X-Men (2000)
I had seen the newest X-Men movies, so i decided to go back and watch the first ones. I just love this series. I guess i'm a tad bit of a nerd, haha.
the worst part of this movie was Anna Paquin. i've never liked her, though. and i didnt even know that she was in the x-men series.

I never really had the desire to watch these movies, but i figured that i should at some point.
i was actually pleasently surprised. i don't see why people hate tom cruise so much, to be honest

Honey (2003)
I am getting so sick and tired of all of these underdog dance movies. is the dancing good in this movie? yes. but not "my kind" of dancing, dialect, or music. so i didn't enjoy it.

Breaking Wind (2012)
Little disclaimer: i do like the twilight series, but i think that they screwed up the movies (books are so much better)
this moive was hillarious, i just wish that there were less fart jokes and the like. i really dont get why spoofs much always make fun of bodily functions.
other than that, i really liked this parody

Eagle Eye (2008)
For some reason it felt like i had seen this movie before, but i couldn't remember 90% of it. in any case, i knew the resolution, but basically nothing else.
anyways, i really enjoyed this movie. i love thrillers like this.

ehh, i'm pretty neutral about this movie. didn't hate it, didn't really like it all that much. it didn't really hold my attention; but neither did the first one.

Watchmen (2009)
This was a very complex movie, and also very long.
its not that it didn't hold my intrest, but i felt lost through the majority of it. i know that this is typical for book-based movies, so i should probably read the novel if i want to truly enjoy the movie

The Smurfs (2011)
I don't really know what i was expecting when i decided to watch this movie. i had never seen anything with the smurfs, the only thing that i knew was that there was an addictive get-stuck-in-your-head song that they sing, that's why i waited so long to see it.
but it was actually really good. there are some very touching moments that i found very enjoyable.

Was this really necessary? it really felt like they were grasping at straws with this one. and that is coming from someone who actually DID like the first movie and is not totally annoyed by the chipmunk voices.

i did enjoy the reference to wilson and robinson crusoe (calloway, nerf, etc...)

I had to finish up the trilogy before seeing the next movie. again, i was pretty pleasently surprised. i had never watched these movies because always seemed so cliche, but i actually did like it.
the only downside is that i'm not really into the super-long-everything-blows-up-every-ten-seconds type scenes.

It appears that i have picked quite a few good movies to watch this week. tim burton films are usually a bit "out there", and that's what i like about them! johnny deepe did fantastic as always. and not knowing the story before going into it helped with the suspense.
i'm a fan

This is one of those "wtf" movies that gets more and more strange the farther into it you get. Very dark, very creepy to think about if you were placed in such a situation. I'm still in the air about this movie.

Always nice to find another monthly list with notes. :)

I like the X-Men series for the most part too, though I should let you know the 3 films here aren't all of them. X-Men: First Class came out last year (and is currently my favorite of the bunch) and there's also X-Men Origins: Wolverine (currently my least favorite of them).

Also it looks like we're in agreement on MI III, but I didn't care much for the 2nd one. The first remains my favorite of the series, but I haven't managed to check out the 4th film yet. I'll look forward to seeing whether you enjoy it.
Posted: 4 years, 5 months ago at Apr 7 12:25
Thank you! I actually saw X-Men first class and Wolverine when they came out, that's why I went back and watched the rest of them. :]
Posted: 4 years, 5 months ago at Apr 12 21:51
Ah OK. Since only those 3 are here I thought maybe you'd somehow missed the newer ones. That's what I get for assuming. ;)
Posted: 4 years, 5 months ago at Apr 13 1:52
That's okay. You're forgiven. :]
Any reccomendations for me to watch?
Posted: 4 years, 5 months ago at Apr 23 14:50
I don't even know where to start with recommendations haha. Um, you might take a look at this list which has the best of what I watched last year...also the worst so you know what NOT to watch. ;)
