Back in 2005, I wrote about Batman Begins, which truly blew me away. I left believing that I could be Batman. Ever since seeing the trailer for The Dark Knight a couple of months ago, I’ve been waiting to see the next installation in the series. Finally made it out Friday night. A week since […]

I watched two outstanding movies today: Hotel Rwanda and Psycho. Of the two, Hotel Rwanda had a far greater impact on me. I was blinking back tears at the end–I think the part of the story that really got to me was that it really happened. I can understand why it was nominated for so […]

I saw Snakes on a Plane Saturday night. The movie was much better produced than expected, but what made the movie was the audience participation in the theater. There were some huge jumps in why things were happening in the movie (don’t think about it too much). It was also fun to see the movie […]

Saw Talladega Nights Friday at the Starlite Drive In. Okay racecar movie (not as funny as I had hoped for a Will Ferrell Movie), but a fun one to see at the drive in, since it’s about racing.

Once again, I’m planning to go to the Starlite Drive-In this Friday night. It’s a fun way to see a movie on the cheap and is a great experience. Each person is $4. This week: Monster House. Show times are 8:45 and 10:20, so I’m thinking that we’ll leave around 9:15 and catch the 10:20 […]

Saw Cars at the Starlite Drive In tonight. Unfortunately, we missed the 9:00 showing (it filled up before we got in), but we came back for the 11 showing. Cars was a well done movie (both the story and technically). Seeing it in the 50s decor of the theater added to the movie experience. We […]

Good quote from Mr. Banks in Mary Poppins.  One of my largest frustrations is when someone has all the information available to them to make an informed decision, but chooses to not even look at the information, and instead makes a silly and uninformed decision.  Alternate expression: “I’ve got my mind all made up, I […]

Recently, I’ve seen two outstanding movies. Last weekend, I saw V for Vendetta. It was a very well done movie, and it’s probably my favorite so far for 2006. It had excellent artistic work–I especially liked the lighting design on V. It almost gave his mask emotions. Tonight, I saw The Count of Monte Cristo. […]

I just got back from an evening of fun. Went up to Adventure Park USA near Frederick, MD with some friends from The Gathering. On the way back, some of us decided to make a detour to a theater and catch a showing of Batman Begins. The movie was excellent. In fact, I’d have to […]
