People who have known this blog ever since it’s beginnings might have realized that I write a lot less about movies than I used to.
That’s basically because I see less movies now than I used to last year.
Last year, we were addicted to movies, we’d watch 2 to 3 movies a day, and believe me, I’m not overdoing it.
Anyway, ever since we bought a receiver and have access to satellite channels, we’ve been renting less movies and watching more shows and news.
But still being a cinema fanatic, I have to watch a minimum number of movies every week 😛
Among the movies that I saw lately, that are worth mentioning, are the following:
– Something’s Gotta Give: This is a really nice movie. Jack Nicholson as always is great and his sense of humour is so cool. Diane Keaton rocks and is amazing.
It’s a nice love story with a good dose of comedy in it. I really enjoyed it.
– Mona Lise Smile: This is a nice movie, but then again it has Julia Roberts in it. How could it be otherwise?
It’s a nice story, set in the 50s, about women in society and how they should not see their roles just as homewives taking care of their husbands, but should try to go on with their lives and their careers.
– Duplex: This is a really fun comedy. Ben Stiller and Drew Barrymore did a great job on this.
It’s so funny and really reminds me of us and our upstairs neighbours, lol.
It’s a Danny Devito movie, so thumbs up to him.
– The Core: Well, I heard a lot of bad remarks about this movie before seeing it, but I actually didn’t find it that bad.
It’s not the best sci fi movie and it defies a lot of scientific laws, I agree. But it’s a good enough movie. Who cares if it’s scientifically correct or not, it’s fiction.
Of course what they did is impossible but well who cares.
It’s the same genre as Armageddon and Deep Impact. Impossible, unreal, and simply fiction.
I’ll just stop here for now…
I was at the DVD store yesterday and there are a bunch of new movies I haven’t seen yet. God, do I have a lot of catching up to do. I love it 😉
