The sad thing is, I can't even remember. I watch mostly tv these days. Much easier to fit a 40 minute tv episode than a 2 hour movie into life with a toddler.
The last TV I watched was Vampire Diaries last Thursday, which was good, though not quite as action-packed as the previous week. I swear, more happened in the last 10 minutes of that episode (2x01) than happens in entire seasons of some shows!
I don't watch Movies as much as I should. I haven't completed a movie in at least 1-2 months because for some reason I always seem to get bored with them. I'm much more of a TV buff. The last movie I attempted to get through was Children of Men last night (which is one of my favorites ironically). The last TV show I have watched recently was Battlestar Galactica S1 Episode 10- the ep where they raid a Cylon fuel facility. Amazing ep in my opinion. The ones preceding that was Boardwalk Empire, Dexter S2 Ep 9 and I can't remember past that. I watch way too much TV.
I just watched "Vicky Christina Barcelona" - Slow, slow, slow, slow..... slow-moving. Unlikable people, especially the repulsive male lead character. Pretty much hated it, although I managed to get through it. The happy ending to that movie is the viewer's own happiness that an unbearably slow, boring, movie has finally ended!
It's Vivienne Leigh week on TCM. "Anna Karenina" was on last night. It was the first time I'd ever seen it. Loved the period costumes, otherwise, just another Russian soap opera. Now my Hubby has some movie called "King of the Hill" on. Not to be confused with the cartoon comedy show of the same name.
I watched a really stupid gay film called "The creature from the Pink Lagoon." It was a zombie flick. One of those B-movies where everything is far fetched, with cheap effects and some really bad acting.
The funny thing is, it wasn't horrible. I have seen a lot worse. I was thinking that the Mystery Science Theater robots were going to show up at any moment and start trashing it.
Like...Oh man! I masterbate with that hand! And, how am I going to comb my hair without any fingers! You Zombies suck!!
I haven't watched a film in ages, think the last one I saw on on the tv. Jaws 3 I believe. Before that probably Harry Potter and Half Blood Prince, was impressed with that and can't wait until November when the Deathly Hallows is released.
I also saw Vampires suck. I thought it was really funny up until about the last 20 minutes, then it was just really stupid.
But if you want to see a lot worse, watch Taintlight. It is another twilight spoof that looks like it was done by somebody with a camcorder. It's so stupid, with zero special effects, but, it suprisingly not horrible.
The last movie I watched was Secretariat. My wife and I went to the movies together this last weekend and saw the movie about the greatest racing horse in American thoroughbred racing history.
The movie was superbly presented.
Sincerely inspiring but for more reasons than the story about an amazing horse.
Mainly the film was about the owner's daughter who took over the horse training and care after her mother died and her father was too disabled to do so himself. Her determination in the face of certain disaster was absolutely remarkable.
I watched the Swedish version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo last night and although it was dubbed i have to say i thoroughly enjoyed it. In the most part is stayed true to the book, the characters and the direction with gritty. I very much doubt that Hollywood will make a better film with their remake.
I watched "Kick Ass" the other day, and I absolutely hated it.
Only Hollywood would turn a child into their version of a modern hero. Apparently modern child heros enjoy killing people without so much as a flinch of the eye, as this girl was killing anyone that moved. And, having the whole father daughter killing team, was just very sad to me.
It that wasn't bad enough, lets throw in the mob, complete with it's own father/son losers. And you got the most predictable super hero movie ever made. And, add to that, the whole lame idea of the mob boss ussuming that a costumed guy he sees on youtube fighting gang members that are way too old to be in a gang, and you have an even more retarded plot.
I know some people liked the movie. But, I didn't.
Predators, it was an instant classic and the clever nods to the original were just ace, the music and the jungles of a distant planet that looked suspiciously like the Amazon rain forest were spectacular!
