Spent the whole weekend gearing up to the finale by watching all my DVR'ed Season 6 episodes in a row. Without spoiling anything let's just say that I found myself shedding tears that I wasn't expecting to shed and, all things considered and taking into account that the show was going off-rails in an incredible entertaining way ("Across The Sea" excepted, an instant bottom-of-the-barrel-even-by-"Lost"-standards clunker of an episode), on the whole I dug it. It can't and doesn't stand to logic, but that's the beauty of a show about "Lost": it never was about explanation, it was about exploration and hanging around with the explorers. This one is going to be fun to go back and start from the beginning when the Blu-ray complete series packages come down in price around Thanksgiving/Christmas... 2007?!?!

Considering how many of the reviews of this set singled this out as the jewel of the collection, I think I got caught up in the hype a little bit and was subsequently a little let down. It's a good movie and it's an interesting movie, but I don't think it's a great movie.

Sam Rockwell is so good in Iron Man 2 that I've had to rescind my assertion that only Robert Downey Jr. could play Tony Stark. If it's true that Rockwell was considered for Stark when the studio balked at casting Downey, then all I can say is that he would have pwnd the role had he been given the opportunity. Still, he's awesome as Justin Hammer. In his scene with Mickey Rourke in the airplane hangar, he puts on a clinic in making comic book absurdities appear natural and realistic. His befuddlement over the bird request alone is so in-the-moment it just sells all of the whack-a-do exposition going on in the scene.

The script Terence Fisher had to work with is muddled and excruciatingly slow-paced, and what few action sequences are in the film are clumsily handled. I expected much more given the presence of Richard Greene, along with Peter Cushing and Oliver Reed.

Near feature-quality animation, great writing, and a massive, two dozen-plus character, non-chronological storyline that somehow feels coherent despite jumping all over the place. If the rest of the show is half this entertaining, it'll be a classic.
