As far as the oscar's go, from the movies nominated that I've personally see I would really like the long shot Up get the nod but it will probably go to the Hurt Locker which was really good as well. I've heard really good things about Up in the Air so I'll have to check that out soon too, but I still need to see book of eli soon as well as the wolfman and shutter island over the next couple weeks.
And for anyone who's seen it, is Zombieland worth a rental or straight up purchase for someone who loved shaun of the dead?
Definitely worth a rental, I don't think you'd be disappointed with buying it either. I wasn't even much a fan of shaun of the dead but I loved Zombieland. I thought it was the perfect mix of character between Woody Harrelson and that Jesse whatshisname guy. I plan on stopping at the store and buying it either tomorrow or thursday. You could rent it on Redbox and then buy it if you wanna watch it whenever. If I plan on buying a dvd though I recommend buying it during the first week it's out, when most stores like Target and Best Buy have them on sale for like 15.99, vs. the next year once the week is over when the price will go up to 19.99.

Zombieland was cool, but not as good as Shaun... rent it first and if ya like it enough, buy it.

watched Zombieland last nite,I'll give it 2 out of 4 stars.The cameo was cool,but I could see what was going to happen to him coming from a mile away.I like Woody,the previews that showed before Zombieland looked interesting,Defendor with Woody,and Grownups with Adam Sandler and all his cronies

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

So I just saw a preview for that Tooth Fairy movie with The Rock. Or Dwayne Johnson or whatever he calls himself. I mean... How on God's green earth did that thing make it to theaters? Someone actually paid for that crap screenplay, then paid to cast actors and a production staff, and actually put that shit on the big screen? Admittedly I know next to nothing about how Hollywood works (I do watch Entourage though), but how... just... how??

If someone wanted me to go see that movie, I would ask for a kick in nuts and we could just call it even.

In the evening I threw on "Blow." Obviously I've seen it probably half a dozen times at this point, but I just love it. Such a bad-ass flick.

Then before I went to bed I watched the Biggie Smalls biography "Notorious." Pretty solid. I had very low expectations going in. It wasn't great, but the dude who played Christopher Wallace did an excellent job.
The director did such a good job on syncing the movie with the graphic novel. They truly held the movie in check with the book. I loved the fact that they didn't hollywoodize the graphic novel to cram it into 2 hours. Like mredskins stated the read is just as good. Ever since reading the book I read as much of Alan Moore as I can.

Another graphic novel I am waiting for to be made into a movie or series on HBO, showtime, or some other pay channel is a series by Garth Ennis calle "Preacher" totally awsome and totally messed up. A story about a bastard child of an angle and demoness, a drunken vampire and a preacher in search of God to find out why he abandoned heaven...

This is a great web site to see just how well shit sells.

First look up the big ones like Titanic, Avatar, etc... then look up a couple crappy ones they crank in the money as well! Also pay attention to international sales, a movie could be a total bust here but just crank overseas.

I think your missing the point with this movie,its not aimed at adults,looks like it would be a good movie to take the kids to.

Its gonna be a movie with Paul Bettany and I think it comes out in August.

I can't wait for "The Walking Dead" which will be airing on AMC and is being directed by Frank Durabont who also directed Shawshank Redepmtion, The Green Mile, and The Mist. I wish it was gonna be done by HBO to match the grittyness of the books, but I've heard that late night AMC shows sometimes get away with things you can't do on primetime.

Actually he has done a couple, Pacifier(113 million) and Gameplan(90 million from the earlier link), which were in the same style. Fairly good clean comedy that a family can watch . Certainly its not targeted for the blood and guts type crowd.
