My Movie Confessions – My Film Views Blog-a-thon

Nostra at My Film Views is at it again with yet another fun blog-a-thon. This time we’re talking about *movie sins* that we all have committed but has been reluctant to admit… that is until now :D

All I had to do is answer these questions below, so let’s get on it shall we?

Which classic movie don’t you like/can’t enjoy and why?

This is easy. Spartacus! For a long time I had been curious to check it out as it was supposedly made because Kirk Douglas had wanted to star in Ben-Hur, so this is supposedly his way of ‘I’ll show them’ kind of reaction to William Wyler (per IMDb trivia).

Well sorry but I don’t think this film even came close to the masterpiece that was Ben-Hur in so many levels. Mainly I just don’t buy Douglas in the role of a slave who leads a revolt against Rome, and I found the whole thing to be so darn boring, and that’s something coming from a big fan of swords & sandals genre!

Which ten classic movies haven’t you seen yet?

There are sooo many but these ten represent those I REALLY want to see fairly soon [in alphabetical order]:

  1. An Affair to Remember
  2. Cat On A Hot Tinroof
  3. Citizen Kane
  4. It Happened One Night
  5. Lawrence of Arabia
  6. Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
  7. On The Waterfront
  8. Singin’ in the Rain
  9. Some Like It Hot
  10. The Apartment

Have you ever sneaked into another movie at the cinema?

No, I just don’t have the energy to see two movies back to back even if I wanted to.

Which actor/actress do you think is overrated?

This is an easy one also, and I wholeheartedly agree with Novia’s picks of George Clooney and Brad Pitt, especially the latter. In fact, I’m so bored with him that I haven’t seen any movie starring Pitt in quite a while now, I think the last one I saw was Spy Game which my friend lent me. I just don’t find him attractive at all or even THAT talented, and I’m so sick of seeing him being put up on such a pedestal by the the media and bloggers alike.

As for the actress, well if you’ve read my Breaking Dawn and Snow White and the Huntsman reviews, obviously it’s Kristen Stewart! I’m absolutely baffled as to why she’s in so high demand, I mean the girl only has about two facial expressions, either nervous or despondent, that’s pretty much it! [shrugs]

From which big director have you never seen any movie (and why)?
I’m embarrassed to say that have not seen any work by Ingmar Bergman nor Akiro Kurosawa. Not sure why really, just haven’t got around to any of them. Any suggestions?

Which movie do you love, but is generally hated?
Ahah, well my friend Ted and I made a post of a dozen movies we secretly adore. But out of the recent ones, I guess it’d be John Carter. I don’t LOVE it enough to buy the Blu-ray but I gave it a 4/5 and as I’ve said in my review, it’s unfairly judged because of its terrible marketing, but it’s actually quite entertaining.

Have you ever been “one of those annoying people” at the cinema?
Not really. I always turn off my cell phone just before the trailers starts, nor do I kick the chair in front of me, etc. I mean it’s just basic courtesy stuff. I’m surprised how many people don’t seem to know or practice them though.

Did you ever watch a movie, which you knew in advance would be bad, just because of a specific actor/actress was in it? Which one and why?

Oh yes. I think we all have certain actors we adore that would make even bad movies watchable. One such movie was Beautician & The Beast which I rented solely because Timothy Dalton stars in it, even with that hideous mustache and silly premise, the movie ends up being quite fun. Yes, I could even endure Fran Drescher’s voice if you can believe that! No, I did NOT buy the movie. Hey, even I’ve got standards, ahah.

Did you ever not watch a specific movie because it had subtitles?
Nope. I came from Indonesia where most Hollywood movies have subtitles, so I’m used to that. In fact, I much prefer that over dubbed movies, now those I absolutely refuse to watch.

Are there any movies in your collection that you have had for more than five years and never watched?
Hmmm, I actually do have quite a few. I’ve started collecting Blu-ray discs now so a lot of my DVDs have not been watched in a while. In fact, I haven’t even watched Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves that I bought at a used bookstore over five years ago!

