It was pretty smart of the author to do this. SHe never lost reader. They would begin the first book when they were younger and as they made it through each book, i am sure they got older too.

The first book had that "dark" feel to it as well, its the movies that made that progression. my perspective when reading the books, the real stuff started right when the chamber of secrets came out just because of the forewarning of the hunt for the horcruxes and such, not that i knew what they were, it's just I felt the 2nd book left readers with this ominous secret we wanted to find out.

btw my work called so i will be working tonight and wont be watching with my friends, and i am now in a pissy mood.

Ha I remember the Chamber of Secrets freaked me out. I was just a kid and the movie actually scared my ass off (especially the Basilisk).

Just got back from watching HP and wow, what a movie. It helped that the audience was great as well. At one point someone yelled out "lumos" and shined a pocket laser at the screen, and everyone erupted in laughter.

Agree about the crowd. Ours was awesome last night. Almost everyone stayed for the closing credits and a round of applause started whenever a popular actor's name appeared on screen (Alan Rickman obviously got the most cheering).

I am the only one that didn't care for it I think. 6.5/10... better than part 1 though.

LA Confidential 9/10

Captain America: The First Avenger

the excellent casting choices make this the best marvel film since Iron Man 1...Chris Evans nails Steve Rogers and Weaving is great as Red Skull (although i wish he had more time in the film)...the supporting cast is stellar
this is NOT an "America Fuck Ya" film...it's a story about the little guy who finally gets a chance to help...Evans does an amazing job of making you care about Rogers' plight during the 1st half of this film...the training (and particularly the grenade) scenes really bring to light who this character is
there are lots of great battle scenes but there is also lots of good humour thruout the film..had a nice Rocketeer/Raiders feel to it
you don't have to be a comic book geek to enjoy this film but if you do know some of the history of these characters, you'll enjoy some little tidbits thrown your way (first showing of Arnim Zola's face is a perfect example)

highly recommend this film...hell of a lot of fun to watch...8/10

oh and Stan's cameo is hilarious (as usual)
and the Avengers teaser had people cheering in their seats...can't frakkin wait !!

I went to see Herzog's documentary, Cave of Forgotten Dreams last week. It was my first experience with the new 3-D technology (no I did not see Avatar). It was a bit of a strain on the eyes, but it served a very useful purpose in showing how these earliest of cave paintings from 25-35 thousand years ago made use of the formations on the walls. The paintings themselves have something of a 3-D effect, with the texture and contours of the stone giving the images of animals a lifelike sort of volume and heft.

It was a great way to spend the hottest day of the year. Very much like being in a cave. And it was particularly cool being in this particular cave where time has been frozen in some respects. It was quite breathtaking to to see such representations with stylistic flair and such a communicative sense, from so long ago. I love archaeology so this film succeeded easily for me. Herzog's knack for filling out his subject matter just took it over the top.

Herzog did the documentary on that Grizzly Bear guy too. Thought it was awesome.

Yeah - that was pretty cool. He's done a ton of documentaries. One of my favourites is La Soufrière, about an abandoned Guadaloupe prior to a volcanic eruption that is predicted, and then never happens. Only Herzog can make so much out of so little - both the emptiness of the abandoned place, and the event that fails to take place.

I've watched Captain America and Green Lantern today.Captain America was like Thor,a good entertaiing movie but isn't like Batman Dark Knight.Hugo Weaving was perfect as Red Skull,he's the best artist to play the villain characters Green Lantern was sorry to say but really bad

Captain America : 8/10
Green Lantern: 5/10

I agree, Captain America was great, and I had my doubts that chris evans would pull it off.
He ussually plays the cocky character.
Loved the ending too, bringing him back to present day.
8/10
Not as good as Thor like my wife said, but a good film.

Saw Limitless last night.

I have always been interested in the way we use only part of our brains vs. using 100%, so I liked the movie concept. Fun watch, I liked the way they filmed it. Cooper was good for the role.

8/10
