob fight belonged in a B movie).

    of all actors for a viking movie why choose pretty boy Leo decaprio? He's no viking nothing close. Mel gibson lost his mind long ago, and hollywood is no trustworthy source for movies anymore.

    Leo stopped being a pretty boy like 10 years ago. wake up, the guy is like 35 now. Come on, open your mind, rid of the prejudices or at least go watch Apocalypto or something.

    ive seen Apocalypto, it's ok. Dicaprio better start lifting weights and drinking lots of ale if he wants to look like a viking. Such an out of place actor for a viking hahaha.

    I saw World's Greatest Dad yesterday. Starring Robin Williams, this is a great movie I loved it. Even if I am a love Black Comedy fan, this one is indeed very good. Just when the plot starts to get a bit stale, the movie then gets to its best parts.

    Very recommended!

    Short notes to the two Thai horror flicks I've mentioned earlier:

    Bangkok Haunted:
    Three totally different stories combined by three women telling them to one another in a bangkok café.
    One is about a haunted drum, second is about a drug derived from the blood of the dead used to turn men on, third is a crimestory about a cop investigating a possible suicide.
    Nice film and atmosphere, but without any great scares. I liked it, but it wasn't spectacular.

    Art Of The Devil:
    A young girl is being abused by her older lover and extracts a gruesome revenge through dark arts, something resembling voodoo at times.
    This was a great film, with some really sick parts! Only problem was that it was (of course) in spoken in Thai, but the announced English subtitles weren't included on the DVD, so I didn't get a word they were saying... Could follow the plot pretty well from the images though.
    (there is at least one sequel to this film, and it is now on my wishlist)

    I recently watched the new (2009) Star Trek movie. I always assumed Star Trek was boring but it's so awesome! :oops:

    I really disliked the new Star Trek movie. It's dumb as hell and feels nothing like Star Trek.:/

    ^ I don't think it's brilliant nor a new classic, but it could've been much worse to be honest.

    Went to the cinema yesterday with my girl and saw Surrogates mit Bruce Willis. Don't bother, really. What's worse than a bad movie? A movie that has an amazing potential, starts great but then throws it all away due to a horrible, horrible script. That's what's worse. I should've watched the new animated Disney one.

    I saw Lolita by Kubrick just now, quite good. I thought it dragged on a bit too much, but in general the film is great. And Peter Sellers is in it, and as usual, brilliant.

    The new Iron Man 2 preview looks phenomenal. Mickey Rourke totally nailed the Russian accent, if I do say so myself. How can you go wrong with a movie, with Robert Downey Jr and Mickey Rourke as the stars anyway?

    ^ Just saw it (thanks for posting). It, indeed, looks phenomenal! I can't wait to see it!!!

    I saw Avatar today (in the new iMax theatre, only one in Central America hahaha :p). I admit I thought the movie was overrated, but after seeing the film… I can really see why there's so much hype. It's brilliant! The story, the graphics, the score and the message, they're all great! Watch it if you have the opportunity! :kickass:

    haven't seen Avatar yet, been looking forward to for months! :)

    I've just came across a youtube video with some footage from the BBC documentary called Alien Planet. I've seen it a few years ago, and it is truly amazing!! :eek: i strongly recommend it to everybody who likes sci-fi, it is really a must see if you haven't already! ;)
    you even can watch it on youtube chipped in 10 pieces :) Here's part one:

    ok, this one is for Andreas's fangirls! :devil: well ok, not really, but still a little bit anyway... :lol:;)

    today i watched the second part of tv mini series called Alice. It's kinda futuristic/modern version of Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, so expect quite a few unexpected original twists and fresh takes. Of course a UK tv series production cannot be compared with Hollywood production, but it's very well done! The story is quite exciting and well thought (except some minor flaws but oh well). And the imagery is quite what you would expect of a chaotic world like Wonderland, but then in a surrealistic modernistic way.

    Now the best part - the Hatter! :D He so reminds me of Andreas!! mind you, i'm not saying he looks very much like him, but you cannot deny the resemblance! Besides, the actor (Andrew Lee Potts) does an amazing job, so altogether i couldn't take my eyes off him, obviously :p And apart from that, it's just a great movie if you like surrealistic fairy tales :)

    Next movie I want to see is Jean Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren's "Universal Soldier: Regeneration."

    Just bought the The Godfather - The Coppola Restoration box today, and I'm really looking forward to seeing how good it will look in this edition, as well as I'm looking forward to the massive amount of extras that are included. Yum!
