Movie #20: Waitress

August 26, 2010

Viewed on my television, thanks to the library!

Oh man. Just… oh man. Flat characters, painful dialogue and accents. The only saving graces of this movie are hot Nathan Fillion and funny Andy Griffith, but it wasn’t enough, by a long shot. This movie was so bad that it upset me. Also, I don’t like movies where it’s basically okay to have an affair because your husband is a terrible, one note baby. Though I would probably jump on Nathan Fillion, too.

(1 of 5 stars, and it’s all for you, Andy G)

Movie #19: El Amor Brujo

August 26, 2010

Viewed on my television, courtesy of my very small DVD collection

It’s just not been good watching for me lately. Nothing has really grabbed me. I feel like a movie that involves Flamenco dancing should get a good reaction from me, and I love some of Saura’s other work, but this just left me cold. Bummer.

Movie #18: Dirty Harry

August 26, 2010

Viewed on Trevor’s laptop via DVD

This is a classic, right? It was fun to see San Francisco in a different era, but vigilante justice just isn’t my thing. “Shoot first, ask questions later” kind of chaps my hide. I guess I’m just a procedural girl, I’ll go back to my “Law & Order” and leave movies like this to my boyfriend.

Movie #17: Inception

August 26, 2010

Viewed in an actual theater*

I liked it, I didn’t love it. It was beautiful to watch, and it secured my crush on JGL. There just wasn’t ENOUGH mind-twisting, and I don’t think it’s something I’ll want to watch again, though I am enjoying reading theories about the movie.

(3 of 5 stars)

  • Side note: I wish I remembered to go to theaters more. I really enjoy the experience. If the audience is polite, and there are no children. Or cell phones. Okay, now I remember why I don’t go to the theater more.
