Library Loot

library-lootI’m wicked proud of myself.   I watched at least 12 movies in the last week.   Including all five of last week’s library loot.  Hell yeah.

Band of Outsiders was fantastic.  I really enjoyed it.  So much so, I checked out more Goddard this week.  I’m trying to convince my sister and brother-in-law to dress up as the three main characters with me and learn the dance they do in the cafe.  My bro-in-law brought up the idea, but I think he was joking.  Please watch it here.

Leaving Las Vegas was pretty good.  I was entertained.  This movie was suggested to me as proof that Nic Cage can, in fact, act.  I agree, he made a terrific drunk man.  But the plot felt a little contrived.  Still, chalk one up for Cage.

Having not seen the the Godfather trilogy has been one of my biggest embarrassments as a film buff.  Now, I’ve finally seen them.  I enjoyed the first installment, but I am reserving final judgement until I’ve seen it at least one more time.  Part II was much more accessible for me, and I definitely liked it the best out of the three.  It held my attention better than any film has in a long time.  I’m not sure why part III has such a bad rep.  Sure it wasn’t as great as the first two, but I thought it was still a decent movie.  Despite that whole operatic ending.

I definitely got over confident this week and rented probably more than I’ll be watching.  The first to get sacrificed will definitely be the Tarkovsky film.  If it comes to that.
