Splintered (2010) - some completely unlikable kids (this is a British movie) go out in the woods and happen across a large abandoned building. A psycho lives there and starts killing them. I guess the building had some decent atmosphere but that's about the only good thing I've got to say about this. Plot's been done a hundred times before and almost always with better characters than this. 2/5.

The Sorcerer and the White Snake - I'm pretty out of the loop as far as HK and related cinema goes but this is pretty good. I've seen Tsui Hark's
Green Snake I think it as called that is the same basic story as this one. It wasn't my number one favorite mainly because I thought it tried to hard to be weird and exotic. This one is quite different.

Jet Li is the sorcerer and two hot girls are the snakes. One of them hooks up with a guy (she can become a person) and all heck breaks loose. There is a lot of CGI and so forth. I couldn't even tell what was really and what was computer animated a lot of the time. There's not much kung fu but a lot of spiritual moving things around with your great magical powers a la the force that I like. The romance works well. It's very hard for them to love each other because she's a snake demon thing and he's a guy and you're not supposed to do that.

Obviously if you're a martial arts purist this is the last movie you want to see and as an old Shaw Brothers guy I as a little miffed at the lack of balls to the wall insanity and grindhouse flavor of those films but it was still fun. 4/5

The Tall Man (2012) - a nurse lives in a small town where many children have been abducted in the past. The locals blame it on a mysterious figure known as the tall man. It's not long before the nurse's kid also goes missing and she's off in pursuit of the kidnapper. I thought this was some sort of horror movie but no, it's a drama. There was a neat plot twist where you realize that everything you thought you knew was all wrong, but other than that it hasn't got much going for it. It seems to think it's being deep or something, but it's not. And could they possibly make Jessica Biel look any less attractive? She was totally hot in that Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake. 3/5.

Y'know, I saw his name in the credits and I couldnt' remember where I knew it from. Thank you!! That's been bugging me for a couple of days now and I kept forgettting to Google it.  BounceGiggle

On topic:
"The People Vs. George Lucas" (2010) A very funny documentary that examines the rapidly eroding relationship between "Star Wars" guru George Lucas and his fans, who are irritated by pretty much everything he's done involving the "Star Wars" universe over the past twenty years (i.e. the "Special Editions" of the original three films, the "Han Shot First" controversy, disappointment with "The Phantom Menace" and the existence of Jar Jar Binks, etc.). In between the interview segments there are lots of clips from homemade Star Wars "fan films," some of which I'd like to see more of. (esp. the "Misery" parody where a fan-girl keeps an injured Lucas prisoner in her home till he re-writes Episode III. Haha!)

If nothing else, this movie makes it official that "Star Wars" fans have become just as annoying and bizarre as Trekkies.

Jack- I was blown away by the Tall Man. I was baffled by the twists and impressed with the whole theme of what to do about children w/ no opportunity in life yadda yadda yadda. Biel didn't look that great I agree

ff- I remember seeing comedian Neil Hamburger when Phantom Menance came out and him doing this joke "Why did Jar Jar Binks cover himself in s**t? ...cuz it's a stupid character." I still haven't seen any of those.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
