Catching up on movie watching …

Some movies I’ve seen over the last couple of months:

Stuck
I watched this because someone told me it had Mira Sorvino (from The Replacement Killers) in it, imagine my disapointment when it was actually Mena Suvari (from American Pie), I nearly didn’t bother watching beyond the first 15 minutes but persisted and it paid off in the end, with a very unexpected and gory ending.

The Dark Knight
One of the few movies which was able to live up to the hype surrounding it, and that was a big ask since there was a lot of hype. Heath Ledger was most certainly the star of this movie and did an amazing job of being very un-Heath Ledger-like, and I’m not saying this because he’s dead. It didn’t feel like an almost three hour long movie at all, which says a lot.

Iron Man
Another hype liver-upperer, very enjoyable, I hope they make a sequel which doesn’t suck.

The Gamers: Dorkness Rising
Already discussed here.

You don’t mess with The Zohan
My primary thought throughout the first 10 minutes of this movie was “what the fuck” as Zohan fried a fish with his cock out then proceeded to play hackey sack with it and catch it in his arse, but then I remembered it was an Adam Sandler movie and switched my brain off for increased appreciation.

Harold and Kuma Escape From Guantanemo Bay
I really liked the first one, in fact, I reviewed it for DVD.net. Go read that review because unsurprisingly it could apply to this movie as much as it did to the original.

Hancock
What can I say apart from that I didn’t know that was Charlize Theron as a major character until the credits rolled, wierd.
