My movies lately have consisted of Thomas And Friends. The glamorous life of a Dad.

I watch them after I can get them on TV or Amazon Prime. I watched the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo with Daniel Craig on Starz a while back and found the original Swedish version (dubbed) on prime along with the sequels. While the newer version is more polished, the original version and the sequels are pretty damn good too.

I also watched Thor recently which was pretty good too. Not as good as Captain America IMO but it had some good parts. Iron Man 2 was excellent, but another of RDJR's vehicles, the sequel to Sherlock Holmes, wasn't quite as good. It was certainly entertaining but felt almost too polished, the first movie has a more raw feel to it, grittier.

Anyway, as most of the stuff I watch is dated I won't bore you with more details.

Doomsday, I swear man, I'd go out with you for any night of heavy drinking, girls and general fun. But I would never go out to the movies with you.

Good grief!

I've been watching mostly sport and documentaries lately, sometimes sports documentaries, but the last movie I saw was Safe with Jason Statham:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1656190/

He's a great actor, but his movies sure are hit or miss. This one was fairly good though. Don't think I'd watch it a second time, just not that exciting throughout.

Hm, MiB 3 was the last good one I saw. Avengers before that was definitely a good popcorn flick. Heard nothing but bad things for Prometheus so skipped that one... I really hate films that completely ignore reality in favor of theatrics and drama.

Battleship was interesting... on one hand they went overboard in throwing physics and reality over the side (that anchor scene was just the most blatant). And Vets just happening to have shells + powder bags laying around for the cannons was taking some huge creative liberties they didn't even try to explain... but how they shaped the movie around the actual WWII battleship veterans (and Iraq vet starring as himself) making them the focus of the film redeemed it greatly.

Just saw a preview for Lincoln (not the vampire hunter one), how's that looking?

Yea Prometheus was actually not bad. Not the best but a hell of a lot better than the crap they call "Paranormal Activity" Battleship was good lol Not entirely sure how they call it battleship since its NOTHING like the game except like one part of the movie. But overall not bad. I have seen some stuff for the lincoln movie but not much besides a few commercials.

I still have Chernobyl Diaries, Lockout, MI Ghost Protocol (I guess, I don't care too much about that one), That's My Boy, The Raven, and The Expendables 2 to watch. Anyways most of those seem like they should be good.

Skyfall is about the only movie I want to go see in theaters that I can forsee in the near future. I am really excited to see the new Q.
