What to Rent
« on: August 07, 2009, 08:38:01 am »
A rather interesting site: http://www.whattorent.com/index.php

It will ask you questions and give suggestions on the type of movie that it thinks you would enjoy to watch.

Interesting, but for some unfathomable reason they gave me Before Sunrise as first pick, I hate that movie!
I found it to be stunningly boring.  >:(

But then they offered up Cinema Paradiso which is a wonderful movie to watch, I guess it needs a bit more balancing, but looks useful no less.

Some thing Unexpected, and along the lines of "Experimental Theater" I recommend:
REPO! The Genetic Opera
http://www.repo-opera.com/

This is the premise for the upcoming film Repomen

It is an Opera in the Future Scenic. Litterally an Opera with Sung lines and Musical diversions. The film could very well be a Rocky Horror Picture Show of its own right!

I like my netflix, when you rate movies you have seen it gives you really good suggestions and some movies I never would thought I would like.

I plan on watching Shutter Island, Remeber Me, Wolfman and getting an American Werewolf in London, I have the one for American werewolf in Paris and didn't realize it was better to watch the one then the other. I think there are a couple of others I wanted to rent, but forgot what they were - most just came out June 22. :)

I finally watched Wolfman, and I wasn't impressed. I was sooo disapointed. It is definitely a rent-only or don't-bother kind of movie.

I found it really slow in parts then really gory in others. There was no in between and I guessed the end before I even watched the first quarter.

I'm thinking of renting a bunch of older movies, like Bringing Up Baby (Katherine Hepburn & Cary Grant), Holiday (Katherine Hepburn & Cary Grant again), Captain Blood (Errol Flynn, Olivia De Haviland), The Mark of Zorro (Tyrone Power & Linda Darnell), etc.

And then jumping forward to the 1980's, Flash Gordon, the king of cheesy sci fi movies. I love it :)

Been watching anime myself. But Christmas cottage was nice - thomas kinkaid movie, how he got started.

Letters to juliet, and Dear Jon. Wow Dear Jon was really - ya, tear jerky at the end. I felt for the guy. I liked letters to juliet though.

I've discovered Netflix myself and I've been watching all the old 40's murder mysteries that are funny.  I love Red Skelton's Whistling movies as "The Fox".  Hilarious!  And The Thin Man series.  Stuff like that.  Not into the gore they show today and where's the humor?

I never could find the old Tyrone Power/Linda Darnell "Mark of Zorro" movie to rent - it's not even available on Netflix - so I ended up buying it for $10 on Amazon. It should be here today :) Along with Kenneth Braunagh's Much Ado About Nothing and the BBC version of Sherlock Holmes.

I love "Shoot em up" but couldnt stand Scott Pilgrim.  I watched "Unkown" with Liam Neeson, that was enoyable, "The Town" with Ben Affleck was ok. Been watching Dead Wood again, like that series
