Metropolis (1927)- I was extremely awestruck by how awesome this movie actually was. This movie was definitely way ahead of its time. The special effects are stunning for its time. Would highly recommend checking it out.

Akira- Finally got around to watching this. It is on most top ten best animated films of all time lists. I thought it was pretty cool. A lot better than many of the animations that the U.S. was releasing during the 80's.

Wreck-it-Ralph- Really liked it. Also liked all the video game character cameos.

Always worthwhile to see, no matter which cut one sees (the big thing now being the fully restored version that premiered a couple of years ago). Even the Giorgio Moroder version from the 80's (which was how I first saw the movie), with its rock score from groups like Queen, is a pretty fun experience. 8)

Yeah, I ended up watching the version that is currently on Netflix. It was a little over 2 hours long and included the original score written for the film. It really was a cool movie. Even if someone doesn't care for silent films, I still recommend checking it out. (As a side note, I kind of want to see that 80's version now haha.)

Watched Hot Fuzz, cause the wife had never seen it. Surprisingly, it was better than I remember.

I really should see Metropolis some day.

Akira is a little overrated in my opinion. It feels so slight, especially compared to the comic.

I was surprised how much I enjoyed Wreck-It Ralph

It has a nice creepy feel to it, but I also found myself fast forwarding a bit to much.

Metropolis is one of those touchstone films that just has to be seen. It's unreal just how much it stands the test of time.

Okay, so we watched The Big Wedding. You guys know that I watch Rom Coms, whatever. This one surprised me in two very distinct ways.

1. The dialogue was very smart, unexpected in such a by the numbers predictable movie.
2. De Niro actually acts, which he hasn't done in forever. It was really nice to see and reminded me why he is considered such a great actor.

I am also 2/3 through a documentary called Encounters at the End of the World. Herzog went to Antarctica and interviews different people who work and live there. It is full of unintentional hilarious bits like when the Penguin expert starts talking about Penguin prostitution. It is also a great and compelling film. Very philosophical.

That's disheartening cause the movie, like the comic, lost a lot of effectiveness after the initial experience of it.

Curse of Bigfoot- Taking a godawful movies from the 50's (Teenagers Battle the Thing) and almost 20 years later, film present day footage with the main story as a flashback. In all, it's a half-assed attempt to cash in on the Bigfoot craze that was popular in the 70's. And the same guys in the lead of the flasback movie are the same actors in the 70's, so they get double shame for this.

Lady Frankenstein- Joseph Cotten, eeking out those final years of his career as the father F. But after his creation kills him, his daughter takes up the family business. The Italians naturally put in a nice dose of naked women to keep you interested, but it's like having a rose bush in a field of stinkweed.

Justice League: Flashpoint Paradox- Now here's Flashpoint done right, with no Pandora or Nu52DCU tacked on the end to mess things up. And the Thomas wayne Batman is still the most badass one around.

Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness - Two of my favorite movies. I don't know how many times I've watched these two films. I have bought Army of Darkness four time on various formats.
