Another Batch of Movies

weather: rain
outside: 6.6°C
mood: ...
Some from the transcontinental flights, some from recently:

I caught a glimpse, but I'm infinitely glad I didn't have to sit through the ass-hattery that was Sharkboy and Lavagirl () — I'd shudder, but I'm afraid I'll break my neck.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory () — Johnny Depp plays Michael Jackson! *awkward* Yay. Uh-kay. Let's move on. XD

School for Seduction () — It sounded interesting enough to suck me into watching and was mildly interesting, but not great.

La Marche de l'Empereur () — As far as penguin documentaries go, this one wasn't a very good one. I know I've seen better. The footage wasn't especially brilliant. I understand what it was trying to accomplish, the dialogue was done with the three voices in a dramatic/storytelling kind of mode, but it didn't work for me.

Æon Flux () — The Æon Flux animated series is the userinfoHusband Guy's favorite. I remember I only liked some parts of some episodes. The rest was all coked up and pointless. But I heard this movie was good and I liked it.

My favorite bit from the MTV series was fishing out a tiny scroll of paper with a message on it, from the mandibular second molar that was hollowed out to be a lidded storage compartment, with the tongue, while french kissing, on a moving train. And unfortunately, that exchange was disappointingly buh in the movie, but there were other really cool details that they did do well.

Skeleton Key () — Well, Kate Hudson wasn't as annoying as I thought she'd be. I couldn't help it, it kinda showed promise in the middle. "Hoodoo"?! AAAHAHAHAHA!!! XD

I've heard the French version, which is the original, is a bit tedious. The American studios didn't like it. They kept the same cut of footage but brought in the Voice of God and storytellers and that became the American version: March of the Penguins. I felt that was one of the best films of last year. It was very cute, a bit sentimental and totally projected all the human feelings we have about love and family onto cute penguins.

The tediousness might have been what I was reacting to as well.
