just saw a movie called ´centipede horror´ (original title: ´Wu gong zhou´) from 1984

i read somewhere something about it being ´most disturbing horror flick ever´. maybe it was a hidden classic?

i should have done my research better because that flick seriously sucked wasn´t disturbing nor scary only laughable...

in the end there were centipedes and laughable performances by (to me) unknown asians that acted badly...

don´t watch it!
you watched Run, Bitch Run! yet? if not have a gander and reaffirm your love of dodgy exploitation movies.
shit! i completely forgot about that! have to search that flick!

thanks for the reminder, nom

i promise you, you wont be disappointed there's boobs galore and an absolutely fantastic scene towards the end you will not forget.

Death at a Funeral 2007

was recommended this by a friend who said it was great, Frank Oz directed and has quite a few decent actors. kinda fun i guess if youre in the mood for a black comedy version of four weddings. there were a few good bits, couple of laugh out loudmoments but nothing really stood out. if you've got nothing better to do its worth a watch.
lol. a colleague of mine borrowed me that movie 6 months ago. he keeps asking if i watched it but i wasnt in the mood yet

i think the us remake is in the theatres right now...

it has tracy morgan in it but i guess it´s the usual crap version of a european movie...
Fired Up!

The Movies can show us strange worlds... worlds in which lonely farm boys rescue space princesses... worlds in which the bad guys always miss and the heroes never die... and, just sometimes, they show us worlds in which high schoolers look like late 20-somethings, and impeccably sexy girls will smile at and French kiss you at the oldest and simplest of cheesy lines.

Caught this on Netflix streaming, and I'm not ashamed to say that I enjoyed it. It's not anywhere as insightful as, say, Superbad, but while I was disturbed by that flick's casual dancing in and out of reality, this one is in fantasyland the whole time, and I respect it for that.

Good clean fun for those who think "poor man's Wedding Crashers in a late-20s high school" sounds amusing. Thank goodness Netflix streamed the unrated cut, with its surprisingly witty dialog between the two rather engaging leads (there's references to Fraggle Rock and Yakkety-Yak. What's not to like? Smile)

B-. Hot Rod it ain't, but it's a decent if inferior companion piece.
I've yet to see UP or Ratatouille, but for my money, no production company/creative group has churned out such consistently high-quality movies, animated or otherwise, as Pixar. Of all their offerings that I have seen, only A Bug's Life was a disappointment.
Perhaps it's also the father in me, but Finding Nemo is simply a fantastic movie. It is a great adventure, it is heart-warming, fantastic message, and wonderfully executed story-telling. And as a father, few movies hit me more than watching this with my two boys.
Cars, while not quite as well-rounded, is great fun and hits the mark for it's targeted group, children.

And WALL*E? That is pure awesomeness from the opening scene through the final credits.

I've heard nothing but great things about UP, but I still can't find myself to watch Ratatouille as it just does not look interesting in any manner. But as it is a Pixar movie, I will give it a go eventually. Again, with their batting average, I have to give them a chance every time.

Toy Story = Awesome
A Bugs Life = Really f'ing boring
Toy Story 2 = Fantastic sequel that nearly surpasses the original
Monsters Inc = Awesome with heart (The final "Kitty" gets me every time)
Finding Nemo = See above Smile
The Incredibles = fantastic mash-up of genres
Cars = Good, tiny bit long, but still a winner
Ratatouille = never saw
WALL*E = wonderful
Up = never saw


Seriously, what studio can boast a track record like that?

+1 (except I have one girl rather than two boys)
absolutely go and watch Ratatouille as soon as possible, after Wall-E its my second favourite Pixar flick and thats pretty high praise considering their back catalogue.
glad to see someone else loves Ratatouille, I can understand where it would seem like a uninteresting story since by comparison its not much of an adventure tale. but its a damn good movie.
Patton Oswalt is pitch perfect for Remy the rat, and the story is more adult than most animated movies - even other Pixar films.
