I don't get it.

I just got done watching Van Helsing.

I was expecting a drooling bucketload of crap. I have yet to meet anyone who actually liked the film, including people who worked on it, and I've heard so much about how it sucked goat cheese that I was expecting this grotesquerie of bad filmmaking.

Dammit, I liked it. I thought it was a fun rompy adventure. It was hugely tongue-in-cheek and chock full of CGI that wasn't quite realistic, but come on!

And yesterday I watched Ecks vs. Sever, and I liked it as well. And I also liked Darkness, and people have been pushing out what dreck it was.

Have I gone nuts? Has being in Iowa skewed my movie judging skills so much?

I don't think so. I think that I am willing to accept movies in context. And I think that making movies gives me a different viewpoint than most people as well. So yeah, I'm special.

I've also heard two "I love this movie" reviews of Phantom of the Opera. I'm wondering if they replaced or re-pitched the singing. I doubt if I'll see it in the theater, but there are some new films coming up that I probably will see:

White Noise

Hostage (Bruce Willis movie, saw the trailer today)

and possibly
Boogeyman

Then again, if all goes well, I won't have time. :)

Yay!

There's no need to fear, Underdog is here.

When criminals in this world appear,
And break the laws that they should fear,
And frighten all who see or hear,
The cry goes up both far and near for
Underdog,
Underdog,
Underdog,
Underdog.

Speed of lightning, roar of thunder,
Fighting all who rob or plunder
Underdog, Underdog.

When in this world the headlines read
Of those who's hearts are filled with greed
And rob and steal from those in need.
To right this wrong with blinding speed goes
Underdog,
Underdog,
Underdog,
Underdog.

Speed of lightning, roar of thunder,
Fighting all who rob or plunder
Underdog, Underdog.

Gah.

Down today.

Made a big-ass salad because I'm too lazy to cook.

Looks seriously like I may have company next weekend. This is a good thing.

Must to other stuff now.
