Okay, so what movies from the year 2011 have you seen? Want to see?
Well, so far that I can remember I've seen:
Get Low starring Robert Duvall about a hermit in the 1930's who goes about having a funeral party BEFORE his death. I'm not quite sure what I was expecting but despite my fandom for Duvall, I was disappointed in this movie.
Last night I went to theater and saw the movie Hanna. Saoirse Ronan was good in the title role but otherwise this movie was a let down as well. Cate Blanchett's southern accent was distracting, the quick cut camera editing was annoying and when the reason why everyone wanted Hanna was revealed, all I could think was that they kind of ripped off the comic book back story of Captain America a bit.
Other movies I'm looking forward to seeing are: Green Lantern, Thor, Conan The Barbarian, Fast Five and Beautiful Boy. The last one is about parents who hear about a shooting on a campus where there son goes to school, only to find out it was their son who did the shootings. I saw the trailer on On Demand and it looked intense.
Like the first one was any good.
I watched The Hunger Games: Catching Fire last night. I liked it and it was much better than the first movie.
Never saw the first one. I could watch it for free on amazon prime, but if there's no blood, I ain't interested!
Ended up borrowing a co-worker's Kindle thingy to watch the Veronica Mars movie that was released in theaters and On Demand today.
Big fan of the TV series, HAD to see the movie. It was pretty darn good for the fanbase, likely not OVERLY welcoming to complete newbies. Not essential to know the characters but it would help. Opening scene recap helps a bit.
Can't wait to own this on DVD, and a prose novel set after the events of this movie is due out March 25th.
I saw the Denzel Washington movie The Equalizer today. It was okay but too long.
