What To Watch

Recommended Posts

Guest Cowboy

Ok, so being the movie buff i am, i am really sad to say, i havent been to the theater to see a film, since "I Am Legend". :(

Last couple of years i have been movng back and forth and really havent had the time to go see any new filcks, so ive been buying them on DVD when they release, which can always lead to disaster.

Anyway, im strongly considering hittin the theater this weekend to see a movie. Lots of good ones are out, but im not sure what i want to see. I have a wide range of genres so feel free to suggest anything.

I am legend is a awesome film starring Will Smith about a virus that turns people into rabid zombie like monsters. Though I don't know whats playing if I may be so bold, allow me to offer up Grandma's Boy as a possible rental. If you haven't seen it before you should. :)

lol thanks for that Evan. I dont feel half as bad now.

I havent heard that much about Jonah Hex. I did google it just now and it seems like something i could get into.

Toy Stury 3 Has been on my list of must see's since i saw the previews.

(Not like ive waited 11 years for it to come out or anything. :rolleyes: )

But watching Grandma's boy dont sound bad either. Thats a movie ive seen 20 hundred times and still laugh when i watch it.

*sigh* decisions, decisions, Someone make my mind up. LOL.

I'm in the same position, haven't been to the cinema since term started. :(

As for some decent films you might have missed but are worth getting on DVD (like I did) if you want to take a chance on my film taste :P ... Sherlock Holmes (lots of hilarity), Avatar (lots of blue people), The Surrogates (lots of robot-avatars), Star Trek (lots of space), Fast and Furious (lots of cars), Angels & Demons (lots of antimatter)& G.I.Joe (lots of technology).

I forgot that you'd get films coming out at different times to here. *headdesk* Knight and Day has the potential to be good, and is apparently in a similar vein to Mr & Mrs Smith (worth a watch if you haven't seen it 'cause you can probably pick it up cheap by now). I'm hoping that the Karate Kid reboot is up to scratch but I'm think it's a 50/50 chance.

Hehe... I don't remember the last time I've been in a cinema, but I love movies. :D The mainstream film industry just doesn't offer good stuff nowadays.

I would have probably suggested Toy Story 3 in 3D, or maybe Karate Kid, but, obviously, I found this thread too late.

What movie did you watch, by the way?

lol I have a long list of movies I wanna see. I am a pirate like Belle :P so I am waiting until I am somewhere with a faster internet connection (aka college) so that downloading movies doesn't suck up all my bandwidth.

Yeah I'm now at home for the summer and realising I can't be as heavy on the usage every time I think to watch something. *grumbles* I miss uni! (Just not the work, a few weeks off from that is fine. :P)

I went and saw Toy Story 3 in 3D.

Was a really good movie and a great way to end a story.

I do have to say, i get that "there will be more to come in another 11 years" feeling.

Fast and Furious (lots of cars)

Yes! Get this! Awesome film. :P

Also on DVD:

The Hangover.

In the cinemas (it may have already been and gone where you are. So it might be being released on DVD there i dunno) Salt! Salt is a great action movie. Lots of action, okay so some bits are a bit far fetched like James bond like when she jumps onto vans and things (you'll see what i mean if you see it) but that was still awesome to me. Angelina Jolie is great, not to mention sexy. ;) The way she handles herself Oooffft! *calms self down* Honestly it's an awesome film! so yea that is another one. Salt.

Another on DVD

Blood diamond. Again it's another action movie, much more slower paced than Salt though but still good. Also a film that can make grown men at the least well up and at the most shed one or two tears. Blood diamond

The last king of Scotland. It's based around the same kinda theme/place as Blood diamond. It's quite...slow moving (at least for me. I guess I like fast paced things even though I'm actually very slow myself. ;) ) it's slow moving but again also an awesome movie. Forest Whitaker is excellent in his role, and can play an evil, insane man very very well.The last king of scotland Also this film is based on a true story

Twisted: Twisted is another good film. It's a thriller about a high case serial killer. There are lots of twists and turns throughout the film. Twisted

Shutter Island: Awesome film. Some scenes in some parts though are so clearly fake it's unbelievable. (meaning the scenery behind them looks fake) which is a bit of a disappointment, but it still doesn't stop the fact that it's awesome, and great acting. Another one with twists and turns. The ending is unexpected. Or at least it was to me, and that is part of what made it so great and memorable. It's out on DVD here in the UK not sure how long it will have been out there. You may be wanna wait a while till it's cheaper. That is what I tend to do. I watched this at the cinema though. Shutter Island

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford: another great film, also it's a western themed film. ;)The assassination of Jesse James

Broken Trail: another western themed film. Well actually it's 2 episodes. But still each lasts about an hour so it's about 2 hours if you watch it all together. Broken Trail

Oh and 1 or 2 more...

Or maybe 3..... We'll see... :P haha

Scent of a woman. Great film. Old film but still great.

Mystic River. That is another great film. It's a murder mystery. It's directed by the famous Clint eastwood. ;):P

and also just one more for tonight:

Basic instinct. An old film. But it's fantastic. One of my all times faves. Some intense scenes in it too. It's awesome!

YES!

That was a "Must See" for me! Forrest Whitaker was totally believable as dictator Idi Amen, also known as the 'Butcher of Uganda' .,..

I was in Africa in 1971 when he became dictator and we watched with great interest the killing and genocide he perpetrated...

..

Not only is Whitaker believable, but he studied the tapes of the late dictator and had his walk, voice and swagger down!

Amazing movie!

