Sharktopus – For those of you who missed this SyFy travesty last fall, please check out my Sharktopus Play-by-Play. You have been warned!
Director: Greg Mottola
Stars: Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Seth Rogen
The Plot: Two British comic-book geeks (Pegg and Frost) traveling across the U.S. encounter an alien outside Area 51, and with their unexpected new companion aboard their RV, they find themselves chased by federal agents -- as well as the father of the young woman the trio accidentally kidnaps.
Potential to be bad, however – it has Simon Pegg and Nick Frost! Those guys are awesome.

Tangled – Sweet movie. Should’ve been nominated for Best Animated Picture.
Don’t forget the Oscars are on Sunday night! I’m prepared for triumph and disappointment. Inception will get further shafted and How to Train Your Dragon will lose. And it will be WAY too long...
