Been watchin' Burn Notice (season five), The Walking Dead (season three) and Arrow (season one) a lot the last few days, but I managed to get a few movies in, too.

H2:RV was okay, not great. I haven't seen the original version, which I know establishes the Immortals as space aliens. This isn't much better, but at least they're still human, just from the distant past and sent into the future. I've now seen the first four movies of the franchise, and the first is still the best.

Anytown, USA was an odd little documentary about a mayoral election in New Jersey, where the two party system looked like it would get challenged by a third, write-in candidate. Turns out, not so much...the incumbent won, the third party guy didn't even split the vote enough to make a difference. And then he died.

R237 was a odd movie that was just clips from The Shining and other Stanley Kubrick films and voiceover interviews with seemingly random folks about their impressions of The Shining. Off the wall stuff, too, like how it's all about the American oppression of Indians, the Holocaust, and even Kubrick's confession that he helped to fake the moon landings.

RI was an interestin' documentary about how Native Americans have been portrayed in films for the last hundred-ish years. I rather liked it.

And since it was named dropped in the documentary, I followed it up with Smoke Signals, the first film written, produced, and directed by Native Americans. Its a road trip buddy movie, but still enjoyable.

And then M&L, a made for tv movie with Sean Hayes as Jerry Lewis, that chronicled the professional relationship between Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis.

May wind up at the theater for Captain Philips tomorrow...
