    Watched The Muppets Christmas Carol on dvd. LOVE Christmas movies and LOVE the Muppets!!
    In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
    Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
    Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
    In the bleak midwinter, long ago...
    ...a stable place sufficed.

    What can I give Him, poor as I am?
    If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
    If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
    Yet what can I give Him?....[I can] give my heart.

    Nightmare Before Xmas - it gets better with every viewing.
    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.

    This weekend finished out Bond-vember 2012. We finished by watching The World is Not Enough and Die Another Day, both Bond films that I saw in theatres when they were released. How did they hold up?

    The World is Not Enough is quite a good Bond film: Good opening scene, Elektra and Renard are both excellent Bond villains, Robbie Coltrane returning is a welcome surprise, there is a great final appearance by Q, the submarine sequence is quite good, and I'm always caught off guard by how cruel Bond can be in this installment. Pierce really did something different in this installment.

    Unfortunately, there is one glaring negative part of this movie: Denise Richards. Every line that comes out of her mouth just makes me cringe and her character just comes across as obnoxious rather than confident and talented.

    Die Another Day is a Bond film I had only seen once prior to this reviewing. I remember being pretty so-so on it when it came out, mostly because I loved the darker tone the movie began and was disappointed as that tone changed. In the years since the movie came out, I know many folks have expressed some extreme dislike for the film.

    Watching it, I'm still impressed by the opening of the film, love the credits sequence, and find that I like it more than I remembered. I love Miranda Frost. Zao and Graves aren't bad villians, either. The overall plot is quite good, but the execution of it was slightly weak. Since Bond nearly always has hi-tech gadgets, the invisible car didn't bother me too much. The over use of CGI, however, is quite glaring and takes away from the "slightly grounded in reality" feel of most Bond films and stunts.

    1.Goldeneye 2.You Only Live Twice 3.Goldfinger 4.Skyfall 5.Casino Royale 6. Licence to Kill 7. Moonraker 8.From Russia with Love 9.On Her Majesty's Secret Service 10. The World is Not Enough 11. Live and Let Die 12.The Spy who Loved Me 13. The Living Daylights 14.The Man with the Golden Gun 15. A View to a Kill 16.Diamonds are Forever 17. Tomorrow Never Dies 18. Octopussy 19.Quantum of Solace 20.Thunderball 21.Dr. No. 22. Die Another Day 23. For Your Eyes Only

    Here's my list of the Bond films in my order of preference.

    Killing Them Softly

    I went in knowing nothing about this movie. The trailers seem vague and the reviews are beyond positive (right now).

    I liked this movie and get the feeling I'll like it more the as I think about it the next couple of days. That being said, it's going to get a lot of criticism as well. The movie is very artsy in the filming, style, story telling, and what the overall theme.

    It's a crime story about robbing a mafia card game and the consequences of it. However, it focuses on the more tedious elements other movies and television shows avoid, such as how much a hit costs and the bureaucratic system of the mafia. It's less of a lifestyle and more of a business.

    Behind our crime story is the constant flashback of Bush bailing out Wallstreet and the bankers, meanwhile we try to follow extremely low working class East coast criminals and gangsters and how the economics all come full circle at the end of the day.

    A lot of the dialog sometimes seems self indulgent and without any purpose to the actual plot, then picks up the next scene.

    Brad Pitt steals the show here, great character and solid performance. It's actually a really good cast, 99% male with Richard Jenkins, Gandolfini, and Ray Liotta, but not much screen time for any one guy other than Pitt.

    I'd risk seeing it. I don't know if you'll like it. Some will, but it's a very original and ambitious crime story. Don't expect some shoot em out action movie, although it is extremely violent, but it's about the story all the way down to the very last line in the movie. It's not like Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy or Lincoln, which I felt we're a chore. It's probably closer to Drive, which many people did not connect with.

    I'll say this, whether you like it or not, the writer/director put a ton of thought behind every detail in this movie, I don't think everyone will appreciate it though.

    Awesome movie Kain, did you saw that when it first came out in theaters during the Halloween/thanksgiving season? i did about 4 times when i was 12 and loved it, your so right it is a masterpiece of animation that gets better with every viewing plus good imagination too.

    Home Alone 2 on blu-ray: A worthy followup to a 90s Christmas classic and from the same makers too with the same stars plus Tim Curry, Maggie Smith and Rob Schneider co-star in this sequel, i still remembered seeing this 4 times in theaters when it came out and got a Talkboy tape-recorder, remember those?

    Ninja Scroll on blu-ray: Awesome fantasy/action animated movie that is definitely NOT family viewing but definitely a guy's animated movie, loaded with nonstop action, amazing animated battle sequences, sex, gore and a complex story with imagination abound, it's always been one of my fave animated movies since i was 15 and it looks/sounds nice in high def.

    The Collection: Very nice sequel to a now cult fave horror movie which i enjoyed and this sequel nearly surpasses the original with more booby traps and pain than ever, sort of like Pieces meets Home Alone, a third movie would be nice.

