Silly, but fun. It holds a place in my heart because it was the first and only movie I’ve snuck in to see. “Seriously? Princess Diaries 2?” you are asking. And well you should, not just because it’s a silly movie but also because I was in my mid-twenties when it came out. We went to see a real movie, one with explosions and stuff. And I mentioned to my husband I had never snuck into a movie. So, he snuck me into the next movie showing. Princess Diaries 2. 2 months ago

A documentary about Firefly and Serenity. Really great. Wonderfully interesting. It really focuses on how Firefly is a metaphor of itself.

I loved the book and I really think the movie did it justice. The back story comes out so well in the characters actions and demeanors. And they did a great ending. It’s wrapped up enough to feel closure. But there are enough hints, so that a second movie would fit perfectly. 4 months ago
Awhile ago I’d started watching 2 shows I have several seasons of on DVD – 2 Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps, and Modern Family. Finished both shows now, though haven’t seen all the extras on the DVDs yet. Also, have watched several episodes of Red Dwarf (new series), though haven’t finished it yet. 5 months ago
Blu-Ray. Disaster movie. Michael Shanks. How the Hell did this go wrong? And yet it did. Horrible. Just horrible and boring. Luckily, I can stare at Michael Shanks all day no matter what he’s doing. 5 months ago
The history of Spiderman, this will not be remembered well.
The point of Uncle Ben’s death is to cause an epiphany, “with great power comes great responsiblity.” That is the the center of Spiderman. Here is our perfect tragic hero. (okay, not entirely true. Batman is The PERFECT tragic hero) and the main flaw of Peter Parker is that he is immature. At Uncle Ben’s death, it doesn’t happen. Epiphany causes change and groth. Peter’s still having fun with it. Don’t get me wrong, all the best superheroes quip (that’s right; you keep flying away Superman) and we love that about them. But in this case, Peter continues to act childish and silly. He doesn’t have or carry his death of self. That is the defining characteristic of Spiderman. He gives up everything. His life-long love (who, in this movies, is someone he meets 10 minutes before he becomes Spiderman), his family (yet he keeps coming home to his aunt), his best friend (who doesn’t exist here), his mentor (we’ll give them that), and, most importantly, his sense of self. There’s no existential crisis. “Am I Spiderman? Am I Peter? Who is Peter, now that he’s lost everything?” They show these scenes of remorse, but there’s no connection to the death of the child (which never happens) to the birth of the man. This is a tragedy where they’ve stripped out the tragic elements. 6 months ago
I hadn’t seen him in so long, I forgot how funny Eddie Murphy is. Did not disappoint. 6 months ago
Really like this movie. I just watched it again. I love a good “End of the World” movie. Will we all die? Or will someone save us just in time? I like to cheer for the disaster. I like an underdog. Really a very good movie. Well worth watching 7 months ago
Not as good as I remember. Still has one of my favorite quotes, “Doing stuff is overrated. Like Hitler, he did a lot. But don’t we all wish he would have just stayed home and gotten stoned?” 7 months ago
I couldn’t believe it was still in it’s wrapper. It had to be one of the first DVDs we bought, back when DVDs were all new and and exciting. So old it had “Widescreen” across the top. How long has it been since you’ve had a choice. But it was wrapped, so I watched it. If you haven’t seen it yet, what’s wrong with you and how do you function in the world? 8 months ago
Well, what did you think it was going to be? Did anyone out there watch Serenity before Firefly? I just wonder if it makes sense and is a good movie, if you come in without that background. 8 months ago
Finished. 10 stars. Out of 5 stars. Firefly! Run out and buy it and watch it and then cry when there are no more.
Okay… the cover of the Blu-Ray is a picture of Serenity. Not that Serenity isn’t beautiful… but Nathan is just a little more beautiful. 8 months ago
Take my love, Take my land
Take me where I cannot stand;
I don’t care, I’m still free
You can’t take the sky from me
Yes, obviously I’ve seen it before many, many, many times but it is still wrapped up, so it counts.
Besides, any excuse to put up Nathan Fillion’s picture 8 months ago
Shockingly only watched Daybreakers a couple of months ago for ‘research’ purposes! In fact, I ended up watching it almost every night for a few weeks I thought it was THAT good!
New additions: Drive, True Grit and The Social Network

that I bought when they were released and still haven’t watched. I need to watch them or get rid of them….. 17 months ago
Its been a while since I updated this, and Im shamed to admit that a majority of the movies remain on the list.
I have though, managed to watch all or at least enough of the following to qualify for removal:
Four brothers – Absolutely loved it, great cast, great story.
Hustle & flow – Disliked it with a passion.
Minority report – Mildly disturbing.
Monster in law – Not bad.
Superbad – Very funny, loveable characters.
The wedding date – Lovely little movie for romance lovers.
Whatever it takes – What was I thinking?
However, there have also been some additions which I have purchased them long enough ago that they should have been watched by now:
The Italian Job
The Other Guys
Am also adding borrowed movies which Ive had for a shocking amount of time to the list:
An Inspector Calls
Black Hawk Down
Only 35 to go! 19 months ago
...apparently. Yet I never find the time to watch new films, preferring instead to entertain myself with well known classics and fall asleep to favourites.
But think of all the great movies Im missing out on, all the films sitting piled up and waiting to be viewed.
Next year I shall attempt to watch at least one new movie a week, then I can buy even more! 1 year ago
