    Double feature, Snow White and the Huntsman, and Clash of the Titans. Bad, bad, bad!! Charlize Theron's "British" accent sucked, Kristen S. sucked, the dialogue sucked, the whole movie was BAD!! And Clash of the Titans was even worse.

    I finally watched Liz and Dick. Lindsay is probably the most inconsistent actress ever. Her acting ran the gamut from great to horrible from scene to scene. Yes, that's right, I said great..she had her moments, just not nearly enough of them. I don't know a lot about Elizabeth Taylor, so I can't really remark upon the story etc.

    Flight. Not so good. Being a pilot, I couldn't get over how unrealistic the flying scenes are. There are millions of people who would be consultants for these movies. They could make the scenes realistic without sacrificing any of the cinematic quality.

    The Dark Night Rises - I don't recall watching the first one and didn't mind the second one, although the Batman voice made me want to punch Bale in the face every time I heard it.

    Anyway, there were some cool parts, but for the most part, I was thinking, "What the hell?!?!?!" If Batman's voice wasn't irritating enough, they make Bain talk weird. And Bains words didn't match his movements or the movements in his throat.

    Hated it.


    The Big Year - Jack Black, Owen Wilson and Steven Martin as bird watcher's who travel all over North America to see or hear the most amount of birds in on year to win the title of Birder of the Year.

    This movie wasn't funny at all. Mostly boring. I think I laughed once.


    The Watch - Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade who become a neighbourhood watch team after someone gets murdered. I don't know why, but I thought this movie was absolutely hilarious!! Vince Vaugh was just so funny. The plot was ridiculous, but something about this movie just made me laugh out loud throughout the entire movie.

    Emma. I absolutely love the story, but I hate that Gwyneth Paltrow was cast as Emma, and it makes me dislike the whole film. I wish I could find another - better - production of it.

    I loved Emma when it came out, but that was before Gwyneth became the Goop we all know and hate. I'd say it was time for another remake, but I think the pool of actresses for that kind of role is getting smaller and smaller.

    There was a later British production (might have been a series) with Jonny Lee Miller and that pretty blonde actress whose name escapes me but I think it's something like Ramona. I really liked that version. ETA: It was Romola Garais in this 2009 version Emma (TV mini-series 2009–*) - IMDb

    Saw an Australian movie "The Sapphires" about an Aboriginal girl group who toured Vietnam in the 60s. I loved this movie and cried at all the happy parts, it was one of those uplifting feel good movies but the girls did it tough.

    Also saw "The 5 Year Engagement" which was lame but worth it for the scene where they're at the dinner table and he's serving his home made honey mead to the brother in law. I was convulsing with laughter.

    I'll check out the Jonny Lee Miller/Romola Garai version of Emma. I can watch that streaming which is always nice.

    The Hobbit. I loved it. I discovered Lord of the Rings after they were on DVD so I'm happy I got to see the Hobbit in the theaters. I thought the casting was excellent and even though it was almost a three hour movie it went by really quickly.
    Plus, the scenery is just so beautiful.

    There was a version with Kate Beckinsale, too, though not a feature film. I only watched a bit of it.

    Clueless is my favorite version of Emma on film, I suppose. Hated Gwyneth in that role (and that was before I generally disliked her). She was so determined to be precious and adorable that she missed the gist of the character.

    This film is based on a novel which interweaves six stories. It makes a rather complex and at times confusing movie. If you don't like to think during a movie, forget it. If you find the idea of "reincarnation" silly, don't see it either. For me it was a beautiful film. It kinda reminded me of Magnolia. I will have to see it again to absorb it all. The actors play various characters and Hugh Grant looked like a totally different human being at times. That is part of the charm of the movie - you suddenly realize who the actor is. Anyway, if I say more I'll spoil it for you.
    I saw this and I wanted to like it so bad so I was disappointed at how much it sucked. Seriously, Halle Berry ruined that shit pretty good--her futuristic nonsense talk with Tom Hanks sounded like she was doing a horrible interpretation of The Color Purple. She needs to give back that Oscar.

    Too much noise and too many stories just jammed in there with a half-assed attempt at tying it all together. I did think that Ben Whishaw, who played the young piano composer, was captivating. I'd like to see him in more movies.

    At the end, as the lights came up there was that WTF tension in the theater with uncomfortable silence where no one knows how to react to the crapfest we had all just seen, which fell so far short of the way they sold this movie. I couldn't take it and finally said to my husband "What the hell was that shit? I blame Halle Berry."

    Ted. Turned it off half way through. It was so bad and I love Seth MacFarlane.

    Agora. I don't understand why it didn't get more press when it was released (2009, I think). Rachel Weisz is good and Max Minghella is completely and utterly gorgeous and I want him in my life. It's not a brilliant film, but some of the cinematography is stunning and it's entertaining enough.

    I finally rented Snow White and the Huntsman. If it weren't for Kristen Stuart the movie would have been alright. She is so unattractive and sour that I found nothing "fair" about her at all. It was a decent enough movie for nursing a hangover on a Sunday flopped on the couch. I'm pretty sure I even dozed off for a bit. But I will never pay to see K.S in anything ever again.
