Recently watched The Theory of Everything, about the life of Stephen Hawking from when he's diagnosed. What an amazing thing love and support can do - he was given two years, tops, to live. The movie is very good, especially if you're familiar with Stephen Hawking at all. I loved getting a little insight into how he thought and how his friends and family helped him to communicate long after he lost the ability to speak.
Watched the first three movies in the Steve Rogers arc - Captain America, the Avengers and The Winter Soldier. I liked Captain America better this time around than I had the original time I saw it. Which puts Iron Man movies as the only ones of the Avengers series that I really don't care for. I'm glad they 'redeemed' Tony Stark in the third Iron Man movie, but I really don't care that much for the character and have no desire to see the movies againMy favorites in this franchise remain the Thor movies, along with the two Avengers movies.
I have to admit that I am looking forward to both Deadpool and the Suicide Squad. I am not familiar with the comics/lore for either of them and that's the way I like it.
Something called Blue Seduction was on TV the other day and the blurb sounded interesting, so I DVR'd it. I gave it a half hour and it was lucky it got that long -- big old do not recommend on that one.
Watched The Man From Uncle which was great fun. Almost like the original bond movies, with that tongue in cheek by play between the male leads to go along with the spy plot and action sequences. I had never seen the original series, so I had no real expectations going in.
Then I watched The Martian. I loved this movie. And while, no, I wouldn't classify it as a comedy oh Golden Globe people, it was funny and it was funny throughout. The book it was based on is now on my reading list. A book which started its life as a free download on the author's webpage before being picked up by a publisher. How cool is that? I hope he got a kazillion dollars for the movie rights.
Movies coming to the theater in the next few months that I am looking forward to, although most will no doubt be watched via BluRay on my TV than on the big screen:
Gods of Egypt
10 Cloverfield Lane
Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice (I'm not sure I want to see this one, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to want to see the Justice League ones that follow, so I'll have to give this one a look)
The Huntsman: Winter's War
Captain America: Civil War
Alice: Through the Looking Glass
We'll see how many I manage to actually get to in the theater. I'll bet there's some goodies coming out over the summer as well, but I'll anticipate those closer to the time.
