Movies watched in 2010 (or thereabouts)

Yes, I'm behind. This is catch-up.

  • Date Night (2010): Loved it!
  • Koyaanisqatsi (1982): I liked this. So did the kids, surprisingly enough.
  • Powaqqatsi (1988): Not as good as the first one.
  • Naqoyqatsi (2002): Even less good than the second one, although the kids liked it because of a couple of scenes from video games.
  • Robin Hood (2010): So good.
  • Au Revoir Les Enfants (1987): Second time seeing it. It's good.
  • Bright Star (2009): Apparently kind of forgettable.
  • Back to the Future (1985): The kids hadn't seen it before. They loved it, and it was fun to see again.
  • Outsourced (2006): Okay
  • Hotel Rwanda (2004): Very good. Moving.
  • Leap Year (2010): Somewhat enjoyable fluff.
  • Whip It (2009): Very good.
  • The Incredible Hulk (2008): Meh.
  • Groundhog Day (1993): Kind of fun.
  • Pizza (2005): Pretty good.
  • Amreeka (2009): Very good. Zed saw this at his Arabic camp at BYU, so we watched it while he was there.
  • Amélie (2001): Cute. We'd had the soundtrack for a while, which is excellent, and I think the movie was a little disappointing after that.
  • Bridget Jones's Diary (2001): I love this movie (and the book), but I'm not necessarily proud of that.
  • Pasta (2010): A Korean TV series. I went through a phase, okay? This was my favorite one, I think.
  • My Lovely Sam-Soon (2005): Another Korean TV series. Funny.
  • Boys Over Flowers (2005): Another Korean TV series. She picks the wrong guy, and the guys dressed and looked like '80s New Wave pop stars, but I liked it.
  • Triumph of the Will (1935): Leni Riefenstahl's Nazi propaganda movie from 1935. Jon made us watch it. Definitely interesting.
  • Rocky (1976): This is a great movie.
  • Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (1988): So funny.
  • The Ramen Girl (2008): Okay.
  • Bad Love (?): Another Korean TV series. This one went on for too long, but I liked the characters.
  • Something Wicked This Way Comes (1983): A good, scary movie from my youth. I love Ray Bradbury.

  2. Groundhog Day, like the protagonist, improves with each iteration. Watch it again! :)

  3. We watched Baraka, and it was prettier than Koyaanisqatsi, but I don't think I liked it better. I'll review it at some point. Greg, I don't know if I believe that. Bill Murray always reminds me of the movie What About Bob? Which is a great movie, but he's so very annoying in it.
