    So, what movies have you seen recently? New or old, doesn't matter. What did you think of it?

    Caught The Hangover 3 yesterday...eh. It was mildly entertaining, not nearly as good as the first (the second wasn't good either).

    I recorded The Great Gatsby and I think I've watched it...four times? I wasn't sure about it at first but I'm loving it now, really cool movie.

    I've seen Frozen about six times as of late? I have an addiction. Other than that, I haven't done much movie watching...too addicted to American Horror Story.

    I haven't gone to the movies in a while, which is unlike me.

    I've been more into my TV shows.

    I watched "The Amazing Spiderman" the other day out of complete boredom. I liked the first movies, but was very 'eh' about this one. Don't quite understand why they're doing the movies basically all over again with a new actor? But okay.

    Oh, Dallas Buyers Club was great.

    I tried to watch About Time but got bored and turned it off.

    My soon-to-watch-movie-list: American Hustle, The Great Gatsby, Saving Mr. Banks.

    just decided to start watching Lost... 10 years late. haha.

    So yeah... no time for movies at the moment at all. Barely time to sleep.

    Last movie I saw was Wolf Creek 2. I didn't really like the first one, the second one didn't do anything to change my opinion.

    I see movies for free, so like.. all of them. New and old. New releases I usually get to check out a couple days to a week before every one else and somehow I never saw American Hustle. :p

    Sherman and mr Peabody, mildly entertaining...not worth the theatre, lol.

    The husband and boy went to see divergent and they liked it, I didn't go because the book was so bad I couldn't get past chapter 6.

    RIPD because lol, its stupid and you don't have to think to watch stuff blow up and fall apart.

    Movies I currently have, and will watch later

    Her (definitely the next movie I'll be watching)
    City of God (it's a fairly old movie)
    Lost in Translation (Netflix/old movie)
    47 Ronin (eh, I'll watch it for the pictures, don't have any hopes for this one)
    Ender's Game (had this for a while but still have yet to watch)

    Movies that I've watched within the last month

    American Hustle - it was good! Overhyped, a little exhausting to watch, but I did honestly like it. I'm pretty bleh about Amy Adams but still adore Jennifer Lawrence, and think Bradley Cooper and Christian Bale are great.

    The Wolf of Wall Street - really good movie, I've probably seen it 3 or 4 times now, mostly rewatched with friends who saw it for the first time. Definitely a lot of fun and entertaining the whole way through.

    Frozen - obviously. I'm the first to complain about new Disney movies. I found The Princess and the Frog completely uninteresting and disliked the music. Tangled was corny in all the wrong ways, even for a Disney/kid's movie, and very forgettable. Brave just... was an abomination. Bad, bad movie, 0/10. I went into Frozen thinking I'd hate it, but I ended up loving it. Plus, Idina Menzel wins it all the points, so there.

    Thor 2 - eh. It was a Thor movie. What else? It was something to watch, and now I'll probably never watch it again lol.

    The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
    - I really liked this movie! Ugh, the photography and filming style was so stunning. Great soundtrack, beautiful landscapes, some really well framed shots and a generally cute, feel good movie.

    Warm Bodies - older movie than the others but just got around to watching it (and then rewatching it several times recently). Haha like I said before, I'm definitely a chick flick girl (and a huge fan of Nicholas Hoult from Skins), so I loved it. Didn't think I would because the premise was stupid, but I did.

    Oh, and I totally rewatched The Emperor's New Groove on Netflix, and I blame that entirely on Fran (and just how awesome that movie is anyway).

    I'll probably watch the 300 sequel and Noah, which is coming out in a few days. The latter (Noah) looks like it'd be pretty on the big screen, and I like the cast, so it should be worth watching. Might go see Divergent, but the book was such crap that I don't know if I can watch the movie without automatically disliking the characters. Might be The Mortal Instruments all over again (terrible books, possibly even worse movie, which I didn't think was possible).

    I watch a lot of movies :eek:

    Yes. So much this. I've watched it SO many times, even in just the last few weeks. Saw it twice in theaters and a bazillion more times later when the download... er, legitimate DVD copy became available.

    Aw! I liked that movie. Obviously it isn't well thought out or anything spectacular, but corny chick flicks are so my thing, and I totally cried at the end. I thought it was really charming, but I'm also a fan of Love Actually, which my sister despises.

    Yes. The Tobey Maguire ones were pretty... bad. To put it lightly. But Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone? Yes, please! I've been a fan of Andrew Garfield ever since Never Let Me Go.

    I watched it by myself. ;) I pretty much only watch movies with my boyfriend, and he's not into Disney so much (though he loves romantic comedies, so I don't complain much haha).

    Watching Disney movies alone is awesome. I can dig into the songs and replay them if I feel like it. Pretty sure I replayed Let It Go like three times during Frozen.

    Last theater trip was Rocky Horror Picture Show a few weeks ago when my daughter was home on spring break.

    Before that, we hit a double-feature (sort of - just stayed and watched the other) and saw Lego Movie followed by Robocop.

    At home, we've watched tons of movies. Love having the 7.1 surround system.
    Catching Fire
    Odd Thomas
    All 6 Star Wars movies
    Jurassic Park trilogy
    Pitch Perfect
    Gravity
    Planes, Trains and Automobiles

    And I'm sure many more that are slipping my mind.

    Hmmm....the last movies I watched were over the weekend when DH wanted to have an Austin Powers marathon and I said, "Only if I'm drunk." :p Made them barely tolerable, at any rate, although I distinctly remember telling him numerous times, "I'm DRUNK, and that still isn't funny." :rofl1:

    I do want to go buy Frozen and watch it. And Catching Fire, as well.

    I am JEALOUS. I still haven't seen that in a theatre.

    Catching Fire and the new Hobbit are the only movies I've seen recently.

    I don't watch many movies, because busy. I saw Frozen last time I was watching Finn! There were a few other movies, too. Heck if I remember them :p

    Watched The Croods or whatever with Allie when I was there for... reasons. Pet Expo, maybe? I wanted one of every animal.
