I just watched Drag Me to Hell again for the fourth or fifth time last night. I love that movie. IMO it is the best horror movie that has come out in a very long time. The part where he pukes the kitten out is awesome.
I love Joes. They are delicious.

The A-Team (2010) - 4/5
Saw the first show this morning. There were some things I liked and some I didn't.
My biggest complaint is the film's structure, as it seems to take too long to get to the core of things. First we open in Mexico for a (very) long pre-title sequence that introduces the characters and shows how they all first met. Then we jump forward several years to find them stationed in Iraq, being ordered to intercept a convoy carrying counterfeit US money plates and facing their subsequent court martial when they're set up. Then we again jump forward several months to their prison escape and plans for revenge. By the time of the heist/trial, probably close to 40 minutes have already gone by. I think it would have been better to just open the film in Iraq with the characters already a group and working together.
Once past the opening sequence in Mexico, which is the closest the film gets to being like the show (complete with GMC van and AC-556 Ruger Mini-14), the film basically becomes The A-Team: The Next Generation, as the basic elements of the show are jazzed up for newer audiences. It's still a lot of fun, though. Liam Neeson, while not a name I would have ever thought of for the part, is a perfect match for Hannibal and at times invokes the image of George Peppard. Bradley Cooper makes a good Faceman, though at times plays him a little wilder than Dirk Benedict. Quinton Jackson never tries to imitate Mr. T and makes B.A. his own. But the real standout is Sharlto Copley, who is dynamite as Murdock! He steals every scene he's in and has some true laugh-out-loud moments.
While the tone is much more serious and gritty than the original series, it never forgets that it's a popcorn action movie and certainly knows how to have fun. The relationships between the four reminded me of the show, so I was glad the filmmakers didn't lose sight of that amidst all the crazy wild action.
It's probably not the A-Team movie I would have made, but as a fan I was pretty happy with it and enjoyed finally seeing these characters on the big screen.
