    A bunch of movies were on tv last night that my parents watched, as I finished up the Bravely Default demo:

    Castaway (been a while since I'd seen it)
    Blown Away (there was this hilarious cheesy early 90's effect I wanted to find on Youtube, but couldn't find it :p)
    The Big Hit (forgot I've seen parts of this movie before... super cheesy!)

    Been waching a bunch more movies on my trip cause the weather's bwen crappy :/

    The Cowboy Way: old 90's movie action/comedy cheesiness. Not bad though.

    The Zookeeper: Wasn't really paying attention (was playing Dillon). Predictable of course and without the dumb animal parts, wouldve been a mediocre romcom. Still wasn't as terrible as I thought, for a Happy Madison movie (and I saw Jack and Jill... I really am like Ammy! It was for science! I guess...)

    Kick Ass 2: Pretty good! Not sure why Jim Carrey was so opposed to doing it, it had a good message and stuff, despite the violence.

    We Bought a Zoo: Tonight's feature. Not bad. Of course the real zoo it's based on isn't even in America when I looked it up (UK).


    My parents like channel surfing a lot, so I don't count movies I only see snippets of.

    I watched the first Harry Potter movie from the blu-ray set I got. The special effects don't look too great anymore since the movie is relatively old, but overall it looked incredibly perty on blu-ray. Really looking forward to watching the rest of them.

    Speaking of Harry Potter, I'm glad I own the Canadian version (despite text from the billingualness taking up all the room) because it's the proper PHILOSOPHER'S Stone version :p They filmed the movie with the actors saying Sorcerer's Stone in the American version, didn't they?

    Oh, the other day I watched The Princess and the Frog. Was pretty good! Glad Disney Studios is making a comeback :)

    Yup, American version is Sorceror's Stone. I never understood why they changed it when the Philosopher's Stone is a legitimate, well-known artifact.

    I'm glad I waited on getting the blu-ray set (and not just because I got it for an excellent price :p). The original version of it was really cheap--they just took the discs from the individual releases and slapped them in a box. Most of the movies said Disc 1 in the original releases, and Deathly Hallows Part 1 was just a black disc with the title on it. In the set I have the discs don't say Disc 1 anymore (except for Half-Blood Prince for some reason) and Deathly Hallows Part 1 has a picture on it that matches with the rest of them. :)

    Watched Nymphomaniac two days ago. It was much more than a porn, and makes you think about a lot of aspects of socialization and life.

    Wasn't it because philosopher might sound boring to younger kids, as opposed to sorcerer?

    Since I finished Professor Layton and the Last Specter, yesterday I watched Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva, since it is the next in the series. Aside form Viz's SUPER lazy localization, and the fact that they did not redub the movie with the NA voices, it was really good! :3 Excellent animation, some neat puzzles, pretty cool action scenes... it was a really good movie. :3 The pacing in the beginning is off, but after that, it is pretty smooth. Like most of the games, it has a touching ending... got me rather misty. ;~;

    The movie is on Youtube for anyone who wants to see it. :3

    I really hope they make another one. :3 Seems like they might, or were at least thinking about it.

    (Prof Layton movie is also available on Amazon and Rightstuf for $8-10... I can't help but support anime/manga in the same way I support games, both being niches... >_>)



    Yup! The BOOKS too, in fact were even localized! Many British terms were taken out of the books and replaced with more... American ones, so kids wouldn't get confused. *kisses Canadian set, based on the original writings^^* (I like the original covers better, too...)



    Anyways, I've been following my whole Disney movie thing with watching The Princess and the Frog (not bad!) and watching The Hunchback of Notre Dame for the first time in many many years. One Disney movie where the tons are almost more for adults than small kids, really.

    Oh wow...I'm speechless before the movie Frozen. I watched it in canadian French yesterday with my boyfriend. I'm so moved by this movie that broke every clichées you can find in normal Disney's movie. that song Let it go. ''Libérée, délivrée'' in French was so beautifully done, lyrics, graphics, timing and magic. It was simply magnificient.

    If you didn't see this movie...What are you waiting? If you love animated movie, this is THE movie! I'll definitely buy this one in blu-ray. This will be for my kids (and myself) someday. It's the next ''Lion King'', I mean by that that it's different from all that was before and will be remembered for the next twenty years to come.

    But yes, the Let It Go scene is excellent. Definitely one of the best parts of the movie. Glad you liked it, Bleu. It's a great movie.

    Watched the second Harry Potter movie today. This is something I noticed while rereading the books earlier, but it's very interesting how the book/movie with Tom Riddle's diary is the same one where Dumbledore mentions that Voldemort attached part of his soul to Harry. ;)

    Since I have been spending more time on animes and games, I only saw very few films since my previous post.

    Films - Last Completed Movies

    Blue Crush 2 (USA): 6/10 - February 6, 2014.
    Rigor Mortis (HK): 7/10 - February 5, 2014.
    Sex Duties Unit (HK): 7/10 - December 26, 2013.

    Blue Crush 2: A PG-13 film about surfing and has quite a few songs throughout the film. I got it mixed up with Into the Blue, thought the film was about mafia, diamonds, and drugs. Apparently, both movie series are about bikini babes on the beach and has the word "Blue" in the title. Honestly, I don't like this film at all. Supposedly, I'd say that it deserves 5.5/10 but I don't like rating half-scores.

    Rigor Mortis: There were few good Mao Sha (Cantonese version of Onmyoudou) battles in the film. There were vicious ghosts and a vampire. One good Mao Sha exorcist and one evil Mao Sha exorcist. Due to various bloody scenes and horror, this film should be rated 18+ in my opinion; not sure what the actual rating is though. The actors are all well-known ghost/exorcism film stars from the 80s and 90s. And so, the male actors range from 50s to 70s in terms of age. People who don't like old actors and/or old actresses will dislike this film. I have a relative (60s) who chooses Korean drama in a very picky way; she refuses to watch the ones that feature 30s or older actors/actresses claiming they are too old. Personally, I would recommend Rigor Mortis if you are an adult who likes Mao Sha exorcism battles or have an interest or two in ghosts/vampire horror. My father used to like this sort of stuff.

    Sex Duties Unit: An 18+ ecchi comedy featuring yaoi but you don't get to see yaoi scenes. You see innuendos. Since I am straight, I decreased the score of the film by two points from 9/10 to 7/10 because a good 45 minutes are about homosexuality. There is hard on and masturbation.

    Just finished updating. Removed all the rating entries my father watched and I only saw glimpses of. Added the ones I watched recently.

    http://www.imdb.com/user/ur44009564/

    I have seen possibly over 800 films and tv drama series in my lifetime but I only did 729 ratings as of now because I don't remember all the films and tv drama series I saw back when I was a kid. Some of them are not in the IMDb to begin with. Anyways, I started watching films and tv drama series when I was 3 years old.
