Went to the local Blockbuster today

Nine days left open.

Picked up some really great DVDs for cheap:

The Watchmen
Angela (A Luc Besson flick, I got five others)
The Fountain
A Scanner Darkly
There Will Be Blood
JCVD
Moon
And Killing Them Softly

So when I have no cable (Or if it's more boring than usual), I've got some great time wasters

1. I've seen Watchmen and Moon

 

Watchmen is probably my #2 comic book adaptation right behind The Avengers. Moon is one of the best sci-fi films of the last decade (at least). The director Duncan Jones is David Bowie's son (Zowie Bowie), btw.

2. Interesting ones...

The Watchmen

One of the more interesting comic book adaptations. It didn't work for me but it had some good high moments. I thought the ending silly and overdone.

Angela (A Luc Besson flick, I got five others)

Have yet to see it.

The Fountain

A very interesting visual and aural experience. Something of an art house piece. Again didn't completely work for me but many aspects of it are great IMO.

A Scanner Darkly

Not seen it.

There Will Be Blood

OMG probably my favourite movie of all time!

JCVD

Not seen it.

Moon

Quite a goof sci-if psychological horror or types. Not your typical sci-if piece.

And Killing Them Softly

Very good, and dark, crime film.

5. Cable can be (and often is) very boring

And the commercials are longer and more plentiful

7. A couple of years ago, a local video store went out of business...

And I was able to pick up a number of DVD movies for dirt cheap that I know I will watch often.
