Perks of Being a Wallflower. It was ok. I was expecting better! The 3 leads were great though.

We had terrible film day yesterday, so I saw a lot.

Dungeons & Dragons 3: The Book of Vile Darkness - It was as bad as you can imagine (it played out like a D&D campaign, and I'm pretty sure most of the crowds were LARPers). But not nearly as bad as...

Evil Aliens - Probably the worst movie I've ever seen in my life. Not even so bad it's good - it was just really, really bad.

Season of the Witch - Even with some decent actors (Ron Perlman, Christopher Lee), it still had Nic Cage as a blond-ish crusader (famed throughout the land!) transporting a witch to a monastery. It has a twist that would've been interesting if the rest of the movie had been any good. We watched it with a medieval historian. It was fun.

Hirokin: The Last Samurai - Even more offensive than Tom Cruise being the last samurai, in that there weren't even any Asian people in the film. The last samurai was instructed in "the Wei" by a Scottish guy! Starring Wes Bentley, the poor man's Jake Gyllenhal and graduate of the Keanu Reeves School of Acting, with Julian Sands as the bad guy. It was a desert civilisation comprised almost exclusively of white people who clearly weren't used to living in the desert given that, by the end of the film, they were all sunburnt.

Blue Gate Crossing (Lánsè dà mén) - Coming of age story, beautifully done

Treeless Mountain (Namueopneun San) - Very poignant tale of two little girls abandoned by their mother

The Restless (Jungcheon - literally Midheaven) - Very sweet love story / fantasy / adventure

Returner - Neat little sci fi flick

But I'm a Cheerleader- I enjoyed this quite a bit.

I quite like Ritana/Returner! I recently saw another Takeshi Kaneshiro film: K-20. I really liked that, too. It has elements of anything from Robin Hood to Batman to V for Vendetta... with Tesla weapons! The plot itself is predictable, but it's just fun to watch.

The latest film I watched was When Worlds Collide. Very 50s and way too religious for my tastes. I've seen worse, though. I also saw Rise of the Apes not too long ago. Good enough for watching after a night of clubbing, nothing that takes too much brainpower, but not a film I'd recommend for serious watching.

Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol - Not as enjoyable as the first 3. I was actually a little bored.

Saw Wreck-it Ralph with the kiddo. It was pretty good! Jane Lynch as the Hero's Duty commander was probably my favorite, plus the design of Sugar Rush, a CandyLand type racing game. Before that we saw Frankenweenie, which I also enjoyed.

Haven't seen a grown-up movie in a while, which is fine by me.

I rented the Avengers from Redbox and actually really enjoyed it. Obviously it's not Citizen Kane, but it's fun for what it is. I think Marvel in general has done a pretty good job in the movie department.

I watched The Dead Zone on Sunday. Loved it! Also, it reminds me of that funny spoof of it on SNL one time when Christopher Walken hosted. I can't take the "seeing" parts seriously because of that (not sure I ever could). Good flick! I can't believe I'd call it an "oldie" (1983 release) because I remember when it was in theaters and seeing it on TV back in the day, but there it is.

The Cat Returns. I think it's the only Hayao Miyazaki I had never seen. And with good reason. It's OK, but not great. No Totoro. Also saw Ethos. Pretty much nothing I didn't know before. I think I've heard enough of Noam Chomsky talking to last me a lifetime. Finally, DMT: The Spirit Molecule. About the psychoactive DMT. Truly bizarre stuff but the movie is pretty darn good if only for listening to these test subjects. Such vivid, life-changing experiences. It's no wonder shamans have been using the stuff for thousands of years. I can see it having some use in modern medicine. Esp to help mortally ill people come to peace with their own death.

Wreck-it Ralph was great. Last year I said that Hobo with a Shotgun was the best video game movie in history, but I think it's already been topped.

I finally got around to seeing Magic Mike. It was really fun and funny. After seeing it though I can totally get how women have body-image issues from looking at "perfect" models in fashion magazines. Watching Magic Mike I felt like such an absolutely pathetic specimen of masculinity, haha. It's almost enough to get me to the gym. Almost.

Takeshi has done some great stuff. Red Cliff (I and II), The Warlords, Perhaps Love, House of Flying Daggers, Chungking Express.

I saw Safety Not Guaranteed. It was okay. Mark Duplass plays Aubrey Plaza's love interest and he just seems way too old for her. But maybe I'm just jealous. I have such a major crush on Plaza. I want to make out with her for like a billion years.

We just watched that the other night. i thought it was great. He's older than her, but not by a crazy amount. i mean, in real life she's 28 and i think he's 35.

We also just watched Soapdish again. Probably haven't seen that movie in 15 years. It's still so great! Kevin Kline really is the best.

I watched The Roommate. Forty minutes of my life I will never get back (the film's longer than that obviously, but I gave up after forty minutes).

I saw three Kidlat Takimik films this past week:

Perfumed Nightmare (1977)
Turumba (1981)
Who Invented the Yoyo? Who Invented the Moon Buggy? (1982)

Great work, not widely-distributed, part of the Third Cinema canon.

Yeah, maybe I'm selling the movie short. I had heard a lot about it before seeing it so I went in with pretty high expectations. And maybe she just looks young and he looks old, because you're right, that's not an absurd age difference.

"Dude, what does mine say?"

"Sweet!"

Lol, what a dumb movie. I love it. I haven't seen it in years though.

That part was pretty funny!!! A totally super dumb movie. There's some word they said a lot... shibby? Does that ring a bell?

Yes. And don't they visit some weird nerd named Zoltan? I remember being obsessed with that movie when I was like 12, haha.

Yeah, there's a scene where they infiltrate the headquarters of a pseudo-Scientology guru named Zoltan or something like, and everyone is wearing jumpsuits made out of bubble wrap, and then one of the Dudes gets them busted because he can't stop popping the bubble wrap.

No! Stop! Must banish from brain! No more remembering!
