Tonight I watched the best vampire movie I've seen since Coppola's 'Dracula' and 'Let the Right One In'--both near-classics, especially the latter:

Byzantium

Intelligent, atmospheric, sophisticated, elegiac, poetic, beautiful...I hope it sets a fresh new standard for this genre, which has been pretty dismal lately apart from the two above, and made to appeal to mopey teenaged girls than demanding adult film-goers.

Two gorgeous, talented actresses in it, especially the gothically lovely Brit Gemma Arterton.

HIGHLY recommended movie!!!!!

I'm probably very silly. My Aunty, Gwen and I watched (Aunty listened) "Frozen." I like Disney! I also watched "Despicable Me 2," and many Addams Family series.

Gwen is bringing over "The Help," which she says is a wonderful movie, on our nice Saturdays with Aunty, Gwen, and my boyfriend (I'm not sure he's my boyfriend but that's another thread) and Laki, my soul sister.

I've been "absent," due to brotherly visitation,

and he brings BUSHELS of movies!

Don Jon ~ starts nowhere, goes nowhere, but it's about porn, so ...

Thanks For Sharing ~ an actual story about sex addicts, up and down, drama. I didn't care for it.

In A World ~ Lake Bell, a gorgeous woman, wrote, directed and starred in this fluff flick

The Family ~ Please. Godfather, minus ... well, everything except the mafia connections

Prisoners ~ Weird, and I guessed the back story, but this is pretty dark, on a BUNCH of levels

You're Next ~ Another one that I guessed the gimmick, but it was entertaining and fast-paced

Bad Grandpa ~ A laugh out loud comedy, for real, even withOUT any herb, "Jackass" actual MOVIE

More, as I watch them.




(sorry. i do this with reading, too. my bad.)

You know what Ghost... You surprise me. You remind me of a biker and then you post stuff like this....elegiac. LoL Talk about the outer not matching the inner.

Works for you. You could be .... Wesley Snipes character that I forget the name just at this moment. Remind me not to run into you on a dark night.

One of my Favorite movies of All Time was K-PAX with Kevin Spacey and Jeff Bridges

Another favorite was Terminal where Tom Hanks plays a stranded traveler when his nation falls into civil war and becomes a man with no country and is Stuck in the Terminal at JFK Airport in NYC

HEY, now!

You're real.

Really.

(Or should I say, For Real? lol)

You're either EPICALLY AWESOME,

or AWESOMELY EPIC!

But, I'm sort of partial to you, so ... http://i235.photobucket.com/albums/ee57/Fyrenza/Forum%20Stuff/winkie_zps67f07067.gif (http://s235.photobucket.com/user/Fyrenza/media/Forum%20Stuff/winkie_zps67f07067.gif.html)

Strangely enough, this is one of my favourite films of 2013!!!

It is Joseph Gordon-Levitt's first foray into directing, and if he can make a movie THIS good the first time out, he's got a GREAT future ahead of him--he's come a long way from 'Third Rock from the Sun'!

It is so wise and so insightful about what it says concerning relationships between men and women and sex and love. That makes it sound like a "chick flick', and in some ways it might be seen that way, but it's a chick flick for men, and from a guy's point of view, but so intelligent that it places it head and shoulders above just about everything else in that genre. It's not a silly romantic wish-fulfillment fantasy, but tries to say some profound, important things about how we interact with each other.

It's also funny as hell, and all the performances are first rate.

If I wanted a rehash of life?

I'd just remember it.

No thanks.

I want to go where I've never been.

Brad Pitt was charming in that movie. He was also great as Aldo Raine and the other guy in Fight Club.

Well ... I'm still crushing on Don Johnson, so I don't have much wiggle room, here. http://i235.photobucket.com/albums/ee57/Fyrenza/Forum%20Stuff/rolleyes-sarcastic_zps4a6a4fc1.gif (http://s235.photobucket.com/user/Fyrenza/media/Forum%20Stuff/rolleyes-sarcastic_zps4a6a4fc1.gif.html)

I must have been one of the few people who loved 'Fight Club'.

I understand and can relate to what that film is trying to say perfectly!

I liked it, too. I tried reading the book. It was like trying to make sense of one of your songs that you post.

I suppose that it depends on what you're looking for a film to say/do;

I don't care if anyone else KNOWS the angst of the things of my life,
because if they actually lived a life,
they lived those things, too.

I'm not looking for what I already know;

I'm looking for the things that I don't know.
