Movies 2010, Weeks 28-30

Finally!  I've watched enough movies to justify a post!  It's only taken 3 weeks!  Lol.  I'll do better... maybe.

July 25- 31, 2010
159) Lucky.  Documentary about people across the country who won the lottery and the effect on their life.  Not really groundbreaking.  Too many stories.  The opening was too quick fire where people started running together.  How many I won and I'm weird stories can you hear?  There was only one person I actually liked out of at least 5.  There was at least one I COULD. NOT. STAND!!  Difficult to watch that.  There was another one who really creeped me out.  3.2 stars
160) Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark.  The classic film that it turns out is older than me!  Wow!  Which explains some of the bad CGI!  Lol.  But I can absolutely see why people love this movie.  I got weary of the endless action sequences.  I know... I'm terrible.  I still think it's a good movie.  4 stars

August 1-7, 2010
161) Kevorkian.  Documentary about a congressional run by the man known as Dr. Death.  I can't say I was terribly intrigued by the idea of watching his run but when I heard it would also include other things about his life, I knew I'd want to watch it.  This film really shouldn't have even been billed as that since that wasn't the interesting thing.  Strange but definitely worth watching from a nosiness and interestingness of character perspective.  Just a tad too long at the end.  There were a few quotes they could've just left out instead of letting the film drag when it seemed like it had already ended.  4 stars

August 8-14, 2010
162) Back to the Future. Michael J. Fox stars in this film about a time machine.  From the first 10 minutes I was hooked.  Holy 80s movie!  LOL!  I know what you're thinking: how could you have POSSIBLY never seen this movie?  I've seen bits and pieces of course but watching it all the way through = a great joy!!  Loved it.  I'm only going to subtract for the "Oh there's GONNA be a sequel" moment at the end.  4.7 stars
163) The Thin Man. The first of the classic detective films starring William Powell and Myrna Loy.  I completely understand why people love this movie.  Delightful.  And I'm going to need a few of her outfits.  Thank you ever so much.  4.5 stars
164) Easter Parade. Film starring Fred Astaire & Judy Garland.  WOW!!!!!  Fred Astaire's dance in the opening number = AMAZING!!!  But how much make-up did they put on him to try to make him look younger?  Made him look older.  I hated her country clothes.  Wow.  Really bad.  The film over all?  Meh.  How disappointing considering its Astaire and Garland.  3.4 stars

What 3? I had a pen and pad so I could write down a few. Lol I've always liked "Back to the Future".

I've been stuck on this "Valentine's Day" movie. I thought it was just too cute. I watched "Insomnia" for the first time. It was okay.

You JUST saw Back to the Future?? All of my witty references to flux capacitors have been wasted on you until now?? Sigh.

Geesh, you're making me feel old with this one. I think we went to see Raiders of the Lost Ark after prom one year...

Nerd... lolol. I had seen bits and pieces so I got the reference but... just seeing the whole thing. After prom??? Rashan tells me movies he took dates to see when I was in utero.
