IT Crowd on DVD; love it.
It's directed just as well as Black Books but the actor playing Roy is kind of wooden in his movements.

How much is changed from the books, do you know? To be honest, I did not even know it was based on a series of books until I looked it up on Wikipedia. I read there was a comic series as well; that sounded really interesting.

About 50% is actually from the books, but the entire thrust of the plot from the second half onward (and all of Lord Blackwood/Sinestro's character) is either taken from the second book or made up from whole cloth (more of the latter). []

Well, the book's ending makes much more sense, but I prefer the movie's ending. Other than that(which you might consider a pretty big contrast) they're pretty much exactly the same. Edward Norton voices the character really well, and the dialogue is virtually copied from the novel. There's a few bits left out, of course, but then there always are. I prefer the movie because it has Brad Pitt and Edward Norton and Helena Bonham Carter, all wonderful actors. The novel has less charisma in that respect.

Everyone should hurry up and see The Dark Knight Rises, so we can discuss why it was good enough, but could have been better.

THIS SPOILER TAG CONTAINS SPOILERS
ALL THE SPOILERS
VIEW AT YOUR OWN RISK
Spoiler:

In general, it's an ok movie that had some good ideas worked in to it, but some of it didn't make a lot of sense. Bane, the main villain for most of the movie, is pretty unknown and I think that's the reason they picked him as a character. The whole plot of "return Gotham to the citizens despite the city's inevitable doom" seemed a much more fitting theme for The Joker with his whole "some men just want to watch the world burn" persona. Bane's actions didn't have any hint of motivation until the big reveal at the end, and even then it seemed kind of tacked on. It felt very much like they planned to have The Joker as the main bad guy, Ledger's death made them rewrite the script, but they liked the story so much they only changed the guy who carries out the plans and a fairly feeble reason for him to do so. They did do a good job with Bane's origin story, which was pretty cool, but didn't really fit properly.

I liked catwoman (or at least, woman-very-heavily-implied-to-be-but-not-actually-named-as-catwoman) mostly because of the subtlety surrounding her character. I liked how in most scenes she's wearing something (usually a type of goggles, I believe) on her head that makes it look like she has cat ears.

The big reveal at the end is totally out of the blue and I swear the minute that girl revealed herself as Ra's al Ghul's daughter, she got at least 40% more Asian. I didn't even remember her having an accent before that. Why was she even still pretending to be one of the good guys long after Bane took control? It only serves as a way to explain the fact Bane knew about the fusion reactor since it was supposedly her plan all along to get that thing built. Still no real explanation why the league of shadows hates Gotham so much, which bugged me a bit.

And the grand finale where Batman "dies" would have been a great point to end the movie. A sad, but heroic ending to both the movie and the series.
Instead, he's still alive, in a relationship with catwoman and the young police inspector becomes Robin for no apparent reason. They could have implied that he was going to be the new batman (which wasn't really that necessary in the first place) just by walking in to that cave, there was no reason to actually change his name to Robin. I fear they're trying to keep their options open for another sequel.

A lot of things bugged me, and I think they could have done a better job explaining and giving the bad guys an actual purpose. It's not terrible, but nowhere near the level of The Dark Knight.

I failed to mention that I saw Dark Knight Rises and The Amazeing Spiderman in the same day.
I'm not going to give a review of either, I will simpley say one thing about Dark Night Rises.
Spoiler:
When they where retaking Gothem, one pherase came to mind:
"Demons run when a good man goes to war."

I watched the movie and, being the retard I am, I took out my Ipod and began a timer when
Spoiler:
the bomb showed there was only 10 minutes left. A minute after that, they show it again, and this time it's 5 minutes left. The bomb exploded at 6 minutes after the bomb said 10 minutes left, so, at the same time, it was too early and maybe a bit too late.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that.
Spoiler:

I wonder if all nuclear reactors have a super-accurate digital countdown clock on them when they go in to meltdown. I would have preferred if they had just said "we've strapped a bomb to this thing" instead of "the material will eventually become unstable and explode in EXACTLY 10 MINUTES"

About that:

Spoiler:
They said it was a fusion reactor, right? As in the kind that we are currently unable to create? And that they made it into some new kind of bomb never seen before that no one knows how to create or disarm except for one guy. There's enough material there for a suspension of disbelief. It may be a stretch though.

I prefer A Goofy Movie to it's sequel, An Extremely Goofy Movie, which was a very good movie too, but the sequel just felt...rushed. It just didn't have that spark the first one had.

SILENT HILL revelations

based off the 3rd game, it follows sharon, (heather, Cheryl whatever)and her father.
vincent seems to be the love interest (unlike the game because he was much older than her and also a little evil), dahlia is the same dahlia from the first movie and not the game.
the monsters look nice so far so i hope its good.

BATMAN BATMAN BATMAN

Spoiler:

SO AWESOME
LOVED IT SO MUCH
WILL BUY ON DVD, BLURAY, VHS, ESPN, FOX8

I THINK A LOT OF CRITICS ARE FORGETTING ONE MAJOR POINT ABOUT THE BATMAN FILMS:
MOVIES =/= REAL LIFE
I UNDERSTAND PEOPLE WANT GRITTY HARDCORE MOVIES BUT UNLESS YOU WANT TO SEE A FIVE-HOUR LONG BUREAUCRATIC RECORD OF BRUCE WAYNE HAND-LOADING AMMO INTO HIS VEHICLES AND PERFORMING ALL THE MANUAL LABOUR IN THE BATCAVE, I THINK THEY ARE JUST NITPICKING

"SCIENCE DID IT"
BAM, ANSWER FOR EVERYTHING IN THE MOVIE

The things which actually annoy me are the little ways they dumb down the movie and make it cliche; "you should use your legal name -'Robin'"
OH SHIT, I DIDN'T REALISE THAT WAS HIM
THE THREE HOURS OF SET-UP JUST SLIPPED RIGHT BY
THANKS FOR CLEARING THAT UP

"I love you Botmen; I am the Catwamen please lick my milk"
I HAVE NEVER SEEN BATMAN PAIRED WITH CATWOMAN BEFORE
WOW THIS IS SUCH AN ORIGINAL HARD LOVE STORY

Loved what they did with Bane, though; such an improvement from the George Clooney "BANE SMASH"

Michael Caine is too old and should be put down.
Morgan Freeman should have been replaced with an actor better suited for the role; I'm fairly certain they only put him in so there was a black character.

In conclusion;

Marion Cotillard
OH MY GOSH
