we're finally catching up on a few movies. watched "The Princess and the Frog" at Sebastian's instance on the "big screen" (projector) on Saturday. actually pretty good, though it does seem to borrow heavily from Disney animated films of the 60's and 70's.
Sunday magentabee and i watched "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus," which has sat on my shelf longer than any other Gilliam film before being viewed ever, something like 4 months. i enjoyed it like i enjoy nearly any Gilliam movie though i can see where the death of Heath Ledger caused some wrinkles in the storyline that weren't entirely ironed out by release time. overall not one of Gilliam's best but worth a watch for any of his fans.
last night was "Army of Darkness" the director's cut. ok, ok, i get it that Ash is a fan-boy cult hero and it was enjoyable but i think i like the first couple of Evil Dead movies better. then again, it's been almost 20 years since i've seen those so maybe i need to go back and watch those for comparison. anyway, yes it took me this long to see "AoD." and the DVD was rather grainy with a poor transfer and no 5.1. ah, well.
