    Okay, I didn't die...just house-sitting where I have a laptop with Windows 8. YUCK! I don't like laptops and I LOATHE Windows 8. I finally gave up trying to do this week's movies and came home to do it instead. And what a waste of time! There is SO much crap this week! It's supposed to be the beginning of summer movie season! Maybe that's the third week of May? I even deleted about four or five movies that had trailers that were so bad, I just took them off the list. So here's the list and it's in rough order with best first. I think only "Free The Mind" is going on my To See list. "Love Is All You Need" looks like it could be a sleeper hit. Is Pierce Brosnan alone enough to sell a movie though? And Aroused looks like a very well made movie, but just not my thing.

    May 3 - Love Is All You Need (Romantic comedy with Pierce Brosnan)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHS51O_Sn9Q

    May 3 - Free the Mind (Documentary. From imdb.com: “In 1992 Professor Richard Davidson, one of the world's leading neuroscientists, met the Dalai Lama, who encouraged him to apply the same rigorous methods he used to study depression and anxiety to the study of compassion and kindness, those qualities cultivated by Tibetan meditation practice.”)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJvGZmOhCDo

    May 3 - The Iceman (Drama with Michael Shannon, Winona Ryder, Chris Evans, Ray Liotta, David Schwimmer, James Franco and Stephen Dorff)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJIXOx2-GZ8

    May 3 - Aroused (Documentary. From imdb.com: “A documentary that captures the making of a fine art photographic book featuring 16 of the world's most successful adult film stars.”)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oYS6vLdK_Wg

    May 3 - Dead Man's Burden (Western with Claire Bowen [Nashville] and David Call [Smash])
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j01bboSYnLs

    May 3 - Greetings from Tim Buckley (Drama with Penn Badgley)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pyPoTI-59HU

    May 3 - Caroline and Jackie (Drama with new cast and David Giuntoli [Grimm])
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGzuiWeg15c

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ClP-e9Rkl8

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JE4Q_7YNlAo

    May 3 - Generation Um… (Drama with Keanu Reeves)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yIsTAgS4DgY

    You know what the good thing about going to the cinema in Sweden is? You decide where you want to sit when you buy your ticket, so if you buy that early, you'll have a better chance of getting a good seat, without having to stand in line and rush in when the salon opens.

    Which is how I got the best seat in the house for one of the opening day screenings of Star Trek Into Darkness. Aww yeah!

    I watched This Is 40 last night. Meh. If I'd ignored disc blurb and the "hilarity" promised, and gone into it expecting a situational drama with the occasional moment humour, I probably would have enjoyed it a lot more. Because the characters and their situations are entirely relatable -- despite Paul Rudd doing his one-note standard performance he's still not terrible to watch, and Leslie Mann is great. But it just wasn't funny. At. All. And over 2 hours of an un-funny comedy is pretty painful.

    Let's Talk Movies! #22 : Steve Jobs, Some Trekkies, An Ozzy...and IRON MAN!!!

    The trailer for This Is 40 was probably the most hilarious trailer I had ever seen. The movie...not so much. I still liked it, though.

    Saw Iron Man and really liked the amount of action scenes that involved Tony Stark fighting without the Ironman Suit.

    Yeah, I just got back from it. Overall a good film, and another solid entry in the Iron Man franchise, but I think it's the weakest of the three films. There were noticeable plot holes (material must have been cut out; that was the feeling I had, at least), and I got really sick of the burning dudes after a while. Ben Kingsley was totally awesome. I didn't really like the use of Pepper in this movie; it didn't feel as authentic in the previous films, she had less of a sense of humor and the crafted 'badass' moments felt really forced. She came across better as a smart, strong business woman than as the person she was in the final bit of the film. The little boy used in parts of the film was awesome. I might see it again, as I can never tire of watching RDJ for a couple hours, but I did like the other two better.

    I want to go see Iron Man tomorrow or Sunday, preferably during a matinee so it may not be such a crowd. I love seeing these movies in the theater even though I don't think they are exactly "great" movies. They sure are fun on the big screen, though.

    I haven't read through the whole thread but wondered if anyone has seen Mud. I'm interested since I live in Arkansas. It was filmed here and one of the main characters is played by an Arkansas boy. The reviews I've read have been mostly positive. Any opinions here?