Which are the worst movies in your collection and why do you still own them?
Well that’s what guilty pleasures are all about, right? I have a couple Gerard Butler that fit into such categories: Lara Croft: The Cradle of Life and Attila the Hun, both are a must for any GB fans ;)

Do you have any confessions about your movie watching setup at home?
Well, my hubby actually does all of the set-up in our entertainment room in our basement, I’m quite technically-challenged in that department, ahah. We had the wiring done for surround speakers when we built the home and Ivan set it up in such a way that those unsightly cables aren’t visible. I don’t have a TV on the upper level though, so that’s why I hardly ever watch stuff unless I specifically make my way downstairs. Some of you might find this weird, but I generally don’t like watching full-length movies on my laptop. I prefer to settle nicely into my sofa when I’m watching something :)

Any other confessions you want to make?
Not really, I think I’ve made some embarrassing confessions already, ahah. Well, ok so just one more. I think I’ve watched less movies now that I’ve started blogging, but the upside is that I appreciate them all the more.


Well that’s it. So what are some of YOUR movie confessions? Come on, fess up :D

  1. I can’t believe some of the classics you haven’t seen. Singin’ in the Rain!!! That’s one of my favourite films. And Lawrence of Arabia, On the Waterfront and The Apartment, too. Love ‘em all. Citizen Kane is every bit as brilliant as critics say it is, so see that one too. All are among my one hundred favourite films.

    No Bergman or Kurosawa? Hmm. I’ve seen 40 Bergman movies, so I like to think I know my stuff with this guy: try The Seventh Seal, Wild Strawberries or Fanny and Alexander. The three best films to start with from that director. As for Kurosawa, I’m not as well versed with him (I prefer other Japanese directors such as Yasujiro Ozu), but Ikiru and Ran are amazing films. Rashomon and Seven Samurai also get a lot of attention, but I don’t think they’re as good as Ikiru or Ran.

    • I know Tyler! Shame on me huh? I knew a lot of these are people’s favorites, and they could easily become mine too!

      40 Bergman films??! Oh my! Ok, I think I read your writeup of Fanny and Alexander before, I’ll start w/ that. I think Seven Samurai is what I’ve been hearing most about Kurosawa, but I’ll give Ran a shot also. I guess I’m just not into Asian movies for some reason, despite my origins :)

      • Hey if you don’t like asian telling of The Seven Samurai you can always watch the western remake… The Magnificant Seven.

  2. Nice confession Ruth, I’ve never seen any of Bergman’s or Kurosawa’s films myself, so you’re not alone. As I mentioned on Terrence’s website, I’m not a big fan of gasp… Albert Hitchcock, his films are good but I was never into them like some other directors in his generation, for example I love most of David Lean’s films.

    Wow Beautician & The Beast, I totally forgot about that movie. Poor Dalton, I wish his career as leading man would’ve been successful, he’s such a great actor. I watched The Rocketeer you lend me and he pretty commend every scenes he’s in, Billy Campbell couldn’t hold a candle to him. I was actually rooting for his character to win since the hero’s such a lame actor.

    • Ha..ha.. yeah I saw your comment about Hitch. Well I’ve only seen a few of his work and whilst I think those are great, I can’t exactly rate if he was a maestro or not. Man I still need to see Lawrence of Arabia!

      Ha..ha.. yeah Beautician & The Beast is quite ridiculous but Dalton managed to make it watchable. Oh I know, he rules in The Rocketeer, I mean he stole the show from Campbell. Sinclair is kind of like Hans Gruber, the kind of dashing villain you root for!

      • Lawrence of Arabia is finally coming out on BD in November, can’t wait to pick it up, waiting for it to come to BD for years. Just FYI, the film is long so you’ll need to set aside a few hours to watch it.

