Stayin' at my friend D's place the last few days, I found Crisis on Two Earths in a stack of unopened DVDs. She said I could open it, so I did. Watched it, found out I liked it, and she said I could keep it, so I thanked her.

I thought it was a pretty good movie, and especially liked James Woods as the voice of Owl Man.

Went to the Blockbuster in Hammond, LA, and took advantage of the 99 cent daily rentals to watch Planet Hulk. I didn't care for it much while I was watchin', and it took me awhile to figure out why...in the movie, the Hulk is always the Hulk. Sedated, sleepin', not fightin', smoochin', whatever he's doin' that isn't smashin', he's still the Hulk. Bruce Banner is not seen a single time in the film, and that bugged me. Also, the Hulk talked, a lot, which didn't seem right to me.

When I rented Planet Hulk, I got a coupon for a free 99 cent rental on my next visit, so I used it to get AvP: Requiem - Unrated, since its something I've never seen and really didn't feel like payin' to watch, ever.

And AvP: Requiem was a gawd awful movie...its like they asked themselves, "What's darker than a sewer? Night! How can we make the night darker? Power failure! Nope, we can still see with flashlights...I know! Let's make it rain, too! And then set the whole bulk of the action outside, at night, in the rain durin' a power failure!!!"

Weird thing - when I used my free rental coupon, they gave me another coupon for a free rental. If I had stayed for another day, I'd have used it...

I've got passes to see two different movies this week, now that I'm back in Texas, but both screenings are on Tuesday night. Not sure if I'll go see 50/50 or Don't Be Afraid of the Dark.
