I made it out to the movies this weekend!
First up was Thor 2, which ends up actually being called Thor : The Dark World. It's a little early to tell, but I think the Thor series might be the best of the Marvel movies. The humour is more genuine instead of forced (Like in the dreadful Iron Man 3), and there is just a lot going on with the characters (as opposed to Iron Man 3 which had too many Iron Man's for anyone to really give a shit). So I chalk this one up in the WIN column and look forward to more Thor! They had a preview for Captain America : The Winter Soldier. or Captain America 2 as I like to call it, and it appears to have a chance at being a winner as well. Huzzah for marvel superhero movies that aren't stupid boring like Iron Man 3! Oh, and I'm in love with who ever played Natalie Portmans sister. 3.5/5
Second was Bad Grandpa. Look, if you don't like Jackass you wont like this one. I love Jackass, and I liked this one. Not as consistently funny/entertaining as the other Jackass films, it still had some dead-hilarious laughs and I'll be buying it to force my friends to watch it. I think the main reason I didn't love it more was due to trailer spoilage, a plague that continues to thwart us film fans to this very day! 3/5
Still watching Star Trek with Dad since he's laid up with a broken arm/cancer. Mum watches the odd one, and she informed us early that she didn't like the show because William Shatner was a creep. So last night we're watching and:
Mum: Who's that guy on there?
Me: Which one?
Mum: The good looking guy in the chair.
Me: Captain Kirk?
Mum: Yeah him, what's his name?
Me: William Shatner
Me: Yeah, the guy you hate.
Mum: He's pretty good, but the show still makes no sense.
My mum is ridiculous.
