RE Extinction's the kind of movie that Tarantino characters would watch while smoking a bowl on the couch. It's a more honest piece of trash than "Shoot Em Up" and there's one classic scene, featuring a zombie learning a cell phone, that's on a Mel Brooks level of comedy genius.
Hey Leydon-I was in your class last year.Glad you did a blog on 3:10 to Yuma.. yeah the action is nice if your into that (i am!), but more importantly.. the acting job by the two stars (way more so with Christian Bale)is awesomely done. Your always wondering what the guy is thinking through his eyes (the good/ evil). That's awesome. Matt Damon did it in The Departed, but he was a bad guy. Ths is a good guy-your wondering what he's thinking though!Two thumbs up (it's better than Eastern Promises-some people rated that one higher-no way!)
