Movie Update

Last seen
The Men Who Stare at Goats: Loved this film, would see again. Brilliant cast (Ewan McGregor, Jeff Bridges, Kevin Spacey, George Clooney).
The Box: I'm a bit more unsure about this one. I didn't think it was terrible but I did think it was great.
The Fourth Kind: Same as The Box.
Antichrist: Whoa. This film...very heavy, disturbing. Currently in my top ten of the year.

Up next
The Boat That Rocked [Pirate Radio]: Seeing tomorrow.
New Moon: Seeing for the lulz.

I bought Star Trek on DVD today and I've been watching it again :')...though, I should be writing. Very behind on NaNoWriMo, eeep.

I really want to get better about updating here again, so I'll try to get back to posting a few times a week.

I'm so, so sorry for not updating or commenting.
    Summary of my world lately:
  • Movies: I saw The Proposal and it wasn't anything mind-blowing, but it was cute. I'm seeing Little Ashes on Monday. I hated Land of the Lost.
  • Books: I bought A Home at the End of the World and Cocaine Nights. I've only read half of the former and haven't heard of the latter, so, this should be interesting.
  • TV: Three more episodes and I'll have caught up with Heroes. :')
  • Life: My dog was doing better but, due to circumstances I don't feel like recapping, is unwell again. I've been hanging out with friends a lot: lazy summer nights, full of games and surprises and jokes and random chatter and nonsense. I should be more stressed out about school than I am, but can't bring myself to care at the moment.
I really do hope to become active on here again eventually, but feel free to add me on LiveJournal ([livejournal.com profile] grindhouseblues).

Have any of you done this? There are 50 movies from the last 20 years hidden in a picture. Some of them are obvious, but some I got help with. It's rather challenging! I still need seven more, but I'm determined to figure them out on my own.

So, Star Trek: I didn't immediately like it while I was watching it, but now that I've had a couple days to reflect on it, I think I'd see it again. It's not my favorite of the year or anything, but overall, it was entertaining.

My favorite thing about holidays is USA Network uses them as an excuse to have House marathons, which they did yesterday, even though they already had one on Mother's Day. Still...eight hours of House? I'm not complaining! They played a couple of my favorites.

Welcome to newer friends, and if you would please fill this out when you have a spare moment, I would very much appreciate it!

This isn't the kind of film a lot of people would like or even see, and it wasn't flawless, but it really got to me.

In the summer the local indie theatre has "Midnight Madness" where every weekend they resurrect a movie and show it at midnight, and they're doing Hedwig and the Angry Inch August 14 & 15. To say I'm excited would be an extreme understatement. It's one of my top ten favorites of all time.

I saw Terminator Salvation today and actually really enjoyed it. I'm seeing it again perhaps on Tuesday, partially for the epic awesomeness that is Sam Worthington. ♥ He was great (and so were the others). I'm so excited for him, being in such a big movie and actually getting credit for it, since he's not very well-known. I've only seen six of his movies; they're so hard to find here.

I saw Night at the Museum 2 at midnight last night and thought it was just okay. I'm finally seeing Star Trek tomorrow. I have no idea if I'll like it or not.
