Watched Poltergeist yesterday. It was on TV and I just got sucked in...not literally, like Carol Anne! :lol: It's just such a great scary movie. It never gets old.
Spoilerall the way to the end. I mean you go into that movie even if you haven't read the book thinking "this is about a guy and his dog..." a dog only lives so long. I saw it with my 10.75 month old yellow lab (who this week has been AWFUL!) and I did better than I thought I would. But everyone in the theater was crying too. Kinda' pissed off at myself that I didn't check which mascara I was putting on and wore the regular not the water proof though.
I had to keep telling Gabe "don't get any ideas...." But as a lab owner I've had the "wait you ate what?" experiences so it was funny.
THE SOUND OF MUSIC -- I used to think this was the most boring movie ever when I was a little boy. And I also hated songs so I never returned to this movie ever. But since it's one of my mom's favorites, I bought it for her last Christmas (2007) but she never opened it.
Last night, she wants to watch so I sat down and gave it another whirl. It's actually pretty good. Some of it is awkward due to the time period of when it was filmed (random cuts in editing and sound mix being weird and off sometimes) but it was interesting to revisit.
The Spirit- ehh. Plot was complete nonsense. I liked the style quite a bit though, so it's pretty much like a Tim Burton film in that regard. Will not be buying it.
Aliens- Found it for a steal. In my opinion, the best of the Aliens Quadrilogy.
The Journey to the Center of the Earth-meh it was a cute family movie, but wow those effects were just awful.
The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor: Not bad, not great. I think I liked it a little better than the first two, maybe because Stephen Sommers didn't direct it.
The Dark Knight: As Excellent as the first two times I saw it in the theater. Nothing beats seeing it on the IMAX screen though.
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button: Pretty interesting movie. Kind of reminded me a little of Forrest Gump and Big Fish put together.
I went to go see Milk today. It was such a wonderful movie. I was in tears at the in.
Superbad- It still makes me laugh after the millionth time of watching. Not a lot of movies do that to me.
Spiderman 3- I've had it for a year but I think it was only the second time I watched it. It's better than I remember.
Saw "Despereaux" yesterday. Completely forgettable. Animation is nowhere near Pixar quality, in terms of emoting. Nearly all of the good-guy characters do something evil, often with very little motive.
Lucky I had gift cards for the theater, so it weas worth the $8 I spent (two of us, total).
I actually quite enjoyed it. A couple of plot twists caught me by surprise which is always a good thing.
Well, my TV shows are in reruns for th THIRD STRAIGHT WEEK (what's up with that?), so I think I'm going to watch Teen Wolf Too. I've never seen it and since I have it on DVD now (it came as a double feature with the original Teen Wolf), I'll give it a shot. I expect pure cheese.... and Jason Bateman goodness!
