I finally had a chance to watch Daywatch last night. Directed by the guy who directed Wanted, this was the sequel to the movie based on the Russian fantasy novel Nightwatch.

I had previously seen the Nightwatch movie years ago on a whim, and was interested enough to pick up the first book. I got into the whole series of books immediately after, and I remember being excited to hear they had made a Daywatch movie. But I heard bad things about it; how radically it departed from the source material (so did the first movie, btw). So, I forgot about it for years until I just stumbled upon it last night on Xbox Live. Cheap rental fee, so I said, fuck it.

As it turns out, the second movie isn't really an adaptation of the second book. It's more of a continued adaptation of the first book. And even then, it still diverges significantly from the written story.

Eh. The Nightwatch book series is really a fun read, and it's kinda cool to see the urban fantasy genre from a completely foreign point of view. Even interesting to see their take on the existence of Communism and how it came to exist. The movies provided a gateway to the books, and that was their primary value.

At Worlds End

And it is the BEST of their movies, though Shawn comes close, this one gave Simon Pegg a helluva lot to work with. Great acting chops on this guy!

This. Not bad but they tend to over do it somewhat and thereby making it unfunny. Favorite line is now "Veronica got quite tan!" or however he said that. :lol:

It was O.K., nothing really to throw a party over. The last interesting movie I was Lovelace,
which was better than I expected it to be.

That's the first time I've seen Amanda Seyfred in anything. She surprised me. I was expecting
something about on the level of a Lifetime movie, but she really sells it.


I just watched "Gone". Fairly decent thriller although the ending seemed a bit too easily tied up.

I just finished watching it. Yeah .. that's .. I don't know how to describe it other than slow, creepy, not something I would watch with my mother. :lol:

My mom watched this...

(or at least she tried as it's showing up in her recently watched list on Netflix)

City of God - I love this movie. One of my favourite gangster/crime movies ever.

A Good Old-Fashioned Orgy - It's kind of boring after a while. Nash Bridges is the dad.

Scary Movie 2 - Forgot how awesome this movie was! Wish they would get the Wayans back on the Scary Movie franchise. David Cross and Chris Elliot were awesome bickering back and forth and I totally forgot about the James Woods and Andy Richter Exorcist spoof.

Attack the Block - This movie was surprisingly awesome!

Elysium. Pretty weak, way too many nonsensical plotholes and unexplained stuff in it.

Dallas Buyer's Club. If you would have told me in 2009 that Matthew McConaughey would be one of the best actors in the world by 2013, I'd have called you insane. But here we are and here he is.
