Man that sounds like the best job in the whole world.
I haven't seen all those movies, but I think I'd probably agree with you on most except for Terminator Salvation. I liked it pretty good.

Star Trek was definitely a classic. The best of the summer.
Posted:  17 Aug 2009 08:46
yeah i was really excited for terminator, and i loved the opening action sequence.  i guess i'm mainly just tired of terminator movies that JUST set up MORE terminator movies, i'm ready for the definitive terminator flick.  also, a lot of the subplots, like the robot-human romance, i have seen before.  take battlestar galactica for instance, it had the EXACT same thing with a robot and a human, only i thought it was a better relationship in galactica.

Is District 9 a sci-fi movie?
Posted:  19 Aug 2009 20:13
Yes, it's about aliens.
Posted:  19 Aug 2009 20:45
Here's a short film by the director of District 9. Part of his showreel which Sold Peter Jackson on doing the film.

He's also did the Citreon Tranformer ad and a Halo live action film.

That's a good line. Funny. Besides I can tell by the title that it probably sucked.

I saw Star Trek. It was good, but I had problems with it. Being a fan of the original series and characters, there were a lot of things that weren't right. For one thing I didn't like the way Captain Kirk acted. He wasn't that way at all.
Posted:  27 Aug 2009 15:00
I get what your saying about Kirk, but at the same time I think it worked as a younger Kirk we've never seen before.
Posted:  30 Aug 2009 23:48
Yes, and there were some agreeable changes to the characters, all of which I felt were intentional changes to throw something new at audiences.  Ultimately, too, I think he's the same guy at heart, and lest we forget, this is a new timeline for the Trek universe, so it will be a little different.

I actually thought Final Destination looked cool. Is it at least worth renting SD?

I hate horror movies anyway. I like old monster movies though. The upcoming Wolf Man looks like it will be good. I hate blood and guts movies.

What if the new Wolf-Man has "blood and guts" in it?

No, 'The Final Destination' isn't even worth a rent.  It was neither scary nor entertaining; even worse than the third one.

Ninja Assassin
‘Ninja Assassin’ isn’t a Masterpiece, just an Awesome Action Film
Rating (out of 5): 4 STARS
