Dude, I dunno. That movie was nothing like what I thought it would be. It got all feelsy. I wanted more porn jokes.

This week I enjoyed Dallas Buyers Club, didn't enjoy The Avengers and currently am enjoying Captain Phillips.

We saw The Way this past weekend. I thought it was interesting from a cultural perspective. I liked the movie enough to watch it once, I wouldn't watch it again but it wasn't bad.

I liked Captain Phillips, just finished it today. Apparently the real story was very different, but it was an entertaining film nonetheless

I have watched quite a few movies lately. I saw Gravity and have to say I was bored. Got it for my husband who is fascinated with space and he did not like it either. Dallas Buyers Club was fantastic and despite how heart-wrenching it is, I could watch that movie again. Captain Phillips was also really good. And finally Austenland, which I absolutely loved. I wanted to watch it over again once I was done. I did not read the book, so I had no thoughts going in. Then again, I'm a sucker for those kinds of movies. Though I think one of my fav 'austen' movies is Lost in Austen.

I've put Austenland on my list.

I'm sorry to hear about Gravity, that was going to be my next watch, I'm a big sci fi fan :s

Well, many people have loved Gravity so you might too, especially being a big sci fi fan. I just did not think there was much story there.

I would be interested to hear your thoughts on Austenland - some people love, some hate it. Not an oscar worthy movie, but entertaining.

I just watched The Lifeguard.

Spoiler: show
I wish there was, like, a drop down trigger warning thingy you could check out before renting / streaming / downloading a movie. Then you could check out the themes that might come up and make an educated decision about whether or not to watch it. Feeling pretty sad / triggered / freaked out right now & it's not a movie I'd have chosen to watch alone / just before going to sleep. Ugh.

It's a good thing you say Austenland is not an Oscar worthy movie, so I can adjust my expectations. It's always dangerous to watch a film having high expectations. ;) Anyway, I should have the film soon.

I did get a bit scared after reading what you said about Gravity, I'll still watch it, it did made me put it second in line. My standards are lower when it comes to sci fi, so I should be fine :). Anyway, I watched the film 'Boys don't cry' from 1999 I believe. I didn't know initially what it was about, but it was an ok film, made me a bit sad about people though.

I'll let you know about Austenland, I'm very curious!

Who is on Letterboxd? I'm pickledtreats over there. I've been looking for a goodreads-style log for movies and I'm liking this one. I have way too many movies to add, though. It's amazing to think how many hours of my life have been spent getting lost in movies. And how at least 9 of those are from National Treasure. I just can't NOT watch it when it comes on TV. And it always seems to come on at the moment when I'm hungover in my sweatpants laying on the couch.

I finally watched Catching Fire and really liked it. Also watched the Dallas Buyers Club last night and I was just blown away by Jared Leto's performance. There was just little scenes of brilliance, you know? Heartfelt and not overacted... And great movie overall. Heart-wrenching, as was mentioned upthread.

Old movie alert, but I just watched The Untouchables for the first time. I'm a sucker for a David Mamet script and this one did not disappoint. Also, the baby stroller shoot out was ridiculously amazing.

I saw "The Grand Budapest Hotel"! I think it was even more visually stunning than Wes's past films! Just every shot, as usual, is absolutely gorgeous. As for the actual movie/story, I liked it and thoroughly enjoyed it! I'm not obsessed though like I was about Moonrise. But omg Ralph Fiennes <3 <3 <3 amazing.

I downloaded the Croods for my kids, I thought it was horrid, nobody liked it and we didn't even finish it.

Hey PorshaJo! I watched Austenland yesterday, it was brilliant! I laughed so much. we were just going to watch 5 or 10 minutes to see what sort of film it was and then go to sleep, it was late already, but we watched the entire film, so I'm a bit tired today ;)
This was one of the funniest films I've seen in a long time and I love it that you mentioned it here, I would have never caught it otherwise!

I would love to send you some of our chocolate for no charge if you'll have it. It's just to say thank you. Just send me an address to post it to and it's on its way to you. I don't know if you can send private messages here, otherwise just use one of the shop addresses below.

I went with my sister in law to watch the stag last weekend, as there wasn't anything else she wanted to see so we thought we'd go with a comedy. Oh my god what a turd. A cringey, badly acted, unfunny, annoying turd. GAH!

Anyone else going to see the new Muppet movie this weekend? Best thing ever about having kids is that I can go see movies like this without looking like a creep-o.

My kids don't like the muppets, which is a shame because I love them, so I'm not going to see that one :(

We saw frozen recently, which I didn't like and my daughter was bored halfway through and she usually likes princess films, I thought it was just a quick production they made just to cash in.

We saw Gravity, sorry if I already said that on here, loved it. Was very different than other space movies which I liked too.

I'm that creep-o that would totally go see the Muppets with no kids - I love love the Muppets. but I'd want like a midnight showing so hopefully there'd be no kids in the theatre disturbing my viewing experience, and there-in lies my conundrum. (Yes, I totally identify with the grumpy old balcony men.)

Let us know how it is!

Oh I'm so glad you liked it. I ended up watching it again and caught a few things I missed. Sorry that it kept you up, but sounds like it was worth it. :-) I like to check this thread frequently as there are so many movies I might have over looked. I'm always looking for suggestions.

Thanks for the offer of the chocolates. That is very kind of you but not needed. Though I am a chocolate fiend.

I don't think I mentioned it in this thread before but I finished watching Iron Sky. I'm usually not a spoof type movie person but it is just a bit too good. Especially the Palin-esque president.

Loved Iron Sky. Can't wait for the sequel. It was brilliant, right down to the fact that they had Laibach do the music.
