The movie you just watched

Recommended Posts

We started watching American Graffiti last night and will finish it tonight. A good nostalgic trip down memory lane for both of us.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail last night with kiddo. She had no idea. Laughed her ass off the whole time. Which is a very good sign imo.

Twins are home from UT, each night they are re-watching in chronological order one of the 23 movies from the Marvel Universe.  They talked my wife and I into watching them for the first time .  Finished the films in Phase 1 yesterday, watched Iron Man 3 tonight which begins Phase 2.  Damn these flicks are fun.

Did the same with my dad last year, now he's hooked as well.

This Beautiful Fantastic.  Had a vibe similar to Amelie in the beginning.  Fairly predictable plot, but it's a pleasant ride with a few good laughs.  Chick flick that's tolerable for men who don't like chick flicks.

Man on Fire (2004). The goofy editing turned me off at first, and it doesn't bring anything to the table. But once you get used to it, this is a darn good film. It got like 38% on RT, which proves 62% of reviewers are idiots.

TCM Underground is serving up a double feature of women in prison movies this week.  The first half of the bill was the Roger Corman-produced Caged Heat, which was the directorial debut of Jonathan Demme.  Pure brain candy with endless gratuitous shower scenes.  Worth a look if you enjoy lowbrow stuff.

Yeah just came by to talk about it.  I love 70s B movies because the conventions weren't formed yet.  I had no idea what was going to happen and the ending caught me off-guard.  That Warden was one weird cat.  And yes it helped that they were all model prisoners.

I'll throw ya a bone for Yesterday and Blinded By the Light. Both solid films so you can't be all bad.

Not a film, but I'm really enjoying going back through From The Earth to The Moon on blu-ray.

Went over a list of classic movies with my college age son to find some he has not seen. This afternoon we are watching The Sting

Watching movies together separately with the kids through facetime as we're all in separate cities.  Started with The Wicker Man last weekend and gonna try Burning (Korean film) tonight. 

Similar to what we did a few years ago where we'd go see the same movie on the same day and then discuss it the next day.

Watched Bone Tomahawk last night on Prime. Good western with some great scenery. Ending I thought was rushed but worth a watch.

If you like It's A Mad, Mad, Mad World, I highly recommend a 70's version of something similar in What's Up Doc.  Streisand, Ryan O'neal and Madeline Kahn.

Just on TCM.  It really is a classic.  The scene with the judge is non stop with laugh out loud lines.

Streisand was pretty hot in this. Fight me or check it out for yourself.

*and directed by Peter Bogdanovich

Logan Lucky - great watch, loved it

saw it this evening.  good movie.  but channing tatum is an awful actor and daniel craig’s “accent” was a distraction the whole time.  I don’t understand why the casting directors get it in their head that they just have to have a guy, even if the part is a southern redneck and the actor is a dirty brit.  the accent was worse than kevin costner playing robin hood.  that casting director should never work again.

Amy Adams' Cleavage American Hustle - great boobies movie, visually stunning, very enjoyable to watch. Wife liked them it too.

Tomorrow Never Dies, and I don't know why this movie gets dumped on.  Better theme than Goldeneye, and it captures the late 90's better.  Rogue Russian military gear, an evil medial barron, Teri Hatcher in a high-cut thong.  Also prophetic.  Self-driving cars and a kerfluffle in the South China sea.

I was not prepared for the gore in this.

 

Watched "Frequency" with Quaid and Jim Cazezeel or however you spell it.  Had seen it before, but once again in my advanced age my memory is apparently failing and it was basically first watch over again.  Good idea, always a sucker for time travel stuff.  Good father/son flick.

Bone Tomahawk for the third time. I love recommending this to people and then waiting for their reaction. Love this movie.

Watching Sophie’s Choice for the first time in probably 25 years. Streep & Kline are amazing.

I watched the first 10 minutes of the Pianist and liked it. Then I remembered it was directed by Roman Polanski.  So I turned it off.  Screw that guy.

Caught Lovely Bones the other day while flipping channels.  Stanley Tucci and Saoirse Ronan among others.  Decent movie.

Just went through my Netflix history to see what my 13 yo daughter has been watching. Her last 3 movies were Taxi Driver, There Will Be Blood, and Blade Runner. I gotta say I’m pretty proud.

Every issue gawked about in TND is still being debated.  It's the most relevant Bond flic out there, swapping out the newspaper for the internet is the only update the script would need to be made today.

Yeah, she's pretty hot.  Wonder if she's even been in anything else...

Lords of Chaos on Hulu. Somewhat true story of the beginning of Norwegian Black Metal, murder, and church burnings. Pretty good with some really graphic violence if that’s your thing.

Gun Crazy (1950) - Some guy who is a marksman meets some chick who works for a carnival and is also a marksman (markswoman?).  Things go sideways with the guy who owns the carnival so they bail out and go on a multistate Bonnie and Clyde-esque crime spree.  I was entertained.
