Get Him to The Greek - This movie sucked and Russell Brand isn't funny. Jason Segel needs go away. I only laughed twice. When P. Diddy said, "This is what the music industry is all about," while the hotel room was on fire behind him. Then, in extra footage takes of Kirsten Bell playing a blind doctor.
I had high hopes for that movie, but absolutely hated it. I like most of the actors, but man, that movie fell flat in every possible way with me.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009) - Finally saw this movie with the kiddos, who have seen it countless times. I know a lot of my friends thought that tHBP was the weakest book, but I enjoyed the movie.
An American Werewolf in London (1981) - This is one of my absolute favorites, and I gave up trying to talk my wife into watching it with me, so I watched it all by my lonesome yesterday. I can still remember a lot of the movie from when I first saw it, and the movie really holds up well IMO. I need to get some more horror movies in the mix, and will perchance revisit some of the better Freddy and Jason flicks. Fun fun!
No one cares that you saved an extra nickel on this same deal back in 2007. If it doesn't apply to the current deal, please keep it to yourself.
The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) - Saw this with my son on Saturday, and we both really enjoyed it. This was his first Spidey flick and it did not disappoint. It had an Ultimate Spider-Man vibe, which did the trick for me. Emma Stone rocks, too, by the way.
Knight and Day (2010) - My six year old daughter really likes Tom Cruise, so we watched this on family movie night last night. It was a fun popcorn movie that went over pretty well.
Hoping to head to see TDKR later this week. Fingers crossed!
Watched The Dark Knight Rises (or returns, or whatever it's called) this weekend. I enjoyed it, and was excited about all of it. My boyfriend was disappointed when it ended though. He says it wasn't what he was expecting, and he has been a fan of the previous two movies.
Cabin In The Woods - i.e. the other Joss Whedon movie. As long as you realize this movie is one large metaphor and that it doesn't take itself too seriously, then you can relax and enjoy quite an entertaining movie. Take it too serious or don't look at it the right way and it's idiotic. Amazing Spiderman - Quite good I have to say. Where the first Spidey movie with Tobey Macguire was more loyal to the comic in storyline, this movie butchered the comic book storyline and reworked a few things a completely different way. Garfield plays a better emotional Peter Parker but Tobey plays a better nerdy Peter Parker. Savages - based on a best selling book by Don Winslow and the author even helped write the screen play. Oliver Stone directed and honestly I didn't get the impression Ollie was directing. I think he's lost a step honestly. For the book followers, they will be happy and upset by the ending, that's all I'm going to say.
”We Need to Talk About Kevin" -This one lost me fairly early on. The ending was interesting enough, but it was a long, boring road getting there. 2/5
"Untouchables" - A really good French film about a paralyzed billionaire and his young caretaker. Definitely some "Scent of a Woman" in there, but overall a very different film. 4.5/5
"Hysteria" - Movie about the development of the first electrified marital aid. 1/5.
"C.R.A.Z.Y." - From Quebec - a story that follows a young man through his early years and his strained relationship with his parents and siblings. Pretty good, great use of 70's music in the film. 3.5/5
"Stolen Life" - Drama about a young woman in China - I don't want to give anything away, but there was a "holy crap" moment in there for me. 4/5
"Solas" - A slightly "off" middle-aged woman in Spain, her estranged elderly parents and their relationship. 3/5
My son and I finally saw The Dark Knight Rises (2012) last night. We absolutely loved it and thought it was a great way to wrap up the trilogy. I hope they can figure out some way to have Nolan return and see what he can do from here. *crosses fingers*
Dazed and Confused (1993) - Finally caught this on Encore over the weekend, and I really enjoyed it. The soundtrack was amazing. I wonder if they really hazed the incoming freshmen like that in the mid-70's? I was 5 in 1976, so I am no help in that matter.
The Spiral Staircase (1945) - I had high hopes for this one. I really liked the premise, but the movie didn't click for me. The atmosphere was great, but the film would have been better off as a short (think Twilight Zone) in my opinion. It was good to see once, but I won't have to see it again.
