Just watched Changeling (1980). It was amazing and thrilling!

Dr. Zhivago (1965) - Not my typical movie, but I saw the whole thing, and I could not get parts of it off my mind (some great scenes and some "errors" maybe  in the film itself). Maybe I am a "Closet "Romantic"?

I am so behind... I finally watched Inception this weekend. ZOMG FABULOUS!!!

The hubs and I went to see Source Code as well. I really liked it, I thought it was great. The hubs was so bone tired that he passed out during the movie.  :(  But said the parts he saw were great. LOL

Also watched Easy A on Netflix instant watch. Loved it! It was so cute, and had great 80s movie references.

I saw Thor last weekend and thought it was good. I've always loved mythology, especially Norse mythology and this take on it was interesting. There are some truly funny moments and all in all it's a movie where you just sit, munch popcorn and don't think too much. Just what the doctor ordered for me :D :D :D  In some parts it has a kind of.... computer-game-ish flair. Didn't bother me at all, but I guess people are different when it comes to that. Thor is a Marvel-based movie and dealing with an interpretation of Norse Mythology, so I didn't go there expecting something terribly realistic. But I heard a few people complain about how outlandish it all was. huh! I think they didn't really know what kind of movie this was supposed to be, hm?

Although I gotta say every book I ever read on the topic had Heimdall a typically Norse-looking guy, not dark-skinned as in the movie :D

I saw Limitless a few days ago. A good movie with non-stop pacing and an interesting concept with a twist at the ending.
Yum...Bradley Cooper's eyes are so hypnotically intriguing! I could just melt right into those beautiful blues.  DrOOl

Well, I noticed the 3D effect (but the impact of it also depends on where you sit in the room) but it was not as good as with Avatar, for instance.

Just saw Tangled for the first time and thought it was so cute.  (Evil witch was kinda scary).  Going to rent Shutter Island this weekend, can't wait!

I did too Yala. I even bought the book "The Art of Tangled" (being into art {making & appreciating it}). Small screen for now! :(

No but I know a few people who did and they liked it.  I did want to see it but never got the chance.  I will be renting it when it gets released on DVD.

Saw Shutter Island last night with a few friends and it wasn't what I expected.  DiCaprio has turned into an amazing actor and the film itself was good, but just like the Changeling with Angelina Jolie, I wish I knew more about it before I watched it so I could prepare myself (of'course that would have ruined the movie - oh well).  Good movie but don't know if I would recommend anyone seeing it.