    I saw it and posted a little about it intros thread not very far back. It was good but not great. I would recommend waiting for a rental but since you may want to see which places you recognize you might prefer the theater. I think it took place in Dewitt.

    Thanks for the input. I figure I will wait for the DVD since I have to go out of town to a movie theater. I live in western Arkansas, which is a whole different kind of landscape from the DeWitt area. I've actually only been there a couple of times, both for funerals. My brother-in-law is from there, but I bet it's been 30 years since he saw a movie, and I doubt this will lure him in.

    I went and saw Oblivion today. We were going to see Iron Man 3 but another friend wanted to see Oblivion and we figured waiting another week for Iron Man was probably a good idea, anyway. Oblivion was good but it really confused the heck out of me. I don't normally have trouble following things but I am seriously heading over to IMDB.com after posting this to figure some things out. It was quite good, better than I expected, actually.

    I discovered something horrible today. I love theater popcorn! I know, this sounds silly, but I just recently posted in another thread here how I could care less about popcorn. Our friend got some and I had a handful and was thinking about it the entire movie. No wonder I couldn't follow the plot. It was so much better than some store bought bag. I may go see a lot of movies this summer just for the popcorn.

    I've done that before I've told my friends that, even if I am a self-proclaimed movie snob , I'll pretty much go see anything if they need a movie buddy because popcorn makes up for a bad film in a big way.

    Okay, so, recent movies I've watched:

    Silver Linings Playbook - JENNIFER LAWRENCE. That aside, I think I need to watch this again before giving a legitimate review, because I think the year-long build up of anticipation and the fact that I still haven't quite gotten over not getting to see this in theaters probably tainted my actual viewing of the movie. (How adorable is Jacki Weaver, though?)

    The Cabin In The Woods - Also not as good as I was expecting, as a big Whedon fan. I thought the cast was absolutely perfect and some of the twists and ideas were really brilliantly executed, but the bug purge at the end was kind of a let down and I hated the ending. I thought it really ran out of steam, though I can't help but smile any time Sigourney Weaver is on my screen, even if it is a cameo. In my ideal world I would grow up to be some kick ass mix of Sigourney Weaver and Mary McDonnell when I'm their age (everyone has to have goals, right?).

    Beasts of the Southern Wild - I was really impressed with this film. The cast was just excellent. Ms. Wallis deserved her praise, but I think the man who played her father deserved an equal amount of it and I have no idea why he was so overlooked. The score was absolutely amazing. I loved, loved, loved it. Also, if a movie has a lot of water in it that always significantly ups the likelihood that I will like it. I can't really explain that one, I just love looking at water. Life of Pi made me deliriously happy for its shipwreck scene and just being set in water.

    WOW! That is just waaaay beyond what even I would expect. Just wanted to add that without RDJ this movie would not have done nearly as well. So hats off to him especially since he has done so well overcoming his past problems with addition.

    Didn't get into "Great Gatsby" (limited screening) so no early impressions from me.

    Next up, "Star Trek Into Darkness," which I'm psyched about.

    I interviewed Chris Pine before he started filming the first film (he had already been cast) and he couldn't be nicer ... or more dapper.

    The first poster for Europa Report, plus some info on what it's about. A scientifically accurate space thriller? Count me in!

    I picked up a great little sleeper gem from the library last night: California Solo. (Don't go by the imdb rating, this film is worth much higher than the 5.something they're giving it!) I'm a sucker for redemption stories, even if the redemption is vague or incomplete. And nobody plays this kind of character like Robert Carlyle -- damaged and self-destructive, but still retaining a human truth that draws you in. It also shows a very un-Hollywood LA that was a refreshing change.

    Bad in math class, was he? (Just kidding. ) I agree he carried this movie, and was marvelous. I can't imagine anyone playing those interactions with the little boy any better.

    The Great Gatsby - 44% approval so far on RT. I wonder if adults are going to turn out for this film. I want to see it.

    Did jOBS come out as planned? I never remember seeing any previews for it or seeing it listed at the movie theater and I have seen quite a few movies recently. Was it pushed back, limited release or just a huge flop? It always kind of felt like a Lifetime movie to me.
