I had a first ever last month - - I didn't read anything.<< Home
Well, to be honest, I was reading a book - The Children of Henry VIII which I counted on January's list cuz I started it in Jan. But suddenly at work I started having to do stuff that wasn't conducive to reading and I was reduced to reading only on my break. So a book that should have taken me a night to read is taking me over a month! GAH!
But - I was able to watch movies at work. So my number of those are huge!
7. Big Fat Liar - This was on TV when I was in Jct and Jordyn and I stayed up to watch it. I'd seen it twice before - I love Paul Giamatti. He's so adorable, even as a clown!
8. The Road To Bali - My first Road movie with Bob Hope and Bing Crosby - Collin put it on my iPod. LOVED it! Bing Crosby was sooo cute!
9. Bend It Like Beckham - another iPod movie. It was okay...I just wanted to see what the hype over this one was all about and I wasn't that impressed.
10. Murder By Death - iPod. Favorite comedy of ALL TIME!! "Clues? Clues? I need no clues from you , I find my own clues you demented lollipop!"
11. Across The Universe - Blu-Ray. Our first Blu-Ray movie ever and it was awesome seeing it in that format.
12. Becoming Jane - This was cute but typical of all Jane Austen movies, the only difference being that it was about Jane herself. Joe Anderson from ATU was in it, that's the major reason I watched it. I was rewarded by seeing his naked butt yet again! LOL
13. Elizabeth: The Golden Age - Love Cate Blanchett as Liz I. I know that there was so much going on during those times but these movies tend to pick one thing and ignore other major players that were around then. This one focused on her relationship as it were with Sir Walter Raleigh. Robert Dudley, who died somewhere during that span of time, was never even mentioned and that bothered me. Nor was the Earl of Essex mentioned....
14. Waitress - LOVE THIS MOVIE!! Love Keri Russell, ADORE the crap out of Nathan Fillion! I will be watching this one multiple times.
15. Elizabeth I - The HBO miniseries and MOTM. Helen Mirren was the queen and did an amazing job. During the first part it was about her trying to find a husband and how she was "betrayed" by Dudley marrying one of her cousins without the court's permission. The second part focused on the same era that the Cate movie focused on and nothing was mentioned about Raleigh. But this was an awesome, awesome movie. Very well done and very graphic - you actually see Mary Queen of Scots's head come flying off when she's beheaded!
16. The US vs. John Lennon - A documentary about how the FBI was trying to deport John Lennon. Very entertaining and a lot of great footage and interviews!
17. Harry Potter & The Order of the Phoenix - This movie doesn't have enough Ron in it.
18. White Christmas - I had never seen this classic and ended up adoring it! Danny Kaye - - so cute!!
19. The Beatles From Liverpool To San Francisco - Interview footage showing their journey to America and their rise.
20. Monster Makers - An incredibly cheesy Hallmark Halloween movie that I bought for Adam Baldwin. It wasn't bad and I might watch it again just for him.
21. Serenity (Collector's Edition) - JAYNE!!!!! The extras were fun! Never get tired of this movie!
22. The Italian Job - The remake with Mark Wahlberg and Edward Norton. I really liked it - fun and fast and pretty pretty men.
23. Free Jimmy - An odd animated movie Collin found with the voice of Simon Pegg.
24. Mr. Brooks - Mom hadn't seen this so she came over to watch it. She liked it and I enjoyed it just as much as the first time.
25. Good Luck Chuck - Yep, a Dane Cook double shot! This was actually cute and had some good lines! Lots of sex, too!
26. Night Watch - A Russian vampire movie that we watched last year and really liked. We just recently got Daywatch so we had to refresh our memories.
27. Fuck - A documentary on the word fuck. Funny, informative and fun.
28. The Prestige - This was good - - it was half set in Colo Spgs (at least it said it was - - you never really saw the town) and I figured out half the secret. The other half I did NOT see coming!!
29. Hairspray - Watched the remake again. It's just too cute!
30. The Thirst - A vampire movie with Adam Baldwin and Jeremy Sisto that was chock full of blood and boobies! Don't know that I would watch this one again.
31. The Goonies - Going over a year without watching this movie is just wrong.
32. Can't Hardly Wait - I adore this movie. And now that I've started watching Six Feet Under, it's hard to see the 4 people in this movie as anything but their SFU characters.
33. The Grass Is Greener - Cary Grant with glasses - does it get any better?
34. The Bourne Ultimatum - The best of the three. At least I thought so.
TV3. Six Feet Under (Season 3)
