There are characters I find sexy... like Jax Teller or Mr. Darcy... but I don't really become hooked onto the celebrity portraying the character (Except for Brad Pitt who I have long time adored... and used to get irritated when my mom would tease me that she was just as close to his age as I was). Then I saw Thor and fell in instant lust with Chris Hemsworth.
My husband actually got jealous as I blatently gushed throughout the movie. I think that's a first for him. Ha.
Besides the fact that Chris Hemsworth will make you drool... the movie is excellent too. The other worlds are stunning. And it is based on the mythology which I love. This is definitely a winner in my opinion.
Marvel has made some serious good movies lately.
Has anyone seen the latest X-Men? Also a winner. Probably the best X-Men thus far.
And then I also saw Bridesmaids, which I had heard a lot of good things about. Wow.... what a freakin' dissapointment. It had some funny lines - but I felt like they were trying too hard; it felt forced. Though, there were certain lines that had me laughing so hard I had to push pause so I could hear what was being said after. So I wouldn't say it was horrible or even bad, just not what it was cracked up to be. I can't believe all the fuss Bridesmaids got. Apparently my facebook friends (where I get this sort of info...) and I are not on the same page as far as movies.
I usually wait until movies are released to DVD to see them, but now that I have a job I might scrap up a few pennies to go see Killer Elite and The Help during the cheaper matinees. Although, there are a lot of movies that just hit theaters that I'm looking forward to seeing in a couple months when they are available on DVD. Like Drive and Moneyball. Man - I miss the days where if I wanted to see a movie I just went and saw it. But really, if that is what I'm complaining about then my penny pinching woes are seriously not bad!
What about you? What has recently been released that you've seen and enjoyed?
