I know I'm a bit late in the day, but here you go! Pre-Emptive Strike Thursday! Not much to strike at, though... honestly, I think I'm just gonna go see The Dark Knight again... but here you are anyway.


Title: X-Files: I Want To Believe.

Pre-Thoughts: I wasn't ever really an X-Files fan. I think I've maybe seen one episode, and I saw the first movie ages ago during a rental. I have to say, I'm not excited really one bit for this movie... and will probably take a pass. Though I'm sure it'll be exciting for X-Files fans everywhere (though about a decade too late). And I'm sure it'll be an exciting movie, even though I'd miss a lot of the nostalgic moments due to not being a fan. Also, I think the subtitle is stupid.

Stop Saying Okay! Okay.

Title: Step Brothers.

Pre-Thoughts: It's Will Ferrell... doing the same character he's played in the past 50 movies (minus Stranger Than Fiction and Winter Passing, the latter of which I still need to see)... but continually stupider each time. Anchorman was the height of his comedy, in my opinion. There were moments of Talladega Nights that were pretty funny... but that's it. Jon Heder did better than him in Blades of Glory. I didn't even bother with Semi-Pro... much like I won't be bothering with this. Even the trailer looks as if the movie is trying too hard (except for that bunk-bed scene, which was funny the first few times, but now I'm sick of it having seen the trailer a billion times everywhere I look). Come on, Will... either do better comedy, or do more movies like Stranger Than Fiction (I'd prefer the latter).

Feed Me, Seymour!


  1. Yeah, I still need to see Winter Passing as well. I remember seeing previews for that when it first came out.

    Now Step Brothers...I do want to watch it, but I'm not sure if I need to see it in the theater. We'll see what happens.

  2. I Want To Believe!!

    Ok, that's not true. I'm passing on both of these as well, methinks. (Though you really should watch some old X-Files shows - I never got really into it, but I've seen plenty and they're usually pretty good. Never saw the first movie myself.)
