Mystery Men -- a critically acclaimed film which could fuel a new round of avatar changes amongst bored pirates.

I saw Capitan USA. Pretty good, about what I expected. And I expected a good movie. I get it, Marvel can make a good superhero movie. I'm almost bored of them, at this point. XD But the characters are still worth it, and my guess is Avengers will be something a tad more mindblowing.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes
Wasn't expecting too much of it but it is actually quite good. Our scientists here would prolly pick the tech apart and the lead chimps are a bit out of scale, but ignoring that, a seemingly feasible storyline that flows well.

I was wondering what is more difficult: to teach apes to use modified assualt rifles, or to get the research funds to try it out.

If you gave an infinite number of monkeys an infinite number of assault rifles...you'd be a bloody idiot.

Fantastic I always wondered what happened to Benny Lava and his goat .*


*If you can bear to watch the whole video you will see the immortal lines "who put the goat in there?"

Just finished Y Tu Mama Tambien. Excellent film, and the final scene was a nearly perfect execution of Chekhov's Gun. I love that there's really three stories wrapped into one, the main plot, about the road trip, then the story of rural Mexico at the end of the last century, and the politics, scenes and people that make it up, and the third, which I can't say without spoiling it for anyone who might see it, but once the Gun goes off, much of the rest of the film makes a great deal of sense.

Next up, since I seem to be on Gael Garcia Bernal kick, is Even the Rain.

Last Film I saw was Super 8.

Imagine Cloverfield, you remember Cloverfield, right? Now imagine Cloverfield Spielberg style, with children and lots of hoo-rah. That's my description of the film.

^So basically I don't want to see it then. Well the trailers did look a bit boring.

Rise of the planet of the Apes, yeah, it was alright. Nothing to write home about but worth watching for the novelty.
