California & Movies
While in California last week, Xav and I spent a lot of time watching movies. Our movie marathon started with “The King’s Speech” (Xavier’s choice), followed by Disney’s “Tangled” (my choice), and ended on a Harry Potter Marathon (we decided to watch the first six movies currently available). I’m a huge fan of movies, and I’m always on the hunt for a good one, so any recs would be great. Here’s what I’ve seen recently:
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Um… Paul Newman? I heart him. He’s pretty, and that movie was pretty great. You should watch the “Making of” if you can, hilarious.
Scorched. I love this B-film! I saw it back in college, and it’s still as awesome and hilarious as ever. I highly recommend.
Monty Python and the Search for the Holy Grail. I’ve never seen this, and I tried to watch this over a glass of wine. Apparently, one glass isn’t enough, and I had to shut it off.
Lord of the Rings: Two Towers. So… I have still yet to see the entire LotR trilogy. I call them my “rainy day movies”. I’ve been saving the last two for my “rainy day” when I’m in desperate need for a pick-me-up and a guarantee-good-movie. I just watched the 2nd film, and oh man it’s good.
127 Hours. Well done, especially for a “based on a true story” film. It wasn’t a boring depiction of “here is what happened” at all, but more of a story with depth and development. The “gory” scene is probably gory, except I took off my glasses and plugged my ears, so I have no idea.
Heartbreakers. Funny French Film. I’m wondering who they’ll case to play the (inevitable) American remake.
Soon, I’m going to finally get to watch Whip it! I’ve been waiting forever to get to. That, and Little Miss Sunshine.
