Open Season.

The kids loved it, but jeez, how many {insert animal} quest movies can the Earth stomach?  I spent a good portion of the film in the blissful state of sleep.  I was dreaming of sneaking out and watching the Texas Chainsaw movie in the next theatre...

As some of you know, I went and saw The Marine Friday night.  This movie stars current WWE Champion John Cena in what is more or less a throwback to the old style Schwarzenegger/Stallone movies from the 80s and early 90s.  While this was definately a rather cheesy movie overall it did have some good action sequences and Robert Patrick was fantastic as the over the top villain.  He was hilarious.  This movie is for those times when you've had a rough day and need some good escapism.  Plus that Kelly Carlson is one hot woman.  Oh man!!!

I went and saw The Nightmare Before Christmas 3D today.  I won't really comment on the movie since it's not a new one and I already knew I liked it but if you haven't seen it, this is a great opportunity to do so.  I would have seen it in the theatres without the 3D.  The conversion to 3D was really well done though unlike the 3D moments in Superman Returns.  The movie really comes alive. 

They also had Pixar's Knick Knack in 3D before hand.  If I'm not mistaken I believe it's Pixar's first short.  It converted really well too.  I was quite impressed. 

The best part of the whole experience is that you get to keep the snazzy glasses afterwards:

This movie is a favorite of ours and we are definitely going to see the 3D version.  Glad to hear that the effect is good with this one.

You’re a DICK. 

My wife actually suggested we go see this on Friday night but only one theater in the area has it and it was sold out!  This is by far one of my favorite movies and I try to watch it every year on my birthday (Halloween).  We might just go one night this week.

Caught Saw III last night and it was very cool.  Not as good as the first one but definately better than the second one.  I don't know how they keep coming up with these new "games" for the victims to play but they do.  It had quite the ending too.   As with the other ones, this movie is definately not for the squeamish as I think they may have actually found a way to increase the level of violence.

I saw Flags of Our Fathers at the Uptown theater in DC on Saturday night.  That was my first experience at that theater, and I can't recommend it enough.  It isn't a multiplex, there's just one screening room, and the screen is enormous!  And it has a balcony (but we didn't sit up there).  It even had giant curtains that covered the screen, and opened and closed before and after the movie.  So for those in the DC area who haven't had the opportunity to see a movie at the Uptown, it is definitately worth the trip.  I am pissed at myself for having skipped this theater experience for the past 6 years.

As to the movie, it was very good.  The battle scenes were similar to Saving Private Ryan, but they were different enough to make them memorable to this movie.  I really didn't know much about Iwo Jima, so it was also a good educational experience.  The best way I can sum up this movie is that it is one of the few that I can remember where the entire audience stayed through the ending credits and actually broke out in applause at the end.

I've seen many a flick at the Uptown. Generally, while it's nice to watch a movie from the balcony, the acoustics are really terrible up there. The Mazza Gallerie also has nice theaters.

I saw 45 minutes of Cars, before Chloe decided she wanted to go home.

Today I got to see 45 minutes of Flushed Away, before Chloe decided the movie was too scary and we had to leave. Too bad, it was really funny.

I want to see Flushed Away, it looks good for adults unlike all these CGI pack-of-animals movies that come out all the time.  Gotta go see Nightmare 3D and Borat first though.

I went and saw this Saturday night on the Imax 3D and I don't know if it was because I had low expectations or what it was, but I actually enjoyed it.  I though agree that there are too many animals running loose movies out there.  There's two of them coming out alone that involve penguins - Happy Feet and some other one about surfing penguins. 

I do want to see Flushed Away as well and may try to see that this week or on the weekend.  Still haven't seen any of the Wallace and Grommit stuff but this looks really cool.

Speaking of W&G, I finally got to see Curse of the Were-Rabbit on DVD, and I think I actually hurt myself laughing so much.  It's really a fantastic movie.

Saw Flushed Away yesterday and I absolutely loved it.  One of the funniest (animated) movies I've seen.  Great movie for the whole family. There's even some jokes that the kids may not get but will be funny to adults.  One such joke is [spoiler]when the main character voiced by Hugh Jackman is trying to decide what to wear at the beginning of the movie and one of the outfits is the yellow and blue Wolverine costume.[/spoiler]  The voice acting in this movie was top notch and I also really liked how they used main stream music  like "Are you gonna be my girl?" by Jet in the movie.
