Anchorman WAS bad. It's the same old stuff I've been laughing at for years and years. I need something fresh. Something....delicious in my comedies.

Where, pray tell, have you seen a battle between television personalities with axes?

I'm referring to the style of the comedy. Not specific scenes. It was just all expected. Whatever. Nevermind, Anchorman was GGRRREEEAAAT

Just teasing. Anchorman couldn't carry Napolean Dynamite's jock with a forklift.

I hated Anchorman, only funny part was the reference to scotch, which has been quoted many, uncountable times. Dodgeball was hilarious, but haven't seen ND, maby when it comes out on DVD.

Collateral...

I saw Collateral today. It was the second best movie of the summer, behind Spiderman 2, in my opinion. Cinematographically, Collateral is one of the best shot movies I have ever seen. It is a symphony of exotic musics, terrific visuals, and a great action story...


FINAL SUMMER MOVIE SEASON REPORT CARD
Spiderman 2 A+
Collateral A+

The Bourne Supremacy A
Napolean Dynamite B+
I, Robot B
Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story B

The Village B-
King Arthur B-
Troy B-
The Terminal B-

Hero C-


I never saw: Anchorman, The Manchurian Candidate, Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, Fahrenheit 9/11, or Catwoman.

Yes, Collateral is also my #2 movie of the summer, and I loved the shots from straight-down, right on top of the taxi. Did they film that from a helicopter, or what?

Cinematography

There were just so many pristine scenes of the city at night. Cities at night are probably my favorite things to look at, and the director of Collateral (Michael Mann) does a great job. He incorporates the city lights and light from the moon in contrast with reflections on windows and the darkness of the sky and street in a flowing exhibition of beautiful visuals.

What is it with Tom Cruise and subways though?

Anyone seen Risky Business?

Yes, loved the title, hated the movie. But I got what you meant about the subway, though

Early release

You know, if they would have released Collateral earlier, then none of this Catwoman mess would have even happened...

What? Catwoman would have still been made no matter when Collateral was released. I loved those cityscape shots in Collateral, some of the best I've seen since Akira, and absolutely lovely. I thought the film was good until that Fever club scene, and then I thought it kicked my ass seven ways sideways. That scene hypnotized me with the pounding the music, visceral imagery, and Vincent's general ass-kicking attitude. I'm counting down the days until the DVD.

that man did nothing but live up to his name and surpass his reputation.

an absolutely brilliant film.

No, I realize that, but there was no reason for that movie to open at #2. With Collateral out, and S2 raking in the same amount, it would have been #4.

I did like Vincent's character, but the one thing that kept Collateral under Spiderman 2 in my book is that Vincent seemed inVINCEable. He was just way too proficient with the gun, like in the club scene. It just seemed a little too reminiscent of Bourne and The Transporter with the "special forces, green beret" thing popping up once again.

The one who lived up to his name was Max from Collateral. He took it to the MAX...eventually.

I'm not a big Jet Li fan, in fact, Hero is the only movie of his that I've liked. I'm more of a Bruce Lee kinda guy.
