    Welcome to Nollywood, a documentary about the movie industry in Lagos, Nigeria. I thought it was great!

    Their industry only began in 1990 and as of 2007 (the year they made the documentary) they were churning out 2400 movies a year. They sell the movies directly on VHS or VCD rather than showing them at theaters, and their movies are more popular than imported films from Bollywood or the US. One of the directors showed how he built a movie projector from scratch and showed movies in his shed. They went on location to shoot a movie and they had never made a movie that cost so much or that took so long to shoot, and it was incredible.

    I would really like it if they could import some of the Nigerian movies here, but I fear that would ruin their industry by taking away the sort of community feel and grassroots efforts of Nollywood. I really admire the writers, directors, actors, special effects people. From what little I saw, their movies are pretty cool and they make movies with a lot less money or equipment than in Hollywood.

    Project X. Loved it!! It gave me flashbacks to my teens years while making me cringe as a parent. The mistake I made was to then watch the interview with the real kid who had the party at his home in Melbourne. He's a total douche while his character in the movie is a loveable loser.

    Fright Night (Colin Farrell version). I liked it. Entertaining. Plus, he's not to hard to look at.

    And soon the darkness (1970) a very good creep mystery that takes place in countryside of France

    Twilight: Eclipse: it sucked but it was watchable

    Jeepers Creepers- I've seen it a number of times. I like it.

    The Green Hornet. I could only watch it for 45 minutes...it's really awful. To turn the character into some hipster nerd douchebag just destroyed the whole story for me...Seth Rogen was all kinds of wrong for the part.

    Watched Back to the Future with my kids. I spent half of the movie saying, "Don't say that!" or "Don't ever let me catch you riding on the back of a car with a skateboard." LOL I forgot how much fun it was though.

    I didn't do shit in this heat but sit up under the AC and watch movies: Twister and The Day After Tomorrow...totally preposterous and totally entertaining. Helen Hunt's and Bill Paxton's characters should have died twenty times in the first movie. The latter has ridiculous science, but the scene of NYC getting swamped by the storm surge gets me every time.

    Yeah, they don't pretend to be anything more than they are, mindless entertainment with attractive leads and good F/X.

    prometheus. i liked it. it was entertaining, visually stunning, funny and at times grotesque (in a good way). fassbender, rapace and theron were great. i was a little disappointed that they wasted guy pearce's hotness by making his character old and crusty but he was good in his role too.

    oh yeah, saw the trailer for the new tarantino and i can't wait! it looks awesome.
    life of pi looks like it might be worth it too, the clip they showed was gorgeous.

    I have a soft spot for Twister, too.

    I watched quite a few movies lately, but nothing new. The Young Victoria, The Adjustment Bureau, watched Requiem for a Dream again, and finally got around to watching Contagion. Contagion was better than I thought it would be, and also way scarier. I loved the concept of The Adjustment Bureau, but it seemed lacking something. I absolutely loved pretty much everything about The Young Victoria.

    Twister is good for a laugh. The most ridiculous part is when Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton are tethered to a pole or something by just a belt and the twister goes right above them and they are gazing into the epicenter. Such b.s. Their asses would have been shredded and blown a few miles away in real life.

    The last movie I saw was the ridiculous Rock of Ages which I chastised in another thread so I won't bother you with my scathing review here.

    Street Scene from 1932 or so. It was good, though I think there could have been more than one scandal (there were multiple adulteries) when it comes to that many people living in a brownstone. On a whole though, it was good, and felt like a filmed play (Which it was) which some film renderings do not.

    The young female lead was especially good.

    I am surprised I hadn't heard of her by name before. Turns out she's been in tons of things that I've scene but I've always thought of her as an older character actress. Seeing her as the young ingenue with wisdom and character beyond her years and 'street education' was very enjoyable.
