I admit it. I’m a bit blogged out. I blog here, at my own blog, at Shapeshifters, and have already done half a dozen guest spots elsewhere this month alone. Today…I got nothin’. So I thought we’d chat movies, since we haven’t done that for a while.
What have you seen lately that was great? What are you looking forward to?
Just saw Angel & Demons last weekend. I went expecting it to not excite me. I read the book, and found the story awesome (even better than the DaVinci Code) but for some reason didn’t think they could pull it off in the movie. They didn’t. At one point I told the hubby that I think the soundtrack wants us to believe this movie is more exciting than it actually is. The hubby liked the movie. Go figure. (Though I admit Ewan McGregor did provide some nice sexy priest fantasies.)
Terminator was another disappointment. Well, I admit, I went just for Christian Bale. But you know, Sam Worthington, the guy who plays the terminator, actually stole that movie from Bale. He was awesome. Overall, I thought the movie so-so. If you’ve watched the other three movies, you’ll want to see it just to keep up with the timeline. But the timeline! It loses me every time. 😉
I’m looking forward to a few this summer:
Public Enemies: Johnny and Christian. Need I say more? I have a feeling there will be a lot of fainting women at this one, or heck, this may be the movie that sparks a wave of summer conceptions, which would put those birthdays right around…next March. Keep an eye on the birth announcements. Hey, I’m just sayin’.
Transformers: Just action/adventure movie awesomeness. And I’ll even admit to my girlcrush on Megan Fox (but now, she’ll never replace my crush on Angelina). This one looks great, and like it’ll fulfill my need for explosions and non-stop action.
GI-Joe: Yes, I admit it, this one looks good. Can you tell I’m all about the action in movies?
Cheri: With Michelle Pfeffier and the nummy Rupert Friend. Oh, my love for costume dramas, and witty romantic period pieces will be met this summer! I just hope it plays all over so I don’t have to trek ‘downtown’ to find it at the only theater that gets it.
Food, Inc.: Can’t wait for this one. It’s getting awesome reviews. I want to bring the hubby along because he’s not convinced that 95+% percent of the food we eat is contaminated with hormones and chemicals and all sorts of stuff we should not be putting in our bodies. It’ll be a struggle to get him to go along, but I am determined. Michael Pollan, who wrote The Omnivore’s Dilemma was involved in this one. Should be enlightening.
The Hurt Locker: I dare you to watch the trailer for this one and not move to the edge of your seat in anticipation. It is a war movie, which I usually avoid like the plague, but this one focuses on the bomb squad. Man, it looks suspenseful, tense, and just plain exciting. I’m there!
The Brothers Bloom: I missed this one because I think it snuck into that one downtown theater for maybe a weekend. Anyone seen this one? I thought it looked like it would be fun!
Easy Virtue: The time period is…I don’t know…1920s? Features an American heiress marrying into a British family, and they all snub her. I’m intrigued.
