What DVD are you watching lately?

I have BBC's Persuasion on, but I can't really get into. I've heard thought that BBC's Sense & Sensibility is good. Of course I"ve watched the Ang Lee Emma Thompson version which is superb... I may get it this week to see  :P

You know, Casablanca is a good movie, but it didn't blow me away.

Like a lot of Bogey's movies, it grows on you if you see it more than once. Also if you know just how low the budget actually was. When you realise they had like 3 or 4 sets for the whole deal, you realise just how much was riding on the performances. Now that's a movie.

yeah, I do love Humprey Bogart, but I think his best movie was The Maltese Falcon.  There is no one like him today, IMO

Hear, hear! Have you seen The Big Sleep? If you can get the Director's Cut it makes a lot more sense because they cut the explanatory scene to put more of Bogart and Bacall in it, which didn't help much.  ???
The Big Sleep has some excellent oneliners in it that Bogey ad-libbed, like where the bad girl is on the floor trying to pick up a gun:

"Get up, angel--you look like a Pekinese."

Treasure of the Sierra Madre is the only Bogart movie I haven't watched all of, because he is toooo good at crazy. I find it unsettling. (Yeah, I'm weird.)

No, thank you, base...having descended into madness myself once, I have no desire to watch Bogey do it convincingly.

I just scored a 5-pack of Austen and Bronte-based films. About to chill out with Mansfield Park, Jane Eyre, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion. Wuthering Heights is in there to but I reckon nowt to it.

Just finished watching Jennifer's Body (2009) for my essay in a literary/film analysis class. When I was younger I used to love horror films, but over the past few years my tolerance level for the gore and violence has gone way down. I cringed a few times in this one, but more than anything I laughed a lot. This definitely isn't your typical horror film. The director obviously had a message in mind, and she pardoied a lot of the steroetypical horror film tropes. I'd say it's worth watching, especially if you have any interest in feminism. Nothing like watching a flesh-eating female seek out her revenge on all of  mankind.

We  don't watch a lot of DVDs, as we tend to watch the BBC here on cable in Holland. Most Dutch shows drive me nuts and the BBC does great dramas, comedies, and documentaries. I totally heart the BBC.

I did finally get to see Food Inc recently. I want to see The Cove, but I know I can't handle it.

With my 3 year old, we tend to watch one DVD a lot - my copy of "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers". She just loves "the dancing movie" as she calls it.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. I used to love horror films, especially zombie movies. However, I'm getting to where I am having a hard time stomaching them anymore. I still like them, but now I'm leaning more toward the less violent ones, or at least the less gruesome ones. I loved Zombieland and I like Shaun of the Dead, too. Sooo, I'm guessing Jennifer's Body would be a hit, because I enjoy when movies will break the 4th wall and make fun of themselves. Good recommendation!

I watched Up in the Air the other night, and what can I say? George Clooney. That is all.  ;)b
