    Wow...what a shame. Made primarily for Europe, where DD is a popular comic book, the makers of this had their budget cut in half a few weeks before production. Brandon Routh, who seems a good egg, trying so hard to redeem hisself for Superman Returns, oh what could have been.

    Tell you what, I LOVE THIS MOVIE. Because they had to do things cheap cgi is used sparingly and they were forced to use practical fx and wire work and old school tools. Is it genre changing? Nope. But like the ugly girl in the room, it tries harder. I spent most of my youth working in video stores w/vestron, cannon, carolco, and this movie can stand proudly next to Metalstorm:The Destruction of Jared Syn, or Dungeonmaster anyday. Just gum and tinfoil holding together a bare bones fun movie. This movie charmed the pants off me, literally...wearing no pants.

    I have been wanting to watch Stakeland, actually. :D

    Kinda torn on this one. Hella good carnage and siege stuff. Some solid acting all around, including Jason Flemyng(pleasant surprise to see he was in this, had no idea) and a bunch of recognizable faces as the undermanned crew holding a keep from King John. I am not a history buff but even with little knowledge it felt like they fudged some of the historical accuracy. It just kinda felt enjoyable but a tad silly. Especially Paul Giamatti, who didn't so much chew scenery as get a poli-death grip on it and wrestle it into submission. Apparently the only direction he was given was to shout his lines with a voice verging on hysteria or straight up emotional breakdown. Worth a rental or a watch on cable. Lotsa heads getting halved and head/shoulder seperation, so there's that...

    Ok but I see there's a chick on the poster wielding a mace of some sort. My question to you is: How did the chick fare? Is this a Boobytrap friendly movie?

    Probably not. The only purpose she really serves is to tempt the Knight Templar(Purefoy) from his vow of chastity. I felt she came off a little one-note-y and overly agressive, but like I said, there is an air of silliness about this flick that kind of makes it hard to take any issues too seriously. You might have fun with it. She does get to cave a head or two in as well.

    I just saw the movie The Help last night. It was nothing short of amazing. This movie had just the right mix of funny, drama, action and well rounded story that I like. It’s really hard to believe that a little under 50 years ago that this kind of stuff went on. It was a very touching movie that I recommend everyone watch.
    Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer were amazing as Aiby and Minny. Bryce Dallas Howard as Hilly plays the bitch well, and Emma Stone as ‘Skeeter’ plays the naïve woman-child perfectly.
    The movie has both light and heavy parts to it, and I almost cried on three occasions.
    This was a very touching movie that I hope gets it’s due.

    Hurm. Watched this the other day. Questions. I guess I wasn't expecting such an INDY diy kinda flick. Probly gonna have to give this another go. Best way to describe, imagine if Kick-Ass was rubbed with the whole WATCHMEN masks = sexual perversion stuff to the Nth degree. Rainn Wilson actually exceeded, most everyone else was drawing scale for a day or two on set. Ellen Page was creepy/annoying, yet


    SPOILERS



    that resolved itself nicely. The really sweet overly sentimental ending (including the long shot of R.W. weeping) really put a bow on the weird tone of this movie. It's kind of a head scratcher.

    NOW THIS IS THE ****!!!!
    Why did I wait so long to watch this???? CLEARLY Evil Dead influenced, yet unlike a lot of the hamfisted apefests, this one does all the right things. Almost effortlessly makes you sad when the archetypes, errr I mean characters, start dying.
    Wait, getting ahead of myself. I knew within the first 10 minutes i was gonna dig this. Put it on and you will see wHat I mean.
    The grue is very practical...lotsa innards on display. And every once in a while things go all styly bone white. There are scenes with the Nazi Zombies that can best be described as Yellow Submarine meets Marilyn Manson. There is one scene where a major character, after being knocked the **** out, wakes, sort of, in a veiled haze...to the sight of zombos shufffling her innards...really solid stuff here kids, WIRKOLA is a name to be watched.

    Ok so I finally got around to watching this

    watchmen_poster2.jpg

    I am a huge fan of the comic book so I was a bit worried. Nothing to worry about though. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie of the comic book. They did it right and Rorschach was (and still is) the heart and soul of the movie/story. Well done!

    EDIT: Wow what an incredibly small pic of the poster!!

    British/Scottish debut from Rupert Wyatt(Rise of the Planet of the Apes) look, it's a prison escape flick...so you know it's going to hit a lot of tried and true...oh hell, wait a minnit, no it isn't. Time shifty and 'we'll let you see a little bit when ya need to'...and the actors...Brian MOTHER****ING Cox, Liam(soon to be on Game of Thrones) Cunningham, Damian(LIFE...happy now Doc) Lewis, well...this is a gem boys and girls.

    EDIT:Hadn't seen the end of this when I originally posted, and now that I have...even better than I thought. No wonder Wyatt did such a good job with Rise, the last 10 minutes or so of this are almost dialogue free, and I am sitting at work with a tear rolling down my face. HIGHLY recommended.
