Æon Flux

Posted by knobbygirl

I watched the original animated Æon Flux on MTV, but I have no idea how closely the film followed the original, because I don't believe I ever saw a single episode while sober.

Charlize Theron is too pretty to be Æon Flux. Julia Roberts is homely enough, but hardly the action star type. Angelina maybe? I'm wracking my brain to think of who could have been a better Æon Flux, but I'm coming up blank, so I guess Charlize was okay.

Hot Tub Time Machine

Posted by knobbygirl

Crispin Glover makes ALL movies better...but especially movies about time travel.

Seriously, if I had realized that Crispin Glover was in Hot Tub Time Machine, chances are I would have seen it a lot sooner.

Iron Man 2

Posted by knobbygirl

Why does Iron Man have his own cheerleaders?!? If he's the Hugh Hefner of Superheroes, shouldn't he have strippers?

I was SO excited that they replaced Terence Howard with Don Cheadle, but when it came down to it, I don't know if Don Cheadle was right for the role either. I can't think of someone who would have been better though - so I think it is the role itself that's problematic.

Iron Man

Posted by knobbygirl

I want to see The Avengers. I want to see it in 3D. But my husband doesn't want to go see it until he he sees all the films leading up to it, so we're in a mad dash to see them all while The Avengers is still in the theaters. So here we go...

I don't know a lot about Iron Man, other than the Black Sabbath song. I asked my husband about him and he said that Iron Man is like the Hugh Hefner of Superheroes. I guess that explains why he has a stripper pole in his private jet.

Piranha (2010)

Posted by knobbygirl

If I had actually watched Piranha in 3D, I would have been traumatized for life.

It's not like I'm a pussy or something...as far as movies go, I am the complete opposite of a pussy. (Wait - is the opposite of a pussy...a dick? Am I a movie dick???) Anyway,Piranha makes Saw look like Romper Room. But that's not the traumatizing part. If you've seen this movie, you know EXACTLY which scene I'm talking about. If you haven't seen it, maybe I won't ruin it for you. Then again, maybe I will...because I AM kind of a dick.

Frankenhood

I had high hopes for this film when it started out with Charlie Murphy as a mad scientist named "Franklin", but they all went out the window when he got electrocuted 10 minutes into the film.
