Yep. They deserve it too.

Ice Age 4: The Meltdown- I enjoyed it, just as I did the others.

The Host (Not the Korean one)- My sister wanted to watch it. Overall it wasn't all that bad.

I loved those Apes movies when I was a kid, even when the budgets plummeted and the costumes and masks looked more and more like they were bought from Woolworth's.

Even the crummy TV show, although it didn't hold up very well when I bought the DVD set years later.

I'm only just watching the sequels now, I had seen the original as a kid, but heard the follow-ups were crap.

But recently I began reading how they actually were good, so I became interested, and picked up the box-set for £10.

Beneath is fucking crazy, it starts out as a re-tread, but then goes absolutely bug-fuck, I loved it.

Saying they're "crap" is oversimplifying what happened as budgets were scaled down. I like them all for the stories and the expansion of the history of it all. Plus, Roddy McDowell gives his all no matter how chintzy the mask gets. :lol:

The last film I watched is Edmond, a David Mamet thing. Hated it.

It was...heavy-handed and clunky, so Bendis's Mamet imitation is spot-on apparently. Except Mamet uses a lot more racial slurs.

The Wolverine and Trance. Both were good movies.

What did you think of that one? Lots of little things in it tie in to the other movies.

Dammit, netflix only has the first movie. I should really buy those on blu ray or something. I used to have the VHS set.

I liked it, it was great how it started off as a comedy then effortlessly transitioned into something really dark.

Little tie-ins? Like Dr Haslein?

Yep, stuff like that. I was thinking of that one in particular. There's some things in the next movie too, like Breck. McDowell is great (again) as Caesar in Conquest. They had to cut a lot of violent scenes just to get a PG rating instead of an R, and all the other Apes films were G, I think.

The last bluray release they restored some but not all of the cut scenes.

Aren't the soundtracks amazing?
