Pacific Rim, pretty good,and especially awesome if you like giant robots (which I do) and Kaiju (which are pretty cool).
Gravity which is a must see! It was AMAZING
I'd been thinking could be something I wouldn't mind seeing. Whether I'll hit the cinema for it is another thing, but...
The most recent movie I saw was 'Riddick'. It was alright I suppose, but I kind of expected more from the movie that was a follow-up to 'The Chronicles of Riddick'. The entire "Hey, you've lived up to some crazy predestined fate and now you are the leader of the Necromongers." premise was the direction I was sure they were going to take.
Instead, you just get a vague explanation of "Well, they usurped my throne and dumped me on this planet" to connect the two movies. Without that connection, it could just of as easily taken place anytime before the events of 'The Chronicles of Riddick'.
Hilarious movie that had me laughing through it all.
LOL. Reading its blurb, I was thinking isn't it a little early to do a remake. Until it sunk in it isn't
I'll happily catch it on TV, though. Ah, good ol' Vin ;-P
Just watched I, Robot today... I'm a little behind so what. I thought it was pretty good...
I, Robot.... Hmmm, it's been a while, would have to rewatch it to comment.
A friend took me to see Malavita (aka The Family). Not exactly much substance, but, Luc Besson, De Niro, Tommy Lee Jones, and generally a great cast, funny to hilarious, fine script and ditto cinematography, good clean violence (nouvelle violence I guess) -- bring it on
I've known worse ways to spend a night. Then on TV of late: Saw The Curious Case of Benjamin Button again. A wondrous and moving movie, to me.
There Will Be Blood was on but I couldn't finish it. Must have seen bits of it before; Daniel Day-Lewis doing a great job.
Gravity or Thor II. I can't remember. Both were great fun. Not really for Sandra though, hehe...
Hunger Games Catching Fire.
Saw it yesterday, and I liked it. Haven't read the books, but I thought the pacing was a bit fast. The actual games barely lasted for half the movie.
Thor: The Dark World.
Really improved from the first one.
Yesterday was my comedy day:
Beavis and Butthead Do America
Pee-Wee's Big Adventure
Seth MacFarlane's Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy
Now I'm hoping to see Catching Fire soon.
Just saw The Book Thief
Great book, great movie
On TV, Lars von Trier's Melancholia.
Had great expectations; couldn't figure out what the heck all the hullabaloo had been about.
Not recommended. The lengthy over-the-top intro has some added comic value, but entirely unintentional, one suspects. The long-foreboded ending meanwhile is so anti-climactic as to make you wonder why you just sat through all that. As for the cast and their behavior's bearing on it all, right, don't ask me.
On TV yesterday, Burn After Reading, the Coen brothers, 2008.
Funny, clever, no less than expected with directors and a cast like that. Loved the end scene. Ah, plus that shooting sequence, LOL
I used to be a fan, but then sort of lost track of them, ever say after O Brother (perhaps less due to them, but more to the way the movie theater business has developed, as well as my financial state ;-P ). Glad to see I still am
