I wonder how you fell asleep to that

rewatching history documentaries such as "Hannibal - Rome's Worst Nightmare" "The Crusades: Crescent and the Cross" and "Ancient Rome The Rise And Fall Of An Empire: Constantine"

If those count as movies... I watched them again because I couldnt go to the movie theaters today

I just finished watching Taken (it's great to finally get HBO ). It really wasn't that good in my opinion; just a typical action thriller.

Zombie Land, pretty good film, the cover said it had 'strong horror violence' but I didn't even notice it. Had some nice comedy in there too.

The A Team, hmm...not bad, thought it was going to be worse. I liked the Call Of Duty reference.

Several films:

Zombi2 - old zombie horror movie. Movie was alright, even though for back then it was considered scary in modern times it becomes more humour like. 6/10, saw it because 1. it is zombies 2. it is one of the important movies in zombie movie history. Would be boring to watch alone, was great as a group film.

Toy Story 3, never been that much of a fan, heck even thought a third movie would be lame and cheesy. It however didn't dissapoint and actually explored something we all go through but this time through the eyes of a toy and these thoughts might be something that we all thought about at some point. Would our toys be sad if we grew up and stopped playing? Movie had me crying at the ending, the construction might be cliché but that doesn't mean it ends up feeling that way. 9/10

Really? Heard differently from the critics over at RT.

The Social Network The Facebook Movie - 7/10

Quite a nice little story that's trite yet still relevant in our society today. Especially fun if you are a Facebook user. The basic theme here is social status, fame, betrayal, and friendship. You've all heard of the message before. What does it truly mean to have friends when you have 500 million friends across the globe?

The good thing about the plot here is that, even though it's not the freshest of ideas, you could really connect with quite a few aspects throughout the film. Such as:
- Intellectual kids vs. knowledgeable adults. Teenagers nowadays are growing more brains than the 'mature and experienced' adults have.
- Social status. The Winklevoss brothers were 'left behind' in the world where who you are matters - and they are us, the ones who would go out to work in some small company nobody's even heard of. Who's ever even heard of Napster nowadays? Eduardo Saverin got a bite on the tail nearly as worse, betrayed and almost forgotten by the world.
- Ironically, the youngest billionaire in the world has to send a friend request at the end of the movie to the girl he rudely humiliated online at the beginning of the movie. So that brings up another point to the social status topic - who are they, the high status crowd, compared to us (us as in people like Erica, the girl Mark Zuckerberg humiliated), the people who are actually involved in true friendship?

What irks me about the movie, however, is how fictional it is. Sure, it is relevant, but the story is nearly entirely fictional. The true Mark Zuckerberg is nothing like the one portrayed in the film. The events revolving round Facebook is almost nothing like it is as portrayed in the film. I feel that if you have the talent to incorporate the entire truth as it is into a docudrama without fabricating anything yet keeping it just as dramatic, it'd definitely bring out a lot more philosophies we could think about upon our exit of the theater rather than the thin piece of plot The Facebook Movie brings forth right now.

With that, I give it a 7, for a good effort, yet a failed effort. Yes, it matters whether or not it is true to the story it is based on. Ignoring it is like ignoring the original material a remake/reboot is adapting from.

Isn't that kind of the point? Zuckerberg is only ever seen via the lens of a lawsuit, whether the Winklevoss' brothers interpretation of the events (btw, Armie Hammer is drop dead gorgeous as Cameron/Tyler Winklevoss) or Saverin's. We are deliberately not allowed to see Zuckerberg's actual story, only hearing his minor defense against his various attackers, before he simply gives up and decides to settle and move on.

Whatever the case, I'd rate the film as 83/100. Strong direction, great acting (especially Timberlake as Sean Parker), and solid dialogue all make for a very pleasurable movie experience.

The one set in Mexico? Yeah, I thought it was pretty good, if extremely obvious (wow, Aliens attempting to enter America illegally only to be stopped by a giant fence...I wonder if that is in anyway reflective of a modern day problem ). Still, there are some very quite moments that are quite good. 74/100.

Additionally, its hard not to like, or at least respect, a film that was put together for less than a million dollars, and most of which is adlibbed. This is indie at its best.

Father of the Bride I and II.

It's amazing how I love these two movies, and I can't relate to them, like at all. I'm not married nor a dad. Yet I still enjoy them. That normal?