        • Yea, can’t wait!!!!!!!!! When I saw the restoration in the theater in ’88-’89 there was an intermission complete with the original music.

            • Oh really? Is that by AMC? If you have the link to that Lawrence of Arabia theatrical run info, I’d appreciate it, Dave. I missed the Singin’ in the Rain one last month :(

              • Sony Pictures. The announcement from Sony just broke on the 19th. The week of Oct 4th for the theatrical screening is the only info out there so far. Will be sure to let you know when I hear anything.

                The film is a biopic set against the backdrop of an Arab war in the desert during the early 1900′s and there’s a lot of speculation that T.E. Lawrence was asexual, having no sexual relations at all though leaning toward homosexuality if anything. So I guess there’s not a lot of room for women in that one. LoL.

          • I’m jealous that you saw Lawrence of Arabia on the big screen, do you remember if it was on the 70mm screen? There aren’t any 70mm theaters here in MN and I think there are only a few left in the country. I think there are two or three in CA and one in NY.

            I might check it out on regular 35mm screen here if the local AMC theater will carry it.

            • Ted, my guess is that it wasn’t on the 70mm screen. Not sure we (Pittsburgh) even had an IMAX theater back then. It was in a single theater with red velvet curtains and gold trim not unlike in an opera house. Sadly it lost business to the multiplexes and closed. It was still amazing. The shot of the extinguished match cut to the desert landscape, the sunrise appearing across the horizon, the train sabotaging (“no prisoners”), the ocean liner in the desert, Omar Sharif’s entrance and the attack on Aqaba were quite something to see.

  3. Well Lawrence of Arabia is my favorite film so I don’t need to bring up that one. Talk about a guys movie… there’s not one female speaking part in the 3 1/2 hr movie. It’s safe to say they will never make one like this again.

    As far as Citizen Kane goes watch it and THEN read the backstory behind the making of the movie. The story of the making of Citizen Kane is one for the ages and a big reason why it always comes up No. 1 on a lot of lists. The wiki page is a good resource on the story. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citizen_Kane . Most people generally see the movie and wonder what’s so great about it without knowing the full story.

    My embarrasing omissions are Gone With The Wind and any Chaplin films.

    Also the film I loved that everybody hated was the Haneke’s original Funny Games (’96). Too brutally violent for you Ruth. Most people missed the point on that one. He wanted you to turn off the film or walk out. He was trying to show what people are willing to sit through in the name of “entertainment”.
    ***Spoiler Alert*** In one clever scene he rewinds the film after something good happens and it looks like the family is going to get away. Then he lets it play out where the bad guys win. People just hated the “rewind” moment. Not for the faint of heart. Recently Cabin In The Woods had a clever commentary on horror film violence running through the movie.

    • I guess I should have mentioned the doc The Battle Over Citizen Kane if you can has it. It’s on the blu ray disc and possibly the dvd. Good stuff.

    • No female speaking part in the entire movie?? Wow, that’s quite something. I guess classic films could get away w/ that. I know in 12 O’Clock High, the only speaking female was the nurse and that was like 2 seconds! :)

      Oh I have seen a few Chaplin silent films and GWTW is one of the first Hollywood movies I saw.

      Thanks for the warning about Funny Games, yeah sounds like it is too brutal for me. Citizen Kane however, I do want to see and that documentary sounds good too!

      • If you can, be sure to watch Citizen Kane again with Roger Ebert’s commentary. It’s the best commentary EVER! It’s absolutely amazing that he knows so much about that film, simply superb.

          • Well, I can always sneak CK on to my NF queue for you… btw I just added three classics I’ve always to see. Birth of a Nation (1915, I know some of the subject matter is very disturbing, but it’s one I’ve always been curious about), The Jazz Singer (1927, The Artist really inspired me to see this finally, the first feature with sound – music/singing and some dialog) and Wings (1927, first feature to win Best Picture). Wheew, quite a list I must say ;-D

            • Hi PrairieGirl and Dave, you both are so kind! Thanks Dave, but PG will lend me the movie so don’t worry about sending it to me, I really appreciate it! I should check with my local library also on the rest of the classics. I plan on watching ‘em in order I list here and then blog about ‘em and talk about which one lives up to the hype, he..he.. Thanks again, I really appreciate the kind offer!

