Be it in theater, DVD, cable/network broadcast, shaky phone-cam pirated download, whatever. Count only the last movie you watched "with purpose", i.e. not "I saw two minutes of 'Adventures in Babysitting' while flipping channels last night..."

You'll have to decide for yourself what counts as a "movie" if you have doubts.

I watched "Insidious" at a friends house the other night. I had already seen it, though, so I'm not sure that counts.

Before that, I saw "Buck" at the Belcourt with a friend. I loved it.

And the day before that, I saw the last "Harry Potter" movie.

I don't think we've watched any movies at home lately... we've been too busy moving, cleaning, and trashing stuff.

By the by, I love "Adventures in Babysitting."

Sure. Last one you saw, regardless. Feel free to comment on it or whatever. I'm just being conversational.

I watched Glengarry Glen Ross last night. It was good enough and kept me interested although I'd have a hard time recommending it. It's one of those "stuff happens and then it stops" things that doesn't have a real pay-off if you didn't like the road to get there to begin with.

It wasn't very good. It had promise (if you like scary movies) right up until they pulled out the gas mask with the vacuum cleaner hose on it to talk to the spirit of the not-dead-yet boy. After that, they completely lost me.

Layer Cake, since I had ordered it from Netflix 8 months ago, and figure I may as well watch it before sending it back and canceling the DVD part of my subscription. Smiley: lol It was pretty good. Nothing terribly original about it, but solid casting and a good pace certainly made it enjoyable.

While not a movie, the last thing I recall watching purposefully would be the first two season of Breaking Bad. I've got season three on deck for the next time it gets so stupidly hot out that I refuse to leave the house. If you really have to have a movie, the last one that I can think of is Transformers 3, which was better than I thought it would be, but that's not saying much.

It was actually a good movie. Better than I was expecting, anyway.

Hmmm, last one in a theater would be Captain America. That's probably the most recent I've watched. I know I also watched Zombieland recently (again). And Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist. My reviews:

Captain America: Pro-America propaganda. It was over-the-top ridiculous. I enjoyed it, but also disliked it. I didn't think anything in it was stellar, but so far as action movies go it was pretty good. Would probably have had a different reaction if I had been into the comic lore.

Zombieland: Probably my favorite zombedy (I think it counts as that). I really enjoy it... and Emma Stone is hot.

Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist: Eh. I bought it for a dollar when Blockbuster closed and I realized I hadn't watched it yet. It was a typical Michael Cera-starred film. He played the awkward, bumbling hipster who will always seem like a teenager. Nothing special; not as funny as Superbad, nowhere near as amazing as Scott Pilgrim.


That reminds me, I need to buy Scott Pilgrim.

Yogi Bear. We watched (most of it) at the town park last Friday on a blow-up screen.

The movie was really dumb. I think the 3-D might have been kind of cool. There seemed to be a lot of stuff trying to fly out of the creased canvas screen we watched.

Watching the kids though made it all worth it. They laughed and rolled in the grass and imitated the bears.

Then it started pouring and we all ran away.

I don't recall watching any other movies this last weekend.

I liked Zombieland. Woody Harrelson's shoot-out scene at the end is every fps'ers dream. The first time watched, I predicted the fate of Bill Murray, but it was still a hoot.

I like the whole zombie craze. It's still socially acceptable to commit imaginary acts of violence on the undead. (someone is gonna complain sooner or later though)

I understand it wasn't well-received by the critics (and yet it got all those nominations?), but I found it quite enjoyable. Jolie and Depp didn't have much chemistry, but overall it wasn't bad.

Watched Source Code earlier this week. I thought it was pretty good, and an interesting premise, though I wasn't a huge fan of the ending. (If they had stopped it about 5 minutes earlier it would have been great.)

Dammit man! Put some spoiler tags on that. You just gave away the entire plot of the film! ;)

It was randomly flipping through channels, but the last film I watched was The Poseidon Adventure. The original. Hadn't seen it in years (decades?). Still relatively cheesy, but Gene Hackman pretty much always kicks some butt.

The last non random channel flipping film was The American. Slower paced than I expected, but kinda interesting flick. Definitely had a more old school feel to it. You pretty much spend the whole film knowing what's coming, and wondering if the main character's figured it out, pretty sure he has, but he's just going through the motions in a way that doesn't reveal anything. Then bang pow! Done. It was a bit too simplistic plot-wise for my tastes, but if you're looking for a slow paced, reasonably intelligent flick, and don't care about too much excitement or action, it's not bad. Most of the character motivations are implied rather than detailed, so if you like stuff spelled out for you or handed to you in direct dialog, you probably wont like it. But if you're sick and tired of film writers always spelling every detail of every character out to you as a means of appealing to the lowest common denominator you'll be happily surprised that this film doesn't do this. Still wish it had a bit more twist to it, but I guess that's what they were going for.
