    Yes, all of what you said, and it was so boring and went on forever. I didn't think it was the amazing movie so many people said it was.

    I think Drive is majorly overrated too. Loads of people I know love it, but I think that's because they think it makes them look 'cool'.

    Jade - you definitely have to watch The Princess Bride!

    The Princess Bride is a must see. There are so many great one liners....'Have fun storming the castle!' and on and on. Worth an hour plus of your lives.


    We watched 'Judy Moody and the not bummer summer'. Had some funny moments, but was overall pretty boring. Even my 5 & 8 yr olds weren't super interested. Was fun to cuddle up together w/the fire going & popcorn on a cold night!

    Red State on Netflix. It was a Kevin Smith film, but not his usual fare. Fairly disturbing. Not his finest work.

    The Ex-Mrs. Bradford. It was okay...very Thin Man, only without Myrna Loy. I like Jean Arthur in the right role, but I guess I'm just too big of a Nora fan to really get into a different 'wife' for William Powell with such a similar story line.

    Let me also add that I hated it. To me it was boring, uncool and Christina Hendricks wasnt used nearly as much as she should have been. I mean she was in the film what, 10 minutes tops?

    I thought it tried really, really hard to be the coolest movie ever and it did nothing for me. I had pretty high expectations when I sat down to watch it, because so many people loved it so much.

    Maybe it's one of those love it or hate if films?

    I hated that movie so much, I thought I was going to explode. I watched it on Netflix and I had to keep going back to imdb to make sure that Kevin Smith was the director. And I usually love him. I guess it was supposed to be satire?

    I don't get the Drive hate. I thought it was a fantastic movie and the soundtrack was one of the best things about it. No love for the 80s, I see... Also, Albert Brooks was amazing, he was the one who stood out the most after Gosling to me.

    My films:
    At the cinema I saw The Bourne Legacy. Kinda disjointed and boring at parts but Jeremy Renner is hot. Worth it just for him.

    dvd: The King of Comedy
    Can't believe the boyfriend had never seen this classic. Even better than I remembered it.
    What if Superman is psychotic and everyone can see that he's Clark Kent but they just play along not to set him off?

    I didn't love it and think it was the best thing ever but I didn't hate it. I thought it was a very good movie. The music is pretty awesome and goes with the kind of 80s vibe the whole film has. I appreciated the film visually - it is stunning and even the most violent scenes are unabashedly stylish and beautiful.
    But the main characters are definitely hollow. And in a way, I think that was the whole point. To me the entire movie seemed like an exercise in making the most stylish and visually appealing version if your typical car-chases-and-violence-and-girls action movie. An artsy version of your typical low budget action flick.

    And it was definitely not carey mulligan's best role. If you want to see what she's really capable of, check out 'an education' and 'never let me go'.

    We left the rock today and saw Seven Psychopaths. It was a bit long (I'm too hyper to sit in a theater for 2 hrs) but overall I really liked it.

    I definitely appreciated the film visually, too -- my friends have gotten on my case about liking movies that are style over substance (though I don't agree with them, I like what I like). But maybe that's where the director was going with Drive? A sort of satirical take on action movies? I think I built the movie up so much in my head, when I finally saw it, it was a huge letdown. I thought the characters were hollow and the plot was slow, and I kept waiting for something to happen and it never did.

    Also agree that Carey Mulligan is capable of a better performance than that one. I loved An Education - strangely, I thought that movie would be boring, but I ended up loving it a lot. Never Let Me Go is on my to-see list.

    I saw Seven Psychopaths. I loved it. It's not quite as tautly directed as In Bruges, but it was still a great movie.

    I can't with this one. I read the plot description and comments on imdb and I just can't, and I've watched some uber disturbing films in my day, like Irreversible and Henry, Portrait of a Serial Killer. But those were about adults. I'd love to try this one maybe someday when I'm not so sensitive to kids.
