    I thought it was okay. You're right that it's not as good as the first, but at least it's full of action.

    Get the Gringo. Really enjoyed it. Classic Mel Gibson. A shame it didn't get a theatrical release in the US.

    This morning I saw an episode of Ultimate Spider-Man and Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Unfortunately, they were both pretty weak episodes.

    Currently working through The Newsroom. Have heard a lot of great things about it so wanted to see what the fuss was about.

    So far it seems a bit self-important but am still enjoying it.

    I just finished watching the first season of Once Upon a Time on DVD (I saw most of the later episodes on demand,but I missed seeing a bunch of the early ones)...I love this series!...It's fascinating seeing different sides to classic fairytale characters,and I love how there are so many references to the Disney versions of the stories (the names of the dwarves,Maleficent,and the genie character coming from Agrabah,for example)...

    Next,I'll be watching Titanic on Blu-Ray...I've been looking forward to this release...I love this movie...though it is really sad/bittersweet...

    Robot Chicken DC Comics Special. Some funny bits.
    Bane breaking Batman's back at various points in the show.
    Aquaman was totally dump on.
    Superman kissing various villians make them forget why they hate him.

    To continue my Transformers roll, today I watched the Scramble City OVA, and the first two episodes of the Transformers: Headmasters. I'm hoping to finish the whole G1 series by November.

    I'm watching Titanic for the first time in forever (I only ever had a VHS so it's been a while). And as I watch it, I'm starting to see it more and more as your average fan fiction. It's a good movie, but it's got the signs. The OCs aren't bad, but I wonder how this movie would fare if the director was different.

    Today, I finished the Transformers: Headmasters series. I can safely say I liked it, even if it had its weak moments. Also, I am now a Sixshot fan. I hope to start Super-God Masterforce soon.

    Nothing of a new release - but I'm 4 episodes from re-completing Dragon Ball for the umpteenth time. Re-liking it especially from when Goku took on the Red Ribbon Army.

    Just finished The Fellowship of the Ring.

    I can't believe that movie is ten years old. :(

    I just finished watching Happiness is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown for the first time. It was really fun. The pacing worked well, the humor was great, seeing some of the older strips used for the special was nice and the message that they were going for at the end worked pretty well. It was a great special and I'm glad that I finally got the chance to see it.

    Stumbled across Drew Carey's Improv-a-ganza earlier on GSN. Had never heard of it before, and apparently it's already ended, but I ended up watching two hours of it. Absolutely hysterical! Perhaps even moreso than Who's Line Is It Anyway?

    Now I've got The Shining on BBC America in the background while I just mess around online.

    Just finished a couple of NCIS episodes on USA. Gibbs = Awesome.

    Also re-watched a couple of Gundam 00 episodes. One of the best Gundam series of all time, the only gripe that they needed more than 49-episodes to tell the story right.

    I'm watching the Superhero Squad Show again, and for some reason it's more entertaining than the latest Avengers show

    Been watching Dragon Ball Z (orange bricks, yep, but, whatev. I don't mind them, just wish it wasn't widescreen)

    On a week nightly basis, usually after 9, been going through Big Bang Theory on DVD, seeing some episodes for the first time. Great series.

    Sint, a 2010 Dutch horror film that reimagines Sinterklass (the Netherlands' equivalent of Santa Claus) as a malevolent creature who returns to avenge his death whenever his annual celebration night coincides with a full moon. It starts off pretty good and has some neat tinkering with the Sinterklass mythology, but ultimately it suffers from a shift in tone and a script that lapses into laziness and confusion. Technically well made and visually appealing, but the strong start is undermined by the lackluster third act and unsatisfying conclusion.
