I know I am a day late and a dollar short, but, I finally saw Rachel is Getting Married. Dude, I didn't realize the lead singer from TV on the Radio acted in it. Cool. Btw, a great movie, but, not a fan of the live, naturalistic camera stuff. Great soundtrack as always. I mean, it is Jonathan Demme after all.

I just saw Avatar last night and it was my first 3D experience too, snow. I really enjoyed it. I had been wanting to go since it first came out and none of my friends would go with me - I'm the geekiest of them all so, yeah. I finally ended up going with my cousin who's in town from halfway across the country and we loved it. The 3D was amazing, I loved the story, I just thought it was phenomenal. I'm a sucker for a good action film though, so you know. I was completely floored by that movie. I totally want to see it again. Can DVDs be in 3D? I know nothing about this but I can't wait to own that movie.

MadameHooch, I totally want to see Leap Year! I think it looks really cute. I love both Amy Adams and Matthew Goode. It also takes a lot for me to hate a movie, so I'm pretty sure I'll like it. Is it corny that I want to see Dear John, The Last Song, and Letters To Juliet? I hope not. I don't really like Nicholas Sparks' books too much, but people seem to make them into films I enjoy.

Is Alice In Wonderland going to be in 3D? That would be crazy if it is!

I want to see Alice in Wonderland SOOO BAD - I'm not a huge Tim Burton fan, and I agree Chocolate Factory was a flub. I found it boring, but the coming attractions for Alice really have me excited. I hope it doesn't disappoint.

Is it corny that I really want to see Leap Year, too? It looks adorbs!

been going to the movies alot lately b/c it's too freakin cold to do anything else. this week i've seen Sherlock Holmes and Avatar (in 3D!!!). Sherlock Holmes was awesome, i luved it! Avatar kinda made my ass hurt b/c i had to sit for so long but i've never seen a movie in 3D before and i think it was a pretty good choice for my first time. i also got an added bonus of seeing the preveiw for Alice in Wonderland in 3D which looked completly awesome! i didn't have high hopes for that movie after the Chocolate Factory flub (i hated it) but it looks like it's gonna be pretty flippin' sweet.

I watched My Life In Ruins tonight and I thought it was really cute. I loves me some Richard Dreyfuss. He's such a cute little old man now! I loved My Big Fat Greek Wedding too, so I expected to like it. Even though MLIR was still going with the Greek theme I didn't find it was a copycat film or anything. I'd recommend it for a light, semi-funny romantic movie.

I saw Paranormal Activity last night. I have to strongly curse whomever decided to set most of the really scary suspense stuff in the bedroom, and mostly while the characters were sleeping. Bed is where I am supposed to be safe from monsters, for goodness sake! Of course, The Geek just dropped off the sleep, leaving me to hear all of the creaks and noises from our apartment and the hall outside. My building is pretty quiet, but somehow the noise from our hall and stair case always seems to reverberate through our foyer. More than once, I have thought that someone was trying to open my door when it was my across the hall neighbors. So, with that already being the case, the usual small amount of noise sounded like the hounds of hell to me last night. blink.gif

The movie is a fun time. Not gorey, just suspensfull with moments of real fear. As I understand it, much of the script was improvised, which might have been a weakness in some points when Micha, the male lead, was clearly struggling to know what to say. But, I do love a good underdog story and this movie is that for sure. Anyone else see it?

god bless the lounge for being an outlet for my random thoughts!

today, i watched marley and me. what a piece of shit. owen wilson looked like he was phoning it in. no, it was more like he was saying his lines, and then subtly shrugging to the audience, saying, "yeah, i know, i know..."

I saw Ponyo the cutest movie I've seen in a long time. I loved that when the movie ended some little kid started dancing to the credits song hardcore style like moshing and silly walks. I saw zombieland i liked it but now i cant stop thinking if that ever happened and how screwed i would be I've even took some zombie survival quiz.

I'm getting in on the Zombieland love. I saw that movie and it was exactly what I needed. Zombie's and a hilarious Woody Harrelson. I laughed so much.

I don't see this film as being mainstream, but, I thought I would mention it here. I really want to see the movie Precious. It has been getting alot of press. Mo'nique looks like she gives an amazing job acting in this film.

Damn! I cried just watching the trailer for that movie!

i saw zombieland, and it was a lot of fun. a coming of age wif zombies, and a funny script. there is a fantastic little surprise in the film that you don't see coming. so, don't watch the previews or commercials (they give too much away anyways), just go see it. it's almost as much fun as shawn of the dead.

I enjoyed Julie and Julia. It was really refreshing to see a movie with TWO female leads that 1) weren't total idiots, 2) weren't trying to get a man, 3)they weren't trying to keep a man. That said, I actually liked Julie Powell's story. I found her to be pretty human and I related with her more times than I probably should have. I thought Meryl Streep was wonderful as Julia...she sounded EXACTLY like my nana though. I went with my mom and we kept laughing about it.

I agree. I thought it should have been more Julia Child, and less Julie Powell. I guess it would have been a different movie. I loved both of them so much in [iDoubt[i]. The movie did make me hungry though. Yet, it wasn't a great foodie movie like [i]Big Night[i] or [i]Like Water for Chocolate[i]. There should have been more food porn. Also, how JP didn't gain about 30 pounds is beyond me.

I saw Julie and Julia tonight. It was entertaining, and Meryl Streep was lovely as Julia Child, I forgot about Meryl as the actress, even as I couldn't believe that Julia Child spoke in her trilling voice all the time. I liked the scenes with her co-authors of the cookbook and getting the book published. By comparison, Julie Powell was pretty obnoxious, and an unlikable character. She doesn't have to be perfect, but her constant whining and treating her cooking project as a chore was irritating.
