I just saw the best just sit back and laugh no brainer: Legally Blonde 2 :D

Cube: that takes the prize for the movie that had the best intentions, but blew it with the worst acting :(.  Could have been a better movie.

Arrgh! I just saw Underworld. Ok, the movie was good, a bit loud a some points, but good. And the heroine wears skintight black latex throughout most of the film. Always a plus.

Then there's the climactic fight in the last two minutes of the film. I won't tell you who, in case you want to see it, BUT, I must say to hollywood in general: If you plan to decapitate someone in a film, do it properly! They DON'T get up and turn around or look puzzled. They fall down and die with a slight "squish".

I had this same problem with Highlander. The first and only good one. He cuts through the guys head and he turns around and waggles his tounge at him before TRYING TO NOD and having his head fall off. Decapitated people DON'T NOD!!! Fall down. Little squishy. That's all.

Anyhow, Underworld, good movie, consider renting it if you're short on cash or not real big into the "movie theater" experience.

Underworld has been highly hailed by White Wolf and World of Darkness fans (Like me!) for it's modern representation of vampires and werewolves.

And for your information, after a decapitation, the muscles and flesh in the neck collapse into the neck cavity, making for a truly "squishy" experience.

Best Movie made under a cloud of legal disputes:  Hollow Man
  There was a representative on the set of the movie from The Wells estate at all times to make sure no one said "Invisible Man".

I will have to see Underworld to see if it gets to be the Best Movie made under the cloud of a legal dispute.

Childish movies for childish Nightmares.  

The Movie most likely to give you Nightmares: Se7en (Seven).  It is the only movie that left people stunned and babbling in their seats while the credits rolled.  People were crying and staring at the screen in disbelief.  I could not believe what I saw on the way out of the theatre. People were signing themselves. Really. You need to see it.  


Director: David Fincher  
Writer: Andrew Kevin Walker  
Starring: Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kevin Spacey, John Cassini, Bob Mack, Peter Crombie, R. Lee Ermey, Richard Portnow, Daniel Zacapa, Andy Walker, Mark Boone Junior, Dominique Jennings
