Above Average or B

I haven't seen the original in so long that I was able to judge it fairly well as its on film.

Overall I liked it and will add it to my collection and place it in the Halloween viewing rotation.

I wouldn't say it screams "see me on the big screen" but since I hadn't been to the theater since the let down that was Avatar I came out happy.

Whaa? I feel bad for you, man. I've seen quite a few movies in the theater since Avatar. Two of them -- From Paris With Love and Edge of Darkness (especially the last one) -- I consider to be worthwhile theatrical endeavors.

Its not that I didn't want to go to the theater I just didn't have time or other responsibilites kept me from going.

I was curious about Book of Eli and Edge of Darkness. As part of the Regal Rewards I got a free movie ticket when I went to Wolfman. Maybe I can double back and catch Eli cause its still at my closest theater.

I saw it yesterday, and thought it was a pretty good flick. del Toro was the right pick for a wolfman.

Ah, I understand. I would suggest Edge of Darkness over Book of Eli, though, if you do.

Re: The Wolfman (grading and discussion)

I liked it quite a lot, would like the chance to see the earlier edit of the film which was about 17 minutes longer.

It took me a moment to get into it, but I enjoyed it. The casting and FX were good. And the set up for a sequel was well done.

Okay, I can see where there could be a sequel, but who says there will actually be one?

Have you ever met Hollywood?

If this movie even does OK after the box office/DVD Hollywood will cash-in on a sequel.

Re: The Wolfman (grading and discussion)

The Wolfman opened with $36 million, which is decent but not great. It'll be interesting to see if the film has any legs.

Re: The Wolfman (grading and discussion)

Not much concerned with box office. I liked it enough to add it to my library when it comes out on DVD.

It got its butt kicked by the shlocky bullshit of a RomCom that came out. But, VD was this weekend so I guess it makes sense a RomCom would do better than a melodramatic thriller.

This movie probably would've done better later in the Spring or if it opened closer to Halloween.

But Valentine's Day weekend? Whose billiant idea was that?

I dunno. I was able to convince my girlfriend to see The Wolfman. Something about a hairy wolfman creature just... turned her on.

And that was before del Toro put on the makeup!
