I just watched Middle Men on Netflix. Quite entertaining and a little bit aggravating.

After watching The Avengers I've decided to watch all of the movies leading up to it. I started with Captain America and Thor. I just have to wait for Iron Man to be on Netflix instant queue.

I need to watch Fantastic Mr. Fox again as well as some Miyazaki movies. :)

I have seen quite a few lately (past few weeks), The Avengers, MIB 3, The Grey, and Win Win.

I loved them all, especially Win Win. It has Paul Giamatti in it, an actor who I think is severely underrated and deserves more leading roles but anyway, and it was very good. It had great acting, story, and was pretty funny too. Definitely recommend it.

I only remember Paul Giamatti from people making fun of him.

He is really good in Win Win, Sideways, and Barney's Version to name a few. Oh and the miniseries John Adams. He was really good in that

Win Win was great. As was the Avengers, though for an entirely different set of reasons. Both very well made movies.

I've watched a ton of movies lately (as usual). Prometheus was pretty good, and I enjoyed it from an analytic stand point. It's fun to watch it knowing Ridley Scott's trends and the themes of Alien and Aliens. Brave was also good, though nothing spectacular. Pixar has made better.

I also watched a couple of indies recently: We Need to Talk About Kevin and Jeff, Who Lives at Home. Both of them were really good and thought-provoking. I highly recommend either. Jeff, Who Lives at Home had a very good story and was well put together. We Need to Talk About Kevin was surreal in parts and told through flash-backs etc., showing the things that led up to the major event.

That's right, I want to watch Prometheus. If only Alice was more of a movie person.

I almost thought that was one movie with the way you wrote that!

I made the mistake of watching the new-ish Red Riding Hood film. I mean, I knew it was going to be shit but wow, it was appalling.

It's a mistake if you went out to watch it. It'll be forgivable when I watch it sometime down the line on Netflix. Covering my bases here.

Saw Brave a little while ago. It was probably the most visually amazing Pixar movie to date, in my opinion. Finding Nemo would likely be insanely awesome looking if they had made it today, but Brave really takes the cake in my opinion.

Also, I don't get all the hate for it not being a "great" Pixar film, but a great film nonetheless when you don't compare it to Pixar's other movies. It was pretty funny, had a decent story, and still had a lot of the same Pixar charm. I just don't understand the hate.

Also, Merida's hair is a true technological feat.

Just got back a little while ago from seeing The Amazing Spiderman. I thought it was done much better than the first set of movies, but I think that is more because they had a chance to address some issues fans may have had with the first three films. I wish I knew more about the comics to compare it, but from what I have heard the character of Spiderman was done great justice as apparently he is absolutely hilarious and screws with people in the comics.

Enjoyed it a lot and can't wait for the next one to come as they recently announced it will at least be a trilogy.

Just got back from The Dark Knight Rises and it was great. I would say of the three, it was the best one, barely edging out the first in my opinion.

It made me realize something though, the second movie really did not need to happen for the way the third movie went and ended. There were only a few pieces of information that were important and necessary to carry over into the third film. A lot of which could have been dealt with in the first movie if it was slightly changed. I think it would have been much more fun to have the series end on the Joker as the villain, arguably one of the best villains ever created.

Skimmed to make sure there weren't any spoilers. Alice and I will be seeing it this weekend.

Saw Life of Pi and Lincoln recently. I enjoyed both. Prepare yourselves for John's incoming recommendation for Life of Pi.
