So, the last time I was at the movies was when I saw Toy Story 3 on the 13th of September 2011.
Last night, I saw Prometheus on the late late show with Johan and Peter. I had to drink two double espressos before I went in cause it started at 23:20 and I have been working all day and it is a two hour movie.
There are no spoilers here:
I must say the 3D experience was absolutely mind blowing! I have been complaining in the past times I've watched a 3D movie that all is fine and well but many times everything gets blurry and rather shaky. Well, that is a thing of the past. At least with this particular movie. There were some moments, in the beginning, I thought I was flying! I felt it in my gut that I was lifted from my bloody sit. God damn it is SO beautiful! Worth every penny! (And every extra penny for the comfy reclining sit)
One down side is that I had completely forgotten how cold it can get in the movie theatre. I was fucking freezing. Great ventilation, breathing really good as if I was on oxygen, but I froze my ass off. Next time I'm bringing an extra sweater.
The movie. I really really really enjoyed it. I have a lot of complaints about some continuation issues, flimsy naive story, rather week dialogues here and there, but the journey was incredible! The production value was impeccable! A visual marvel! And the Gigerpalooza just pure poetry! I loved it!!!
The characters ... well ... not because I am naturally evil, but ... I don't think I have ever disliked the main characters of a movie this much. The villains were my heroes and the main characters, the good guys, were a pair of infected testicles with syphilitic pustules. YUK! I fucking hated them both. One, a fucking disgusting hippie who believes in Santa Claus. And the other, an uncivilized hick with shit for brains. I could say more but then that would include spoilers so I'm shutting up. Whatever. I don't wanna think about it cause it makes me angry. Besides that, I would see it again in a heartbeat! It is a bloody journey to that other place! I'm quite satisfied :D
Now lets' see ... I still haven't seen Dark Shadows so maybe it is time this week! :D
P.S. I must say the experience of not going with my previous movie buddy was rather bizarre, and a little sad for a moment. I guess I yet have to discover bizarre, slightly melancholic moments, as many of my activities included that buddy. It feels he was imaginary ... Ah well ... shame ... But life is funny that way no?
For now, it is raining outside and soon I'll have a warm hug to attend to ...
