Currently Watching - popcorn anyone?

Recommended Posts

I saw Driving Lessons last night.

It has a bit of the old "Harold & Maud" flavor and is a really good film.

Takes the piss out of a hypocritical christian family.

I watch "The Savages" the other night,brilliant acting,an irony of life type movie that is usually the domain of french movies,funny in a droll sort of way...recommended.

Then saw "Baby Mama",I know it's a chick flick but I actually enjoyed it,well scripted and acted....If you are going to get dragged to a "chick flick"make it this one,some of the scenes with Steve Martin as the new age company owner are quite funny and you actually feel an empathy with most of the characters.

The Painted Veil-

A somber slow silent soliloquoy sadly short of substance.

Boy meets girl- girl plays up-boy carks it.

Chick flick

Based on a Somerset Maugham short story.

Beautiful photography in that movie,CHINA at it's most picturesque.

Much of a Muchness...as was ATONEMENT.

Great book, film did it justice.

Good PQ too for SD.

Hellboy 11

"I'm not a baby, I'm a tumor"

Plenty of laughs and action for those who enjoy this genre.

Great sound and effects- the baddies are REALLY bad.

Their singing when they are pissed is as bad as mine!!

Righteous Kill.

New De Niro and Pacino cop movie.

I was looking forward to this after the truly abysmal Pacino movie 88 minutes.

Well,it could of been better,it wasn't bad,just sort of bland.

I don't know if it's because I watch a hell of a lot of movies that I knew what was the supposed amazing revelation at the end of the movie after about 15 min in,or that I thought both actors had lost interest,particularly Pacino,during the shoot.

Wait for the DVD is my advice.

Ive just finished watching the first (and only) season of this delightful musical comedy show. Now, I am the last person to advocate anything from across the dutch, mainly because of that atrocious accint, I really, really cant stand ut.

But, this show is brilliant, and I really hope they do a 2nd season. Some of the songs, although they are comedy based, are bloody great. I will chase down their music CD for sure.

Flight of the Conchords

I appear to be alone in the 'type' of movies I've watched recently.........

  • Stop Loss (Brilliant theme)
  • Body of Lies (not bad)
  • In Bruges (clever)
  • Mamma Mia (best movie of 2008 so far)

Anyhoo............just thought I'd mention a few.

Am currently halfway through Iron Man on DVD........haven't yet 'heard' the part that destroys speakers and subs though.

G'day,

I watched season one and season two of the TV show Dexter.

Disturbingly good.

It's gold, Jerry. Gold. And season 3 has just started in the US, but FIIK when Ten will be airing it, considering that season 1 has only just finished here.

Also gold: Season 1 of "Heroes" (although it has really nuked the fridge now).

Yeah I enjoyed heroes season 1. May have jumped the shark but I am a sucker for anything with super powers in it :rolleyes:

I thought season 1 of Heroes was beaut because it was obvious that the story was not being made up as they went along, and it had a rare combination of good plots and internal consistency (like "Life On Mars" on ABC).

But season 2 (and what I have seen of season 3 so far) is just toss IMHO with none of the good points from season 1.

I would agree its not quite as good as season 1, but I think it depends how you watch it. If one were to watch the episodes once a week as they are aired on telly then you get so lost, and you lose touch with all the subtle things that happened the night (week) before.

We sit down and watch 3 or 4 episodes in a hit, full immersion, then you can tie things in properly.

Also the writer's strike would have done the show no favours. LOST suffered the same fate.

Cheers,

Jake
