Troy, Van Helsing, Honey

I haven't written about any movies in a while. We saw Van Helsing a while ago; Troy today; and Honey was rented. No spoilers.

Troy ()

I guess I was completely in the wrong frame of mind to be watching this movie today. Maybe it was the overabundance of Pretty Boys™, but I stopped paying attention and started watching for all kinds of other things. Thoughts:

  • Ladies and Gentlemen, I cannot impress upon you enough, the importance of scanning your downloaded software for viruses.

  • OH! OH! That... that was his HEEL!!! I GET IT!!! BWAHAHAHA!!! XD =D =D That's still the dumbest thing I've ever heard. What, his mother couldn't turn him right side up and dip the last part of his foot into the river? Maybe she wasn't allowed to double-dip.

  • My, Rose Byrne (Briseis) has beautiful hands. Yes, there's a hot'n'heavy scene, in which, one nekkid body belongs to Brad Pitt. And I'm noticing her hands. If I've ever given you the impression that I was kinda normal, I am truly sorry.

  • A Greek dude with an Sheffield accent. I think I shall have a mild nosebleed.

Van Helsing ()

I have Russian co-workers. I hear Russian-ish English every day.

I'm not as sure that the accents were bad. I don't know how different Russian, Romanian and Ukranian accents sound in comparison. But I did notice how incredibly bizarre it was for perfect English colloquial grammar to be applied onto the supposed Eastern European accent.

One example is, they won't transpose the subject and verb in question form.

I like Brad Pitt in interesting roles, like Jeffrey Goines in 12 Monkeys and Mickey O'Neil in Snatch ("iss fer mee meeeeeeeeehhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!") XD

But it's kinda like the Leo DiC syndrome. Playing Achilles, the Pretty Boy Superhero Who Can Kill Everyone And Boinks The Girl, was too easy for him. I guess he needed a quick infusion of easy money now that Jennifer Aniston isn't getting her regular paycheque from Friends. *shrug*

I didn't really care for Snatch, but Mickey was cool. I don't think I understood a word he said the entire movie.

Oh, and Leo looks constipated more than sexy.

I understood a little and it was better when he repeated stuff =) But yeah, I needed the subtitles =D
