My gf bought me a ticket last night to go see The Hangover Part 3.. I'm not kidding, it's one of the worst movies I've ever seen. I laughed maybe 2-3 times the entire movie. It's the biggest mail in of a movie I can remember. Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms are legitimately passengers the entire movie while Jeong/Galifianakis pretty much just talk nonsense the entire film. Don't go see it. Although I anticipate most of you probably wouldn't have gone to see it anyways.

Say Star Trek today. Pretty good film, and I loved Cumberbatch. I did have two main criticism though;
1. Minor detail, but why was the meeting that Khan attacked being held where it was? Since when does an emergency meeting in response to a terrorist attack with the suspect still at large get held in a tower with floor to ceiling windows making up one wall? Have the never heard of bunkers?
2. I felt Khan was underwrote. They made him out to be both superior physically and intellectually, and brought in Spock to claim that he was the most dangerous threat they had ever dealt with. Yet to me, the movie only highlighted his physical superiority. Yes, he can beat the absolute **** out people and is handy with weapons. But considering its a world that revolves around ships not individuals, that's not enough. They never really gave him a chance to illustrate his "superior intellect". The whole sneaking onto the ship only to betray the Enterprise may be the best example, but it is exactly what the Enterprise expected to happen. As for the threat he supposedly posed, I didn't think it was fully justified on screen. The closest we got was the explosion why they only show happening at some distance, and when he simply crashed his destroyed ship into the city. Yeah, probably killed a lot of people, but not something that strikes me as "the biggest threat ever". The last episode had the villain literally destroy an entire planet. I know the plot was about preventing Khan from being able to do such things, and I don't expect that every new film has to have one more planet destroyed than the last, but I think they should have had him using his "superior intellect" and causing a lot more damage than he did. Either that, or don't portray him the way he did and just leave it at physically enhanced genetic supersoldier. If you want the villain to be the baddest guy yet, you have to make him do some bad things.
Two people hanging out exploring themselves and the world around them. Sunrise takes place in Vienna. Really fantastic film. I had heard great things but never checked it out. A friend of mine would not stop raving about it and forced me to watch. I thank her profusely for that because it really should not have taken me this long to sit down and watch it.
