So I bought Fast & Furious 6 on Tuesday and didn't manage to convince myself to watch it today. I felt all the feels and yelled at the TV and started crying when Rome said grace at the end and mentioned fallen friends. Not full on crying, but about as close as I tend to get. Ugh. How can this effect me so?
psghayleaux: (car porn)
Finally made it to Fast 6. Other than a couple things that where pretty obvious I really liked it, stupid and improbable stunts and all. Let me tell you about it )

Over all I have so much squee for this movie. Hope to go see it again with R. on Friday. Sorry for the car rant at the end there.

So the new Star Trek movie, that was amazing was it not?Thoughts ) In conclusion when can I see the movie again? Also the audience I was with was great. Everyone was sort of talking amongst themselves the whole movie. And there where about 6 of us who where laughing at stuff no one else seemed to get, so those of us I would say where the long time Star Trek fans.

Not into work until 2, so I'm re-watching the first one again, just because. Next up after that the Fast & Furious franchise.

Back from Skyfall viewing number two. Yep still a great movie. I'm going to say top 5 Bond films, if not number 1 favorite. Ugh. So many great moments and just little touches.

If only it had been playing in a theater with more comfortable seats. Two viewings in four days have left my back in knots.
psghayleaux: moon lit night. (full moon)
Back from seeing the new Batman movie. I liked it but I don't think I liked it as much as the other two. But I will be going to see it again. And the end,ugh, it was both perfect and irritating because you know it'll never go anywhere. I want another one that picks up exactly where this one ended.

I would right more but I have to be up far to soon for work. Maybe tomorrow I'll right a better review.

So today, well yesterday now, was a busy day. Me and the guys were going to go up to Bangor and hit the casino, a pub and maybe a comic book shop. However me and the guys became me and a guy. So we decided to go to the casino in Oxford instead. Save Bangor for when everyone could make it. I only played a Star Wars themed game. Won no money. Was entertained any way.

Then I came home and got ready for movie number one of the day Magic Mike. Went with a girl I'm friends with at work. I don't think either of us could actually go see real live strippers based on our reactions, we'd be red and hiding. It was about what I expect. Lots of mostly naked men with a little bit of plot thrown in for good measure. Don't regret going to see it and have tentative plans for doing some other sort of girls night out.

Movie number two: The Amazing Spiderman. Not bad had fun. Managed to nearly make my friend belly laugh in the middle of a touching moment with a well timed comment about love bugs bitting. I'm tentatively interested in seeing where they'll go with the next one. I know the last group of Spiderman movies I only really liked the first one and never bothered to watch the third. I'm very glad I didn't see it in 3D because there were a couple scenes that just about made me motion sick as it was. I would say it's worth seeing if you like Spiderman and comic book movies. I'm not going to say how close it is or isn't because I'm not uber familiar with the source material.

Back from Prometheus. It was good but it didn't quite live up to the hype. It was a little heavy handed in places, and focused on stuff it didn't need to at times. And it had a bad case of FORESHADOWING a couple times. The first half was excellent, the second was a little rushed. But part of me still wants to see what happens next. Also need to re-watch Alien and Aliens.

I will say Micheal Fassbender gave the best performance of the movie. He was a tad thin for my tastes though. But most of the actors/actresses sort of had that super thin thing going on.

After the movie the group I was with basically came up with everything one could do to make the movie a lot better. It really would have only taken a couple tweaks and it would have been amazing.

Saw Snow White and Huntsman it wasn't as good as it could have been. The casting wasn't great. Well that and we referred to Chris Hemsworth as Thor the whole movie. And made jokes no one else thought were funny. A necrophilia comment/joke, by me, was the spit take comment of the evening. Which may be why no one outside our little group found us amusing. Oh well.

Speaking of movies, have last weeks movie review of MIB 3.

3rd Avengers viewing this evening. Still makes me squee. And my friend R. he is not afraid to squee either. This time around we discussed science boyfriends and how Clint and Natasha should kiss. And then we squeed some more.

And here my icon of a glowing speaker that sort of looks like the teseract, or however that's spelled.
psghayleaux: (fuck this place)
I'm going to trade 1 1/2 hours of work for 1 1/2 hours of Avengers movie. My movie buddies both have the 4th off and I'm supposed to work until 7pm. And they are planning to go to a matinée. Soo I'm trading shifts with the other service writer, don't even care that I'm loosing a little bit of pay, it's worth it and no one can convince me it isn't.