    Die Hard 1 & 2 on blu-ray: The first movie is awesome stuff and a perfect holiday action movie for everyone, the second is quite underrated even if it is a semi-rehash but still fine holiday viewing while the third movie is an improvement with being more of a summer movie with a more fresh sequel approach. I saw both of these movies 5 times in theaters when i was a kid and McClane is one of my heroes.

    Brazil Director's Cut on Criterion blu-ray: I have the first blu-ray which is the US theatrical cut and this is the Director's Cut with never before seen footage and now have the complete experience, i admired this movie for 17 years since junior high when i rented it as it's one of my fave sci-fi, fantasy and comedy movies and Christmas movies as it is a Xmas movie too. Terry Gilliam's masterpiece never looks and sounds this great in high def before.

    My local movie theater is playing the Lord of the Rings Trilogy this saturday. I want to go, but not sure I can handle 10+ hours sitting in a movie theater.

    Also, they are showing Home Alone tonight, so might go to that

    No, I have never seen it in theaters. I was 10 when it came out and my mom would not let us see it because she thought it looked too horrific for kids. It was not until she watched it first when it came out on VHS that she let us watch it.

    I did not even know Ninja Scroll was coming to BD, but I haven't even watched my DVD since the day I bought it 10 years ago, so I don't think I will pick it up.

    I remember going to see Nightmare Before Christmas in the theater both when it came out (I was probably in 4th grade) and when it was first released in 3D. I've owned the soundtrack on cassette and CD as well as pretty much buying the movie whenever it gets released.

    Just found out they are going to be playing National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation on December 19th, so will probably hit that up as well.

    Hitchcock

    This covers Alfred Hitchcock's time while making Psycho and his relationship with his wife. It's pretty damn entertaining. Anthony Hopkins is very fun to watch as Hitchcock. He's combination of funny, creepy, and charming all at once. Helen Mirren plays his wife, while Scarlet Johannson and Jessica Biel play his leading ladies on screen.

    There's another Hitchcock movie playing on HBO right now that is sort of a sequel to this timeline wise that covers Birds and his relationship with that leading lady. Both films touch upon his obsession with his leading ladies, but in different tones. The Anthony Hopkins one is more charming, while the other is a bit more creepy.

    I'd recommend seeing it, not a perfect movie, but brilliant performances and it makes me want to watch Psycho.

    We went to see Lincoln tonight.

    Starts out slow and is plodding in places, but there are definitely extended flashes of brilliance and it's touching in places.

    No question Daniel Day Lewis will get an Oscar nomination, but I think Tommy Lee Jones will win for Best Supporting Actor. As for Speilberg...well...come on...

    The Unnameable 1 and 2 as part of the comic book shop's regular movie night. Elf Man on dvd. This was a good family movie and if you are a fan of Wee Man or Jeffrey Combs (yes that Jeffrey Combs in a family film I was shocked but I like the guy so I watched) you'll like it.
    Rob Kerr- 1979-2006. I will always love you.

    Jingle All The Way Director's Cut version on blu-ray: The blu has both versions and this version is quite interesting to see what was missing from the theatrical cut, still a fun movie and one of my favorite holiday films.

    Scrooge (1970): One of the best adaptations of the classic story, loved this since i was 4 when i saw it on TV.

    Black Christmas (1974) on blu-ray: One of my fave psychological horror movies since i was a kid, stars John Saxton and Margot Kidder plus directed by Bob Clarke of Christmas Story fame as it's a John Carpenter/Alfred Hitchcock-esque shocker and a cult classic.

    Batman Returns on blu-ray: Loved this since i saw it 5 times in theaters at age 11 and been a perfect holiday viewing movie, how can a guy not resist Michelle Pfeifer in that skintight outfit? i was crazy about her when i was a kid and Danny Devito was superb as Penguin, this with the first movie lead to Batman TAS.

    Oliver and Company: Who remembers this movie? a disney classic for 80s kids like myself with a nice soundtrack by Billy Joel and Huey Lewis with good animation. I saw this in second grade about 4 times in theaters and loved it, i even had some of the merchandise including my first CD which i still own for the Joel and Lewis music, one of my favorite Disney animated movies.

    Claymation Christmas Special: One of the most unique xmas specials ever and Will Vinton is a genius, i still remembered in first grade when this came out i had to tape it and i always admired Will Vinton's Claymation since Return to Oz.

    I finally got a chance to watch The Incredibles the other day (I know, I know). All the good things I've heard about it over the years were absolutely true; it's a wonderful film.

    I think I'm going to watch it again tonight.

    The Muppets Christmas Carol - I picked up the BD today and this was probably the third time I have ever seen this movie, and it is really good. It isn't my favorite adaptation, but it is definitely an excellent and unique one.

    I remember the cinema being jam packed for HA2.......yes , it ripped off the 1st one to a large degree but why change a successful formula

    Piedone a Hong Kong aka Bud Spencer goes to the East 4/6

    Usually I find Spencer/Hill films tedious but this one's all right although Nancy Sit was wasted , just a short cameo not even a decent role.

    BR and NLs X-mas Vacation are pretty good films , I agree......BR just didn't live up quite hypewise to B89.

    Saw Skyfall with my dad last week (it was a late birthday treat for him). Liked the little twist at the end, though. This was one Bond movie that was very unpredictable.
