Since is the movie reviews thread, has anyone seen Battle L.A. yet?  It looks interesting, and I thought about going to see it tomorrow.  Well, later today, since it's already after midnight.

Regarding dracula movies, they both suck. The original would go as parody, and the remake was just plain.

LOL  I always liked Johnny Mnemonic.  I like Ice-T's character, J-bone.  Anarchist rapper.  Pretty much played himself.

BTW, lacking any reviews, I went to see Battle: Los Angeles.  I liked it.  Lot of similarities to Independence Day, naturally -- both have aliens attacking earth, duh.  But Battle: Los Angeles is much better in my opinion.  More feasible, anyway.

Of course, I still watch Independence Day once in a while, when it comes on FX.  Lots of 'splosions.

Hunh.  I will have to watch this.  It also has my favorite fake Highlander, Christopher Lambert.

"There can be only one!  Or, well, maybe two.  Maybe a few more, if they're from another planet, or locked in a mountain by a wizard.  Or maybe a cousin, if it's on TV."

Ahh... Highlander 2, the movie that shall be disavowed by any fan of the series for being the WORST crap ever, made only slightly less like getting punched in the face by the presence of Sean Connery.  Granted, his magic return made me want to slit my wrists.  Worse movie in a series, EVER.

Just got back from watching "Your Highness." 

It was fricken hilarious.  Almost as if it started life as a cheeky porno.  Any movie with a minotaur penis is worth watching once.   :comegetsome:

Welcome to Hollywood. It used to be "Let's do lunch", but now it's "Let's do lunch... IN MY PANTS!! Ooooh, SNAP!"

I was thinking about going to see that "Your Highness" tomorrow.  I think I will.  I mean, if Gaz endorses it, what other review do I need?

A bad review in the newspapers or on T.V. shows. That's the TRUE test of quality for a movie - all the noted public critics hate it.

Seriously, that's my normal test for sci-fi or fantasy.

Didn't "Avatar" get good reviews?  *cough*

Yeah.  That shows it's not 100% reliable.

Actually, Avatar was okay, if unoriginal.  The 3D was a lot better than the plot.
