Last night we saw Wolf of Wallstreet for our New Years Eve movie with friends but it was much too raunchy for me. Hard to believe it's a true story but it is.

Lately we saw The Hobbit part 2, and I was disappointed. Somehow I had missed that there were 3 parts and I was expecting it to end. But I did enjoy it, til it ended abuptly.  Thud 

I checked out several movies at the library yesterday. I had requested several and 6 of them came at the same time. So, I will have to round up some handwork for the next week or so to get them seen.

I had a free preview weekend for just about every channel Thanksgiving weekend, so I DVR'ed a lot of stuff! Watched Joyful Noise last week and thought it was ok. Brave was good. I'm wondering how much Oz the Great and Powerful is supposed to be like Wicked? I've never seen that, but it was an interesting prequel to the Wizard of Oz.

buzzysma I liked oblivion to and i cant stand Tom Cruise. I really like Elysium with Matt Damon, that was a good scifi, really enjoyed it, watched it again a couple of nights back.

Bratt dont know about Oz, I heard it was rotten but then someone else i know liked it, guess you will have to take a peek

Linda I like Sherlock Holmes too but it had been very hollywood-ised, your right about that.

DH has a whole load of Akira Kurosawa movies from the library to watch so I might have some sewing nights! I dont mind them at all but just not in the mood to watch at the moment

Oh, I think you misunderstood Gimpy. I watched Oz last night--Wicked is the one I haven't seen. It started slow, but it was interesting. I liked how he outsmarted the two witches. More importantly, I was glad it didn't come to life in my apartment with the flying monkeys and monsters and whatnot!

Yup, I got it wrong, I thought you were saying Oz was supposed to a be a 'wicked' (as in slang for good) movie LOL

I cant wait for the next Riddick movie to come out, it releases on DVD here on the 15th, but I dont think thats one you'd want to watch alone at night Bratt

I would, but I think Wicked is a play and not yet a movie. I wish they'd make it a movie--I've heard it's really really good.

Wicked is a play. I've seen it. It is so good. One of my favorites. Minneapolis gets lots of the Broadway plays here. The feel the Minneapolis audience is similar to New York for some reason. They show lots of New York bound plays here to test them prior to going to premiering in New York. An example is The Lion King. It was here first. We feel pretty lucky.

I watched "Mud" - a 2012 with Matthew McConaughey - had never heard of it but I liked it.
Got 2 off the 50 cent shelf too:
"The Other Sister" - really old but was on my list - about a mentally challenged rich girl who moves in with her family after being in a special school. Hard to watch some parts but good.
"Hemingway and Gellhorn" with Clive Owen & Nicole Kidman - how did I ever miss this 2012 one? It only got 3.5 stars on Amazon but I thought it was GREAT. So much history packed into a war love story. And the way it was produced was fascinating. Would love to know what others thought about it.

We went to the 2nd Hobbit movie yesterday. LOL! I can't even remember what this one is called. for some reason, I like the Hobbit series better than Lord of the Rings.

I saw The Other Sister a long time ago and I had forgotten all about that movie.  I really liked it, so went to my library site and am ordering it to watch again. Good movie from what I remember.

We just watched Trouble With the Curve with Clint Eastwood and Amy Adams.  I really liked it.

I got hubby to watch Salmon Fishing in Yemen, surprise, surprise he really liked it and is going to use it teaching creative writing at school. Also got him to watch Midnight in Paris and The Big Year, they are all 'tales' stories, not just entertainment glitz. All are really enjoyable, no violence, gun craziness, blood or gore, if you havent seen them, take a peek and settle back to enjoy a good old fashioned tale

I want to recommend two films I saw this past week: NEBRASKA and SAVING MR BANKS.
There's a lot going on in Nebraska especially in the silences. Nothing is black and white so being filmed that way is another fine touch. Bruce Dern gives an Oscar winning performance and he's surrounded by a great supporting cast. As for Saving Mr. Banks, this film also has lots going on as the action shifts often from the film's present to the past. Emma Thompson and Tom Hanks give stellar performances; however, the film takes some liberties with the historical facts of Travers' and Disney's relationship. As the credits run at the close of the film it is interesting to hear the actual recording of Travers as she consults on the Mary Poppins script. --Pom

Thanks for sharing Pom, its great to hear other peoples thoughts on movies. DH was watching Captain America last night, I just cant stand that movie, I read and went to sleep (until a cat fell on my head, then I woke up and read some more) I recently watched an Australian one called Red Hill, all filmed in a town just near where we lived before Tasmania. I really enjoyed the movie, loved the filming.

Linda 2B, I enjoyed Gravity as well. Over the weekend we went to see Monuments Men. As with most Hollywood movies about historical events, there are some liberties taken. I read somewhere that the original mission to save art included some 350 men while the film only highlighted less than a dozen. Still enjoyable. Next on our to see list is The Book Thief. I just finished reading the novel so now I'm ready to see how it was adapted to the screen. Will let all of you know what I think.
