Even with a kind of unique for a romantic-comedy-drama film topic, I' ve become really bored of this "boring-unintresting-but-kind guy meets his manic pixie dream girl" theme. At least here she gets to be a bit more developed as a character.

The opening scene deserves some kind of special ribbon.... and so does the last.

This is the anti-apocalypse movie....

("(You guys sure have) lots of guns and potato chips." How could I have forgotten that line?)

And it sure beats 'Anna Karenina', Keira. ;)

And the war-in-space movies. *smiles*

It's good to come down to ... read more

Movies I Streamed on Netflix in 2015 (111 movies items)

"Pros: More enjoyable than the similarly-themed '4:44 Last Day on Earth' and 'Melancholia' (see above for both); better than I expected overall; great soundtrack (a certain song by The Hollies stands out as particularly memorable in the film); I enjoyed the "road-movie" aspect; (on a shallow note) "Penny" has some cute clothes. Cons: Not the best cast -- leads Steve Carell and Keira Knightley are watchable, but I secretly wouldn't have minded if other actors had been cast in their roles; Knightl"

Movies the giraffe watched in 2015: August (29 movies items)

"First viewing - Aug. 17th Been wanting to catch this one for a while now, so thank you Netflix for adding it recently. Turns out it was pretty much worth the wait too. The story is fairly predictable, but the characters are a joy to watch along the way which keeps it worthwhile. There's also some entertaining material mined from the what-if idea of how people might behave during our final days on Earth if we knew it was all soon to end. It's nothing great, but I did wind up enjoying well enough"
