I only watch commentary on movies I've seen enough that I don't need to be able to hear the dialogue to know what they're saying. I've even watched The Nightmare Before Christmas with Danny Elfman's commentary about the music on.

The commentary on Ghostbusters is pretty good. And yes, the Spinal Tap commentary is amazing. In fact, they even have amazing extra footage - almost 2 more movies' worth (I think it's something like 3+ hours of extra footage). And I think that was just one of the deluxe editions. I think I saw a 3-disc version once (though that may have included The Return of Spinal Tap, and/or I'm making that up).

....Seriously, people.

I'm planning on it sometime over break. I have dozens of Asian movies I want to see over the next three weeks.

And I love to watch movies with commentaries! It's one of my favorite things to do. Typically my favorite commentaries are for animated films, such as those from Pixar.

I suck at movie-watching. There is never enough money in my bank account to keep open a Netflix account, and going to see movies costs 10x more than it should, even with a student discount. So when I get the odd extra dollar or two, I Redbox it and if you're familiar with Redbox you know the good movies are always taken.

Last night I watched Shutter Island. Loved every last minute of it, and thought Scorsese did a good interpretation of the book (at least, IMO).

We were going to watch The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane but the DVD was too scratched to register on my player (thanks, Netflix). So we watched Sangre de mi Sangre, which was wonderful and uplifting cripplingly depressing.

I watched (500) Days of Summer again last night. I really love this movie. I laughed a lot.

The night before that was It's a Wonderful Life and A Hard Day's Night.

there's a Red Box near me, I always wanted to try it out.

You reminded me I want to see Shutter Island too!

Last night I watched Collossus: The Forbin Project. It was a good film from 1970 about evil computers.

I watched that last night. I generally don't really do Xmas movies, but I love White Christmas. I even convinced myself to buy it from iTunes because I couldn't find it for free and didn't want to not watch it.

Last night, after getting home from Christmas festivities with my wonderful fam, I watched the 1966 film Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. This is one all-time favorite plays and I've never seen it performed, have only read my print copy to dog-earedness. ET was better as Martha than I expected her to be. I kind of thought she'd be a disaster, but she was pretty good. The relationship between George and Martha in the movie was somewhat more tender (especially at the beginning of the movie) than the version I've had in my head after studying the text of the play, but that's not a bad thing, just a bit of a surprise. I like to see a slightly different interpretation of something which I have programmed in my head a certain way, and have it still be plausible for me, that's always interesting.

The staging was slightly different in that the dance scene takes place in a juke joint instead of all the action taking place at G&M's house, as it is in the play. For me, that made them all returning home back to G&M's house together all the more improbable because there's quite an ugly scene all around at the juke joint, like who the fork would go home with their hosts after that debacle but I guess drunkeness was supposed to explain that. Whatevs.

Good movie, solid performances all around. I liked it.

In the last couple of weeks I have watched:

Exit though the gift shop - Good, though I am still on the fence about the authenticity.

The Great Dictator - Such a great political comedy, was really brave of Charlie Chaplin to make this movie and release it when he did.

8 1/2 - Considered one of the greatest movies ever made, and I couldn't disagree with that statement.

Christmas Story - Such an awesome comedy, it never gets old

Sherlock Holmes - One of the better block busters I have seen in a while, great story, looking forward to the next one.

The universe of Keith Haring - Such a great documentary about one of the greatest artists of our time.

District 9 - One of my favorite sci fi movies of recent years. Interesting take our view of Aliens and the setting was perfect.

Watched Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Always a classic.

And Valhalla Rising. First 20 minutes=gore porn. The last hour+...confusing, drawn out, lame.

I just finished Penny Serenade (classic starring Cary Grant and Irene Dunne). It was alright, up to the end.

Spoiler: show
The woman writes a letter to the woman at the orphanage about how her husband has been distant since their adopted daughter died. We then find out it's only been a matter of days, and she's about to leave him (which is where the movie opens). They get a call from the orphanage woman offering them another child! And they just say, yeah, we'll take it, days after their daughter died! I just couldn't suspend disbelief for that. Really, 1940's - were children that easily replaced?

Over Christmas weekend, I watched: Timer, The Big Lebowski, Jesus Camp, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I liked all of 'em! (Also, it was a relief to finally knock Lebowski off my 'to-watch' list.)
