PostSubject: What movie are you watching?   Tue Jun 08, 2010 3:22 pm

What movie are you currently watching? Or what is the last movie you saw? (I can never resist "what are you watching/reading" threads) Smile


Alice in Wonderland - new one with Johnny Depp. Quite liked it, although it wasn't as good as I thought it would be. I think my expectations were too high.


C.R.A.Z.Y. - wonderful gay French film. A coming of age story - follows the life of a boy who grows up in the 70s and its about his life, his relationship with his father and brothers, trying to find himself, and also deals with spirituality/religion. I really loved this movie.

Zac (the main character) is the second boy from the right.

Blurb:
Quote :
There are five boys in the Beaulieu family -- Christian, Raymond, Antoine, Zachary and Yvan. But Zac (played by Emile Vallee and Marc-Andre Grondin) is the only one who's gay. That's why growing up in Montreal alongside his heterosexual brothers and his strict, emotionally distant father (Michel Cote) proves especially challenging for the blossoming outsider, who finds solace in the music of Pink Floyd, the Rolling Stones and David Bowie.


Preachers Kid - A case of the preview was better than the movie. This looked like such a great movie from the previews and it fell way short of what I was expecting. There were a few nice moments such as

but mostly it was kind of a let down.



Blurb:
Quote :
Yearning for new experiences, Angie (Letoya Luckett) abandons her preacher father, joins a touring gospel show and starts dating a handsome actor. But when her dreams of stardom stall, Angie struggles to maintain her faith, overcome her pride and find her way home. Inspired by the biblical parable of the prodigal son, this touching drama also stars Clifton Powell, Gregory Alan Williams and Sharif Atkins. Stan Foster writes and directs.

I'm not really watching any movies lately. I did download a could to my computer. I watched Star Trek, Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Sherlock Holmes, Kick Ass and The Hangover. I haven't watched the Hangover yet but i heard good things.

Kick Ass was a really great movie and totally not at ALL like I thought it would be. I mean it was way more violent and gorey than I imagined but I found that pretty refreshing actually.

I liked Iron Man 2 as well. More story less action than the first one, but I still really enjoyed it.

And Star Trek was just great. I haven't watched a whole lot of the original Star Trek series (I'm more of a Next Generation girl). But I really enjoyed what they did with the characters and its making me really want to watched the original series.

Haven't seen The Hangover yet, but I'm probably going to watch it sometime this week.

I loved the Star Trek movie. XD Never watched the tv show though.

Saw Grown Ups and Airbender in theater but they weren't that great. I'd like to go see Despicable Me. That one might actually be good.

Last dvd I saw was a swedish movie called The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Really great movie based on a book, and I thought Noomi Rapace did a fantastic job as Lisbeth.

Just saw Dispicable Me. It was supercute. Some great geek jokes, and background visual things. LOVED the minions!

Really want to see Dispicable Me. My sister's in town so maybe we'll take the kids.

Love Star Trek. My Mom loves Star Trek so that's where I get it from. Haven't seen Airbender yet. Got mixed messages from my friends about what they thought of it. I still want to see it. Heard good things about Grown Ups, but don't know if its my kind of movie. We'll see.

Saw Percy Jackson & the Olympians: Lightning Thief last night. It was ok. I've already forgotten most of what I saw. lol I have The Road and Igor to watch next. Hopefully those will be more interesting. Mostly, I've just been watching a whole lot of Doctor Who. Finished the most recent season, so now I'm doing a rewatch. Very Happy
