Movies - Recently Watched or Plan to Watch Soon


Recommended Posts

Watched Theatre Of Blood. 

Considering how much I like Vincent Price playing wacky serial killers, I was surprised I'd missed this one. It was good, but not as good as the Dr. Phibes ones (It lacked that surreal quality where it no longer matters, that much, that nothing makes much sense).

 

Also watched the latest take on Dr. Dolittle (My housemate has a thing for animal films). Yet another entry on the long list of films that are nowhere near as bad as other people say they are.

I tried to watch The Velocipastor, but could only force myself to watch the first 15 minutes or so before shutting it off.

 

I then watched Booksmart and really liked it.

I can't understand how anyone couldn't enjoy Velocipastor. That movie was so hilariously bad.

 

My wife and I spent the last 2 nights watching Watchmen by Snyder. Still a really good movie, at least coming from me, who wasn't a huge fan of the graphic novel.

Can't remember if I mentioned, we watched Onward a bit ago. It was enjoyable.  Watched Scoob! the other night. It was decent, but I don't think it was my wife's favorite Scoobi Do movie.

And of course we watched Empire Strikes Back on Friday night.  With painting SW Legion stuff, I spent a lot more time looking at costumes than I ever have before....

DH and I watched Artemis Fowl the other night.  I was surprised to see Judi Dench in elf ears.  The movie was ok, moved along at a fast clip, was lovely to look at, but I couldn't help feeling that a lot of story was missing. 

 

Next up is the Top Gun remake.

Never read the book or saw the new movie, but from what I have been hearing they fundamentally changed everything about the plot and characters to the point it shouldn't be called Artemis Fowl. Eesh

 

In the book it seems like he is the antagonist, and the lady elf is the very first lady elf police officer , while In the movie he is a protagonist and there are lady elf officers all over the place, apparently undermining her story arc

Watched Haywire with Gina Carano last night for the second time, we really enjoyed it. When we watched it the first time, it was a breath of fresh air in the action genre, since this was made after shaky cam had infested the action genre. The fight scenes are superb.

We sat up and watched Elvira's Haunted Hills last night. It had a few laughs, but mostly Peterson's schtick has not held up well over the years.  I would say the movie is about an hour and a half too long.

Saw it for the first time a few months ago and thought it was great. Reminded me of the action flicks of the 80s on which I grew up. She reminds me particularly of Van Damme in a weird way lol.

If there was one thing I would expect Carano to nail down it would be the fight scenes, and this movie did deliver on that.

I recently rewatched Bloodsport, and I have to say, the '80s fight choreography just doesn't compare to what it is today. I would still have to say that based on acting ability for a first movie (as I believe this was JCVD's first and Haywire was Carano's?) I have to give the acting edge to Carano. But again, decades apart, and I am still a sucker for any JCVD movie (Kickboxer still ranks among my favorites, the original, not the remakes he produced in the past 5 years).

Finished rewatching the original trilogy with Jedi last night.  Watched on in D+ since I finally signed up this week. Wish they had the option to pick which version you can watch....the post prequel changes I find jarring.

Not sure where we are going for next movie night....my wife wants a break from Star Wars (my binge watching Clone Wars probably isn't helping :poke:)

Watched another Gina Carano movie last night,  daughter of the wolf,  and I think the film makers missed a great opportunity.  There was only 1 hand to hand scene, and it was way too short. I think Carano did fine acting in it though. I was expecting a fun action movie, but found it kinda slow and boring. Mostly just a long trek though beautiful forest. Only saving grace was that the plot did take some unexpected turns.

Judging by the director's filmography (in various roles, not just directing) which includes Saw 2 through Saw 5, Outlander (movie, not the Starz series), Skinwalkers, it doesn't surprise me that it was underwhelming.

 

Seems you are heading towards a Gina Carano-fest on the movies? Have you seen Scorched Earth? It's been on my watchlist, haven't gotten around to it yet.

It's on our watch list, almost watched it yesterday instead.
