Random Movie Notes:Take 2

Stop Loss—Kinda boring and didn’t hold my interest. Ryan Phillippe continues to be hot though.
Sideways—Enjoyed it.
Friday Night Lights Season 2— Still loving it but it became more TV show-like this season, which is a minus.
The Bank Job–not great, but not bad. And Jason Statham is fucking sexy.
I Am Legend—unpopular opinion, but I didn’t like it. Liked the way he was with the dog though. Will remains watchable.
Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium—hmmm…would I watch it again? No. But it wasn’t bad. Also, it gave me one of my new favorite movie quotes ” “What kind of insufferable fool drops a hot dog?”
There Will Be Blood—I watched it for that whole “I WILL DRINK YOUR MILKSHAKE!” thingie. The movie was peculiar….I forget sometimes what a spectacular actor Daniel Day Lewis is. His performance is what kept me watching.
My Blueberry Nights—What a steaming pile of horseshit. I really considered doing a recap of the movie while I was watching it, because it was so bad. Norah Jones CANNOT act(but she is still a great singer) and is totally unappealing on screen.
I Heart Huckabees—Flat out did not like it. Jude Law is the only reason why I kept it on. Not because he’s cute, but he’s just watchable.


Random Movie Notes: Take 1

So, I watch a lot of movies. A LOT. I get stacks of DVDs from the library, so seeing how that stuff is free, I just blindly put things on hold and watch pretty much anything that even remotely appeals to me. I’m not going to waste your time with long critiques of movies. I’ll keep it short and sweet.

This week’s viewings:

Gone, Baby, Gone: [Boston accent]Wicked awesome[/Boston accent]. No, but seriously, great movie. Directorial debut of Ben Affleck—I was impressed. You know what was sweet? In the credits of the movie, the first two people he thanks are Jennifer Affleck and Matt Damon. Awww. I love the Ben and Matt friendship. (proof of whiteness) Watch this movie.

Flags of Our Fathers: Kind of boring….but Ryan Phillippe looks damn good in uniform. I like WWII movies but this one wasn’t moving me.

Friday Night Lights:Season One: Okay, so far? Totally in love with this show. And Drunken Bee’s recaps over at Television Without Pity make it that much more fun. I especially enjoy the mentions of Kyle Chandler’s hair’s acting. Season 2 is on hold at the library right now. I love TV on DVD.
