What have you watched lately?

According to fans of the book, they agree.
Many pointless changes were made, apparently.

I'm watching Battlestar Galactica (2004). Getting close to the end of season 2. Some silly business, but as my friend says it's all about hot chicks & half decent sci fi... so how bad can it get? It passes the time.

I think Kenneth Branagh no longer belongs in the "Trusted Director" column.

I don't have access to any tv stations, so I had my wife send me a bunch of DVDs. Last night I watched Blues Brothers. The line where the police using excessive force to apprehend the Blues Brothers kind of has a new meaning now.

Was that her way of telling you she wants a divorce?

Had a mini Ian Holm movie marathon with The 5th Element and Time Bandits. Also, I watched the behind the scenes features on the Stripes and Animal House dvds.

Patriot’s Day. The Mark Wahlberg movie about the Boston Marathon Bombing. Pretty straightforward telling of the story from both the bombers and police perspectives. Wahlberg’s character is a made up amalgam of several people so he could be everywhere, but he wasn’t played up as some supercop that took them down singlehandedly. Better than I thought it would be.

21 Bridges. The Russo Bros and Chadwick Boseman team up for a typical cop drama. Dirty Cops is such a cliche, it’s not even a difficult “plot twist” to discern anymore. It was mediocre.

Doctor Sleep. The sequel to The Shining. Meh.

Yesterday. Guy wakes up after getting hit by a bus and is the only person in the world who remembers the Beatles. So he starts performing their music as his own. Had higher hopes for it. The premise sounds fantastic. The film was okay.

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. This almost didn’t feel like a Tarantino film, but it was fantastic. Probably my favorite out of his last 4-5 films(if you count Grindhouse). Knowing a bit of history about the Manson Murders, I was NOT expecting that ending.

Also, my son “discovered” Quentin Tarantino recently when he watched Pulp Fiction, so we did a QT marathon last weekend; Reservoir Dogs, Jackie Brown, True Romance, both Kill Bills, and Inglourious Basterds. He also watched Django and Hateful Eight while I was at work.

If I watched Dogs with Tom I would struggle not cracking up during the diner scene & outing myself for being the disgusting cretin I actually am.

I watched Hamilton with the Mrs. Neither one of us had much of an idea as to what we were getting into. We both liked it.

Here are a few I've watched recently:

Top Secret - This movie is kind of underrated. Also, I can't think of many other Val Kilmer comedies.

Adventures of Baron Munchausen - According to the "Cheap DVD buy" thread, I bought this in 2008. I don't remember watching it. But, I really liked it.

UHF - This is one of those movies that have actors I've seen before, but couldn't tell you where. Other than UHF and Seinfeld, I can't think of another movie or tv show I've seen Michael Richards in. Victoria Jackson was kind of hot back in the day. To no one's supplies, there are a bunch of jokes in this movie that might not be quite as acceptable today. Something I didn't know was that Trinidad Silve, who played Raul, was killed in an auto accident before they finished filming and the movie had to be rewritten.

Heavy Metal - After watching the movie, I checked out the bonus features. There was a "making of" where they overlaid the animation over the live action model they used. It was pretty dead on, except the animated character had a couple body parts that were significantly larger than the model's.

Batman (1966) - Didn't know that Julie Newmar was replaced as Catwoman for the movie because she was busy filming something else.

Battle Beyond the Stars - A space version of Seven Samurai due to the popularity of Star Wars and Battlestar Galactica.

Cannonball Run - It had been a really long time since I've seen this, so it was practically like watching it for the first time.

My God that is weird, I was JUST thinking about Top Secret & how funny it was.... and wondering how we had never had a discussion about it here at Vynnie's.

Not too many beastiality jokes getting past the producers these days.

I've been meaning to watch it for a few months. The marketing guy my office one day randomly asked me if I ever heard of Top Secret. He is one of the few people in my office that are in their mid-late 40s. Almost everyone else is either over 50 or under 35. I watched Airplane! a few weeks ago, and Top Secret is just as good.

That movie should've gotten some sort of award for the backwards scene. It's amazing.
