I watched Wrath of the Titans, which was actually pretty good. Decent enough story and tons of action. Plus seeing Liam Nieson be a bad ass Zeus fighting side by side with Hades against the hordes of Cronos was great.
Also finally showed Gene the movie he's been dying to see: Citizen Toxie: The Toxic Avenger 4. It's a bit too long, ridiculously over the top and full of childish humor, but damn it, I like it. Tito the Retarded Rebel is easily the most hilarious character in that movie.
Had a mini marathon of Rodney Dangerfield. Caddyshack and Back to School. Cost me a total of 4 bucks for both dvds. Well worth what I paid.
Almost done with The Octagon, the Chuck Norris flick. Outside of the fight scenes, a rather lackluster film. Average story, cheesy acting, horrible internal monologue. It's actually been funny for all the wrong reasons. Although, I have high hopes for the ending fights. But getting there is a tad brutal. Tomas, might have to let you see this one before you leave.

Finally got around to watching Lost in Translation. It's definitely overrated, but an alright film overall. It did drag around the 45 minute mark, but it picked up a little while after.
Also checked out 2012: Zombie Apocalypse. What's funny is that the scenes involving the zombies are really lame (due to the horrendously bad CGI effects), but the parts with the characters talking and getting to know each other are really good. Not nearly as bad as others have said, plus seeing Ving Rhames carrying around a giant sledgehammer is awesome.
I saw this other thing called "Zombiethon" which was basically a small series of sketches that led into footage from other zombie films. It was more or less a "best parts of the movie" clip show, and considering what was shown, that's not a good thing for most of the movies that were showcased.
I started to watch The Raid Redemption, but I was incredibly tired and went to sleep after 40 minutes. What I did see was really awesome though.
Decided to marathon The Basement box set. Checking out the dvds finally.
Watched The Basement, which was a blast to watch again, even with the horrible dubbing. And followed it up with Captives. Okay film, but felt like it should have been a half hour shorter. Would never own otherwise were it not for this box set.
Watching Cannibal Campout right now, and so far, I find it to be surprisingly entertaining. Not good by any means, but so bad it's good.
They all look to be made with the cheapest of cameras, which add to the cheesy factor. Were these better looking, they'd be shittier films. I get a Turnpike Killer vibe from the level of acting, or lack thereof.
