    Maybe I'll just watch a few YouTube clips of it instead.

    I would say that you have to be in the right mood for The Room, and it's much, much better on second screenings or with people who know the movie well.

    There are so many stupid things you won't even notice until the second or third time through.

    Bad movies are best enjoyed with lots of friends, and lots of chatting about why it's so bad.

    So my wife, myself, and two of our friends watched it together, and throughout the film we were pretty much giving it the MST3K treatment. Still wasn't enough to salvage the film for me. One friend had always planned to leave after the "You are tearing me apart, Lisa!" line, which can be seen around the 4:00 mark in the video Craig linked.

    Really, you can just watch the 8 minute video and get all the possible enjoyment you can find in the movie there. The rest is just poorly filmed and acted softcore porn, guys throwing a football back and forth, random visits from Lisa's mom that last all of one minute before she leaves again (okay, that is kind of funny), and a stupid bitch whining about getting what she wants.

    I'm not game enough to watch the whole movie. I think the eight minute YouTube clip is enough for me.

    "YOU ARE TEARING ME APART, LISA!"

    "oh hi mark"

    Watched the film Storks this weekend. It was actually rather cute and better than I expected.

    Just watch Despicable Me 2. I must say the Minions were much better and entertaining in this one. Also love Gru in this film. I might watch The Minion movie.

    Went and saw The Dark Tower this weekend. It was pretty good, though I have not read the books and thus was not disappointed with the way some things went, the way my wife was. She still thought is was a good movie, but not the Gunslinger movie the fans deserve. The action sequences were well done overall, there was only a little bit of cheese, a decent amount of humor to offset some of the darker parts, and I think a lot of little bits that fans of the series would probably pick up or recognize that the uninformed viewer such as myself would miss. I noticed some things, as I am aware of King's works, even if I haven't read any of them, but there were a lot of things my wife saw that I didn't.

    My friend lent me an anime movie on DVD the other day, which my partner and I plan to watch sometime this weekend. It's called "Your Name".

    I've heard it's an amazing film, so I look forward to it.

    My partner and I watched Your Name on DVD this past Saturday night.

    It starts off quite confusing, and it feels like an anime TV show in a movie (complete with an intro sequence and a montage or two), but it's an absolutely beautifully animated film with an emotionally heavy story.

    If you like anime, then I highly recommend you check this one out.

    Rented the live action Ghost in the Shell movie. It was okay. The effects were really good and the cybernetic vision of the future was really well done. The plot was rather straightforward, which unfortunately I think ill serves the GitS pedigree, as the anime plots tend to be a lot more convoluted. Ultimately it was a mash up of the original GitS movie and the second season of the television series.

    The whitewashing of the Major was explained away in the movie, close to the way I predicted they would do. The other characters of Section 9 really didn't get a chance to do much, only two (other than Batou and Aramaki, who are more central characters) were even named, so that was also a bit of a missed opportunity.

    Overall, an okay movie, but I think the anime options are better.

    I just realized I haven't watched a movie in something like three months. YouTube has consumed me.

    Saw the live action Beauty and the Beast the other day. If you like the animated film, you'll probably like this as it is almost exactly the same, just with a few twists here and there and a few more songs. The CGI was really well done for the most part and I enjoyed the film as a whole.
