With one roommate out of town and the other at work, I went a little nuts with the Netflix Instant.

First off, TP, which sucked...a version of the Treasure Island story, but set in space with aliens & robots.

Watched the third SK movie, set after the Rock's movie, but before the events of the second Mummy. If nothin' else, at least it has King Hellboy vs King Jango Fett vs Prince Phantom.

Was in the mood for some Arnold, so I watched Commando. I had passes for The Last Stand, but it was too damn cold to wait in line at the theater. Cheesy '80s action movie all the way through.

I watched Battle Royale last year, and found the sequel on Netflix. It was a huge disappointment, really. The first one was much better, with way more dark humor.

The Invisible War is my first documentary this year. It played at the Drafthouse for only a few days last year. It is all about the sexual assaults & rapes suffered by women and men in the US military, and how those cases are handled by the chain of command.

Did a three-movie marathon at my theater on Thursday.

First up, TC 3D, which was an awful fuckin' movie that turns the serial killin' Leatherface into a simple-minded protector locked up in the basement.

Followed that up with The Hobbit in high frame rate, which I didn't like. It was my third viewin' of the movie, 2D, Real 3D, and finally the HFR. The movie just seemed flat to me at 48 FPS, the action too fast, and even though I know it was filmed on location, some how it just look like a bunch of studio sets.

And then LoA, which was a fuckin' great epic and I'm glad I saw it for the first time on the big screen.

Watched the latest Ron White special on DVD yesterday. And it was pretty damn funny, though he talks about his dick a lot more than usual. The special does have the added bonus of havin' been filmed at the Paramount Theater here in Austin last year.

Started to watch Valkyrie on DVD last night, but dozed off a bit durin' it. Got it playin' now, since I'm awake way too early.

And that makes 25 "new to me" movies so far this year.
