While Halle Berry is no where near as bad as Richards, she is still pretty terrible as a Bond girl. The only thing I can say positive about the movie outside of its opening is Michael Madsen is awesome.
    Die Another Day was a (very bad) live-action cartoon, basically, and the epitomé of why Bond needed a 'reboot' - At that point the series had become self-mockery and a collection of post-modern inside jokes... That's why I was very surprised by the hostile reaction to Daniel Craig and Casino Royale. People claimed it moved away from what made a Bond movie, yet Die Another Day has all of those ingredients and was an absolute stinker... Some people seem to prefer 'traditional' cr@p to innovative quality.

    The Hobbit (Rankin-Bass version): A nostalgic favorite of mine. I saw this when I was two or three years old when my dad taped it off the Disney channel (back when Disney channel was actually good). This got me into reading the Hobbit. The songs in it I tend to sing when I go hiking. Can't wait for the new movie.

    Never seen it, and I never will. In fact, I took off the nostalgia goggles recently and am taking all of my GI Joe, He-Man, Voltron, and Thundercats DVDs over to my local used shop tomorrow to sell them.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    Great movie. I'm a huge Bruce fan, but this is in my top 3 of his movies. Ozzy Davis is great too.

    That's my personal version. I hope the new movie at least still has the songs this one imported from the book.

    Does that mean you don't like GI Joe, He-man, Voltron, and Thundercats anymore?

    Nah, it just means I don't like the cartoons as they have not aged well. They are no Gargoyles or Batman TAS. I love the original GI JOe comic though and I hate what the cartoon did with CC. I have Golion and Dairugger XV for my Voltron fix, as those are the original Japanese versions, which are vastly superior. Thundercats I have not watched since 2005, so the DVDs have done nothing but collect dust. As for He-Man, right now, I have decided to keep the DVDs just because of the Mural.

    Plus, I can always rebuy the DVDs again later if I do suddenly have the urge to watch them again.

    I watched Casino Royale last night. Definitely one of my top favorite Bond movies! Before this month, I think the only Bond movie my wife had seen was Goldeneye and part of Dr. No (I think she watched A View to a Kill with me, also, but she can't remember it).

    I'm trying to do all the Bond movie this month (a feat I haven't accomplished since Middle School during TBS's 13 days of Bond. While I'm trying to do them chronologically, I did jump ahead to make sure she
    sees Casino and Quantum before Skyfall on Friday.

    I do have a fondness for the R&B Hobbit as well. While the battle of 5 armies is laughable (it looks like a flea circus) the movie is very faithful to the spirit of the book. Love the singing in it!

    And Bubba Ho-Tep? Fantastic movie. Both Campbell and Davis are so fantastic. Its amazing how a movie with such an insane plot manages to be so touching and heartwrenching.

    Ha I just watched Mr. Deeds for the first time ever yesterday. Not bad I must say, but not as good as Sandler's other movies not even close.

    Ooh yes, fantastic modern cult classic that one is, in fact i even got to meet Bruce Campbell at one of my city's comic cons and got his autograph plus a chat with him which was awesome.

    Loved that since i was a kid and i can't wait for the new movie.

    What movies i saw in the last days even on Halloween:

    Rosemary's Baby on criterion blu-ray: MY GOD, this classic horror movie looks and sounds awesome in the magic of high def and Criterion did a fantastic job of bringing this to blu-ray. Polanski is a terrific director despite what he did in his private life as he's one of cinema's best artists, William Castle did a nice job of producing/co-writing and i always liked this since i was 7. Perfection horror at it's finest.

    The Howling: One of the best werewolf movies ever and one of the best 80s horror movies! such awesome special effects by Rob Bottin and has a new take on werewolf mythology as they can change during daylight, Joe Dante did awesome here. A fave of mine since i was a kid.

    Torture Garden: Superb horror anthogy from Amicus and one of their most underrated, Burgess Merideth stars here and i enjoyed this since i was 6 when i saw it on HBO.

    Leatherface Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3: Highly underrated sequel with some good gore, scares and Ken Foree with Viggo Morgensen in one of his earliest films, i enjoyed this since i was 8 when i saw it 2 times in theaters.

    Silent Hill 2 in 3D: Fair sequel to an underrated shocker.

