Got for Christmas:

Order of the Phoenix
Bourne Ultimatum
Rocky Balboa (Hey, I'm from Philly.  It's required by law or something.)
Matrix Revolutions
U.S. Marshals
DaVinci Code (WTF?  It's the thought that counts.)

Har de har, I reviewed U.S. Marshalls! Well, at least they paid me to see it. :)

I finally saw Aliens 3. Sucked. I'm tired of the cyber-punk future.

It looked like "Alien at Thunderdome."

Editing of the next Indiana Jones movie will probably be finished in a few weeks.

I don't have a nondisclosure anything.

Keep your expectations about Alien: Resurrection in check, too (although the aliens depicted therein are more true to the original in form than those seen in Aliens or Alien 3). Same with AvP. It is all very tired now.

Alien was a masterwork in its day, however, due to the novelty and shock of Giger's art and Ridley Scott's spooky direction. There are moments in that movie that are my favorite in cinema - such as when, as the crew explores the derelict ship, the camera tracks up to reveal the seated pilot. The combination of set and musical score attains a peak of otherworldliness that I don't think has been attained since.

Aliens is good (but doesn't hold a candle to the original) in a very different James Cameron kicks ass kind of way (although there are some severe continuity problems vis the original.) Be sure to see the extended version.

Anybody seen the movie "Once" about a couple of musicians? A friend recommended it.

Alien was a horror, Aliens a war film in space. The rest were just milking the cash cow.

Diane and I watched "We're No Angels" this evening. A bit late for the holidays, but a nice entertainment nevertheless.

Don't recall if this is the exact quote, but loved the line, "He already knows."
