Watched 2010

Watched 2010: Once again, my summary of Films I watched during 2010.

An Education, The last film of 2010, which is funny because I think it was the last film I saw in 2009... Yes, yes it was. I wonder if I could make that a thing?

Ghost Town, I watched another film I had seen in 2009. I'm just watching films that my Mum hasn't seen. I really enjoy watching films she hasn't seen with her.

Inception, another "you've got to watch this" from Blockbuster, which yes, is still around here.

Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, I bought this for Darryl for Christmas. Do I need to say it again? No, but I will: Bread makes you fat!?

Kick Ass, Hmm, no, I bought this for Darryl for Christmas. I know that I enjoyed seeing it again, at least.

Love Actually, I watched this alone in my room a few days after Christmas.

500 Days of Summer, I watched this with my Dad while hanging out at his house because he absolutely loves it. It's probably one of his all-time favourite movies, which I find a little weird. He is head-over-heels in love with Zooey Deschanel.

Prince of Persia, Dad purchased this off cable one day when we were hanging out and we didn't feel like being inside. I was shocked at the quality of some of the effects since it was Disney and the amazing Jerry Bruckheimer.

Tomorrow When The War Began, I watched this film just before we descended into Australia (is that correct?) and it was really awesome. I was surprised how good it was since it is an Aussie film, and I know it's not good to say this. but so many Aussie films don't do good teen movies or don't even try to make them. So it was really refreshing and great to see Lincoln Lewis (extra buddy) and Rachel Hurd-Wood from Peter Pan and Caitlin Stasey from Sleepover Club do their thing. LOOK HOW MANY FILMS I CAN GET DOWN WHILE ON A PLANE. OH YEAH. 

Wild Target, I watched this film on the plane, too! I thought the possibility of a romance between Emily Blunt and Bill Nighy a little unrealistic, but, hey, stranger things have happened. Rupert Grint was sweet as well.

Eat Pray Love, I finally decided to watch this while on the plane, despite all the bad reviews. It wasn't my favourite film. It wasn't my favourite book either. Some moments were sweet, a lot of it felt really impossible and forced. I think Billy Crudup added some truth about the writer to the film, which made it more interesting.

The Special Relationship, I loved that the same team from The Queen was back for this film. I did not find it as interesting as I found The Queen. I did like how they tackled the Lewinsky issue within their marriage. I also thought that there could have been someone more suitable for Clinton than Dennis Quaid.

Predators, I didn't want to watch this, but I have this thing where I force myself to watch the last movie from the first or last section and this was it. I liked that Topher Grace was in it. I was so bored with it (just not in to these kinds of films) that I let it play while I spent a long time in the plane bathroom brushing my teeth and washing my face, just really trying to make time past faster. I felt so guilty about not watching it properly when I returned to my seat that I rewound it back to where I left it and watched all that I had missed on fast forward... so it was sort of pointless.

The Disappearance of Alice Creed, I love QANTAS. I really do. If I could afford to, I'd always fly with them. I suppose other airlines are doing this these days, but I love that they let us access the Entertainment System while on the ground without even making a big deal about it. We were on the tarmac for 40 minutes, but it was totally fine because drinks were served and we could watch whatever we wanted, they didn't even interrupt the service during take-off, which just shows you how powerful these planes are that they can still have hundreds of little TVs playing all kinds of things while it's trying to get up in the air. I'm in awe of the what they can do with these machines. People take them for granted, but I'll always appreciate them wholeheartedly. This movie was very interesting. I really love the actor, Eddie Marsan. I think he is amazing. So brave and vulnerable. I hope I watch all his work one day.

The Beach, last film I watched in America. I find it hard to not want to watch this film when someone hasn't seen it and I'm about to go traveling.

Every Little Step, I watched this on the Brooklyn XBOX Netflix one day. It was very interesting. I hope that I can do this myself one day. It's a terrifying process, but I'll always feel silly if I never try.

Going The Distance, I watched this film while on a plane. Where was I going? Was I on a plane? I'm sure I was. Maybe I was going to LA for some reason?
