Weekend Roundup – Back from blogging break

Hello everyone! Hope you had a nice weekend, yeah I know it’s Tuesday already so you’ve probably forgotten all about it, ahah.

Well, I saw the Prometheus chatter all over Twitter though I did hear that it got beaten by Madagascar 3 at the box office by about $10 mil! (per BoxOfficeMojo) Man, those animated kids movies really are a force to be reckoned with, but at least the Ridley Scott alien flick still ranks 10th amongst R-rated movies with $51 mil, so not bad business at all.

Logan Marshall-Green’s uncanny resemblance to Tom Hardy is out of this world!

I haven’t got a chance to read any of your reviews, yet. I literally only had time to check my email for a half hour since last Friday night, so suffice to say I didn’t have time to blog nor watch any movies. But I really had a great time hanging out with my best friend [we’ve been good friends since we were 13!] and seeing her on her graduation from De Paul University. Walking around downtown always reminds me of Nolan’s Batman movies, too, I should probably order those tickets for The Dark Knight Rises soon!

I also got to meet my blogging friend Kristin from All Eyes on Screen blog, who is as awesome as her always well-written and original posts, like this one she did on Five Memorable Courtroom Scenes, inspired by her first-time viewing of To Kill a Mockingbird, yay! That’s right Kris, better late than never. It was lovely meeting you and chatting with you, always so blessed to meet a like-minded people who share the same passion, in movies and otherwise. I hope you’ll visit MN soon, girl, I’ll take you out shopping for sure! 🙂

Well, the closest thing I got to some movie watching is catching a snippet of several movies playing on TV: An Officer an a Gentleman, a decent Navy drama starring a young Richard Gere in uniform [yowza!] and a race-car action flick Driven starring Sylvester Stallone & Burt Reynolds, which undoubtedly deserved all the Razzie awards they were nominated for in 2002, especially for Estella Warren who has no business in the acting industry. But this TV series from the early 90s Jailbreakers should’ve won a Razzie version for TV as well, I was alternating between admiring Antonio Sabato Jr’s exquisite face to cringing on his dumb acting. I think anything with Shannen Doherty is naturally cringe-worthy. It made me chuckle to see Adrien Brody in that show, glad to see he’s come a loooong way since then.

Well, that is my lame weekend movie viewing, folks. I’m 100% certain you’ve seen far better movies than I did, ahah.


So what does your movie-viewing weekend look like? Did you get to see Prometheus?
