Went and saw Land of the Lost tonight. It was everything I'd hoped it would be (hot-damn!!!! those new Sleestak are sooooooooo much tastier than the originals), and it wasn't anything I hoped it wouldn't be (a movie with an actual plot, taking itself seriously, doing much to damage the sanctity of the pure cheese-factor of the original series). I only wish we could have seen more of the mating .... time of the sleestak and that Marshall had kept his promise at the motel regarding Chaka. ;)

It's awesome, and amazingly silly. Enjoy!

Well, that's annoying. I got a copy of Invelos' DVD Profiler, so I could track all my DVD library info, and potentially download the list to my PDA phone, so I wouldn't double-buy or lose track of movies that had been loaned to friends/family.

Yet, as I'm going through, trying to tag and highlight certain discs for certain (suit) actors, I realized that my 2 disc copy of Pan's Labyrinth never got added to the list, nor is it in the stacks with my other movies. Huh. Looks like my solutions came too late to salvage that 2 disc set. Tragic. Well, that's now top of my list to replace.

Minotaurs, centaurs, satyrs, fauns.... FAR too tasty for words. And the story is definitely right up there as well. The dialog was probably a little more snarky than C.S. Lewis originally wrote it (I haven't reread the books in quite some time) but otherwise, it was a very wonderful ride.

And mousie? You DEFINITELY need to see it.

But now that I've seen both Ocean's 11 and 12, I love it even more!

These are truly excellent romp flicks, of the Old Skool variety. So much comedy mixed into such a silly plot. And every time the guys all get together it's like what you hear at any average guys party when all the macho crap is done away with. It's just so damn fun. I recommend them both highly, and now I must return to berating myself for not having seen either one in the theatres.
