must see this!
I hear this was great...didja like it?
The last two movies, The Two Towers and The Return of the King.
I liked it.Other people I know who seen it were bored to tears.
I like History so I'll find it interesting...
Richard Crowley--hated it
Foreign Corespondent, Hitchcock--good movie
Roku: Check out Shockwerks--they play horror movies w/o commercials.
New Death Wish.
Ok movie. Theater was packed and cheering at the end.
Trumbo, starring Bryan Cranston. He was excellent; I thought the film was good, and quite important. I wish that some of the actors playing stars in the movie looked more like them though. Much more.
Breaking Bad actor is so versatile.
Secret In Their Eyes. It was okay. Good ending!
Just yesterday, my wife, her mother and I watched "Darkest Hour" and at one time or another, all three of us fell asleep, if that tells you anything? I will admit that Gary Oldman (usually the great "bad guy"), was truly great as Churchill, it's just too bad that the director took too long telling his story.
Today, I plan on watching "Three Billboards" and I'm hoping to stay awake!
The Bounty with Anthony Hopkins, Mel Gibson, Daniel Day Lewis, Leam Neeson, Bernard Hill,...
What a great cast but boy, has it dated! Gibson is pretty hopeless and the synthsizer score is cringeworthy.
We've Got Balls
I watched every which way but loose for the 200th time last night. Its bad, I know its bad....but I like it.
We watched The Prestige this weekend. It was well-made and well-acted, but I figured out the two secrets/twists extremely early. I actually sat through most of the movie thinking that there had to be a reverse twist or something because there was no way it was going to be as obvious as my first instinct. But it was. That kind of ruined the experience for me.
My first question was whether I had rented an anti-white movie about racism.
My second question was why did Julieanne Moore rob the cradle of Matt Damon?
Was it normal in 1960 to marry a boy 10 years younger than you?
Despite this odd casting, I found the movie well worth watching.
The one bug for me is the same one as always; every old car is perfect, not an ounce of dirt on any of them.
It think that is the case for a lot of time period piece films that require vintage cars.
For instance, within the past couple months, they have been filming some scenes for the new Ted Bundy Biopic, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile, starring Zac Efron and Jim Parsons, in Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati (they finished filming scenes and wrapped in the area about a week ago.) One of the outdoor scenes being shot was on the streets of Covington, Kentucky (supposed to represent Colorado in the '70s where some of the movie is set,) and required automobiles from the '70s. Every car used for the scene being shot that day was a '70s automobile. The production people must've had a callout beforehand for local people who had '70s vintage cars. One guy that got interviewed by the news said he had previously bought a '70s Grand Prix for a few hundred dollars, fixed it up, and then flipped it for a few thousand dollars and it ended up being one of the cars being used in the movie. They showed it on the news and the car looked pristine, in brand new condition.
Over the weekend, on Saturday, after they wrapped up shooting in the area, they had an auction of all the time period props that were used in the movie, such as clocks, chairs, couches, records, payphones, cash registers, wardrobes and other time period items used in the movie scenes.
The Bank Job-Great Movie!Sorry I don`t have time to elaborate further.
I understand people want their classic cars to look as nice as possible, but it makes the look of the movie seem phony.
Like purses and keys, I guess they don't expect you to see the obvious.
