  1. K-Mart's biggest problem is they don't seem to care. It's a shame they have to take Sears with them when they go.

     

     

    Sears owns Kmart ....You make it sound like its the other way around

     

     

     

    Actually it IS the other way around , they just decided to use the name Sears Holdings :

     

    Kmart, sometimes styled as "K-Mart," is a chain of discount stores headquartered in the United States. The chain acquired Sears in 2005, forming a new corporation under the name Sears Holdings Corporation

  2. My 4th grade teacher was selling some old comics for 10 cents a piece , so I bought Avengers #195 & #196 (First app./origin of The Taskmaster) .... of course I was hooked.

  3. I saw it today & really dont understand all the venom its getting from critics.

     

    I will say that the dialogue is pretty bad , it IS filled w/ cliche characters/situations , but I still enjoyed it for what it is . I liked it better than ID4 and Discrict 9.

  4. Has anyone else watched this yet ? It is an homage to '70s blaxploitation/kung fu films . Michael Jai White (Spawn,The Dark Knight) wrote & stars in it & does possibly his best acting I've seen from him yet. Any fans of that genre looking for a laugh should check it out .

  5. From Aintitcoolnews :

     

    One of my favorite movie stars, Brittany Murphy, passed away Sunday morning of a heart attack at age 32.

     

    While still a teenager, she served as a memorable component in one of my favorite movies, Amy Heckerling’s “Clueless.”

     

    She then went on to greater fame and success in a variety of big-screen starring roles, notably the sanatorium inmate Elisabeth in the 2001 smash “Don’t Say A Word” and the emerging romantic interest Alex in the 2002 blockbuster "8 Mile."

     

    She was also Shellie in 2005's "Sin City."

     

    She worked constantly, and will be seen among Sylvester Stallone's all-star cast next summer in "The Expendables."

     

    She was an amazing-looking actress who got plenty of work with just her voice, including roles in "Futurama," "Pepper Ann" and "Happy Feet."

     

    I loved that as her stock in Hollywood began to rise at the start of this decade she never abandoned her supporting role as Luanne Platter in the brilliant Mike Judge/Greg Daniels animated collaboration “King of the Hill.” She was wonderful in that too.

     

    Her other credits included "Drop Dead Gorgeous," "Girl, Interrupted," "Sidewalks of New York," "Summer Catch," "Riding in Cars With Boys," "Spun," "Just Married," "Uptown Girls," "The Groomsman," and "Love and Other Disasters."

  6. Finally got around to seeing this : AMAZING MOVIE !!!!!

     

    Amazing that someone would actually cast that dullard as Duke !

     

    Amazing-ly atrocious acting !

     

    Amazing that they were able to cram just about EVERY possible movie cliche into a nearly two hour film !

     

    Amazing that the director thought that cheesy flashbacks can double as character development !

     

    Amazing that I was dumb enough to believe that it would be any different !

     

    So amazing that I had to go see Inglorious Basterds immediately after witnessing this POS to help me remember what truly talented filmmaking can accomplish .

  7. I'll probably see it Sunday morning .

     

    I was going to wait til the DVD , but some of these positive reviews have me damn curious about it now . My prediction for opening weekend is around $26,000,000.

     

    Edit: I just noticed that my local drive-in is gonna have a G.I. Joe & Transformers 2 (which I havent seen either) double feature , so I might check that out Fri. or Sat. night instead .

  8. Harry Knowles has lost some credibility with me over the years with some of the crappy movies that he has given positive reviews to . This one from Latinoreview.com has me a little bit more optimistic about this film :

     

    Apparently there was a screening in Kansas City for the upcoming Stephen Sommers' "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" and LatinoReview reader 'P Ben' got a chance to check it and sent us his thoughts on the film. As much as you might to hate the film from its TV Spots and Trailer and say its going to bomb like "Dragaonball Z" and "Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li," it seems that film is not as bad as you might think it is.

     

    I can see the smile on El Mayimbe's face now and getting a Skype call later today just to tell me "I Told You".

     

    Below is what 'P Ben' tells us about the film, and remember "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" opens August 7th 2009.

     

    Just got out of a screening for GI JOE in my hometown of Kansas City. It was at the AMC Mainstreet. They said we were one of the first audiences to ever see it so here’s my review:

     

    I definitely loved GI JOE growing up and I remember playing with the toys and reading the comic. And of course I watched the cartoon show whenever I could. I was excited when I first heard they were making a GI JOE movie. It’s something I would have died to see when I was growing up. However, I was also nervous when I saw some of the images and heard about some of the casting choices. So I went into the screening excited and a bit worried but really had no idea what to expect.

     

    But after seeing the movie tonight all I can say is HOLY #$@#! – this movie blew away my expectations. It's a really good movie. It’s a ton of fun and a great ride. And much closer to the GI JOE I remember than I was expecting. The audience was really into it throughout and they applauded at the end. As we walked out of the theater you could hear how excited people were about having seen the movie. I can honestly say that it’s one of the most entertaining and fun summer movies I have seen.

     

    For one, it has amazing action in it. There are 5 huge action sequences which are as good as anything I’ve ever seen. In particular there is a scene in Paris in the middle of the film that is just mind-blowing. This scene alone would be worth the price of admission. There is also a great ambush scene in the woods, a great training sequence, an attack on the The Pit and a huge underwater sequence at the end. Also we get to see Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow have some great sword fights, which I loved.

     

    Also the characters are great in the film and it has all the main ones I remember like Duke, Scarlett, Hawk, Baroness, Zartan, Destro and Cobra Commander at the end. And of course Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow, who were my two favorite characters growing up. We also learn a lot about these characters in flashbacks, which was great to see. And one of the biggest surprises for me was Marlon Wayans as Ripcord. I was expecting him to be too over-the-top but instead he is great in the movie and adds just the right amount of humor, which the audience loved. He’s not goofy. Instead he’s a good soldier and is incredibly heroic in the film.

     

    I think the biggest surprise for me is how much I loved the story in the movie. It was a great action-adventure story with characters and relationships that I really cared about. There are also several story surprises in the film that I wasn’t expecting. Especially the last scene in the movie, which has a great twist.

     

    I would really place this movie right up there with STAR TREK and UP as the movies I have liked most this summer. And I can’t wait until I can see it again. It’s that much fun.

     

    So there you have it and if you're interested we weren't the only ones who got a review, 'Beaks' over at Ain't It Cool News got two reviews as well. Also Frosty over at Collider managed to see the film as well so be sure to check out his review HERE.

  9. Shaun of the dead

     

     

    LOVE THAT MOVIE!

     

    I'm into British humor anyway, and have followed and loved just about everything Monty Pyhton and Pyhton-ish on film as it is, so Shaun of the Dead was right up my alley. HOT FUZZ is pretty funny also. ^_^

     

    Somehow, I get the feeling that Pegg does a pretty awesome Scotty role?

     

    If you like those movies , you should check out the British TV show "Spaced" that they did & yeah , I thought Simon Pegg did a great job as Scotty .