  4. Really? You think Pitt is over-rated? He knows how to pick movie though, and he is usually very good. I just can’t see eye to eye with you.

    Recently, his roles in Moneyball and Inglourious Basterds, but very different roles as well, are great.

    • Yes, extremely overrated. Sorry, I know people will comment on that but hey, to each their own. We can’t always eye-to-eye with everyone on everything :) I don’t like baseball nor Pitt so I don’t feel like I’m missing out on not seeing Moneyball. Inglourious Basterds was great because of Christoph Waltz, Michael Fassbender and Melanie Laurent… and I only saw Fight Club because I like Ed Norton.

  5. Pingback: Movie Confessions Blogathon « My Filmviews

  6. I enjoyed John Carter too. Didn’t think it was great but still won’t mind the previously planned sequel.

    What about Brad Pitt in Fight Club? Tyler Durden is one of the most coolest cinematic characters in my book.

    The final confession: “watched less movies since started blogging but appreciate them more” rings true to me too.

    • I wouldn’t mind seeing the sequel of John Carter either, thought that probably won’t happen.

      Durden is cool but I think it’s more on the way the character’s written. That’s probably one of his best roles though, I give him that.

  7. Your “set-up” sounds brilliant. Love to have a nice little purpose room for film watching. I can’t stand watching films on a laptop either. Now that I’m all networked up in my house, anything on my laptop, I watch on my TV.

    I’m with you on Brad Pitt. He’s a fair enough actor. A couple of times he’s made me think, ok you’re quite good, but looks aside, I’m not a massive, huge fan. He’s done some good films, but he himself in roles never blows me away.

    • Yeah, I just think films are better to be watched on the largest screen possible and when I’m downstairs, I don’t get distracted by other things. Plus it’s a lot cooler there and I like to watch films in a darkened room as well, so I turn off all the lights :)

      Yay, finally a girl who gets why Pitt is overrated. He’s all right I suppose, but the disproportionate adulation definitely turn me off as there are dozens better actors that get overlooked. Take TROY for example, the only saving grace for me is Eric Bana!

  8. You don’t rate Clooney or Pitt? I’m shocked. I think they are both very good. Particularly Clooney who can go from comedy to drama effortlessly. Think how different his roles in O brother Where Art Thou? and Burn After Reading are to say, Solaris or Michael Clayton. In The Descendants he combines a bit of both.

    • Clooney I can still get behind, I like him in The Descendants, Michael Clayton, Up in the Air, oh and also One More Day. I think I’m tired talking about Pitt already, I just don’t like him, it’s a matter of preference.

      • Fair enough. Preferences are allowed. I’ve always been quite keen on Pitt. I thought he marvellous in 12 Monkeys, Seven and Fight Club and I think I caught a glimpse of him in Glasgow last year, while he was filming World War Z. It might not have been him (maybe his stunt double) but I seem them shooting it anyway. It was quite exciting.

  9. You must try to see Singing In The Rain, it’s absolutely fantastic.

    Beautician and the Beast? Wow, the title alone is so bad it must be brilliant.

    • Yeah I missed out on the AMC Singin’ in the Rain screening, bummer!

      He..he.. well Beautician and the Beast is not brilliant, but quite fun :)

  10. Hi, Ruth and company:

    I still enjoy Frank Miller’s ‘The Spirit’. For the look and feel of Wil Eisner’s inspired Central City. Also the film’s shadowy, gorgeous femmes fatale. Even if the concept and execution of ‘The Octopus’ was entirely wrong. Not for Samuel L. Jackson’s efforts, but for showing the face of The Octopus. Which never happened in Eisner’s comic strips and books.

