"Louie, the Lilac"
Every bit as awesomely ridiculous as I remember.
"Some day, I'm going to control the flower market of the entire world! And with it, the Flower Generation!"
O yes. :beard:
(I always wonder if it's a sign of schizophrenia if Louie is one of my favorite Batman villains, though I'm such a "realistic Batman purist" that I can't stand him being in the Justice League.)
I watched Easy A and Paper Man over the weekend. I didn't realise that Emma Stone was in both of them when I pulled them to the top of my Netflix queue. I really enjoyed both of them and I have to add that I'm glad that I saw both of them on the same weekend. I now have a huge appreciation for the talents of Ms Stone. I'll be keeping an eye on her going forward. Well done!!!
Yes, Emma Stone is quite talented, I suspect she will go far. I really enjoyed Easy A, despite the standard romantic comedy aspect of the film. She really made the movie.

I also recently watched "Saw VII" which was awesome!
Finally, I started watching "Dark Skies" the old TV show from the 90's. It wasn't quite as good as I remember, though still entertaining.
I began watching "The Girl Who Kicked the Hiornet's Nest" but wasn't into it, so I will need to begin again. It is an excellent series, but foreign films are those things you have to be ready to watch, if you are distracted at all you lose it.
Black Sunday and Two-Minute Warning. I watch these two 70s movies every year on Super Bowl weekend.
Juggernaut. A mad bomber planted numerous unique bombs on a transatlantic cruise ship, and it's up to Richard Harris and his bomb disposal unit to disarm them. A lot of well-known British actors (and future SW alum) are in this 70s flick: Anthony Hopkins, Ian Holm, Julian Glover.
Although watching Rocky V was tempting on AMC :eyesroll:, I instead decided to go with Just Friends.
I watched Couples Retreat the other day. All in all another solid movie from team Vaughn/Favreau.
Went to the dollar theater and saw Unstoppable. That was a great movie. Denzel Washington was great. I'm really starting to like Chris Pine. Hoping news will come out soon on a sequel to Star Trek.
Just finished up Winter's Bone, bringing my Best Picture viewing tally to 8/10.
Dark, depressing, but very well acted flick. Well deserved nomination for Jennifer Lawrence.
I'll finish up the nominees by watching The Kids Are Alright on DVD tomorrow afternoon, followed by 127 Hours at the theater tomorrow evening.
Over the past few days (in order):
I was in the mood for cop fairy tales....
Oh, I still need to watch The Enforcer and Sudden Impact. I wonder why The Dead Pool isn't sold alongside the first four?

*Shadows - A movie by John Cassavetes, also in the same class. It was sort of improvised and had a loose, unstructured feel, which was more interesting than maybe it sounds. Pretty good.
*Blade Runner - They were going to watch a somewhat related movie in the indie film class, though I missed it thanks to a screwy alarm clock. I wanted to refresh myself on this one, and hopefully see a different version, though we ended up with the same 1992 "Director's Cut" version I had already seen. I liked it better this time, though some of it is still a little hard to follow.
*The Big Lebowski - Everyone's always saying great things about this, though I had never seen it before. I enjoyed it quite a lot. I wouldn't call it the greatest ever (as many people seem to revere it), but it was definitely fun.
*General Spanky - An "Our Gang" feature set in the Civil War. There was some pretty racist stuff, but I guess nothing unexpected given the time and content. Still fairly fun, though it was weird having the Union be the antagonists.
