We tend to tune in for movies and television on a mostly regular basis. I posted a general look at what I have been watching a couple weeks ago, but I thought I would talk a bit about what I have seen since.
NCIS - We are up to the fourth season on our rewatch. One of these days we will make it to the newest season that I received for my birthday. We didn't watch it on television religiously, so I am rather curious what happened! We can only watch so fast, though, and other things have been vying for attention.
House - I received the newest season on DVD for my birthday. I still haven't sat down and started watching it. I have had other things going on. The guy will watch it, but it is more my show than his. He isn't big on needles. My thing is anything to do with eyes... This also means I haven't watched any of the season airing on television. I have been hearing it is gone in a strange direction, though.
Bones - I decided to go back to the beginning and watch all the episodes of this show. I have made it through one. Very sad! I really like this show, but I just never remember to watch it unless I happen to catch it on television...
New Fall Shows
New Girl - I haven't watched this show since episode 3... I have episode 4 to watch, so maybe tonight we will at least watch that one. I am not even sure how far behind that makes us. I have to admit I REALLY liked the first episode, but then there was a cast change and I was a bit disappointed...
The Secret Circle - I have also fallen behind with this show. Did I mention I am really bad at keeping up with things? I have all of them to watch, but I just haven't got around to it. We might have to pause on NCIS and catch-up on a few things!
I have also fallen behind on Pan-Am and A Gifted Man. I really suck at keeping up with things!
Once Upon a Time - I LOVED this show. The first two episodes were awesome! I love fairy tale retellings and this has been a lot of fun so far. I think the guy even likes it. He doesn't really say because he is basically forced to watch it! I cannot wait for more!
Grimm - There has only been one episode of this so far. It is another fairy tale-type show. I am intrigued, but I can't say I loved the first episode. I look forward to the next one to see what I think of it. I think I will keep watching no matter what.
The Three Lord of the Rings Movies - I watched these and then decided to join in for the read-along of The Fellowship of the Ring. I am thinking I will have to rewatch the movies after finishing Return of the King in November. This is only the second time I have seen the extended versions of the movies. I have to admit it had been so long since I had seen the older versions that I probably missed a lot of the changes. It was still great to watch them. It was the first time that the cc had seen the extended versions. It gives me a good basis to compare and contrast the books as I reread them.
Jane Eyre - I finally read this book, so it was perfect timing for seeing the new movie. It was actually pretty good. It wasn't amazing and probably not my favourite movie ever, but I thought it was true to the book enough to be worth a watch. There were a few scenes that were cut out I would have liked seeing, but nothing major. It was a perfect Gothic movie for this time of the year, actually. I am glad I finally read the book and watched the movie.
Rebecca - When I read this book last year I knew I was going to have to watch the movie. It is the Alfred Hitchcock version and you can actually watch the entire thing on YouTube. I was very happy to have the chance to watch this! It was really good, I must admit. I think it perfectly captured the atmosphere and the mood of the classic novel. I am going to see about tracking down a copy to own.
Seven Year Itch - The guy wanted to watch this movie because of the classic Marilyn Munroe scene where her dress flies up. Overall, nothing amazing, but not a terrible movie. It is about time I got back to watching classic movies after doing rather well with it earlier this year. I have many more that I want to watch!
Volcano - I had actually seen this before, but the guy was home sick from work and he was having a movie night. I didn't see everything he watched, but I did watch this one. It is pretty good Tommy Lee Jones movie. It was nice to see the little girl from Now & Then. I loved that movie!
Bad Teacher - We actually watched this last night. It had its good parts, but overall I think most of the good scenes were in the trailer. My favourite Cameron Diaz movie remains The Holiday. That was actually on television the other night and it was nice to get a chance to see parts of it again. I will have to get my own copy at some point.
