    Yeah the 1st one was set in 1936 IIRC.

    A lot of people are fans of the series mainly because they watched them as a kid and loved them.

    I quite linked the new Indiana Jones film, probably just because it's Indiana Jones, but thought that the underlying premise (revealed late in the film) was kinda gay.

    Ok so last night I watched a movie called "In The Name of the King" Given that it was touted as a dungeonseige movie I should have known it would be crap. But a cast including Burt Reynolds, Ray Liotta, Ron Pearlman, Jason Statham and the love interest chick from CSI NY had to be good right? Wrong. It was utter shite so bad that a movie-a-holic like me practically swore to never watch another Uwe Boll film again. The CSI chick had this crying scene in the middle that was so pathetic I nearly threw up, along with the death of the king scene. The movie seemed to go on forever and the movie music was dull and lifeless. The enemies were pathetic too.

    The ONLY redeeming feature was that the end credits included two Blind Guardian songs and a Hammerfall song. I pity the fools.

    Ahaha. I read about that on the Razzies site a few months back. Somehow, Boll seems to get the worst out of any actor he uses.

    Uwe is a cockhead. He's like Mundine, he can talk about how he'll fight anyone who disagrees with him, yet when he does, he structures fights with opponents that he'll win against. In case anyone didn't realise it, Mundine is VERY careful about who he fights (thanks to that cockjob agent of his) becuase he knows who will kick the shit out of him. That agent of Mundines must be magical or something with all the loyalty he gets from his clients, and if SBW turns to Islam, it'll be icing on the cake. It was interesting reading an article in the sunday telegraph last week about how SBW is whinging about his contract (which is actually pretty large for a guy his age and overratedness) compared to another fulltime player who was on something like 55000$ s year. Some pretty big disparities.

    Saw The Hulk last night, it was pretty fucking terrible. Still a fun movie though, depending on your sense of humour with regards to things that aren't intended to be funny.

    Very few comic book franchises-turned movies appeal to me. Anything that Miller wrote/puts his hands on is usually pretty good, as well as X-Men, which was always destained to be awesome purely becuase of characters like wolverine and becuase Patrick Stuart put his name to it; But everything else - hellboy, spiderman, fantastic 4 (with the exeption of Alba of course:D) appeals to me as sub-par at best.

    That's the thing though, for the most part they've been done by shitty studios that don't care about anything other than the cash pulling potential. The reason Iron Man was so good is that it was done by Marvels new independant studio, and with a setup for future films in the Avengers universe. The sucky thing is since Marvel sold a lot of their licences for the other films, they can't go back and re-make them ala Batman Begins because they're legally not the owners of the franchise, and it'd cost a fuckload to get the rights back.

    It still amazes me that spider man made so much money. Yeh ok, Kirsten Dunst is slammin', and has some great assets :D, but the movies were fucking shit. Toby Maguire? More like Toby Gayguire. Right?!? Right?!?! Whos with me!?!?!

    I'm with you. Spiderman was the crapest of the crap. Absolutely no redeeming features. (No, not even Kirsten)

    A buddy of mine works at a theater the next town over and he was telling me about how he gets the screen all these movies. Turns out he can bring a friend to screen movies with him and he invited me to screen The Dark Knight in about two weeks. :D
