I will go back and try it...somehow I think I will remain unimpressed.
Every time I set out to watch V/H/S, I end up watching UHF instead.
One V/H/S wasn't enough? Talk about no mercy.
And Apt Pupil is one of the best King adaptations ever! The ending of the film is better than the book.
And I love the part when the kid buys the Nazi suit for the neighbor and tells him to wear and Gandalf, is like, no, what do you think I am going to wear it while doing grocery shopping?
Imagine if you're at Vons and some old dude next to you in the pastry department is wearing a Nazi suit with a straight face.
Ministry of Fear
Fritz Lang film noir. Nazis are involved. Okay movie, but one of his minor works. This is the film that inspired the band name, Ministry.
This got better as it went along. I thought it was well done and both creepy and disturbing.
The Book of Eli
I thought this was okay and I loved the premise of the story.
I really liked this movie, but it was depressing.
Yeah, this is my first time watching it. I enjoyed it and it did have some nice visuals reminiscent of Italian Westerns.
Lego movie. GG, this is the most we've laughed at a movie in years. It was simply awesome!!
I was actually concerned we were laughing too loud several times.
There is sooooooo much going on on the screen at times, it's hard at times to take it all in. We look forward to DVD release so we can go back to hear all the lines - we missed many because of the laughter in the theater.
Blows away Pixar's last 5 - 7 movies.
Bigger than predicted opening weekend for Lego movie. Sequel already in the works. Good reviews all around. Want to see it...gonna have to go to a nightime show to avoid the kid heavy crowds. Did you see it in 3d? was it worth the extra $$$?
Pelicula muy bueno con mucho ja ja ja!
I thought this was okay. Nothing revolutionary and creepy children are always fun to watch.
I said not too long ago that this was the only Fincher film that I still hadn't seen, but I forgot about that film with Brad Pitt where he goes from old to young (whatever it's called). Anyhooow, I thought the Zodiac was well done and the scenes with the killer were genuinely creepy.
The African Queen
A few years ago, I became obsessed with watching every film on AFI's top 100 films list.
AFI's 100 Years...100 Movies (10th Anniversary Edition) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Well, I forgot about it, but was reminded of it when I came across The African Queen, which is one of the films on said list that I have yet to watch. I don't know if it's one of the 100 best films made (I feel the same about a lot of films on said list, lol), but I did enjoyed it. It's visually impressive considering the time in which it was made and Bogie & Hepburn are really good in it.
I still have 2 films to complete the list: A Night at the Opera and Duck Soup.
Brian DePalma with John Travolta, who works as a sounds effects guy accidentally recording what seems to be evidence of a political assassination. I really enjoyed this one and yeah the Hitchcock influence is all over it. This movie made me realize that I haven't seen enough DePalma films from this era.
