I actually like the sort of campier 60s style of Bond and its tropes, and don't like the brooding, serious tone as much, so I thought SPECTRE was a nice change of pace. That said, it was weird having Daniel Craig in that kind of Bond movie, since he was so established as the "rugged, serious" Bond, and it felt like, after three movies of doing it one way, they just wanted to have the best of both worlds, and it didn't quite mesh. But I'd agree, if only because I don't think Skyfall is as good a movie as everyone thinks it is.

Literally all my friends loved Skyfall and it kind of annoys me. It really annoys me that Bond sneaks up behind a girl in the shower to have sex right after she tells him how she got raped. Like really? Also I like how SPECTRE gives meaning to the previous villains, so we finally know how Silva's plan was so meticulous.

I'm just SO happy that

I watched Brüno the other day. And I quite liked it.
It can get quite yucky at times, but I believe that the point of the movie, considering the way it was recorded, is to show real people and how they react to certain things. And that, if anything, is what makes this movie truly yucky and disgusting. Which is also what, for me, made it really good.

I saw The Hunger Games as well. I thought it was really good, although some of the parts were frustrating too b/c they were a little different than the book.

I've been watching so many movies I haven't seen until now.

I never saw Kevin Smith films but I saw Clerks and Chasing Amy for the first time, both of which were fantastic. I love Clerks a lot more though.

Latest movie I watched has to be Passengers. Though I have been catching up on some amazing movies that I hadn't watched before like The Green Mile, The Imitation Game, Southpaw, Nocturnal Animals, Kill Bill (Vol.1 / Vol.2), etc.

I've been on a movie binge since getting my calligraphy business underway, so here's a list:

- Finally got around to watching Selma & had a full-on meltdown watching it. It's so moving! I bawled like a baby.
- Fantastic Beasts & Where to Find Them. Ah, I wish I were magical...
- Beasts of No Nation. Holy carp. O.O By the end of the movie, I felt like a punching bag after a bad day. Exhausting, but definitely well worth watching. Just don't plan to go out afterwards. You're going to need a moment to recover from that one.
- The Jungle Book (the live action one). Damn! I loved it. Kingsley, Walken, Nyong'o & Murray were amazing. Elba's Shere Khan was straight-up chilling. That scene between him and Rakshi? Goddamn.
- Finally (and it's an old one, so I have no excuse), To Catch a Thief. Cary Grant continues to leave me nonplussed.

I also have an extensive list of Netflix series I've now vaguely caught up on. Hooray!