    Gabriel Macht (TNT’s ‘Suits’) does a good job portraying detective Johnny Colt and ‘The Spirit’. Though the film’s major mortal sin was completely leaving out comic relief and sidekick, Ebony White.

    Despite all these flaws, I’ll still watch it when I feel like a fix of nostalgia.

    • Oh I still haven’t seen ‘The Spirit’ yet, so you recommend that Jack? I just heard that it was terrible so I haven’t got around to seeing it. Seems like the retro visuals is worth watching though.

      • Hi, Ruth!

        I wouldn’t recommend ‘The Spirit’ unless you’re a fan of Miller’s ‘Sin City’-like computerized snowy, rainy back photography and sets. Or Wil Eisner’s comic artwork. Though if rolls around, give it a look.

        • Oh I do like Sin City’s visual style. Is ‘The Spirit’ as violent or more? Now that’d be what make me reluctant to see it.

          • Hi, Ruth:

            The violence in ‘The Spirit’ is more comedic and much less graphic than ‘Sin City’. Almost verging on the ridiculous with The Octopus’ penchant for multi-barrel weapons. Because The Octopus has “Eight of Everything!”

            Easily matched by transferred Baltimore officer, Morganstern. Briefly played, accent and all, by pre ‘Castle’ Stana Katic. And her belief in ‘Overwhelming Firepower’.

  11. Your confession is up!! hahaha I laugh so loud reading your Brad Pitt answer…Just like you I can’t stand him both in movie and other show. I once watched him Oprah, I tried to be neutral but still he annoyed be so much.

    I think I am lower than you ;) I still own the worst movie just because of him

    • He..he.. I love that you’re in my camp about Pitt, Nov! I don’t care what anyone says, I just think he’s annoying and NOT attractive at all.

      He…he.. so what’s the worst movie starring Cillian, well besides In Time?

      • You should add arrogant too…that interview with oprah shows how arrogant he is…trying so much to show ‘I am a superstar’.

        Hmm I wouldn’t say worst but I am having hard time to see The Edge of Love again.

  12. Brad Pitt?! Say it aint so! He is so awesome. The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Fight Club, Snatch, 12 Monkeys, Moneyball, Inglourious Basterds, The Tree of Life. At least one of those performances must have convinced you of his talent, no?

    • Yes I’m afraid it is so :) I haven’t seen a lot of the movies you mentioned *because* he’s in it. The rest I’m willing to give him a shot because of the other actors/filmmakers involved. He has talent yes, I just prefer to watch someone else if that makes sense.

  13. I used to be unimpressed with George Clooney and Brad Pitt, too, but I’ve recently started to appreciate them more, after having seen them in more offbeat roles (e.g. Burn After Reading, Inglorious Basterds, The Men Who Stare at Goats)

    • Ah, Stephanie, I agree with you completely. I love those three quirky films too, especially Clooney and Pitt in Burn After Reading

      • Hi Stephanie, welcome to FC! I’m still curious to see ‘The Men Who Stare at Goats’ The trailer looks like a hoot! I don’t mind Clooney as much as Pitt for some reason.

        • I prefer Clooney to Pitt any day too, and MWSAG is a trip… it’s loosely based on a real U.S. government program (oh, and when I think of what they spend our taxes on, oh my!), and GC is really fun in it.

  14. What a fun post! No confessions here, just a comment. A wonderful list of classics you want to see. I’ve seen them all, so will love to compare notes as you do your countdown.
    And we’ve been to enough movies together that I can personally attest to the fact that you are, indeed, a very polite movie-goer ;-D I can’t think of even one reason to not site near you in the theater!

