hobbitofkobol: (MOVIES how to train your dragon)

on Friday I saw The King's Speech. BRILLIANT. It moved me, filled my eyes with tears, made me laugh at times, it was gorgeous (cinematography & music), the actors were perfect. Give Colin Firth his Oscar already.

Yesterday I saw Black Swan. I arrived 30 min early and there was no tickets left! The King's Speech was full too. Meanwhile, Rien à Déclarer was at 19:30, 20:00 and 21:00 and there was a lot of tickets left for each time. It made me feel like "yay people have good taste" (ok I admit I haven't seen this and shouldn't judge but...) but also "boo, why does it get so many theaters". Anyway, we bought tickets for the 22:15 Black Swan screening, which was full too in the end! I thought it was a great movie, it looked fabulous, the actors were amazing (omg Natalie Portman. But Vincent Cassel was A+ too, and Mila Kunis, and everyone). But it was really freaky and stressful so idk how much I liked it you know? And I'm no wuss but parts of it were really scary or made me cringe (not in a "this is bad" way! in a "eww" or "ouch" way lol). Can a movie move you and made you feel uncomfortable at the same time? Well yes apparently.

Now I need to watch sth in which Natalie Portman is happy and lives happily ever after because I felt so bad for her character. Will probably go see No Strings Attached haha.

And then today I saw The Kids are All Right, which was alright (haha) but pretty forgettable next to the 2 I just talked about or Inception for instance.

I plan to go see 127 Hours and True Grit in theaters in the next couple of weeks. And I have acquired The Social Network (I missed it in theaters) and The Fighter and Winter's Bone (will not be released in time here). I'm gonna watch at least one of these tonight.

And then I'll be ready for the Oscars (well the best picture category)! Which I won't be able to watch live this year but whatever!

I have seen 8/10 nominated movies so far (The Fighter and Winter's Bone) and The King's Speech was by far the best out of them. If it was up to me,it would win in all categories it is nominated in!

I still need to see True Grit and Winter's Bone. I have like NO interest in seeing The Fighter, but I guess I might if I have seen all of the others.

King's Speech <3333 I need to rewatch. GIVE THE MAN HIS OSCAR. YOU KNOW, THE ONE HE SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN LAST YEAR.

i had no interest in seeing the Fighter either but i LOVED it. i saw it more than once, that's how much i liked it. definitely recommend.

i'm not even interested in fighting movies at all - but it's more than a fighting movie, it's more of a drama with some fighting. i guess? lol

somehow i've already managed to see all 10 already - i've never seen them all, i'm quite proud!

127 Hours is fantastic, i've seen it three times already. The Fighter was another favorite :D

It's so weird Winter's Bone isn't out there :S it came out here in the summer and has been on DVD here for quite a while! Odd.

wow that's impressive, go you!

well it's often the case with "lesser known movies"... and sometimes they're not released at all! when they think there's no market for it here. Like for instance The Blind Side was released straight-to-dvd and Sandra Bullock got an Oscar for it! But I guess they thought no one would want to see a movie about an American football player here.

Black Swan was one of my favourite films of last year, but I agree that it's hard to say I LOVED it because of the content. I guess... appreciated it is a better word. I adored The King's Speech and True Grit as well. All I have left are 127 Hours, The Fighter, and Winter's Bone.
