I and two of my friends watched This is 40 on Friday evening.
A Clockwork Orange
I've seen this one a few times but I watched the blu-ray for the first time and the blu-ray edition is outstanding. It's amazing how violent this film is and there is virtually no blood.
I got to see part two of the Hobbit, some great laughs.. and Smaug was impressive.
What did you think of it? I saw it a while ago, and was a bit thrown--though there were some very funny parts, quite a lot of it was very mean spirited. I remember reviews saying, "This is just exactly what married life at 40 is like", and I didn't get that at all.
We watched MONSTERS UNIVERSITY and MONSTERS INC. again. Kids love them (Even the almost adults--19 & 17)
It was good, maybe not one of my favorite. I was expecting more laughing and comedy of the movie.
I just saw an old horror movie from '78 a few days ago called 'Dominique is Dead'. Thought it was gonna be another 'B' movie but I was wrong. It was pretty darn good! Atmospheric and spooky. Keeps ya guessing. Not sure how I overlooked it.
Today I watched my favorite Xmas movie Home Alone. A movie that will never disappoint.
Zero Dark Thirty - There are probably some embellishments with this movie but I found this riveting and fascinating. A very interesting look at how the intelligence services operate as well as a good thriller.
Lovelace - If you watch this, make sure you have plenty of hot water available because you will need to take a shower after watching this. I like James Franco but he was terribly miscast in this as Hugh Hefner. Luckily, he only had about 5 minutes of screen time. He was awful in this.
Watched Rocky Horror Picture Show last night. Pretty good and really weird (in a good way).
It makes Pennywise a helluva lot creepier.
I watched RARE EXPORTS, a Scandinavian Santa movie last night (well, I technically watched JINGLE ALL THE WAY today, but I slept through most of it--lol). REALLY liked RARE EXPORTS! NOT a kid movie at all, but different and clever. I've been very pleased with Scandinavian films in general
Have you seen it in an actual movie theater, surrounded by true fans of the movie? If not, try to experience it at least once- it's like nothing you've ever done before- true audience participation.
No, but I have read about it. I'll probably try it when I'm older.
Really? - I thought the old audience participation thing was long gone(?!) I guess if enough fans got together they could revive it
(I've never experienced it myself but it was popular a few years back)
Watched The Scouting Book For Boys last night. This is a film about a pair of teenagers, David and Emily, who grew up in the same Caravan Park in Norfolk,Britain and have become best friends. The threat of having to leave and live with her dad causes Emily to disappear and she moves into a cave on the outskirts of town. David becomes her support system bringing her provisions and clothes until he discovers that Emily has a boyfriend, an older man, and she is pregnant by him. Deeply hurt, David takes drastic actions which lead to the tragic finale of the film.
A very enjoyable movie with a gripping story and superb performances by the whole cast.
American Hustle - Finally a great old-school period piece with an inspired cast. Killer music. Amy Adams smolders.
I want to see this Walter Mitty movie. Anyone catch it?
"Splendor in the Grass", Warren Beatty and Natalie Wood. Pretty emotionally intense!
Oh yes! it surely was - I saw that way back in middle school and it made me want to be sadly and madly in love with the wrong boy.
