Queen of the Damned dvd, Doom (unrated) dvd, Silent Hill dvd. I fell asleep during parts of SH as it made no sense to me and was slow moving.

Was Queen of the Damned any good?
Did you read the books (the series) that Rice wrote?
Did the movie follow the book, for the most part?


You know what... I loved Doom. I don't know why. It wasn't like it was some academy award winning movie. But, I have this thing about movies with Duane Johnson (formerly known as The Rock). I like seeing all of his movies. I have a little crush on him, or something. So, I enjoyed it. And, Karl Urban was in the movie, and I love him too... since I saw him, as Cupid and Julius Caesar, on Xena and Hercules. He's a doll.
And, I was a HUGE fan of the original game, Doom. I played that game, every single day, when I was going to college. I spent HOURS upon HOURS playing it. I knew every damn map like the back of my hand.


Didn't see, and won't see, Silent Hill. I can't even stand the trailer of the movie on the preview channel on my cable for the pay-per-view. I hate horror (and I mean really bad horror... Doom isn't horror, in my opinion).

Lawless: I've read all of Anne Rice's novels & love them. The books are supreme compared to the movies. QOTD was ok. I liked the music more. Lots of missing background details ie: the Ancients. If you don't read Rice it would be confusing. Interview With A Vampire is a much better movie. I only discovered Doom 6 yrs ago. It's so much fun? So that's where I recognize Reaper from!! Xena! You triggered my memory! Karl Urban is hottt! I loved Cupid. I used to watch Xena every Sat. but I missed the season when Xena died. Gosh! Now Ima gonna have to catch up on those episodes. I'm gonna watch or try to play doom. I have friends over now so when I get a chance. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Lady In The Water (It's better if you know going in it's supposed to be like a fairytale bedtime story and not a horror movie. I watch thinking it was going to be a horror flick and was a bit confused, but knowing its a bedtime story clears a few things up) im still wondering why storys hair went from red to blonde though

An American Haunting (pretty good movie kinda creepy, I was the only one in the room that knew what happen was what was going to happen, very few movies suprise me)

Fight Club ( love this movie, it was the first movie I grabbed off the stack of dvds at teh house, popped it in in the car, now that a movie that suprised me, sort of, I kinda had an idea or what was goona happen)

Side note: I fell asleep during Silent Hill too. I kinda want to finished watching it one day. It was really slow though, Working third if a movie is slow, I'm out, I don't get enough sleep to be able to sleep through it.

Oh yeah we went and watched Charlottes Web too. Jamie made fun of me cause I cried, even though that creepy ass spider creeped me out. It looked and moved like a real frikin spider, they could have made it a little cuter or something.

The Prestige (Good movie. Really have to pay attention though.)
Eragon (Completely disreguard the book while watching this one.)
Lady In The Water (Strange, but good.)

There was a really weird one that I saw this past weekend but I can't remember the name of it for anything. It wasn't a bad movie though.

Lickety... I LOVE The Fifth Element. That's one of those movies that I tend to watch if I see it is on tv. LOVE IT!!! I still haven't added it to my collection... well, I did have it, but my ex got it, for some reason! And I loved Chris Tucker in the movie. His Ruby Rhod character was over the top, and I loved it. Then again, I'm just a fan of Chris'.

I also really liked The Last Samurai. It was slow in some parts, but it was a beautiful movie. It's one in my collection. I think that Tommy did a great job as Capt. Nathan Algren. His drunken exploits in the beginning were great. He just made me see a really drunk man, who wanted to just die.

Fifth Element was cool. The more I watch it the more I realize it could have been better as far as casting and dialogue go. But Luc Besson rules so anything he does is awesome. The first time I caught it I had to cover my ears when Tucker was screaming. Pissed me off so much.

Last Samurai is hella dope. I have read up on the Samurai culture for a while now. Cruise was really good in it.

Thanks guys! I'll give the Samurai another chance later on. I guess for Fifth Element I had to be in the mood for that. I liked Serenity a whole lot. Futuristic with great lines of comedy.

Still think Tucker is annoying though...

Well tell me something: Was Lei Loo (the 5th Element) a monster thing like the ones at the beginning and was killed and they regenerated the hand and it became her? How did it come about that it's this "perfect" specimen? Is she immortal or what. Just those questions from your knowledge. I'll try to look it up on a fan site or whatever. Also, why didn't those people Bruce Willis put in the fridge die?

From what I gathered, the 5th Element chick was the 'perfect being' with power that can combat this ominous evil thing that tries to smear Earth every so many centuries. How did it come about? Who knows. Never says how. The monster guys were just protecting her.

I guess she was in that case and would somehow regenerate or come back to life. She might be one of several members of the species these weird aliens use. She might be immortal. I dunno.

And it's the future, being put in the fridge doesn't kill you. If you can buy Chinese food from a flying boat outside your window I think we can let frozen people come back from the dead.

Good answer HECK! So with that theory no one should really die in the future then. Bummer!

Thanks for the insight. I still think it's a hokey movie though. Makes Star Wars seem "realistic".

A lot of moments where you gotta suspend disbelief. The were quick to get to the big chunks of the plot and not offer too much of an explantion as to how or why this crap works. Could have taken out parts of Tucker screaming like a woman (and making my ears bleed) and plugged a few plot holes instead, eh?

One thing I will say about Besson. The dude has produced a crap load of movies. A lot of foreign flicks... still, he's been a busy man over the years. I LOVED, La Femme Nikita. The original, French version, was amazing.

Well, I'm a bit miffed, right now. I got my movie, in the mail, from Blockbuster.com, and it wasn't what I ordered, though, I thought that it was correct. I ordered, "Underworld: Evolution" and it's what I did receive... and I put it in the dvd player, and pushed power. It loads up, and what do I see: extra options. So, I hit eject and look at the disc picture: Disc 2. I could watch some making of, and those extras. But, not the actual movie. They should have sent disc 1. *sigh* What a lovely f' up by the company.

Tell her to see the movie, "Mother-in-Law" because she's been like that.
She needs a TRUE slap of reality in my opinion!! And Damon will deliver it.

When the movie first came out I had a few people tell me it sucked so I never bothered to see it.

It wasn't until a friend of mine convinced me it was an awesome movie that I bought it and watched it and LOVED it. It's a good movie, I still can't get Jamie to sit through it though. I tell you he's worse than me about falling asleep during movies. If it's not a movie he picks out I can pretty much garentee that he's going to go to sleep no matter how good I tell him it is.

Fight Club is a damn good movie, and had an ending that made me go... "No f'n way!" I just didn't see that "twist" at all. I know that some people did... but, I just didn't. Maybe it's because I was just too damn fixated on Brad Pitt the entire time, or something.
