I saw a trailer for "I, Robot" ... other than very superficial resemblences to Asimov's work, it's definately not his style.  But it looks as though it will be a decent movie anyway, so I'm going to try and see it.

I saw Prisoner of Azkaban on Monday. (Yes, we get it earlier than you US people do.)

*Warning: spoilers ahead for those who have not read the book*

It was good. Not as disappointing as the first two. The acting of the three main characters has improved, though is still noticably weak in some places. Lupin was...not how I imagined him to be, at all. He seemed rather goofy, awkward, and though he appeared to be very pleasant and kind, he didn't feel it. Sirius Black, on the other hand, I have no qualms at all with. I have heard many a girl loudly voice their disappointment at how "un-fit" Black is, and at this I can only roll my eyes in disgust. Sirius Black, for a wanted criminal who had just walked out of Azkaban having spent 12 (?) years in there, looked -perfect-. And Snape, as usual...was delicious. *Smirks*

As for the CGI characters...I was extremely impressed by Buckbeak; less so with the werewolf. The hippogryph was believeable. Its anatomy was superb - the horse hind and bird fore was combined in such a way to make it look completely natural and not at all awkward. It was beautifully animated; the little croons and clacks of the beak, the way the feathers moved, it was all perfect. The werewolf, on the other hand...lets just say it looked like a bald rat. I always pictured werewolves as bigger, stronger, and definitely hairier than the wolf in the film. It looked as if they had spent their time concentrating on Buckbeak at the expense of the wolf. The dementors and Sirius Black's dog form were nicely done, and though they were not as impressive as Buckbeak by far, but I had no problems with them.

They cut a lot from the book that I would have liked to see in, and made some changes that I was not altogether comfortable with. The ending was weak and a little unsatisfactory, and they spent too much time on unecessary parts (such as the bus ride) that could have been better spent on more useful and significant parts of the story.

But, despite all my criticisms, I enjoyed it very much. Enough to book tickets to see it again this coming Thursday. If anyone has seen it already and has a different opinion to voice, I would be interested to hear it.

From what I've seen from the hippogriff, I agree with you.  The only thing taht bothers me about him are the front legs.  Too equine, and it seems almost unnatural.

I thought the forelegs worked very well. The avian legs on gryffins have always bothered me because most of the time when people draw them it just looks too anatomically unrealistic to me. But in the movie they were adapted in such a way as to retain some of the avain feel and appearance, but still work anatomically and maintain a sense of realism.

He could have done with a pair of ears, though.

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind?  

Looks pretty good.  Written by the same guy who wrote Being John Malkovich so it should be very odd and quirky.

I just saw Chronicles of Riddick last Friday and it was awesome.  Riddick is one of the coolest characters ever IMO.

Also saw Harry Potter 3 the week before and it was really cool, too.  My coven went as a group (well, most of us) and dressed up in our black robes and pointed hats (we don't USUALLY wear the hats, though, lol.)

Saw Shrek 2 a little over a week ago. It was absolutely hilarious. And I just saw Chronicles of Riddick on Friday. I suppose it was entertaining (probably could've waited this one out as a rental), though I must confess its prequel, "Pitch Black", was much better. A lot of the Necromonger dialogue sounded corny.

I've seen Harry Potter 3 and I agree with all off you on the Hippogriff. It was awsome looking. Made me wish I could fly on one. Lupin was a big dissapointment though. He didn't look that much like a wolf at all. I also seen troy and I liked it. Having read the Illiad, I found it made me understand the epic more. A great storyline, the trojan war.
I am considering seeing Shrek 2, Two Brothers, and Garfield.



I hope their worth the money.

I just got back from Chronicles of Riddick, and I was very impressed  by how good it actually was. Since I saw Van Helsing, I've been pretty weary of seeing another hyped up sci-fi movie, but a bunch of my friends were going, so my pessimism aside, I saw it anyways. All I can say is...Wow. Great plot, great acting, no characters trying to be overly funny in serious situations *coughvanhelsingcough*, and it did very well keeping an underlying realistic feeling amidst the futuristic themes.

I would definitely recommend seeing it if you're into sci-fi/fantasy movies (as I am), and even if you're not, I would still say catch a matinee, or at least rent it.

In relation to all the recent flops:

Mmmmm, thats good satire.

Really, I'm not looking forward to anything. The age of inspiring movies has come and passed. These are the days of the mass produced for the uncaring mass audience with too much time and money to spend.

I'd almost call it the gilded age of cinemaphotography. With all its stunning CGI and pretty faces - yet talentless acting /  writing / etc.


Whenever money is availible, I may buy the kill bill series or chronicles of riddick. But I'm much more interested in classics like fritz the cat / heavy metal series.

much more so interested in getting american pop, though.
