So, Chicken Little? Disney movie, right? Kid's movie? Came out in 2005?

This might be a little late, but--

DON'T FUCKING WATCH IT.

Oh my god, I tried to tell my mom about the horrible, horrible stuff this movie does to and says about women, and I was literally speechless with outrage.

Just-- don't watch this movie, okay? And I certainly plan on anti-reccing this movie to anyone who has a young daughter. Or young son for that moment, because no kid needs the "lesson" this movie is trying to impart to them.

If you want to watch a good movie that deals with an intellectual boy who has a rocky relationship with his father, watch Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs instead. At least that movie is awesome, and the female characters are treated fairly. (Also, Flint and Sam are awesome.)

She has excellent taste in movies. :)

Over the last couple days, we have watched Hot Fuzz, Galaxy Quest, and Pleasantville together, and she has loved all of them. ...Especially Hot Fuzz. Can't blame her really. It was an awesome, awesome movie. *grins*

It looks so good! I mean, it has Johnny Depp, Alan Rickman, Helen Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Anthony Stewart Head! *bounces* I cannot wait for this musical to come out.

If you're interested, here are a few clips from the movie:

Not While I'm Around (Man, the kid who plays Tobias can really sing!)

A Little Priest (This song makes me laugh every time I hear it.)

You Gandered At My Ward (I would watch this movie if only to listen to Rickman's voice. ...Even when he's being creepy as hell.)

With John/Elizabeth and Rodney/Radek. :) Also, taking memorable quotes from movies on IMDb and inserting SGA characters instead is FUN.

*has given up on my computer, since it won't even let me access IMDB.com*

So, yesterday was insane and fun. As soon as I got out of class, we went out and ran around town. As in, we went to the Hong Kong buffet and stuffed ourselves with exotic Chinese, mmm.... I need to remember what the date stuff was that I loved. Yum.

Then we went and saw not one movie but two movies at the theater, lol. Chrissy and Jessi went to see The Departed and Ellie and I went to see The Prestige. Apparently The Departed was hilarious, as long you don't mind bloody, vulgar humor (which we all do *grins*).

Oh my god, The Prestige was amazing. Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman, Scarlet Johansson, and Michael Caine were all utterly brilliant.

Summary: A story of rival magicians who are determined to out-do each other. It is a tale how far (or perhaps how low) obsession can take a person.

Alfred Borden: Are you watching closely?

Yes, I was watching closely, and was utterly enthralled. It was one of those movies that makes you think, and then has this marvelous twist at the end, where you have a sudden epiphany and go, "Oh, everything makes sense now!" God, it was brilliant. I'm so going to buy that when it comes out on DVD.

...And then we watched Borat together. *snickers* Or rather Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan -- just the title should reveal what utter, glorious crack the movie was. Oh, and the summary.

Summary: Kazakhstani TV personality Borat is dispatched to the United States to report on the "greatest country in the world." With a documentary crew in tow, Borat becomes more interested in locating and marrying Pamela Anderson than on his assignment.

Borat Sagdiyev: This is Natalya.
[He kisses her passionately]
Borat Sagdiyev: She is my sister. She is number four prostitute in whole of Kazakhstan.
[She holds up a trophy and smiles]
Borat Sagdiyev: Niiice!

God, it was hilarious. Made fun of everyone and everything, and I was giggling nonstop. Some parts were Jackass-humor and made me gag a bit, but God, the rest of it, was so, so funny. I was doubled over in my seat. ...And what made it best of all was that we were in the first row, so we were up close and personal, lol.

I highly recommend both of these movies. The Prestige if you're looking for a thought-provoking, intriguing plotline and Borat if you need a laugh. *grins*

And then we wandered around Wal-Mart and I resisted my dorky urge to buy Mighty Morphing Power Rangers (Ooze, man!) and then we went back to Chrissy and Jessi's room and watched the almost, kinda, sorta, maybe sequel to The Rocky Horror Picture Show which is called Shock Treatment. It pretty much kept Janet and Brad (though not the actors) and three of the actors (but not the characters - *pats Riff Raff, Magenta, and Columbia*). It was-- interesting, though I don't remember most of it since it was 4 AM by the time I went back to my dorm, lol.

Yeah, fun day. :)

1. Pick 25 of your favorite movies.
2. Then pick one of your favorite quote/s from each movie.
3. Post the quotes in your journal.
4. Have those on your friends list to guess what the movie is.
5. Either strike out the quote once it has been correctly identified, or place the guesser's user name directly after the quote.

(Updated as of July 29th -- Only 5 left unsolved, lol)
