Saw that last night. I enjoyed it, although I think the bloodiness was a little overkill.

Pun intended? Smile


Big Grin
The Watch

This movie gave Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 a serious run for its money as worst movie I can recall seeing the entirety of in the past decade. (Ultimately, the Twilight movie could not be unseated.) I've seen worse, I've just turned them off. D.
The Way We Get By

Documentary concentrating on three of the Maine Greeters, a group of primarily senior citizens who see off and welcome back troops that go through the Bangor International Airport.
Skyfall saturday night
The impossible last night. Emotional movie, should have picked a comedy. My wife would not stop crying.
Saw Zero Dark Thirty on Sat. night. I thought it was ok, but was underwhelmed. My wife liked it better than I.

Were you stuck on a runway for 4 hours?

Three hours is perfect for a flight to Boston.

Had to comment: I've watched it maybe a dozen times over the years. I'll never forget my first time, when the zither came on the screen, then the strings started to vibrate and play the theme song. I was hooked for life.

We showed it to some new friends about 3 years ago. They kept falling asleep and couldn't understand why we thought it was a great movie. We're no longer friends.
I don't know if you missed the point. Their lack of understanding of The Third Man's greatness was an indicator of our lack of compatibility.

This explains a lot.
GI Joe Retaliation - entertaining, cheesy, action movie.

Zero Dark Thirty - Good for a slow paced movie. I like Chastain, not particularly beautiful but still nice to look at.
Hey, if people with whom I had a friendship don't like the movies I like, I tell them to go...well, I don't need to complete the epithet, do I?
Been trying to get through "The Hobbit." Started twice on flights but couldn't make it. Is it worth trying a third time in the creature comforts of my basement? Love the Lord of the Rings trilogy so am expecting I will like this if I get through it

In the meantime, recently saw "Kick Ass." Fantastically funny flick brought to a new level by the performance of "Hit Girl"

First I don't think on a plane is the right way to see The Hobbit, think of seeing LOTR's that way. However, I really think, when all three come out, it calls for new type of director's cut where it's reduced down instead of expanded. It should never have been done as an 8+ hour three movie release.

The same could be done for the Star Wars Ep. 1-3. For example, digitally remove all references to Jar Jar Binks, and you have a much better movie.

And you may know many fans have done exactly that and made their own cut of the first 1-3 episodes.

Have you read Alfred Hitchcock: A Life in Darkness and Light by Patrick McGilligan? Much better than the more famous bio by Donald Spoto.

What did you think? My wife wants to see this next weekend.
Entertaining and good but falls way short of great. They try to do some character development stuff with Stark that falls pretty flat. If you are a fan of the comics you will HATE what they do to the Mandarin. Good action sequences and the requisite super hero humor stuff.

I have not, thanks.
For a Good Time Call...

Not gonna win any awards, but funny, sweet and cute. Seth Rogen's wife, Lauren Miller, who wrote, produced, and stars in it is smashingly attractive when wearing minimal makeup.

Nope. But Blancanieves got exceptional reviews, The Company You Keep got very mixed reviews.

Well, wife did not want to see Blancanieves, so went to see The Company You Keep. Meh... good acting (great, at times), fun to see all the old actors trotted out for a bow, but totally unbelievable.