      A friend at work today sent me a message he wanted to talk to me.  I was leery, because he can talk on and on, and lecture if he thinks someone's done something incorrectly.  Sigh.  I asked him what he wanted to talk to me about and he replied, "Nothing. Just something personal."  Okay.  Well, that's sounds better than, "You should have done..."  So, after my shift was over I went by to see him.   He said, "I have to thank you." "What for?" I asked. "Because, of  you I went and got help for something that's been a problem for a while and I was too embarrassed to get help." Of course, at this point my mind is going.  Is he gay?  Is he trans too?  He is a bit effeminate.  "What's happened?" I asked. He tells me he's been feeling really run down, and sleeps away his weekends for some time.  He went to the doctor, and they diagnosed him with low-T.  He's on hormones now, and may end up on estrogen blockers as well.   That's exactly why I have been open about my transition with folks.  I believed if I was living a lie, by coming out others might find the courage to stop living lies as well.  I am very happy about this.  I am glad he is getting help.

      I ponder what I would really do if it all was just handed to me tomorrow.  Would I jump in both feet or not.  It’s easy to say you want this or that and different when you can actually get it.  I know this well enough.   I’m not in a hurry to have more surgery.  SRS is not on my scope but seems like a possible step.   Like you I’m more interested in an orchy and shed my T.   But I’m still healing from my last tangle with a scalpel.    Before I go on with that I want to understand my feelings and place in all this.  I’m hoping the therapist can show/teach/explain what’s what and why.

      Back in the early 1990's I was fortunate being in a VA related counseling program for PTSD issues. My counselor was in a long term lesbian relationship, so when I broached the subject of what I intended to accomplish as a trans person, she had no qualms about writing me all the necessary letters. Prior to that I had been seeing Dr. Anne Lawrence, I know some people detest her, but she saw fit to put me on feminizing HRT and she also wrote me a letter of recommendation for SRS. Later it turned out that the endocrine specialist at the local VA hospital knew Anne, and he bought into my plan to transition and set me up for free meds. He also wrote me a letter recommending an orchiectomy and or SRS as I had complained about having to take Spironolactone as a testosterone blocker. So when I hooked up with Dr. Bowers I had both feet in the door but in the finale analysis decided that it wasn't the ultimate panacea for me. The reason I blathered all this past history out is that I felt at the time that if anything that you desire to accomplish is really valid and that important to you, then you will be manipulative and as devious as necessary to achieve what you need to. I am a bit embarrassed by putting all this out there, because in the end I dropped the ball entirely and in retrospect I have to concede that we should take our time going through the process step by step and not try to circumvent the system. It is what it is for our own good.

      I am hoping to feel “the weight” lifted.   It is nice to know there are those here that understand.

      I wish you all the best with your conversations and your marriage.  The first time I came out to my first wife it was easy and she was totally supportive.  We shopped together and she taught me make up. It was wonderful. Then we got divorced a year later and my world crumbed.   She eventually couldn’t do it any longer even though I was not truly out still being in the military.  Still a guy in public and at work or every where outside our home.   ot was crushing.  Having to go deep in hiding again. I almost took my life.  My fear of this happening again is crippling.   I hope to work through my fear and one day tell my wife now.   Good luck this weekend ❤️

      Thank you for your kind support Jani. More and more, I'm reaching the point that I realize I can't go back to my old life no matter what I do. Strangely, this is a source of courage. I have to move forward now and I feel a strange sort of calm knowing that my transition is beginning no matter what I try to do to stop it. It seems I am not letting my fear stop me from living anymore.

      I don't know much about Italian protocols in therapy but hopefully you can search online for therapists.  Might there be a society that they belong too (such as the APA) to search for members and qualifications?   I googled "therapists in Italy" and found this.  https://internationaltherapistdirectory.com/listings/italy-1/   Jani

      I love cars and all things automotive. I used to race a dedicated car; high strung race engine, full safety cage, trailered, etc.  While I no longer race since I don't have the stamina I do still have a small fleet of vehicles that I love.  I have a well equipped shop to play in.  I also love to cook and sew, always have.  While I once fretted over my "male-centric" hobbies I've found it to be a non issue.     Enjoy what you do.   Jani

      I was terribly nervous going in and walking on air on the way out as I had finally unburdened my soul to someone. This will hopefully be a good thing for your too.    Jani

      This was me too so you're not alone.  I found it difficult to explain to my wife something I couldn't explain to myself.  Counseling helped me a lot.     All my best.  Jani

      Being willing to sit down and talk through all of the issues she has is critical.

      Best of luck Sara! My conversation was a little different from what you're going to have, but Susan and I are closer now than we've ever been before. Over the weekend she was telling an old friend how much more pleasant I've been to have around the house since I've started transitioning. Note here is that I'm OUT out. I present as female all the time, I'll happily answer questions to the best of my ability and I'm not ashamed of being transgender. I'd rather I wasn't mind you, but I think part of being trans is making the most out of a difficult situation.   Your wife sounds like a wonderful and caring individual. You're still the person she fell in love with, you're just sharing a little more of yourself. I think it's telling that you came out to her and she stuck around. I think you'll be OK.   Hugs!

      @Nivegnal  My wife is still upset I hid it from her. What she can’t grasp is that I wasn’t ready to tell her as I had almost no answers at the time and was really feeling shame. We have had only very brief conversations since as we have had people staying with us almost non stop since the initial conversation.    I honestly don’t know that I would I have really done a whole lot different if I could have a do over. It was one of the most stressful things I have ever done in my life. It took everything I had to bring it into the light. I am still stressed about it both the situation with my wife and the fact I am not out to anyone else other than my therapist, my GP and my endo.    I am going to have a much more in-depth series of conversations with my wife this weekend, as we are finally going to have some alone time. We will see how it goes.    I wish you the best of luck in coming out to your spouse. Everyone is different and will handle the news in their own way. You may end up with a super supportive partner.    *hugs*   Sara
