Movies, Movies, Movies…

Right after a post about how I’ve been taking some time off films and not watching anything, I go ahead and watch four movies in a 24 hour time frame.

First was a rewatching of Scorsese’s Gangs of New York which I haven’t seen since I first bought it a couple of years ago. Then the doco This Film is Not Yet Rated which was suprising, funny, informative and made me also scratch my head at the oddity that is the MPAA. Dinner with the folks and finally, I went to see The Simpsons Movie which was just great. There must be something wrong with audience members these days, I seemed to be the one laughing the most at so many of the gags in that film, yet so many seemed reserved in enjoying themselves. Douches. And finally, I just finished watching Ozu’s Tokyo Story, which I’ve always read great things about and great it certainly is. Such beautifully composed shots and such a simple story with so complex characters, I was moved to say the least.

Now to consider finally watching Flags of Our Fathers or set it aside for another night and get some of that thing people call sleep.
