I think he already has. I'm excited to see Howard as War Machine.

I got up "early" this morning to see the earliest possible showing of SPEED RACER!

After the first ten minutes, there's an hour or so of complete dogshit, with cringe-worthy child acting and way too much back story... I almost walked out... and then it picks up midway through for another hour and fifteen minutes of genuine awesome. GENUINE.

Go ahead and mock Speed Racer, and me for seeing it... I love me some campy vintage TV converted to oversaturated CG cartoon full-length glory. And don't think I'd hesitate for a second to see the next TMNT, or another live action He-Man and the Masters of the Universe.

Just got back with the kids, we saw Speed Racer as well...
The NY papers gave it really bad reviews, so there were a lot of empty
seats...
But I agree with the above post...

Loved "Iron Man"
Thought "Speed Racer" was damn fun roller coaster ride, but not everyon'e cup of tea
"Harold and Kumar" 2, while not as effective as the first, was still great fun for me (and NPH cannot be denied!)
"Prince Caspian" was at the very least better than the first, and pretty enjoyable in it's own right. Props to the writer for at least attempt to give Susan something to fucking do, a project Lewis never took to. Also, the irritation at the way these stories end stays even in their film versions.
"Baby Mama:" My friends dragged me to see this tripe because she was having an awful day and I wanted to cheer her up. Afterwards, I told her we weren't hanging out again until she apologized.

Oh... did Indiana Jones come out on Wednesday? Am I a foolish fool?

Prince Caspian reiterates to me my confusion over why Christians love C. S. Lewis. Isn't it some kind of ridiculous blasphemy to have children worship and have faith in a lion? Sounds mighty pagan to me. I have no problem with it, but it fascinates me when my mom tells me how the Christian radio stations are all willing to consider it an allegory.

The new Indiana Jones movie was terrible. Absolutely terrible. All sorts of ridiculous and far-fetched things happen in Indiana Jones movies, but this one takes it ten steps too far on more than one occasion. I didn't go in with any expectations and still came out feeling gypped.

They believe Aslan represents Jesus/God metaphorically. There are bits where i can definitely see the thinly veiled allegory. Lewis, after all, was an atheist converted to Christianity.

Quote of the day.

As for Indiana Jones movies, I like them except the ones with Harrison Ford.

Indy 4 rocked pretty hard in my opinion. Could've done with some Connery, but it definitely felt like a solid entry, having watched the original trilogy in consecutive days before seeing the new one.