    Ichi The Killer on blu-ray: If you can handle this sick, twisted, funny and politically incorrect Japanese horror dark comedy then you can see why it's a modern cult classic, it's based on a Japanese manga (read: Comic) and one of Takashi Miike's best movies. Not for the weak of heart but if you have a strong stomach and sense of humor, you can find why this movie is quite influential especially on Eli Roth's movies.

    Pete's Dragon on blu-ray: WOW, this movie looks and sounds awesome in high definition as Disney does nice on high definition stuff. Liked this since i was 4 and been a fave of mine, nice cast too and nice animation from Don Bluth.

    Wreck It Ralph: A dream for video game fans like myself and a nice animated story from Disney, i'm sure this will be a crowdpleaser for the video gamers out there.

    Silent Night Deadly Night: One of the most controversial horror movies ever due to the fact it has a killer Santa but it has been done before in EC horror comics, 1972's Tales from The Crypt and Christmas Evil and moms/dads didn't like this movie. it's a sleazy and gory cult classic about a boy who grew up in an orphanage after seeing his mom got raped by a man in a Santa outfit then saw the killer destroy his mom/pop leaving him and his little brother to be orphans then he grows up to be a department store worker and then dressed up as Santa as he snaps. Linnea Quigley is a fox in this movie and i enjoyed this since i was 5 as i knew it was NOT the REAL Santa as Santa would never kill anyone, come on i was just a kid you know.

    Casino Royale - Amazing movie. Just simply amazing. Daniel Craig premiers in what is one of the best Bond movies of all time.

    V for Vendetta - One of the best comic book movies ever. Top notch acting, an excellent score, and Hugo Weaving is just incredible as V. The pacing is well done, the spirit of the comic is in there, and it is also interesting to watch it the night before the election.

    Last night I watched Quantum of Solace. Not bad. I didn't like it as well as Casino Royale but it was nice to see a direct Bond sequel.

    I never saw the first 2, but was trying to hit up RedBox to watch them before Skyfall, but can't find them anywhere

    Just watched Goldfinger. Loved it. I haven't seen most of the Bond movies in years (probably during the TBS 13 days of Bond) so now that I'm finally watching them all again, I'm ranking them again. Thus far, I'm ranking them: 1. Goldfinger 2. Casino Royale 3. From Russia with Love 4. Quantum of Solace 5. Dr. No.

    V is an awesome movie as it with Watchmen are 2 excellent adaptations of 2 Alan Moore masterpieces and i've been a fan of the graphic novel for 15 years, i knew one day they do a movie.

    Wreck It Ralph: Yet again, one of the best animated movies of the year no doubt.

    They Live on blu-ray: This movie is awesome and looks/sounds fantastic in high def in a special edition, Shout Factory kicks a$$ now! One of John Carpenter's finest and one of my fave sci-fi movies ever since i saw this in theaters when it came out 3 times and you can tell it influenced Duke Nuke Em big time and was parodied in pop culture at times like that Bart vs. Space Mutants game to South Park.

    Little Nemo Adventures in Slumberland on blu-ray: Who else remembers this anime gem? One of my fave anime movies since i saw this in theaters at 11 as i loved that sweet Capcom game as i thought it was based on the video game then when the internet came i learned the film was made in 1989 in Japan and released in the US in 1992, this movie looks and sounds nice on Diskotech's first blu-ray and this movie is finally in it's Japanese language with English subtitles release as it was meant to be seen plus with the English dubbing, this one is quite imaginative and has excellent animation from TMS who did some episodes of Batman TAS/Tiny Toons/Animaniacs/Freakazoid/Superman TAS/Real Ghostbusters/Heathcliff, Akira, Golgo 13 The Professional and more.

    Quantum of Solace - It starts out a little rough, but once the movie hits the opera scene it gets really good. Not in my top 10 (would be my 11th), but it is far better than 90% of the action movies out on the market in the last 5 years and has a lot of great puns and one liners. I just wished they could have cut down on the action in the first half hour and added more development to Mr White and Quantum. Plus, I love the homage to Goldfinger.

    What Waits Below, an 80's horror thriller about a team of archeologists & soldiers running into a tribe of warrior albinos while exploring a cave system. It's very cheap & cheesy, yet strangely likeable. A good cast (Robert Powell, Richard Johnson, Lisa Blount and Timothy Bottoms) help bring a certain class to it.

    Saw Skyfall and it wasn't bad. I am happy to report that some fun has returned to the series, something it was sorely lacking since Daniel Craig took over as Bond.
