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

The Unloved
This is one where I should have listened to all the reviews..which said: BORING. Wow. Seriously like 1 1/2 hours looking into this child's face. I get that it's trying to paint a picture, but really. Accents made it difficult to understand, and I didn't understand the interactions with the mother. This is not a movie, this is following a child around. 2/5

I'm getting ready to watch If a Tree Falls: A Story of the Earth Liberation Front. Again.

Over the past week, I've been tossing around ideas of how to step off the beaten paths we've created when resolving our problems. This documentary addresses stepping off the beaten path when resolving environmental issues and I love it. Great film!

I watched Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World last night and was pleasantly surprised about how much I enjoyed it.

^^ Is that the superhero movie?

I just watched Pickaxe - The Cascadia Free State Story. Another great documentary about environmental activists using non-violent protests and hunger strikes to save the forests in Oregon and Idaho.

I've told you about Scott Pilgrim vs. the world before, Josh! Not really about superheroes but it's from a comic book series of the same name and the effects are all quite superhero-ey and kapow-ey if y'know what I mean.

Slaughter High: Typical 80's revenge slasher. Some cool kills but not as bloody as I like. Still good, though. 3/5

Totally agree!

Ohhhh! Ok. Yes yes..I now remember you telling me about this movie. What's the one that is about teenagers becoming superheroes? They made costumes and everything. I've not seen that one or the Scott Pilgrim movie, though.

hmmm... could the movie you're thinking of be Kick Ass? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1250777/

I haven't seen that one, but have heard good things about it.

I knew going into it that The Tree of Life wouldn't be "fun", but I'm ironing duvet covers so slow works.  It kind of reminded me of a modern-day Kurosawa film (Dreams, not Dersu Uzala).  I liked it, but I can't imagine watching it with my full attention.  The image montages were cool.

YES!! That's the one. I think I was confused because both of the main guys are from the movie Superbad.

This one is on my list.

Ok. So. Twilight was on TV. Because I have no where to go and because my mom loves the Twilight series, the movie played in it's entirety this evening. I ended up reading about anarchism and OccupyPortland online and (I admit) I watched a fair share of the vampire flick while reading online. Afterwards, my mom asked if I like the movie and I said, "It was cheesy as hell. But I was in love with the Portland/Oregon filming locations. And that's all." Haha!!

Limitless
I started out thinking this was too frou frou without enough substance or character development, but it grew on me. I do still think there's not a lot of character development, but it is what it is. I think the movie steadily improved, and ending wasn't bad. 4/5

it stars Elizabeth Olsen(mary kate and ashleys younger sister) in it.  She was in a cult like family situation, and the movie goes back and forth to her remembering what all happeed to her.

Spain specialises in effed up. Their "disturbing" (the Spanish word is "inquietante") short films are...wow.
ETA: Oh, I IMDB'd the title. Not Spanish, Mexican. Different culture, different cinema.

That looks amazing!! Was the movie dark and psychologically-unsettling? Those are my favorites. :)

it wasn't as dark as I hoped, and it had one of those endings where you say wth???  But, I did like it.

Watched Rosemary's Baby last night.

seriously messed up movie in all the right ways. I covet all of Farrow's dresses... 60's frocks and shifts are one of my favorite things to wear.
