The Ten Commandments saturday night, classic. The family had on Lilo and Stitch last night and I caught the last 1/2, Disney produced several quality family friendly movies over the last decade or so. My middle child is a Disney nut, she can quote a lot of the lines.
I rewatched The Woman in Black and Grave Encounters. Great horror movies!
I saw two movies this weekend and it was strange since I just picked them out randomly how they both turned out to be more character portraits more than story.
Rampart (2011) - I really liked this one. Woody Harrelson plays a career bad cop that does lots of bad things like taking the law into his own hands, stealing from criminals, etc and doesn't think he is doing anything wrong and justifies it with the "I'm only hurting bad guys" reasoning. He gets caught on video beating someone half to death and that starts an investigation and an avalanche of bad deeds from the past coming back into the spotlight. Through it all, he sees himself as the victim. Fascinating character study type movie.
Greenberg (2010) Ben Stiller - I would have given this a thumbs down right after I saw it but this is one of those that gets better with some reflection time. While I was watching, I didn't really get what the director was doing but it is a about a character with mental issues and he has put up so many layers of protection he can't get close to anyone. The problem with trying to like this while you are watching it is that Ben Stiller plays one of the most unlikeable characters imaginable. So I didn't like it yesterday but I think I like it today. So I think maybe the director accomplished what he wanted because I'm still thinking about it.
I finally got to watch Skyfall this weekend. I thought it was a good movie and I enjoyed it, but I didn't think it was as awesome as it was built up to be.
Just watched a classic: Ghostbusters. I loved that movie when I was a kid, and I still do!
I watched The Kings Speech Sunday night. Not my normal cup of tea, but I loved it. It made me giggle thinking of every speech the King ever did, having Lionel stood not ten paces away mouthing along with him, doing his little "tricks" to help him along. Brilliant.
The Shaft starring Naomi Watts (who I love) and James Marshall (James from Twin Peaks). I am trying to get a collection of James Marshall movies going (he's HOT). This is not a good movie, even with Watts in it.
Got 'Stargate' on bluray! It still holds up! This is a really good scifi movie!