    • Oh come on, I’m sure you have some confessions! Like ANY movie w/ Rufus Sewell would be watchable no matter what genre, right? Even horror! ;)

      Oh well, same to you Becky! :)

      • Oh, I DO have confessions, but am just saving most for another rainy day… but yes, I’m busted, I’ll watch ANYTHING Rufus is in, no matter how bad… I mean I watched Extreme Ops, for heavens sakes. Yikes!

  15. I’ve only seen Rashomon from Kurosawa. I can’t really get myself to watching his other films especially the famous Seven Samurai. I’m not sure I can’t survive three hours of watching samurais fighting.

    Out of the ten you haven’t seen, you should star with the last three. They are wonderfully acted and really fun.

    I came from Indonesia too, so I’m used to watching subtitled films.

    As for overrated actor and actress, my picks are Sean Penn and Emma Stone for right now. Don’t really see what makes them special.

    Interesting confessions you got here :)

    • Hey I had no idea you’re from Indonesia too, very cool! Where in Indo? I’m from Jakarta.

      So all Kurosawa’s work are samurai films? Heh, I’m not a fan of those or martial arts movies, that’s probably why I haven’t seen any of his work.

      Oh I can’t stand Sean Penn either and I think Stone is just the novelty factor as she’s fairly new. I actually don’t mind her.

      Hey, why don’t you post your own Movie Confessions? :)

      • Your recent comment brought me here again and I completely forgot to reply.

        I used to live in Bekasi. I’m studying now in college.
        If you’re not in the mood for Kurosawa, you should try his other fellow legendary Japanese director Yasujiro Ozu. His films are mostly family drama and they are great.

        I think I’ll make my own Movie Confessions. Could be very interesting. :)

        • Hi Fellow [wish I knew your name;)] Oh cool, I left Jakarta for college as well, where I met my hubby who actually went to the same jr high, ahah.

          Yes do make your own Movie Confessions post. Let me know when you have that up ok?

  16. Ruth, I have to agree that Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life is bad news. Still, I get it because Butler is in it. I love the fact that you saw The Beautician and the Beast for Timothy Dalton! Have you seen him in Flash Gordon?

    As far as classics, you’ve got an exciting list there: It Happened One Night, Signin’ in the Rain, On the Waterfront, The Apartment, etc. Wow! It’s going to be a lot of fun for you to catch up with those movies.

    • It’s not a complete waste for me as Butler is just so darn hunky in TR2, absolute eye candy material :) Funny that in the first one the boy toy was Daniel Craig, she certainly got an upgrade, ahah.

      Oh yes I like Flash Gordon mostly for Prince Barin, I mean Dalton in his prime, my goodness!

      Yeah, I can’t wait to catch up on those. Maybe I’ll do it in order here and blog about it when I’m done :)

  17. Bergman recommendation: Seventh Seal
    Kurosawa recommendation: High and Low

    Those are some more accessible works, even though Kurosawa is known for samurai movies, High and Low delivers on all levels.

    Also, I would find it weird if people were more accustomed to watching movies on their laptops/computers. I just can’t do that. I don’t even like watching TV shows on my laptop unless that’s my only option.

    Glad you did the confessions too! I love reading these

    • Thanks Andy, that’s very helpful to start w/ the director’s most ‘accessible’ work.

      I feel that watching stuff in your computer just lessen the experience. It’s fine if it’s a short or featurettes, but movies longer than 20 min is just better to be seen on a real TV screen.

  18. Great post. Just thought I’d let you know as I looked through your posts I noticed a few on Jmae Bond. I have recently down two posts on it, just thought you’d like to know.

  19. Ingmar Bergman – Out of the movies I’ve watched I like Fanny and Alexander the best. I’m in the process of watching Summer with Monika. Seventh Seal just didn’t hit me well the first time.

    Akira Kurosawa – Seven Samurai for Action / Throne of Blood or High and Low for Drama. Every movie I’ve watched of his I’ve enjoyed though.

