We watched Sinister and boy did it make me jump! ( I swear I was out of the chair more than I was in it) This movie is on par with Insidious as far as creepiness goes!! I'd say it is one of the better scary movies.
We watched We Bought a Zoo. What a nice, sweet movie. I liked it a lot, for some reason I wasn't expecting to enjoy it. The red kites made the waterworks come on.
Bernie - Jack Black and Shirley Maclaine
Black comedy supposedly based on a true story. Jack Black is perfect for this.
I watched two very good indie movies - Lbs. and Sleepwalk with Me.
I recommend both but especially Sleepwalk with Me. And if you like This American Life on NPR you HAVE to watch SWM.
A friend rented 'The Hunger Games' for New Year's Eve for us to watch (I don't go out anywhere on New Year's Eve!!). All I can say is I'm glad I didn't rent it. It was just okay, IMO. The sets and costumes all looked too 'new' to me, like they had just threw everything hastily together and called it good. I haven't read any of the books myself, so didn't really know what to expect. Plotline is good tho, reminds me of 'The Long Walk' for some reason. Those who have read the books, are they like the 'Harry Potter' books where each volume matures from being a kid's book to an adult one?
Men in Black 3 - My dad got me this for Christmas. Oddly enough, I also remember him getting me the first Men in Black movie when it came out on VHS. I rather enjoyed MIB 3 and Josh Brolin is pretty darn good in this movie.
hey, DLS...glad you liked it...
this makes the second time tom hardy has taken on a villain role in a movie i really wanted to like...and dropped the ball totally...
star trek nemesis, anyone ??
still...i won't give up on the guy...george miller has tapped him to play/recreate mad max in his new movie, so there may be hope for the guy to finally get it right
but comparing hardys bane to ledgers joker ??? can't see it...the whole world is not talking about hardy/bane (or this movie) like they still do ledgers creative leap and inventive take...can't see hardy recieving any across-the-board kudos or nominations for best acting like ledgers performance drew...
but, to each his own...glad to know i may actually be wrong
