Boosh - Can't say as surprisingly, I have never heard of that movie. May have to do some investigating.

Haven't watched a lot of movies lately as I've been working my way through the special features of the special edition DVD of The Fellowship Of The Ring. It is amazing how far they went with things like intricate details on weapons and costumes that no viewer would ever have a chance of seeing but seems to be done more for the actors sake to fully immerse themselves in being from Middle Earth.

Anway what I have watched is Scoop. Probably the most disappointing Woody Allen movie in a long time. It was a predictable story with not much humour. If you are not a fan of Woody I wouldn't even bother watching this unless it's on TV on a night that you have absolutely nothing to do at all. 6.5/10 solely because I am a fan.

Much more worthwhile watching is Lantana. An Aussie movie with Anthony LaPaglia and Geoffrey Rush that swept the AFI awards in 2001(2?). On the surface it is about a missing person and the cop investigating it, but really the movie is about relationships, especially couples that have been together for a while, and in my opinion it has some smart, relevant things to say regarding them. Great acting from all, competent directing and a well constructed screenplay. 8.5/10

For some reason this weekend was boobie filled:

Eurotrip - 4/10 pretty funny actually, and that song is damned catchy (also, wtf matt damon), but just too cheesy

100 Girls - 6/10 boobies at EVERY turn, and in the end Larisa Oleynik and Katherine Heigl kiss... yet even so it still managed a smart, funny compare and contrast of the way men and women play mind games with eachother.

I hated 100 Girls. I found it typical straight-to-video horndog trash. Sadly enough, the director of it is still making movies (such as Shoot 'Em Up and a planned remake of Outland).

100 Girls - is that the movie where some guy has sex with a girl during a blackout and spends the rest of the movie trying to find her? I didn't know Katherine Heigl was in that.

I watched Ghostbusters today, pretty good not great though. Sigourney Weaver was freakin hot back in the 80s, 7/10

I don't know, these 80s movies have been just blah for me. I can see why Ghostbusters was so popular when it came out, but Beetlejuice did absolutely did nothing for me.

Next up from netflix is Battle Royale, which should have more of an impact than those two. Let's hope...

I do have to say, Ghostbusters has not aged well. The effects are terrible. I still love the movie, but I also saw it when I was a kid and watched the cartoon and had Ghostbuster action figures. If I were in the same boat as Banks, I might have thought the same thing.

I'd love to hear NSpan's detailed analysis of the many layers of Beetlejuice though. That sounds like a fantastic read.

Maybe they should update the effects and repackage DVD/Blurays like they did with Star Wars. That'd be pretty cool. They could re-release it in theaters during some October.

Slimer and the Stay-Puft Man look better than 90% of today's CGI. I'd rather watch the effects of Ghostbusters than say, the effects of Spider-Man 2 (in which 95% of Spider-Man's appearances have a CGI double instead of an actor).

Tombstone (82/100): If you don't want to hear about how this film modified history, skip this post please. This was a pretty good western, but as a biopic (that's how I viewed it) on Wyatt Earp, it was a little too cut and dry for me. First off, there was a gang (with looser ties than shown) called the Cowboys and the Earps did get in a fight with them. The Earps were not liked by a lot of the town because they were seen as Yankees that abused their powers of authority for monetary gain and the Cowboys were liked by more of the town than shown because they had a lot of money to spend and spent it in the town. The murder of the sheriff was completely accidental, he said so on his deathbed (didn't die right away). No one is sure who fired the first shot at the O.K. Corral. Wyatt was actually brought up on charges for murder. The slant that history has taken on Earp is that he was 100% a great guy that was upholding the law, like the guy from Walking Tall.

In short, for me it was like making a Civil War film and saying the only cause was slavery. Or like making a biopic about George Washington and showing him chopping down a cherry tree. It's nice, it's simple, but its just not completely true. I actually would have liked a little more moral ambiguity in it myself.

Since I viewed it as a work of fiction, though, I gave it a pretty good grade.

Otherwise, it'd look like Adam West's Batman film.

For a much better adaptation, try 1946's "My Darling Clementine" directed by John Ford and starring Henry Fonda. (That or the original series Star Trek episode that had the Enterprise crew as the Clanton gang

Yes, she is the queen of strip Foosball

Also, I still have not yet seen ghostbusters, so I will have to provide a similar un-nostalgic review soonish. I think its on hulu.

If you don't want to read a pretentious response to this, skip this post please:

Spoiler:
When I heard the learn’d astronomer;
When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me;
When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them;
When I, sitting, heard the astronomer where he lectured with much applause in the lecture-room,
How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick;
Till rising and gliding out, I wander’d off by myself,
In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars.

--Walt Whitman
