Everything I learned, I learned from the movies

Saw American Hustle finally. Enjoyed it for the most part, but I did sleep through some of it (must be my old age). Still want to know what happens at the end of the Ice fishing story. Might have missed it.

Also, Amy Adams, goddamn.

Also saw an animu, Wolf Children. It was really ****ING good. Very touching story. I had some reservations cause the first ten or so minutes were kind of Twilight-y teen romance bull crap, but it has this beautiful montage in the beginning that totally sucked me in and convinced me of the relationship. Watched the dub, which I thought was very good.

Watched a movie called Martha Marcy May Marlene. It starred Elizabeth Olsen, the Olsen sister I never knew about. It's pretty good, it's about this girl running away from a cult and back to her sister and brother-in-laws place and her trying to readjust to society after experiencing some extreme physical and emotional trauma. It's a pretty eerie film since she's constantly paranoid that they'll come back for her and are watching her.

Nah, he never finished the Ice Fishing story in the movie. But Louis C.K talked about it on The Tonight Show and said what the ending was

That's so dumb that they cut the story. Why make such a big deal about and give it multiple scenes and not finish it.

Watched the Inbetweeners movie. That was a great way to close off the show.

Saw it yesterday, most definitely. I'm surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Everything is awesome!

Saw the Muppet 2011 and Rio recently. Well they were just in the background.

Anyway nice cameos in Muppets And some catchy tunes. Really found it funny that human Walter would be Jim Parsons.

Rio was pretty solid too, though I really hate Leslie Manns voice acting. Jessie Eisenberg just sort of plays his typecast neurotic role but just as a bird. But I enjoyed it. The whole movie felt very much like Toy Story, except what if Woody was a girl and was a couple with Buzz...ugh now I can't unthink it.

2011 Muppets was amazing. Totally won an Oscar for Man or Muppet.

Watched Robocop. Interesting first third. The other parts...eh. I don't have much reverence for the original Robocop, but I did think that the beginning of this movie was interesting in so far as it felt like the making of Robocop 2014. Like how to make an old 80s property more palatable to a modern audience, cue jet black stealth suit. It's too bad the rest of the movie was kind of uninteresting.

Movie just really made me feel like playing Deus Ex: Human Revolution again.
