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!

      If you have insurance, they might have options, and or your doctor, to get a referral for some type of Nutritionist that could help you. Possibly a councilor  could recommend group meetings, perhaps even a trans group that you could join. I know it helps to have a support system in line. Substitute fast food with veggies and fruit. Drink water with all of your meals, good or fast food, drink water. That helps me filling up and it's just plain healthy. Try and eat salad with your meals too, they can be rather tasty. Dont go cold turkey, ease into it, find a comfortable balance. Walk when you can, and ease into that too. Start bringing small weights with your walls after a while. Maybe find people that are willing to walk with you.  During my research of HRT and what would help me see changes, boobie growth, losing weight was one of them. That inspired me, cause I noticed the changes after i lost weight and maintained keeping weight off. The weight distribution has really been shoing this past week.  Other than eating healthy foods, going to a therapist might help you with what is driving you to eat when you are not hungry.  I wish you the best!

      I do not miss anything (yet), and I dont believe i will. I am doing what I have always wanted to do, so everything that comes with it will be gravy. I get looks, and I enjoy them. I havent been flirted with yet, at least not as far as I know. That might come later when I present more.

      Thank you. 💛💛

      I have yet to find anything I really miss other than the looks from cute girls. Girls are definitely not checking me out anymore. Well maybe except a lesbian but I haven’t noticed that either.  And what’s worse is that that’s been replaced with guys checking me out and flirting. It’s really really weird still for me. Like really weird. lol.

      Great topic, Dawn.  I miss both of the things listed above.  I really miss being able to carry heavy things like I once could.  My upper body strength has dwindled.  When moving things like couches, sheets of plywood, etc...I never realized how much of the lifting required me to use my chest to help balance these bulky items.  I can't have ANYTHING touch me anywhere near my chest.  It nearly sends me into orbit when I inadvertently hit my nipples.
    • Kirsten
      It’s hard, but you need to start cutting out the bad foods. Foods high in fat and sugars make you crave more food. It’s why you can sit down and eat an avocado and feel more full and more sustained than when you eat 3x as much of something like Doritos or McDs fries. Your body is being fooled.  Eat as much healthy foods as you can. Nearly 50% of your food every day should be veggies. For someone your size I’d say you should be in the 6-8cups of veggies a day.  My advice, cut out bad and replace with good. Go as fast or slow as you can handle, but create goals no matter how small they may be and stick to them. Eventually you’ll get where you want to. But it’s gonna mean work. And I also recommend a support group. It really helps. A lot. If you stay active with it at least.    Good luck.

      I really don’t think this is the whole story. There’s just too much that doesn’t add up. He’s not talking or giving a motive for the shooting. Usually killers give a motive once they are caught. She worked retail and didn’t live the lifestyle even though she had a place on a seedy street. She leaned in the passenger side window which implies a passenger. The pace of the interaction was implied as being quick, so that tells me she was killed for being a witness. People don’t usually drive up to a random woman and have a short conversation with her and inexplicably shoot her with a shotgun. Unless it’s a hit.    There’s also a sub culture in the region they don’t mention. It’s common place for people who don’t have cars to flag others down and seek rides, called hacking, basically Uber before there was Uber and definitely cheaper. That’s something the suspect would be interested in if they just had a car accident, a rental van, and needed money. It’s entirely plausible. So was the passenger actually the killer? Was it one of those bait and switch situations where the passenger just killed her and the driver was surprised it happened? He definitely wouldn’t argue with an armed man. Did they threaten the driver and/or promise them protection if they didn’t talk? Was part of the deal to take the shotgun and take the fall if the police came after the driver? I think this was a hit, to take out a witness. Which means that the first killing was probably by the same person and the rabbit hole goes way deeper into the criminal underworld.

      @Carolyn Marie thank you for sharing this true story.  So much of it describes the way I felt during puberty and at other times during my life.  it was just over a year ago that I finally figured it out and started therapy and sought help.  That's a long time to be depressed and not know why.   Willow

      So last weekend I went camping(tents, drinking, bonfire, no restrooms) I was in boy mode as I am not out yet. When natured called as is the case with mass quantities of cheap beer is involved, I found a tree, pulled it out, shook it off after, put it away and went back to fun. It got me thinking if or when I transition to a girl, it will require a little more privacy and toilet paper.(I have camped with girls) I have what I have between my legs, but male parts are so much more convenient in that regard.    It got my thinking what little thing will you miss or do you miss after transitioning? (Let's keep this on the light side, we are all aware of how society can treat us, just little things)   Dawn

      In an effort to make Berkeley more inclusive for its non-binary residents, the city council voted Tuesday night to make the language more gender neutral, following a city clerk review that found that the municipal code primarily contained masculine pronouns.   https://www.washingtonpost.com/dc-md-va/2019/07/18/berkeley-plans-remove-gendered-pronouns-its-municipal-code/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.8248f991c2e8
