All I can say about the 5 above is that I loved Babel
. Somehow I was able to get my younger son to watch most of it with me. This would usually be quite the undertaking, but given that his brother was playing History Channel: Civil War
and naturally using the TV in their room for that purpose and also he (my younger son) is not allowed on any PC (he's grounded) naturally the living room (where I was watching Babel) would be a place to relax and chill with dad. I think he enjoyed most of it, although there were a few parts that bored him (being 12 and all).
In any case I was quite impressed, and it certainly kept my attention. There were so many performances worthy of note (Brad Pitt the maligned
certainly gave one of them). Do see this somehow, you will not regret it.
was horrible (even though I did not watch so much of it, having hated the first two, senseless gore-fests)
was bearable, and even tho I love Adrien Brody and consider him one of the greatest actors in Hollywood, I just didn't care for this film. It was flat and boring from my perspective. Essentially it was the true-ish
story of the untimely death of original Superman (of early TV fame) George Reeves (played by Ben Affleck) and the investigation which followed. Quite the scandal back in 1959 from what I am led to believe.
---The Dark Room
was a B-Movie, and while it certainly wasn't the worst I've seen (great twist at the end), it was still a badly (naturally) made B-Movie. nuff.said
---The Devil wears Prada
-- I really had no idea what this film was about when I rented it apart from that many people (including critics) were raving about it. Yea ok Meryl Streep (as you would suspect) is a phenomenal actress, and her performance was true to form, but still. I didn'tenjoy it so much, not being so much into fashion or that industry. If you are tho, by all means check it out, you might possibly enjoy it. I.didn't
Monday yet again, sheesh. Seems time does fly quickly.
Today marks 1 whole week sans
I feel the momentum beginning ...
ya know yesterday
I posted about being sort of upset about the MCR
show Saturday night, and I did receive an anonymous comment (most likely from the ex-wife) pointing out that the most important thing to consider is that my son enjoyed the show and I should celebrate the fact that her bf was kind enough to buy those pitt tickets for him. I will say this, he/she/it has a point. The most important thing is that he had an amazing time. Hell I did too
. So who cares then right? After all they were fracking incredible
Hope everyone has a decent Monday, no worries it will be over in an instant!
