I hear the remake is pretty good. I actually bought it on Blu (for, like, $7), but haven't watched it yet.
I finished this last night.
I remember when it first came out, I wanted to see it because I thought Jack was the ****, but it got pretty bad reviews and I stayed away. Then I recently heard/read someone talking about it and saying it was cool, so when it showed up on one of the movie channels in HD, I DVR'd it.
I thought it was awesome. Jack rocks the **** out of this movie and I love how he looks like Wolverine half the time. And Michelle Pfeiffer... I've never been that big a fan of hers and never thought she was all that attractive (not ugly, but...), but she was great in this movie and pretty damn hot, too.
So, yeah... I liked it a lot. The monster effects are actually pretty decent and nowhere near as cheesy as I'd feared.
Also watched for the first time:
Nope. Had never seen it. Thought it was pretty funny. Enjoyable. Would watch it again, but don't think I'd buy it.
I bought this at Big Lots for $3. I had never seen it and it has a commentary track that includes Simon Pegg's mom, so I figured it would be worth $3. It's not bad. Has it's moments and is worth watching. Haven't listened to that commentary track yet.
