Everyone’s A Critic, Especially When They’re Home Sick

So here’s what I did while sick. I watched a buttload of movies from Comcast’s On Demand. Here are my insta-reviews.

Inglorious Bastards. I’m a Quinten Tarintino fan. I don’t get the hype for this movie. I guess I thought it was going to be something else — more Kill Billish, if that makes sense. I guess I was expecting more action or something. Loved the Hans character. Maybe It’ll grow on my upon a second viewing.

Terminator: Salvation. I didn’t hear good things about this film. It was OK. I’m not a huge Terminator fanboy to begin with, so I probably viewed this more like a generic action movie than an installment into the Terminator universe. I did like the nod to the first film, and I’m sure there were about a thousand inconsistencies with the whole time-travel aspect. But so what? I was sick.

X-Men: Origins. I also heard bad things about this film. Meh. It was what it was.

The Hangover. I’m a bastard when it comes to comedies. What some people find hilarious, I find stupid. I entered this movie with an open mind and knew I wasn’t going to find this movie as funny as other people. I think my problem was I saw this on Monday and was still burning up with a fever. This made me nod off a few times and I probably missed some stuff I shouldn’t have missed. I think the concept was good, but I knew there were a LOT of jokes that I just went “ho hum” at while the fellow patrons in a theater would be laughing out loud.

Zombieland. This had the potential to be great, but they screwed it up with the love story.

You know, I’ve had the Comcast super channel lineup for 5 years now, and I rarely watch movies from the HBO/Starz/Showtime/Cinemax stations. No more. I might as well make the most out of what I’m paying for this. I keep thinking that if I watch these movies On Demand then the experience will be ruined when I buy them for $4 at the local DVD/CD store. Then again, these films On Demand are full screen, so there will be a different viewing experience when I get them on DVD. Yeah.
