Oh Look, Krill!

Oh don't worry. Whales don't eat clownfish, they eat krill.

Back To Back Movies:The Dark Knight & HellboyII


I never understood the reason for having professional movie critics because the whole movie watching experience is subjective. You either like if or you don't. Not all of us care about how the movie was shot, or the technical aspects of the movie. To me, movie watching is not just about the story but the feelings, the characters and the whole experience of it.

So anyway, I did another back to back movie thing on Saturday. It would have been a trio of movies if Mummy 3 was already released. I was feeling a little movie-d out by end of the day. I have yet to make up my mind about the movies but here's what I like:

The Dark Knight
1. Christian Bale – His presence is enough to make me want to watch it.

2. The Tumbler bursting forth the bike thing.

3. Billowing cape

4. Brooding hero

5. The Joker was definitely creepy. Awesome, but creepy at the same time.

Hellboy II
1. Hellboy himself. That dude's funny.

2. Abe sapien falling in love, getting drunk. He's so adorable, even though is all blue-green and kinda fish-like.

3. Magic

4. Elves

5. Funny lines

6. Selma Blair looks good in the short hair do.

Overall, it wasn't a bad day. I would have been tremendously better if it wasn't for the irritating people in the show. The two kids sitting in the row in front of mine could not sit still or even shut up. Their mum was sleeping, SLEEPING IN THE THEATRE WHEN CHRISTIAN BALE WAS ON SCREEN. The nerve of her to not pay attention to his hawtness. If I'd been in the same row, I would have already told them to shut the fuck up, like I told the kid when I was watching HP & the Prisoner of Azkaban, but that's another story. The couple sitting beside me didn't make it enjoyable either, with all the munching of the popcorn, the rustling of the plastic bag and the talking, OMG, the talking. It's a good thing they shut up just as I was about to turn to tell them to keep quiet. There would have been blood if they didn't. I take my movie watching very seriously.

Next double movie outing for me would be the X-Files movie and Mummy 3. Maybe. I guess.

  1. I was not a big fan of the Batman release. Disappointed. Hellboy 2 looks awesome but have not yet seen it. Can’t wait for Mummy 3 – Brendan is hot when he’s all sweaty!

  2. @Petra: Brendan is hot all the time but yeah, I agree on the ultimate sexiness of him sweating.
