    Good boys. Really fun movie. I was kinda hoping at the end they would jump forward in time and Seth Roegn, James Franco, and Craig Robinson would play the kids all grown up.

    I went and saw the 40th Anniversary screening of Star Trek: The Motion Picture today. It is still not a good movie. I swear that I dozed off at one point because I was so bored.

    Pretty much this. And pretty much what I expected.

    I watched the 1953 movie Scandal at Scourie last night. Sadly, I didn't really think much of it. It probably would've been more hard-hitting when it was first released given the nature of the plot. However, in this day and age it comes off pretty "quaint" or perhaps even more "antiquated" than anything else.

    That's too bad. From the description on Wikipedia, it sounds like a movie I would get a lot out of watching. It stars three of my favourite actors--the pair of Greer Garson and Walter Pidgeon, with Agnes Moorehead. It was filmed on location in Canada. And it appears to have, at least as a subtext, the Two Solitudes--Catholic French Quebec and Protestant English Ontario. I will have to put it on my list of movies to watch. I imagine just the scenes in Canada alone would make it worth my while. Pidgeon was Canadian, so it's always good to see him in his native country.

    Starship Troopers - with extra added Rifftrax, though this film is hilarious without the additional jokes.

    I don't want to watch the Boys, and it wouldn't influence how bland Brightburn is.

    It's amazing stuff from start to finish. It's a shame you don't think much of it.

    Well it is just my opinion. My mother liked it enough to buy the movie on DVD so my opinion is probably in the minority.

    Wikipedia says it was a bomb at the box office, so probably not many people liked it.

    Sometimes I'm just interested in seeing a movie for technical reasons. Canada did not have a very big film industry until fairly recently, and our screens have always been dominated by American productions.

    During the classic era of Hollywood movies, there was a policy where Canadian references and Canadian content were shoehorned into American movies, to allow Hollywood pictures to play in Canada without any trade restrictions. So that might explain why a movie like this got made or Hitchcock's I CONFESS, also made in 1953 and filmed in Quebec. I don't believe I CONFESS did very well at the box office either--but these movies might have been made at a loss for the sake of Hollywood having free access to the Canadian market.

    I kinda sleep through these kind of movies. This one was like a Pizza Magherita, you can eat it, but it does not give any satisfaction.

    The Kid who would be King.

    It's a fun, sweet movie. Harkens backs to a time when they made fantasy kid-centric movies. Maybe that was the problem, now that big fantasy movies are mainstream. Or maybe it was "too British". Hard to say why some movies that don't suck can't find an audience. But I had a good time watching.

    Ah, another one I watched this week.

    The Quick and the dead.

    A Western with much star power, Sharon Stone, Russel Crowe, Leonardo DiCaprio and Gene Hackman. Unfortunately it was very cheap and an eye roller. At least Sharon looked really hot in her earlier years.

    I saw Rambo: Last Blood tonight. If you watch it once, there'll be no need to ever see it again.

    Finally got around to watching Super Buddies and The Sad Time Caper. It was fun and I guess a mostly satisfying conclusion to the last movie and a OK-ish cap on an era movies. I still think it's funny that in a movie that full of scenes of posing, call-backs to previous movies and references to comics, and other nonsense that only exists to get the audience to cheer...some people called 10 seconds of The Power Girls standing next to each "pandering." You would have thought Naomi Wolf showed up and made a speech or something the way some folks on the interwebs were talking.
