I really need to stay away from Ryan Gosling on Neflix. Why do all his movies disturb me?
Let’s just say I no longer feel bad for him in Blue Valentine after this one. I liked it a lot even though I didn’t understand the title or why Ryan started cross-dressing toward the end. I was so confused. I had to rewind to see if I missed something. (He makes a really ugly woman, by the way.) I didn’t know it was based on a true story until the end. I had to look up the real story online afterwards (at least that explained the title and the cross-dressing). I could have gone without learning the real-life dude lives in Florida. Why do all the crazies gravitate here?
If you haven’t already guessed, my movie watching is still in full-force between episodes of Deadwood. Hubs and I went to see Man of Steel on Saturday night. I loved it, hubs did not.
***SPOILER ALERT*** (Jump past the Really gif if you don’t want to read.)
I hated the Brandon Routh version, so I’m surprised I liked this one. Although, I couldn’t help but wonder how much it would cost to repair the city with all the buildings that Superman was slamming into. Like, damn Superman, use your head. Tax payers are footing that bill. Not to mention the casualties in those buildings. Superman saves one guy, then flies straight through and topples populated buildings for like an hour killing who knows how many people, then it only took breaking the villain’s neck to defeat him.
We also saw World War Z on Sunday and both liked it a lot. Then I had a horrible nightmare that night in which I woke myself up because my scream in my dream translated to a real life scream. Although, my real life sleeping scream sounds more like a pathetic dog cry, but still. It woke me up. The movie wasn’t even scary (it was more tense like War of the Worlds) but I guess when zombies can leap at you like an NBA player dunking a basketball, it leaves an effect on your psyche.
Finally, I watched Nobody Walks (another Netflix movie). I’m still not sure what that title means but it has my imaginary husband in it, so I gave it a shot.
I wouldn’t recommend it. Basically everyone has a crush on someone else that doesn’t have a crush on them, things get awkward, and everyone gets hurt. But people definitely walked in that movie – physically and metaphorically, so what the hell, title?
Oh well, 80 minutes of my life gone but somehow I couldn’t stop watching. It was still worth it for John Krasinski, even though he played a cheater.
And that was my weekend. Please tell me you did something more exciting.
