Movies I’ve Seen Lately

July 1st, 2012 Posted in Uncategorized

Prometheus. I saw this in IMAX 3D. On the one hand this is a profoundly stupid movie. On the other hand, I was entertained the whole time. Go figure.

Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. I think I might have already posted about this one, but it was lovely. Highly recommended. Steve Carell, endlessly sweet and charming and lovable.

The Avengers. Also highly recommended. Yes, I’m a Joss Whedon groupie, but there’s a very good reason I’m a Joss Whedon groupie. Most of what he writes is very smart and funny.

Men in Black III. It was okay. I wanted to like it more, but I can’t say that I did. There’s a lot better out there to see, alas.

What I was thinking about seeing today, but I don’t seem to be moving on it: Moonrise Kingdom, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Magic Mike, (I love watching people dance).

I took this on my walk up the east side. Why would someone put Medusa’s head on the front of their building?

    I saw “Moonrise Kingdom” a couple of weeks ago and I guess I’m the only person who didn’t find it particularly charming.
    I spent Canada Day morning watching “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.” It was, as one would expect, full of violence and lots of action, but pretty entertaining. I am NOT IN THE LEAST a vampire genre fan but I guess I went to see it because of the title alone. Will you go see it?
    This was a crazy week at work for me but I just wanted to let you know, Stacy, that the package I had hoped to get into the mail to you this past week is still sitting here! On Tuesday, I promise (only because tomorrow’s a holiday here!). Keep your eyes peeled for it!

    Happy Canada Day!! Please don’t give me a thought, you are so nice to do what you are doing and there is no rush!!

    re: Medusa: This kinda got me going. Good old Google provides the answer:
