So I've had little to do with my boring life the last few weeks, because I've become (out of no where) incredibly nerdy and stuff with these two classes in school...LOL and only working less than full time? Well. I just have too much time on my hands.
Along with reading, I have taken to watching ALL the Jeremy Irons movies, and getting into new t.v. programs. Well, old. It seems Criminal Minds has a marathon on every other second, and I. Well, I am always doing nothing for 24 hours at a time and I partake in these. LOLOLOLWHUT.
So. Rate and recommend/be a critic to the movies and t.v. shows you've seen so others can get a taste of what they're getting into. More so t.v. programs, because. They're longer running. Unless we get all Harry Potter on everyone, but I mean. Who doesn't love Harry Potter.
Typical rules, don't add spoilers with out spoiler tags, blah blah.
Sherlock Holmes (2009).
Robert Downey Jr, Jude Law, Rachel McAdams.
DO NOT TALK TO ME ABOUT GAME OF SHADOWS...I GOT CALLED INTO WORK FRIDAY AND DIDN'T GET TO GO TO THE PREMIER. DON'T EVEN. NOT A WORK. GET OUT. GO HOME.
This is probably one of the greatest movies I have ever seen. THe acting was fanominal, the plot was amazing, and it was completely charming. I've seen it several thousand times. I recommend it to anyone who likes a good mystery-suspense with a little bit of action. And bromance. What.
Jerremy Irons, Ed Harris, Viggo Mortensen, Rene Zelwegger.
Based from a novel by which I have never read. LOL. Uhm. Anyways. I have never been a western-fan, ever. My grandmother used to watch it all the time and I used to hate it. SO dumb. But I was flipping through channels one fine day and this preview came up and I was like. YEPP. WE'RE WATCHING IT. IT HAS JEREMY IRONS. Only to find him again the bad guy, and once again getting shot and killed. LOL. But no really, I quite enjoyed it. I thought it was funny, highly entertaining, and completely as far away from a stupid western as you could get. Loved it.
Man in the Iron Mask (1998)
Jeremy Irons, Lenardo DeCaprio, John Malkovich, Gérard Depardieu.
I have seen almost all adaptations of the Three/Four Musketeers. This one was rather interesting, and quite unexpected. I hate Lenardo Dicaprio with a passion... first of all, he RUINED Romeo and Juliet, and I just. Do not like him. I think he is a terrible actor, so this movie could have done a lot better with out him. I didn't particularily like (see spoiler). I really liked (see spoiler #2). Overall, great movie. The plot is kind of dumb at first, but as the film moves on it gets better. All for one, and one for all.
Die Hard with a Vengaence (1995)
Bruce Willis, Jeremy Irons, Samual L Jackson
OH GOD. There was absolutely nothing wrong with this movie, it could possibly be one of the most perfect I have ever seen. It's got suspenseful action, completely uncut and uncensored swearing which makes it just. Great. Hahah, I found it so entertaining and just hilarious. I would quote you some really good lines, but I couldn't give you one with out the use of the F word, LOL. You just have to see it. Seriously. I find Bruce Willis very entertaining; John McClane's sarcasm is that to envy, for sure. Whoever wrote the screening for this movie was a geneous. It was this movie that aided my understanding that Jeremy Irons may possibly be the most amazing bad guy, ever.
Romeo and Juliet (1963)
Michael York, John McEnery, Leonard Whiting.
Ahhh, absolute classic. I might be one of the only ones who appreciates Shakespear OUTside of school, but I don't even care. I own this DVD, and you can all just be jelous your mom didn't buy it for you on your 16th birthday, LOL.
Anyways, so. Again, I have this you know, love for old men. Apparently. And Michael York, wow. I loved him in this movie, quite simply put. Tybalt was always one of my favorite characters in the play, one again, despite him being almost villianous all in himself. The fight scene was my favorite. Mercutio and Tybalt die, then I die a little inside. If you love Shakespeare or romance, you'll love this movie. The Lenardo Dicaprio one, SUCKED. It does the play no justice, and completely ruined it with ghetto NONSENSE. NO. MEN WEAR TIGHTS.
The Four Musketeers (1974)
Oliver Reed, Michael York, Richard Chamberlain, Frank Finlay, Raquel Welch
This adaptation is one of my favorites. I actually haven't seen it in awhile, and the thought of it puts me into a state of nostalgia. The acting was great, it was great. Ah, unfortunately I don't have much more to go on, I haven't seen this in yeaaarss. Probably going to have to go to the ol' library and see if they still have the copy. THis may be one of the only world's greatest movies I don't actually own. DAYUM.
Anyways, if you're a fan of the musketeers, just watch it. It's really awesome.
Jeremy Irons, Ed Speleers, John Malkovich, Gerette Hedlund.
Yepp. This has to be the world's greatest movie. I don't care what anyone says. Ever. Anywhere. Go home. Before I go into a 50 hour speal about how much I love everything there is to love ever about this movie, I'll say this.
Just watch it, damnit.
Criminal Minds (2005 - present)
Thomas Gibson, Matthew Gray Gubler, Shemar Moore, Joe Mantegna.
Greatest crime drama series, EVER. Every single one of the characters, I love to pieces. They're all so wonderful. One doesn't dominate the rest, and they don't wear their sunglasses at night, and. Other things. The cast has changed a bit; before with Gideon and then Elle and I think the newer episodes have some new chick? Haven't really seen any new episodes, I always seem to miss them and then they never come on again. I really like Rossie and Hotch, I think they're definitely my favorites. But like I said, I just like it so much because all the characters have equal proportions on the show and it's not just one or two, there's like 6... So.
Plus the episodes and the crimes are so in depth and believable. Seriously. It's just an awesome show.
I will say, it has some competition with Law and Order SVU, just because I think that Christopher Meloni is so great.