    • Ok, second recommendation for ‘Fanny and Alexander’ so I think I’ll watch that one from Bergman first. I’m not much of a Samurai movie fan, so High and Low might be more for me.

  20. haha. well, Spartacus def can’t stand up to Ben-Hur, but I def wasn’t expecting to see that as your answer for a classic that you can’t stand! haha

    You know I support your “love” for Kristen Stewart! :)

    • Yeah I guess I knew it’d be hard to top Ben-Hur but still I didn’t expect it to be THAT bad. I actually fast forward it a few times as I was so bored with it!

      He..he.. I REALLY don’t know if I can trust people who think K-Stew is a great actress :)

  21. Nice read. I wasn’t bored with Spartacus, but I don’t think it’s the great film it’s purported to be.

    Though I don’t love every film on your 10 classics list, I would definitely recommend all of them.

    Please check out Bergman. You just have to. :)

    I’d rate John Carter 3/4. It’s fun.

    • Thanks Josh! No, not great at all, I always scratch my head every time I hear people praise Spartacus.

      Yeah, I’ve got some Bergman recommendations here so will do :)

      Glad you agree about John Carter.

  22. You should see Moneyball, Pitt was absolutely amazing in this one! Woah, Kurosawa really doesn’t have many fans in blogosphere based on that blogathon :)

  23. Don’t feel too bad, Ruth — I’ve only seen half of the classic movies you mentioned. Out of them, I think The Apartment is still my favorite. It holds up remarkably well today.

    Not a fan of Pitt or Clooney, huh? I like both of ‘em quite a bit. ;) But I agree on Stewart! I don’t get her popularity at all, Twilight or otherwise.

    • Sounds good, Eric, I have a feeling I’d enjoy The Apartment from what I’ve been reading. I don’t mind Clooney as much, though I still think he’s overrated. Stewart really shouldn’t be in the acting business!

  24. I agree with you when it comes to sneaking into another film. Two hours is enough of sitting in a dark room for me, never fancied watching films at the cinema back to back.

    • I know Dan, I think the only times I saw 2 movies back to back was during NY eve double feature a long time ago, not really a fan of doing that.

  25. I love classic films that everyone picks as those that they haven’t seen. I’m surprised that Some Like It Hot is so often among them. Anyway, I hope you enjoy those movies, they are splendid.

  26. Finally have found some time to check out your confessions!
    I probably have seen Spartacus, but can’t remember much of it, so can’t say whether I liked it or not.

    Haven’t seen 3 of the movies out of the 10 you mention. My favorites among those are Some Like it Hot and Singin’in the Rain, hope you will check those out soon!

    You don’t like Pitt and Clooney? I think Clooney has hardly made any bad movies the last couple of years.
    As for Kristen Stewart, I only saw her in Snow White, so can’t judge on her (yet).

    As you know I liked John Carter too and I’m not afraid to say so! Agree with the marketing (even made a post about it)

    Hahaha, you and your Gerard Butler crush :)

    I’m opposite of you, since I started blogging I have watched more of them!

    • Hi Nostra, nice to see you stop by. I figure you’re super swamped with your mighty popular blogathon :)

      Yeah Clooney sure knows how to pick his projects, but he’s not as versatile as people give him credit for. I think there are far better actors who get more love than him and Pitt. K-Stew on the other hand is just bad all around and I’ve seen 3 movies of hers so I think that’s enough for me to judge her acting skills.

      Glad you’re w/ me on John Carter. He..he.. yes I do love the Butler :)

  28. LOL you own Tomb Raider for GB!!! :D

    But anyways, I, like you, despise to watch movies on the computer (despite having a humongous screen) and much prefer to see it on the TV the way it should be.

    And your list of classics you haven’t seen is very similar to mine. I’ve only seen Citizen Kane out of that 10!

    Fun blogathon :)

    • He..he.. [sheepish smile] He makes it watchable, Castor, sooo darn hunky AND he’s got his Scottish accent intact ;)
