Movies - Recently Watched or Plan to Watch Soon

Recommended Posts

Movie pacing is one of the #1 differences I see in movies of different time periods. It is part of the reason that showing my wife movies from before 2000 or so that she has never seen can be hit or miss. Without the nostalgia, it becomes difficult for her to really enjoy some movies. This can definitely make people gasp about her reaction to some.

 

(Note: my wife watched few movies growing up. They were a TV family, whereas at my house we primarily watched movies while growing up.)

Finished watching The Rocketeer.

I can't believe I'd forgotten how much I like Jennifer Connelly. I could listen to her talk all day.

Now I have to find my copy of Dark City and watch her in that sometime soon.

 

Maybe it's because I recently watched the disappointedly over frenetically paced Amazing Spider-Man 2, but I really enjoyed the slower pacing of this movie.

Labyrinth? Requiem for a Dream? A Beautiful Mind?

Yes.

 

Hulk? 

Less so.

I still haven't cracked open the BluRay two pack I have of The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth so I look forward to seeing a young Miss Connelly in that.

I watched the Labyrinth with my kids a couple weeks ago.  They loved it.  They were amazed how everything was done with puppetry.

Own the boxed set DVD with The Dark Crystal and Mirror Mask.

From the musical, or the Disney stories, or the original fairy tales?

From the musical (which is from the original fairy tales).

 

Apparently the movie has cut out the Princes' reprise of "Agony" and the whole ending of Rapunzel and her prince. It sounds like a lot of that particular impact was lost.

I'm going to go eat dinner, then I'm going to watch The Watch on FX, when that goes off I'm going to watch Galavant on ABC.

When that goes off I'll be back online for a few hours (my Mom want to watch sister wives....shudder...).

Then at 2315 I'll catch the repeat of The Librarians on TNT.

 

 

Then I'll go to bed.

It's cold outsIde, there's no kind of atmosphere,

I'm all alone, more or less.

Let me fly far away from here.

Fun, fun, fun

In the sun, sun, sun.

 

I want to lie shipwrecked and comatose

Drinking fresh mango juice

Goldfish shoals nibbling at my toes,

Fun, fun, fun

In the sun, sun, sun.

Fun, fun, fun

In the sun, sun sun.

 

[... Do try to get it right.]

alas, my memory for such things is not quite what it should be. Probably because I sing terribly so never really bother to learn songs
