Someone asked me a while back why don't I go and see grown up movies. In response I asked him "Name the last grown-up movie you saw?" He couldn't answer. Movies are my bread and butter, I love them, hate them, agonise over them and rant about them over and over again. But most of them are those rantings about the big flicks every one has seen. And for some reason thats viewed as bad... Can't a grown up enjoy the event movies like Superman Returns and Casino Royale?
There are sum flicks that I just hope I didn't get hit the face by a bus before I see it. Is that wrong? I'm 23 and love movies to death. I'll even go and sit in a flick on my own in the dead of night if no-ones up for it. The fact that I don't scour the cinema watching an obscure independent film isn't a bad thing. I'd love to do it. I just can't afford to give up time and money to do it. So I go and see a movie on word of mouth, writer, star, director, or most importantly on premise. "Stranger than Fiction" is one of those films that I really want to see, before I even heard Marc Forster was directing it or Will Ferrell was in it. I just read the premise and thought it sounded great. I don't care what genre they are from arthouse to comic book flick I just love a good flick in any shape way or form. Anyways these so far are my fav flicks of 2006 so far.
1. Superman Returns
2. Casino Royale
3. Miami Vice
4. The Departed
5. V for Vendetta
