We had a thread a while back just like this by Kayla (ergh I miss her so much) and it's been gone for a while now. This probably won't stay for long, but I wanted to remake this thread because I've been watching a lot of movies lately.
-What was the last movie you watched?
-How was it?
-What was it about?
-Would you watch it again?
Last night I watched Little Children, which starred Kate Winslet, Patrick Wilson, and Jackie Earle Haley.
UGH it was heartbreaking and beautiful. It was about two parents who were not satisfied with their lives and developed a friendship that turned into something more. There was another story in the movie about a man who was just released from prison and is trying to get his life back on track, but a police officer won't let him. I would definitely watch it over and over again.
Hmm. Never noticed this thread before. Sorreh.
I also miss Kayla, and several of her threads.
Coincidentally, the last film I saw also had Jackie Earle Haley in it: Watchmen. I love it. It is based on the DC Comics epic, a dystopian imagining of a realistic world (circa mid-1980's) with superheroes and supervillians, and the blurry line between them. Yes, I shall gladly rewatch it, which is why I own it on DVD.
Balzac and The Little Chinese Seamstress.
I'd even read the book, but it still managed to make me cry.
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
It was wonderful.
Doctor Jones, a kid with a chip on his shoulder, and a crystal skull.
Yup. In fact, this was at least my third time watching it.
Iron Man 3. I thought it was great. Would definitely watch it again.
It was good, but I did not enjoy it as much as I did Daniel Craig's other 007 movies.
It finally addresses Bond's parents.
The last movie I watched, I watched on Friday (now it's Weds.) with my sister, was The Great Gatsby (the newest one). After reading it in class, I wanted to see it really bad so i actually went to Regal to see it (I never go to the thearters). For those who don't know, The Great Gatsby is about a man named Jay Gatsby. It is written from the point of view of his neighbor as he remembers his summer; looking back on his time with Gatsby. I would most deff. watch this movie again and would advise others to watch it if they haven't. It's a good movie and a great book.
I really enjoyed the previous movie with Robert Redford and Mia Farrow. One of the few movies you could watch and read the book at the same time...allmost exactly alike. ;)
Looking forward to this one. Hope I won't be dissapointed.
The Rum Diary starring Johnny Depp
I enjoyed it.
It was based on a semi-autobiographical novel written by Hunter S. Thompson.
Yes, I would watch it again.
Zero Dark Thirty
Oh my freaking...wow. I loved it. A lot. A really really whole lotta lot.
The series of events which followed 9/11 and culminated in the death of Usama bin Laden.
Yes, lots of times.
I'm gonna cheat and put a TV show instead of a movie.
Last night Game of Thrones wrapped up its third season; the fourth won't come out till March 2014 or so.
MY HEART IS BREAKING OVER THIS SHOW OKAY. I became way too emotionally invested in it; I've been making sad little playlists based off characters all day.
If anyone has TV recommendations that'd be great. It's gonna be a long time till 2014.
One of the coolest movies I have seen in a long time. It has lotsa awesome music in it.
The 24hr story of the employees of an independent record store rebelling against the seemingly inevitable buyout of their store by a soulless national chain.
Again, and again, and again. :D I now own it.
