Wednesday (so much snow, so little inclination to do anything but watch movies and so.....)
1. Strange Days (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0114558/)
It seems weird that I haven't seen this movie before. I'm not sure how I missed it. OK, so not the most amazing piece of cinema but certainly an enjoyable way to spend a snowy morning.
2. The International (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0963178/)
Fun, fluffy thriller. Again, not the most interesting thing ever but it is amusing. Plus, there is an absolutely wonderful shoot-out in the Guggenheim. You just don't see enough of those.
3. The Arabian Nights (http://osulibrary.oregonstate.edu/video/lang2.html)
Not exactly a movie, I know. I saw this at work and couldn't resist watching it. It's a Discovery Channel presentation in which parts of Arabian Nights are re-enacted. Then various historians discuss the stories and the history behind them. Educational and kitschy all at the same time. Love it!
I'm sure real movie buffs will yell at me 'cause Lars von Trier (the director) is reasonably famous but I just couldn't get into this until almost the end. It was pretty and all but it was soooo disjointed I just didn't get it. By the end I was a little more into it and I'm willing to watch some of his other movies but I don't think I'll ever sit through this one again.
