Screen One – The Movie Screen – Star Trek: Into Darkness
What a fun ride! This movie didn’t let up from the moment it started until it ended. Action, action, action, and none of it dull. A real sensory overload and adrenaline rush. It didn’t hurt to watch it in IMAX 3D either. Loved the references to the old shows and movies, and I can’t wait for #3. I wasn’t disappointed and would see it again. In fact, I do want to see it again and again. Loved it! Loved it! Loved it!
Saw trailers for Enders Game and the new Superman. Superman looked snappy in 3D. There was also a movie called Elysium that I hadn’t heard of before. Superman interested me most… perhaps because of Henry Cavill.
Screen Two – Computer/Netflix – Indie Movie – The Giant Mechanical Man
Loved, loved, loved this indie movie on Netflix. This rom com charmed me completely. Indie movies are my new thing on Netflix. I would watch this again too. It had magic — when I actually remember a movie and think about it. That doesn’t happen very often for me. Two for two so far on this list.
Screen Three – TV – Dracula
I’ve been seeing the charming JRM [Jonathan Rhys Meyers] in my sidebar on Facebook for days. His compelling stare broke me down, and I clicked [now he no longer haunts my sidebar - dang]. The trailer for this new TV show coming this fall made me squee like a tween with front row tickets to a Duran Duran concert… OK, in modern terms, it’d probably be Justin Bieber.
JRM, the Downton Abbey people, and The Tudors people? On NBC? And why are you making me wait until Fall cruel, cruel TV people? Anyway, they’ll have to work really hard to make this stink up the airwaves . Yeah, I’m excited.
