No GODFATHER PART II last night, couldn't make it to that screening. Def hittin' that up on Wednesday night though. I have to work a little bit this week but, otherwise I'm thinking it'll be chock full of movies time! This calls for multiple trips to the theater on things I've missed out on. Starting with tomorrow.......today?

I do enjoy watching the US OPEN in LPGA. Which has very little to do with golf I can assure you...

I think Natalie Gulbis and Blair O'Neal deserve our fandom as well.

Gulbis is actually a local girl, Sacramento represent.

I'm not familiar with this Blair O'Neal...

Was going to wait and catch Cinemark's Wednesday night screening of THE GODFATHER PART II, but I just might be able to make it to tomorrow night's first showing instead. I did entertain the notion of watching both PART I & II which they're doing a double-header of on Sunday and Wednesday but, nah I'll just settle for the 2nd half of it. Having to take in both back-to-back, would just be too much for my ass to handle in one seat at a movie theater. But I caught the first movie when they did it last year so, I'm all ready for the 2nd chapter of this storied cinematic trilogy.

2010: THE YEAR WE MAKE CONTACT - basically Brody from JAWS, the dad from HARRY AND THE HENDERSONS and that NBC guy from SEINFELD team up with some Russian cosmonauts on a mission to find out just WTF happened on that whacky space journey to Jupiter 9 years prior. In the grand tradition of 80's genre cinema like ROCKY IV and STAR TREK VI, it's entirely a Cold War parable and definitely a product of the time but something I never tire of. It's a very straightforward sequel, there's no real abstract mind-bending trip of Kubrick's to be found here. Still, it's a decent watch. Doesn't provide any hard answers as to the events of 2001 but they're about as close as they come. Whether you had questions that needed to be filled or you prefer it to be left up to your own interpretation, and perhaps that's as it should be, I would recommend checking this out. And who know? This director would go on to make a career out of Van Damme flicks...

I never really knew 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY ever had a sequel either until fairly recently, like...this year. I had probably come across this movie in passing before but didn't think anything of it. I had only seen Kubrick's stunning classic space voyage last year for the first time, this follow-up albeit a lesser film seems to have been forgotten and left adrift.

One of my favorite movie review shows(NowPlayingPodcast) just did a mini-Kubrick retrospective on this series so I thought it was about time I checked out 2010. Hearing their discussions/analyses/break-down dissections really makes me want to revisit 2001 again. Apparently there is so much I missed upon a first viewing! :o

Haven't heard that theme song in many years and I remember now how sad it is.

I guess I can understand that the game didn't please some of the core fanbase. I was saying in your other post below that it satisfied me despite being a very unusual SH game.

About eight years ago, I wrote a short film in which I used some locations, events and even some shots I remembered from this game. I adapted the story for my liking but my character does get locked in his apartment and can't have any contact with the outside world for some reason. It was just for fun but I never did anything with it.

YoshioKun13 at 08:15 AM Jun 18

That's cool Pat!

A shame you never got that off the ground or anything. I hear from the grapevine that the Stephen King-based movie 1408 is the most closest resembling an actual SH4 film, I'll have to check that one out. The previous SH games had of course been inspired by certain specific horror works, 4 is just all over the place in that regard and seems to be an amalgam of a bunch of things. REAR WINDOW, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, THE CELL, RINGU, EVENT HORIZON, the list goes on. It's a pretty, deranged & fucked up story.

Glad to see you're one of the fans along with myself who actually got what this game was going for haha. SH4 really is the ALIEN³ of the series, it got bagged on mercilessly at the time. By now though I think they've both gained a certain amount respect. In each case, we just didn't know how much worse.......it could get.

@XSsoCX - And for that 10 years since, pretty much everything that has come in and out of the SH franchise has been...crap. Which includes media outside the game world. Namely, the movies.

Pat Hatfreet
Pat Hatfreet at 11:07 AM Jun 18

I wouldn't say it's a shame because I never pushed for it to be made. It is sitting somewhere on my computer. Even worse, the script is only a first draft.

Yeah, you could say "1408" ressembles "SH4" in some points. One way or the other, definitely check it out, it's a good movie!

"SH4" is definitely an amalgam of very different things. The ghosts were the most unexpected villains for me but I dug it. They got on my nerves at some points because I didn't understand how to get rid of them until I realised I could pin them down with those swords.

Yeah, the series has gone progressively down the drain since then. I'm looking forward to the next great game!

Downpour is the one I was referring to. You are on a prison bus that crashes in that one.

But I do wish to snag a copy of the Japanese PS3 version on account of this wicked cover art

Pat Hatfreet at 11:05 PM Jun 17

I agree that "SH 4: The Room" was really unusual. I remember liking it though (haven't played since playing the first time in 2004 or 2005). There were enough spooky moments, creatures, characters and locations in it to leave me satisfied.

It's also clear that the series has not been the same since that game. I've played them all anyway ― Origins, Homecoming, Downpour ― but there was a lot left to be desired.

I think "Downpour" is really the worst to date. There is a handful of effective, scary moments but the rest is utter crap. The story is bad and I didn't give a shit. The developments of the story are so far and few between that they had to add those pointless side-story missions.

While we're talking about "The Room", I should say that you can enter that same appartment a one point during the game if you find it. I guess it was an homage to the last good game of the series. The door is chained from the inside but you can't open any doors (you enter through the window).

Back to "Downpour", I have to say that the in-game cinematics are mostly atrocious (expect the opening sequence and a few other maybe)! The ones in "SH:2" on PS2 we're 50 times better!

The sound effects were pretty good but I thought the voice acting was pretty weak. The music by Daniel Licht ("Dexter" composer) was pretty good too.

I know it's not encouraging, but you must know what to expect when it comes to "Downpour". Don't spend a fortune to get the game if you want to play it. $10 for a used copy is the maximum you should lay down for it.

Happy 25th Anniversary GHOSTBUSTERS II! I seem to keep going back and forth on this one, and I've got issues but it's never something I don't enjoy re-watching. No it's not the genius perfection the original movie was but hey, very few things are.....especially for sequels. Underrated?
YoshioKun13
YoshioKun13 at 10:50 PM Jun 16

Pretty much.

A shame they never followed up with a 3rd movie, except as a video game. Which I'm still trying to make my way through.

Having re-watched myself last year, I was on the floor laughing! It is not as spectacular as the original but still great fun hanging out with the guys :)

I saw it last year and you know what, it's the same movie again but not as funny. I never actually realized that because I held it to such high esteem as a kid. That said, there are still things about it I like such as Vigo the Carpathian, the pink slime, the Statue of Liberty walking around, the dancing toaster, and Peter MacNicol. I've come to terms with the fact that it's not a perfect movie but I enjoy it for what it is.

I was watching a video retrospective on John Woo's HARD TARGET earlier today. That's a fucking awesome movie. I remember seeing it in a theater when it came out, definitely have to check that one out again been a long time since I last saw it. would love to see Universal put out a release of the full 128min Workprint Cut, or at least Woo's 116min Director's Cut but I ain't holding my breath on that. I'll keep crossing my fingers though.

yeah unlikely to happen, but would def be cool... really really dig that flick. Great cheese, guitar solos and all, but just damn fun. Classic action flick

Well I fell asleep so I didn't actually get to watch 2010: THE YEAR WE MAKE CONTACT last night. I'll try and hit it up tonight, if it's good I'll definitely pick up the movie on Blu sometime. Along with 2001 of course...

I always wanted to get around to that. I haven't seen 2001 in so long either I barely remember it. That would be a cool double feature I think
