      Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome. Campy good fun.
      Night Of The Comet. Could watch any time.
      Piranha 3D. Other then the hokey "3D effects", not bad.
      The original Night Of The Demons. A favorite of mine.

      And now:

      The Fighter storyline was good, and made all-the-better in that it is based on real events. The minor roles (the family of the boxer) did an absolutely fantastic job in portraying the working class poor of the time. I thought Amy Adams makes for a good Boston Irish tough-as-nails character and Christian Bale did a good job at playing the sometimes-oblivious borderline ridiculous drug addict. I wish the preview told us more about his being what Christian's character was rather than a focus on Marky Mark being a boxer. Speaking of whom, I feel the lead role should have gone to someone else because Mark just didn't have that believable character. Don't know if that's his fault or the script's. Overall rating 3.85 of 5.

      The King's Speech, much like The Fighter, is based on real events. The speech therapist role was played very well in the level of dedication portrayed to really cure the king of his speech impediment. I'm not an expert on working with speech disabilities so I don't know whether a cure is really possible, especially given the time when this was taking place (WWII-era), but I came away with the impression that the aids used helped the king only for the one particular big moment speech. I'd like to believe that from then on, the king didn't have problems speaking but that's not how it was shown in the movie (no scenes of successive speeches going well). Colin Firth made for a good king in the way he carried himself, but some of the storyline was presented to us in pieces. We don't know much about the queen's relationship with the king in private matters, but we do know about his relationship with his daughters. I don't know the history of England and how royalty works, but I do know that Firth's performance fits well into the "king" paradigm I have in my head; closed-off private person who insists on everything be his way and won't come to terms with problems that afflict the common man. My one disappointment with it is I wish the queen's character was shown as having a greater influence on the king going for speech therapy. I find it hard to believe she just said you should go and off he went. Overall rating 4.01 of 5.

      Biutiful is about a man in his 40s who lived a wild partier lifestyle coming to terms with a terminal disease diagnosis and righting the wrongs in his life before time runs out. While that sounds like a movie version of My Name is Earl... I assure it's not. This is one of those dark grim movies that makes you consider your life on the planet, what you'd like to have done differently, and why it is you haven't started living life differently yet. While the storyline is about how he (Bardem's character) struggles with his ex-wife, an underground not-quite-legal business, immigration, troublesome kids, and his own personal demons... it is really about the beauty of everyday experience and how precious time on earth is. The film is visually stunning... hell, it's downright intense. I don't know off the top of my head if it has been nominated for anything awards-wise, but I'll tell you it's one of the most mind-tripping movies you'll see this year. The other one is Sucker Punch, but that is not out yet so I can't say how good that is, yet. Overall rating 5 of 5

      I guess it's alright if you like dialogue.
