A recap of this weeks screenings. Proof in writing that I watch too many movies.
Agatha Christie's Marple: a great British production, though I only like the episodes with Julia Mckenzie as Ms. Marple. I want her to be my gran!
Gun Fever: A low budget western...this one was hard to watch and I'll leave it at that
Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie: If you've seen any Tim and Eric, I don't have to say much about what to expect with this one
The Borrowers: late 90s film based on the book.. the book that I LOVED as a girl! John Goodman is in it and though it's geared towards kids, it's pretty watchable
Ken Burn's Thomas Hart Benton: if I'm being honest, I was never a big fan of Benton's art, but this doc was pretty good (of course it was, it's Ken Burns). Made me realized how much I like Grant Wood though (think American Gothic).
The Devil's Mistress (or The Devil's Whore, depending on which side of the pond you are on): This was an average period drama about the English civil war. It was pretty good in parts, and kind of contrived in others.
The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas: Dolly Parton, Burt Reynolds. This is the first viewing of this one for me... I enjoyed it. Especially the Governor's singing number, it was the best!
Deadliest Catch: This show is addicting, and I do love to see a hardworking man!
Immortals: Based on a Greek myth, lots of green screen but... also Henry Cavill, so it balances out! Great visually but a plot like a maze, of course I was stitching while watching so that didn't help
Wild in the Streets: I didn't really like this one too much.. the characters were clownish and annoying. Think 1960s, 'don't trust anyone over 30', drug culture flick. It did have Shelley Winters, and a crazy young Richard Pryor though..
