So far, I've watched 3 of the 9 movies nominated for 2012 best picture.

The Tree of Life
Hugo
Midnight in Paris

I thought Midnight in Paris was boring. It might have a niche that liked it, but I wasn't included in it. So far 3 of 3 that I would not have wanted to see win the best picture.

Yawn.

Sorry, they don't count if you didn't watch them on VHS.

This is not really on topic - One thing my wife and I run into - we will have the daughters in for a movie night - playing an older movie that we saw "back in the day" and remember as a "good movie". We hype it up and then when we watch, we are appalled by the language or certain scenes. When I say appalled, I mean you don't watch it with your daughters. I guess it is just selective memory.

Fail. Overall, he found it boring - he's too used to the faster pacing of the PIXAR and Dreamworks animated films. Also, I remembered that the movie had a few "colorful metaphors", but I didn't remember how many.

He did laugh when the harpoon hit the Klingon ship. And, he's curious to see a Next Generation movie, since he has a Geordi La Forge action figure. Hmm.


Both my kids loved ST IV when we all watched it last year. I can't get them to sit down for even one episode of TNG though. Not enough space action, I guess. They're both complete Star Wars addicts.

I'm getting ready to watch the 2011 version of The Thing. I loved the other 2 versions. I can't wait to see how appealing this one turns out.

Those things that crawled into their brains scared the you-know-what outta me in "The Wrath of Khan."

The Thing 2011. Good movie. I liked it about the same as the 1981 version.

TNG: JP, don't show your son the episode "Night Terrors."

It's actually pretty freaky.
