What Movies Have You Been Watching Lately?
« on: October 17, 2014, 10:30:37 PM »
Last flick i saw was Day of the Beast, by Alex De La Iglesia. A horror/comedy about a priest on a mission to halt the birth of the antichrist. Very well worth watching. It was fantastic!

The other day i did a marathon of Sharknado 2, Birdemic 2, and The ABC's of Death 2. Sharknado was fun. Birdemic 2 was trying too hard to be the first. And ABC's of Death 2 wasn't as good as the first, at least for my tastes, but still rather good.

I just watched the Back to the Future with the missus (who had never seen it before). And once again, I got annoyed by them (I love the films, but I have a hard time with some of the details... but that's another story for another time).


I also recently watched Ghostbusters.

its been a while since I've watched a movie. Been trying to watch all the shows I've missed over the weeks on demand.

Been watching Agents of shield,  Flash and Gotham.

Back to the Future and Ghostbusters, great films there. Someday you'll have to indulge us with the story regarding your pet peeve, James, haha.

Haven't seen any of those shows, Sonala. I used to be big into comics back in the day, but haven't been able to get into much for some time. Actually i just recently watched The Dark Knight in reverse. Pretty wicked. Sound and all, especially when Batman speaks, just fuckin hilarious. Been watching Hannibal lately. Good stuff. Mads Mikkelson makes the titular character even more of a monster. Plus i've been getting caught up on Hunter X Hunter.

Oh and Ghostbusters in reverse is pretty wild, too.

Funny thing is that i used to read comics when i was in the 3rd and 4th grade until the store closed down and that was it. On top of that,  I never really liked DC. I was always a Marvel kid but DC had all the cartoons and I hated that.

The last movie I watched was 12 years a slave last month and then Ride Along 2 weeks ago since those were 2 new movies on HBO go that I havent seen.

I rewatched Wreck-It Ralph a few weeks ago. I think I enjoyed it even more the second time, because I was done playing "spot the videogame character" and could just appreciate the story in its own right.

I tried to rewatch Superman II this evening (joining it half way through), but I had to switch it off before the rose-tinted glasses shattered in my face.

Ooh, if we're including TV shows, I'm about to watch the pilot of Gotham, just as soon as my latest bead art video finishes processing. :)

Haven't seen 12 Years a Slave yet, it looks good, though. Didn't realize there was a Ride Along 2, the first one was decent. Dazed and Confused is a minor 90's classic. I was always more of a Marvel kid, too, though I was heavily into Batman for a while like all demented boys, haha.

Cool vid, Jaywalker. You should make some Shenmue ones!

I should probably watch Wreck it Ralph again since i didn't get to see all of it the first time at the theater when i brought my brother's kids to see it and had to keep bringing them to the bathroom.

I've always preferred DC to Marvel, though I do like Spider-Man and the X-Men.


And in keeping with my 80's binge, I'm about to watch Groundhog Day with the missus.
