Movie Monday

Before you all start telling me off for falling off the post-a-day band wagon before it had even got rolling, I should have made it clear: I meant a post every week day. Part of the reasons I stopped the Roasts was that they were just taking up to much of my weekends.

So now we’ve cleared that little misunderstanding up, what to talk about today?

Well, I am feeling rather 🙁 because lots of Americans have been hiding from me. I’m starting to think I smell or something! Perhaps they know if they get me on the phone I will lull them into a false sense of security with my cute British accent, then *wham*!

Or not. Still, it’s hard to stay cheerful after a week of no responses. Sob.

Now, despite the fact I haven’t written a Roast in a long, long time, I still collect links constantly. So I figured Monday could be Movie day? Lots of trailers (I know this will please Abi at least!)

Up grumpy old man, ballon, kid. Sillyness.

The Cake Eaters

Funny People – I’m on the fence about this one. Could go either way.

Public Enemies – Johnny Depp and Christian Bale. Come on!

Love the Beast – Eric Bana being silly about a car. Adorable. And hot.


Ghosts of Girlfriends Past – I must have been in an odd mood when I bookmarked this one.

Dragonball Evolution – even my love for James Marsters, which is pure and never-dying, cannot make me want to watch this movie.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen – I found myself trying to defend Transformers 1 at my brothers BBQ on Saturday. That will teach me for trying to convince geeks the film was good! I just like Michael Bay, ok? Hot men, women, cars, robots, explosions… There is nothing else I NEED in my movies!

Alien Trespass – one for Moose with her B-movie obsession I think 😉

500 days of Summer – so the synopsis doesn’t do it for me, but I enjoyed the trailer

Merry Gentelman

The Escapist – supreme cast. Let’s see if they can pull it off.

Easy Virtue

My Sister’s Keeper – not a fluffy by ANY stretch of the imagination, and stiring some emotions I’m not sure I want stirred in a public cinema. But definitely one for a DVD in the privacy of my own room with a big box of tissues!


Cheri – doesn’t Michelle Pfieffer ever AGE?

The Princess and the Frog – clearly, you’re never too old for Disney…

And I think that should keep you all going! See you tomorrow 🙂

  1. I saw the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen trailer at the cinema the other and it looks gooooooooooood! I was there watching Star Trek – very silly and enjoyable, but not a particularly good film.

  2. Do you just need hot men in a movie, or do the women, cars, robots and explosions have to be hot too? (I suppose explosions will almost always be hot.)

  3. Moose – I saw Star Trek too. It was great. Just so enjoyable, as you say. I had a grin on my face the entre way through. OK, so there were plot holes you could drive that big spiky Romulan ship through, but I don’t care. It was so much fun!

    David – you can mix and match. It’s not a direct correlation, but generally, the more categories of Hotness you cover, the better the movie. So a film with a hot man and woman will be better than a film with just a hot man. On this scale, it is possible for a film with a hot car, robot and explosions to be better than a man/woman combo. This is entirely depends on the cars/robots/explosions… Humaniform robots would, of course, solve the dilemma 😉

    I should point out, I don’t JUST like movies that fall firmly into the Michael Bay cannon. But I do enjoy them a lot…