No, really that movie was freaking awesome. It didn't need to be in 3D but thats the only thing bad I have to say about it.

I will be reading the books starting about now. I've been meaning to, but I was reading some other stuff, which will now be shelved in favor of reading all of the Barsoom books.

I am actually disappointed that the chances of second one being made are very slim as I doubt this one will bring in enough money for them to make anymore.

The trailers really don't give the movie credit and that is really unfortunate. Its not just special effects and fighting there is a plot and a good one at that. I had no complaints about the acting or the dialog and I fully intend to buy it as soon as it's out of DVD.

And if the theater does non-3D showings later in its run I may go catch it again.

Went to see This Means War. By myself because no one wanted to see it with me. I actually really enjoyed it. It's not like its a masterpiece but it was good fun. And funny. Which was almost unfortunate because evidently no one else seeing it thought so. So I was laughing quietly because I would have felt awkward laughing as loud as I would have liked to in such a very quiet theater.

now for some thoughts )

I guess I would say if it looks interesting to you, go see it. It's a fun movie. You'll get a laugh or twelve out of it. Shirtless Chris Pine. Wet Tom Hardy. Reese Witherspoon mostly naked.

Now having seen both the Swedish and American versions of Girl with the Dragon Tattoo I have to say over all I liked the Swedish one better. Although I did enjoy how they worked some of the beginning of the second book into the end of the American one.

Eventually I'll finish reading the books as well, I finished the first one and I'm part of the way into the second one. The bad part about me having a kindle is now I'm as ooh shinny object about reading as I am with everything else. I'm probably party way into 5 or so books and at least one fic on the kindle right now. Eventually I'll finish something, I hope.

Just came back from the new Sherlock Holmes movie. Loved it. Everyone should go see it. Was only predictable if you've read all the stories and have good recall of them. So I sort of called the end, well at least the general idea of the end, about 20 min. when I thought about which plot was being followed. And I'm going to be giggling for days over large portions of the movie.

Things that made me giggle and everything else I loved... )

Okay not so much a review as a squee filled selection of the bits I like more than all the other bites even though I liked them too and don't want them to feel left out. While I know I have some sort of Sherlock related icon on my computer I don't seem to have one uploaded. So in honor of my car coming home from the garage I will use an icon of Jazz.

Saw Captian America the other night. It was fun, but not like omg good. Oddly other than one or two instances I didn't want to punch Chris Evans in the face, which is my usual reacton pretty much anytime he opens his mouth. Which is why I nearly didn't both to see it, but I was invited to go out with friends, and frankly I need to go out with friends more so I went. Now the wait for Avengers which I'm still sort of meh about.
psghayleaux: (glow)
Ended up going to see Thor last night. Was a decent enough movie. I probably would have enjoyed it more if it hadn't been in 3D. It did was a better experience than the first 3D movie I saw, but still not great. I got motion sick a little, I got a really bad head ache and if there was to much action on the screen I could focus on any of it. I'm sure that took something away from my movie viewing experience. Although if Chis Hemsworth had spent more time with out his shirt on it might have added something back in.

Fast Five

So I just saw Fast Five and now I want to go drive stupid fast in my car. Which is a fairly typically reaction for me. I enjoyed the movie, but thought it need more car stuff and less gun fights. Also its probably good )

So yes the movie was fun now I want to drive to fast. Or borrow Mom's car. She has a car like the one Mia drives at the beginning. Only with a wide body kit and a far cooler black paint job. The NSX's really look a lot better with the wide body kits actually.

Went and saw Paul last night. It was hilarious. And like a giant game of guess the movie reference. I was expecting it to be pretty good but it was even better than I thought it would be. Thinking about going to see Sucker Punch on Tue. T. doesn't want to see it so I'll go with R, who I went with last night. Movies with friends are always fun.

So I finally saw Avitar yesterday. It was pretty good, and also as I always maintained, Fern Gully in outer space. Right down to everyone living in a tree and the outsider falling in love with the next spiritual leader of the native peoples.
psghayleaux: (musically inclined)
Saw Terminator Salvation with T. last night. Quite enjoy it. There really wasn't anything I didn't like about it. Then when it got out we discovered we had just enough time for me to run to the ATM for money and go see Star Trek again, so we did. And I think I liked it better the second time around, and I caught some stuff I missed the first time around. All and all a most excellent evening.

Today is all crappy and rainy and I don't want to do anything, so I really haven't.
