Forgot to mention that I started watching Your Highness (2011) yesterday. I didn't laugh at all in the first 30-40 minutes, and that was about as much as I could bear so I turned it off. I prefer to watch a film all the way through if I can, regardless of how bad it is, but I have my limits also. Humour's a funny thing, no pun intended. Surely they can gauge how funny a film is going to be while making it, although presumably they thought it was funny? (Hence the funny thing reference) It's particularly odd that current film favourites James Franco and Natalie Portman are in it. Presumably it was a money thing, although I can't imagine Franco is particularly expensive.

I started watching Rango (2011), which I've not finished yet. It's a lot better, although the characters are so damn ugly and just plain odd it's a bit off putting. For some reason the "camera" also spends a lot of time right in their faces. Depp is fantastic though as Rango.

Just finished watching Rango, truly bizarre. The textures in the animation are so detailed it's rather distracting.

Yes, it's certainly a work of art of some sort, visually speaking. Not that taken by the story so far, or more so lack of story. Still need to finish it though.
