What is the last movie you watched?
« on: February 05, 2017, 11:20:35 am »
Now that Netflix allows us to download some of their movies and tv shows I am finding the grind on the stairmaster in the gym in my buliding to be less of a grind and more of a "make msj's ass great again."

So, with the rule that I will only watch a downloaded movie when I exercise, I most recently watched "Memories of the Sword."   http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3054798/

It's a South Korean movie with the standard story of love and betrayal and a peasant rising up to become King but ... well I dont want to give it away. 

The fighting was fun to watch and story line was cool with women having important lead roles.

I haven't watched it yet, but I picked up a digital copy of Arrival. Sounds like it'll be the kind of movie that I like. We'll see.

Downloaded "The Last King" to my iPad as I continue my quest to "make my ass great again."

Why do I watch foreign subtitled movies when on the stairmaster? Because I'm an idiot. 

Anyway, fun low budget movie about a baby being born to the King of Norway around 1200 AD.

A group of farmers must protect the king baby from the evil brother usurper dude...

Enjoyed the use of skis to flee from danger and to engage in battle. 

Supposedly the baby became King by age 13 and ruled peacefully for 46 years.

Finally got around to watching Arrival. It's so awesome that anything I say about it would do it a disservice. Stop what you're doing and go watch it. Comes out on video Tuesday if that's your thing.

I am really looking forward to seeing it.

Trying to watch some of the Oscar flicks, so:

Manchester by the Sea - One of the most depressing movies I've ever seen.  Very realistic portrayal of basically the worst things that could happen to your average guy.  I don't really see any point to this movie other than realism for realism's sake, or showing tragedy for tragedy's sake in a very realistic way.  If you want to be depressed, please watch this.  If you want to enjoy your life, avoid killing 2 hours of it here.

Hell or High Water - Enjoyed this more, but not really worthy of winning "Best Picture".  Basically a story about some sheriffs chasing some shitty bank robbers around Texas.  Yee-haw.

I won't be watching La-La Land because I'm not really into the singing and dancing movies. *jazz hands*.

Oh and:  Bridges of Madison County - Tried to bring some romance into my life, but this flick didn't do it.  It's about a bored housewife who commits adultery with Clint Eastwood.  Call me old-fashioned but I don't find cheating on your husband and children very romantic.  Also features the most awkward on-screen kisses I'VE EVER SEEN.

"The economy has been relatively strong but Trudeau has chosen to run deficits year after year & has said will continue to do so well into the future.  This means we'll be in a worse & more vulnerable financial position when a recession hits when we HAVE to run deficits again." - Me, Oct. 3, 2019

It's only cheating if a man does it.  If a woman does it, she's just exploring her sexuality.

On Netflix: Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons.  http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2017561/

A fun, hilarious, disturbing, in your face Buddhist movie. 

Typical of Asian movies, no sentimentality. Children will get eaten, loves will die etc....

Saw 'Arrival'.  Definitely the best 2017 Oscar nominated flick I've seen so far.  Some chick friends of mine watched Hidden Figures, they said Arrival was better.

I tried to read The Handmaid's Tale quite a few years ago and for whatever reason - just couldn't get into it.  I'm watching the HBO series based on the book now.

It's very good.  I may try the book again, partly because Atwood apparently wrote a sequel to it now.

Don't watch it pregnant, I can tell you that :(

SEE IT on Netflix.  Really great all around.

I went to see "Mortal Engines" last night. The reviews were quite bad, and the box office has been disastrous, but the premise was just so completely bughouse loco that I had to see it for myself.

I quite enjoyed it. Normal people might want to chow down on some cannabis edibles before watching this, but for me, this was right up my alley. In a post-apocalyptic future, "the Ancients" (ie, us) have destroyed most of the earth with terrible weaponry. ("60 minutes was all it took.")  A thousand years in the future, cities on wheels roll about attempting to scavenge the resources their inhabitants need to survive. The largest of these cities-- London-- leaves the scavenging to others and just hunts down and eats entire cities. (I know, right? This is why I had to see this movie.)  London has already eaten almost everything in Europe and is growing hungry. She is pushing eastward, and Hugo Weaving has rebuilt an ancient superweapon that will allow London to break through the eastern lands' defenses and continue its rampage in Asia.


It stars Hugo Weaving as himself, Robert Sheehan as "Tom", a young historian/technologist, and Iceland's Hera Hilmar as "Hester", a would-be assassin.

I haven't read the book, but apparently Hester was supposed to be ugly. Like, really really ugly. Like, her face was supposed to look like a road map of scar tissue and veins or something like that. When the first trailers came out, there was some controversy, because Hester was visibly not ugly. She's this incredibly beautiful girl with a red scarf covering half of her face.  Fans of the book were angry that they had chickened out of making her ugly. There was even a hashtag on Twitter about it. #uglygirlsmatter or something like that.  I figured there'd be a big reveal. Like she pulls down the scarf to show Tom her real face and it's a mangled mess.  Nope.  She pulls down the scarf to show Tom her real face... and she's still incredibly gorgeous. She's an incredibly gorgeous girl with a scar on her cheek.

Hester: "THIS" (points at scar) "...THIS is what happens to people who stand in his way!"

Tom: "hmm.  Doesn't seem that bad, really."

"Won't you be my Neighbour ?"

The Mr. Rogers movie - I watched on Netflix and re-watched parts.  Anyone else watch it ?

I had a strange reaction to it.
