I watched The Conjuring on Saturday. Everyone said it was really scary but it didn't really bother me (even though I watched it alone in the dark at 1am). I thought it was good and thought provoking but not scary

Watched the latest Wolverine film. It was entertaining but nothing special. My dad thought it was shiitake, but pretty much anything with Hugh Jackman is gonna hold my attention til the end!

I finally watched 'World War Z'. I enjoyed this movie more than I expected. I think I went into it with low expectations so I was pleasantly surprised. My husband loved it which is always a plus. I had to watch Z as I think I drove him nuts watching 'Rock of Ages' and 'Pitch Perfect' over the last few days. I also watched 'The Place Beyond the Pines' - it was just OK for me. I really enjoyed the middle story but overall I could have skipped this one.

I just picked up about 8 movies from the library so need to work my way through those now.

Juno - It was alright. I kinda hated the music - that breathy-girl-with-acoustic-guitar sound is just about my least favourite. And it was especially annoying considering the music that was actually discussed in the film (punk and grunge, basically).

Burke and Hare, which isn't a story that I had ever heard of specifically but I had heard of similar stories. It was a pretty decent movie. They did a good job turning a movie about corpses into a comedy.

Stuck in Love - never heard of it but saw it on Netflix instant so thought I would try it given my love of both Greg Kinnear and Jennifer Connolly. Decent enough.

Disconnect - only watched about 5 minutes before I turned it off.

Philomena - lovely and tragic. And STEVE COOGAN

Yesterday I watched Stoker. It had a very stylized look, and was pretty to watch but mostly was boring and some people died and maybe some other stuff happened.

I watched Vegucated yesterday. Good documentary, interesting to see skeptical Omni's have their eyes opened, but it was dumb of me to be surprised by all of the factory farming footage. I sobbed for hours last night, my sweet dogs not leaving my side. Farm Sanctuary can be expecting some $ from me again here shortly...

We watched Boondock saints last night which is an older movie (1999). I was surprised to see Doc from Fraggle Rock in it! And Daryl from Walking Dead. It wasn't a bad movie but started better than it ended.

We saw The Wolf of Wall Street last evening ... very entertaining in a 'I do not like any of you very much & am pleased I do not know you.' kind of way.

28 Hotel Rooms as recommended in the Mindy Project thread. Really liked it.

On a similar note of adultery and nudity, Take This Waltz, which I also really liked.

I watched Vicki Christina Barcelona free on Amazon Prime and loved the scenery. But I am deep in Chris Messina crush land, so I'm basically like "WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO BONE BARDEM IF YOU COULD BONE MESSINA?" The whole time. Chris Messina in his white boxers is supposed to be a sign of how boring the American dude is - but man Chris Messina has an amazing body.

Yes, so I liked the movie. But got distracted because pretty.

We tried to watch Prozac Nation but I just couldn't do it. I read the book many years ago and thought the movie would be interesting but no. I think at the point that I thought it would be a good candidate for MST3K that I figured it was time to switch to something else.

house of versace - not as bad as i thought it would be as it is a lifetime movie.

The Wolverine - or, how many ways can we get Hugh Jackman's shirt off. It was OK - better than the first Wolverine stand-alone, but the best scene was the one in the credits.

A couple of old movies from the 1940s on TCM:

The Heiress (1949): Olivia de Havilland, Montgomery Clift and Ralph Richardson. Truly a marvelous movie. Wonderful! In every way. Exceptional performances, directorial concept, story telling, all of it. One of my all-time favorites. Makes me want to read Henry James' Washington Square which the screenplay is based on. I've read that Clift didn't like working with de Havilland in this movie because he felt that as an actress, she was giving him "nothing to work with". I can kind of see how in the sense of her character in the film being this extremely shy and awkward woman and the awkwardness in their early exchanges is almost painful to watch but it all works so well on the screen and for their characters, whatever hardships or misunderstandings went on between them during filming.

The Great Dictator (1940): Charlie Chaplin, Paulette Goddard. Another good'un. Chaplin's speech at the end is amazing and says everything about what I want the world to be, too.

Jesus Henry Christ - very cute movie about a kid trying to find out who his sperm donor father is, has Toni Collette.

Barbara - set in East Germany in 1980, about a doctor who was in jail for some reason and then winds up serving in a small town hospital and getting into all kinds of trouble. Serious, pretty moving.

Captain Phillips.
I know I wasn't supposed to feel sorry for the pirates, but I kind of did.

No I think you were! That's what made it special and not just a pirate movie. You could sort of empathize with their lack of opportunity and how they could be driven to criminality. It's sad! Also Barkhad just won the BAFTA today! <3 <3

Has anyone seen the Lego Movie yet? I want to :)

i tried to talk to some friends about Her tonight. their response to my spiel was, "i think you think more about movies than most people do." uhhh, o.k. anyway, i've seen it twice so far and i cried so much more the second time and it'll probably only get worse from here, but i have every intention of watching it at least once a month forever.
