It Feels Like A Movie Thursday

  • I’m a movie buff. I love to watch movies. Or should they be called films?
  • I recently watched “Up In The Air”, starring George Clooney, Vera Farmiga, Anne Kendrick, and Jason Bateman.
  • I really liked it.
  • I don’t think my wife is a fan of George Clooney, but she says she doesn’t like Vera Farmiga at all. Hmm… I find her attractive.
  • Clooney’s got a great smile. Farmiga’s got a very radiant face.
  • Have you ever noticed that some of these movie stars have exceptionally radiant faces? I wonder what their secret is, but it’s probably just in the genes.
  • I also think Angelina Jolie and Penelope Cruz both have exceptionally radiant complexions.
  • Vera Farmiga…. that last name has “farm” in it. Kind of weird.
  • I’m very hesitant nowadays about plunking down $15 to $20 to see a movie. I don’t buy into the 3-D and IMAX thing. It’s just me being frugal again.
  • Though, we gave money to our sons to watch Avatar in 3D IMAX.
  • You ever wonder… a part of the hype of movies (or any product for that matter) is either being the first one on your block who’s seen it. Teens are so susceptible to the hype.
  • I prefer to wait till it comes out on DVD. I seldom go to the movies because once upon a time, I was going to the movies at $3.65 a pop!
  • Okay, I don’t know if this whole 3D TV thing is going to catch on. Imagine, having to put on 3D glasses every time you watch the television.
  • I don’t watch much television any more. But, I love to watch movies on TV.
  • It’s still better watching movies in the comfort of your own home. And nowadays, you can have your own home theater, with popcorn maker, and not have to listen to the guy snoring next to you in a crowded movie theater, or the other guy who smells like he hasn’t bathed in a week.
  • I like action and disaster movies.
  • Recently saw 2012 on DVD. My wife and I saw this one in the theaters. Was this the last movie I saw in the theaters? Hmm…
  • I liked it.
  • Though I know, the story is pretty hoakey. And, though the special EFX were quite amazing, it is a bit far-fetched, but that’s the whole fun of disaster movies anyways.
  • I thought it was cool to finally see California sink into the Pacific. LOL.
  • I’m not a big fan, but I like John Cusack. But I thought he was more memorable in “Serendipity” with Kate Beckinsale.
  • I recently watched Terminator 2: Judgement Day… own the EXTREME Special Edition. lol.
  • Great action film. Users at IMDB.com give it an 8.5/10 rating. It IS probably the best Terminator sequel.
  • In Terminator III they should have at least gotten someone who looked like the kid in T2. Young John Connor’s transformation into young adulthood wasn’t a good one.
  • Of course, James Cameron directed Terminator 2.
  • Robert Patrick was amazing (and cast perfectly) as the T-1000, the bad terminator. Though the special effect of him changing to other people and his arms becoming swords and such, were cool, my mind is trying to rationalize that if he were made of “liquid metal”, how come he looked like a regular human being? I mean, could liquid metal adapt the same form of softer more flexible human skin and hair?
  • Anyway, I liked the latest Terminator: Salvation.
  • Although the effects and cinematography are so much more improved than Terminator 2, I still think T2 is the better movie.
  • Terminator: Salvation has a 6.9/10 rating on imdb.com.
  • Isn’t this the movie where Christian Bale was secretly taped yelling at people on the set? If so, that would make sense. It looked like he was definitely in a bad mood throughout the entire movie, but that’s probably acting right? I mean, having to battle all those terminators would drive anyone into a hissy fit.
  • “Hasta la vista, baby!”
