It's no secret that I love schlock movies from the 50s, not to mention I have a soft spot for awesomely bad movies from different eras. So it's tough for me to pick an absolute favorite. Some more obvious ones would be Plan 9 from Outer Space (or most of Ed Wood's early work), THEM!, From Hell it Came, The Blob (1958), and Ray Harryhausen anything.

From the modern age, it's Street Fighter (1994), Adventures of Ford Fairlane, and Death to Smoochy.
dominochan: (huh?!)
For most of my life, I've been searching for a movie I saw in my youth. Since my dad's a huge film buff, I've seen a lot of movies that I shouldn't have seen as a child. Death Wish, Death Trap, most Mel Brooks films, action, violence, horror, etc. But none of them have left me scratching my head like this one.

Today, the mystery movie that's been plaguing me since I was like 7 has been apparently found. I posted my memories on the neo-geo.com forums and someone responded with a movie called "Strange Invaders". It fit the criteria and the timeframe, and as it turns out, it was more of a spoof of the 1950s sci-fi films that I adore. I'll have to sit down and watch it, even though a part of me is still a bit skurred by it.

Seriously, I can't even begin to describe how this feels. I'm happy, but also a bit surprised. So I wasn't imagining this movie for all these years...

Iron Man 2

Amazing. Simply amazing.

Cheadle as War Machine was great, and everyone's a huge douche. I loved it.

From the 20 "Better than it Sounds" meme, here's the lone unanswered summary:

5. Chauvinist Fonz-wannabe foils convoluted music industry conspiracy while drinking flaming milkshakes and insulting Al Bundy about his early disco career. Also features Tone Loc occasionally throwing people from rooftops and Freddy Krueger doing the worst British accent in all history. - The Adventures of Ford Fairlane

It's stupid, dated, and pretty offensive. And it's one of my favorite movies of all time. :x Plus, Wayne Newton's in it!

Enter the Dragon is a million times more orgasmic on the big screen.

That is all.

I saw The Hangover last night and wow.

-Hilarious? Check.
-Offensive and raunchy? Check.
-Self-depreciating Mike Tyson cameo? Check.
-Possibly the best Vegas-centric flick in years? YES.

See this movie. It's funny, funny and oh yeah, funny as hell.

Here's a cut as spoilers lurk within. )

Looks like May is gonna be a busy month for us, too. Star Trek and X-Men Origins: Wolverine are being released. Oh, and let's not forget DRAGONBALL.
dominochan: (I drink to that!)
I just finished watching the first two of the series. It's amazing how badly both films have aged over the past 22-25 years. But, their message remains the same. Be proud of being a total nerd. :D



Probably one of my first exposures to Queen.

The sequel is entertaining, but pretty damn awful when I re-watched it. I managed to catch some jokes I didn't when I was younger. Ft. Lauderdale looks a helluva lot different than it did in the movie, too.

Annnd I wanted to share the main theme, but I can't seem to find it.

Next time, I'm gonna subject myself to Revenge of the Nerds III: The Next Generation, and IV: Nerds in Love tomorrow.

Happy Chocolate Day to all!

This year, Nanaki and I held up our annual tradition: buying Godiva chocolates for no good reason. For some reason, my parents called and sent me a card. That's... random. They've never done that for me previous V-days, so why now?

Very odd, indeed...

Edit: Just watched the latest Psych episode. That was a million times more entertaining than the Friday the 13th remake I was dragged to Thursday night.

The Banana has purple hair! Pics coming soon.

I saw the final movie of the 2008 season: Quantum of Solace. I'm placing this one in the upper-middle rank of the Bond films. Lots of action, a touch of cheese, but confusing as hell. I dug the nod to Goldfinger. Definitely a fun movie, and I probably would've enjoyed it more if I had more than 2 hours of sleep.

It's the 31st Annual Day of Banana Birth. I gotta work, but at least I get time and a half for it.

Also, the Cheech and Chong show was AWESOOOOMMME. To top off the night, I gots me a Shiner Bock from Todd. All in all, a kickass evening.

Went to see W. Surprisingly, not a bad flick. Not worth $10, but at least a matinee.

EDIT: LOL bro got Bery Meron'd.

Continuing to the next movie of the 2008 season, I give you Hellboy II: The Golden Army. No spoilers this time around as I'm making this review quick.

The visuals are stunning. Guillermo del Toro pulled out all the creative stops and used a lot of influence from his previous movie Pan's Labyrinth. The action is constant, the story flows well, and plenty of laughs. I need to re-watch the first Hellboy (also directed by del Toro), but so far, I think Hellboy II is much better.

In TV watching, I've gotten into two new shows. One being House (I blame my co-workers on this one) and the other is Little Mosque on the Prairie (Canadian TV is awesome). Both are great ways to kill 30-60 minutes.
