september 2012: films  




Dark Shadows (2012)
It was an odd film- a classic Tim Burton, as a fan would say. Personally, I wasn't amazed, but I thought it had its funny moments. Oh, and Eva Green's character? You're going to love her: one of the strongest female leads I've watched in a film lately! Mainly because of this.

Conan the Barbarian (2011)
This film begun quite nicely with a decent storyline and some great quotes and life lessons (ex. no man should live in chains). However, very soon it turned into another predictable action film with mythological origins/concept. Could it be because films like that have too many writers (this had 3- 3, I can't even agree with myself on where a story is going) and are meant to be blockbusters (watch, shallow, the end.) that they don't really think about the story that much? Also, was I the only one who found Tamara one of the worst written female characters in like ever? She begun as this strong, mysterious woman and ended up doing exactly what Conan told her (because he's the man, you know?). She was so shallow; just a love interest for him...

Horrible Bosses (2011)
God, what is life? What is wrong with the world? What is wrong with me for not breaking the television while watching this... thing. 7/10 on imdb? Really? This wasn't even remotely funny. I can't even say that it was one of this ridiculous films that can once in a while make you smile. It was boring, pointless and shallow. All I could say after it was that America has ruined the western civilization. But more on that later, on a post that has nothing to do with entertainment.

Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003)
A classic: if you haven't watched it yet, do so. It's not the film of the decade, but it's quite fun- if you like this sort of thing, that is.

The Cold Light of Day (2012)
This is a film that copies everything there is to be copied from films of this kind. Its not horrible, per se- it's only a bit boring.

 
 
Current Mood: blahblah

That is a sad movie post. :( Nothing really amazing there. Have you seen Mask of Zorro? I was watching it recently and all the swashbuckling awesomeness came flourishing back to me. :) Yay.

I may watch Conan the Barbarian - just for Jason Momoa's abs.

Heeeey!

Yes, it was. I was very disappointed with movies last month. That's probably why I didn't watch any in October:P Long live the TV shows!

And of course, I've watched Mask of Zorro- more than once. The first time I was so excited- I'd loved it! Now I really enjoy watching it:D

Haha, that's totally a valid reason to watch Conan:P

TV shows! Yes - Merlin! Are you watching? Excellent beginning methinks so.

Yes, yes! Is it okay to like Mordred so very much despite Merlin's vision? He's just so conflicted!!!
Missyredenzione on October 23rd, 2012 02:48 pm (UTC)
Yes it is, currently he hasn''t done anything too nasty. I really want Arthur to find out about Merlin!!! It's about that time! AND OMG - please can someone actually give me a legitimate reason for why Morgana hates Arthur, you're not sinking my ship here!
Angie: morgana: love.is.painxxx_angelin_xxx on October 26th, 2012 12:02 pm (UTC)
Well, I really want someone to find out about Merlin! I'm glad Mordred knows! I wanted Gwen to find out- in the last season's finale, I thought it was pretty obvious but nooooo. And yes, I'd love to see Arthur's reaction. And Morgana's, of course. How convenient that Aithusa doesn't speak...

And, oh poor baby! I think they sunk this ship a long time ago. But yes, even though I can understand why she hates him, I'd like to see more scenes between them- and I don't know, a conversation, perhaps?
