LOVE movies, films, DVDs, videos. Even when I don’t love specific ones, like three I’ve seen in the last four days.
Didn’t like Gone Girl. Twisted, bleak, diabolical. Felt depleted after watching it.
Enjoyed This is Where I Leave You — but it’s forgettable. Formulaic, predictable, the requisite dysfunctional family and sex banter.
Didn’t appreciate H.G. Wells’ Things to Come, which I saw yesterday. Could appreciate the wondrous (for their time) special effects. Just not a fan of science fiction or futuristic tales. Better enjoyed the talk and dinner afterwards with a couple of film profs and two friends.
Really appreciate the ability of directors, photogs, editors to tell stories for what used to be called “the big screen.” It’s an art.
