I saw Saw 7 yesterday (one day earlier than world premiere day Tongue )
And it sucks. I'm disappointed Sad
There's actually no riddle side at all - and that's what I like in the series. And there's a tonnes of meat and blood.
Don't know why they make 3D format - there's no need in it. The only moment, which looks better in 3D - Lionsgate caption. Though, if you saw all previous movies this one will complete the puzzle for you.
So, no eye-popping 3D is good?
Never intended to catch it at the cinema, but at least hoped to get some answers - hence, it's a yes for a DVD

 Last movie I watched at the theater was Life as we know it.
Iīll give it a 6.8 out of 10. I deduct 2 point for cheese factor (itīs a
chick flick).

 I think that for a chick flick its quite balanced. I think guys can actually
enjoy it if they  go on a movie date.

 I watched for Halloween marathon....

 The Corpse Bride: 8 out of 10. I deduct 2 points for
the soundtrack. I love it but man, lots of reusable riffs
and motives from The Nightmare Before Christmas.

 Cursed (a mordenization of the werewolf  theme):; 8 out of 10.
There are somethings that makes me want to smack Kevin Wiliamson
in the head for being so cliché and predictible.

 The Exorcist: A perfect 10 (Iīd give it 11 if I  could). It scares the
hell out of me even watching it with daylight.

 Psycho: A perfect 10 (darn I canīt give it a million) To some itīs
not the best movie made by the Maestro Alfred Hitchcock but to me
it certainly is.

 The Phantom of the Opera (1925 with Lon Chaney) I give it a 8 because
itīs too slow.

 Interview with a vampire: 8.8 I deduct points for Tom Cruise. I know
that Anne  Rice ended up praising  Cruise but to me itīs
too american and still cruise like to be  the
Lestat of the book. I love my vampire brat prince and  for me
Cruise didnīt fill the character.

I hated the Interview with the Vampire movie. The earliest books in the series are so detailed, expressive, and sensual, that it's impossible to make a movie which can live up to the imagery.

Saw Tron:Legacy today, in 3D.

*slight spoiler*
The film is like half 3D/half 2D it was bothersome at some points, but that was only because the movie theater didn't turn off all the lights.

the storyline was predictable (as is nearly all Disney movies) but it was interesting to watch, but in a good way.

the part I loved was the music. Daft Punk did the score, and even got themselves in the movie Smiley and there was a character I liked, who was one of those weird characters you like for bring weird Tongue

You don't have to know the storyline for the first Tron, they do quite the overview for it in this movie on its own.

would i recommend seeing it? if you are a nerd, then yes.

i for one could see it again to see if i can figure it out a little more.

I saw Black Swan over the weekend and watched a screener of it again last night. The movie is fucking brilliant. If any of you have ever heard of or seen the ballet Swan Lake, this version will probably blow your mind. And even if not, you'll still love the psychological drama. The movie is literally insane but beautifully filmed and choreographed.

from the previews i've seen, and knowing what that world is like (My mom was involved in that for years), it looks like it is a kick ass movie...

Most definitely! I hope it wins a lot of awards, because everyone who had a part in making it deserves one.

Something else I realized about it: not only has the original Tchaikovsky ballet score for "Swan Lake" been stuck in my head for days, but so has the soundtrack. The soundtrack was able to be modern and still blend in with the various Swan Lake movements in such a way that, although you can tell them apart, it's as though the composer was trying to write all of the parts in between the dances. I love it when a movie really comes together in all aspects like that.

I saw it too. The music was indeed awesome. I especially liked the flashback to 80s music near the beginning in the video arcade.
You definitely don't have to see the first movie in order to understand this one. I never did. But one thing is for sure, it is very visually trippy, especially when seen in 3-D.

I saw Narnia 2 days ago. Didn't see the 2nd though, The Caspian etc.
But I liked it, although the first is better, imo. These C.S.Lewis stories are great.
Last week I saw Megamind. I thought it would be more movimented, but the hero-anti-hero thing is nice.

I friend of mine did a 5min. movie about the last day of a crack addict. It won the best short film of the University, now he will take part in festivals, etc. Check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_MJWGEdU-Q

So, "Season of the Witch" was pretty frickin' awesome...you need to get past Nicholas Cage trying to inflect some idiotic accent occasionally, as well as some silly and forced dialogue that sounds like it was written from a cheesy fantasy popcorn novel... but other than those minor gripes, it was a great fantasy epic with an interesting twist at the end.

I just saw True Grit. Jeff Bridges is awesome. I love pretty much every movie I've ever seen him in. It's a great Western that has a pinch of humor in it.

Um, wow, I didn't even recognize him when I saw that movie. Tongue Heck, I hardly recognized Matt Damon, either. The girl was badass though. Cool
