We have spent all Saturday cleaning off bookcases, moving furniture, cleaning underneath beds and rearranging kitchen cabinets. We said we were doing this getting ready for Holy, but then we noticed our next door neighbors doing a bit of “spring cleaning” out under their patio as well. I guess this is a good time of the year to do some of this with the holidays just around the corner and all. It was quite a lot of work needless to say.
So after all our hard work, we decided to treat ourselves to a fun time on Sunday. We took Katie and her boyfriend, Cameron to Statesboro to see The Dark Knight. It was worth waiting 20 minutes in line to get tickets. I came prepared with my diet popcorn as I knew it was a 3 hour event. It was one of the most awesome action movies I’ve ever seen. We saw Hellboy II last Wednesday. It’s hard to say which was better and then to try and compare those two movies with Ironman. It has been an action packed summer as far as movies go. I think Hellboy had the best effects. It was visually stunning. Batman/The Dark Knight had the better plot of the three. It had lots of twists and turns in the storyline. Ironman had the best acting of all of them.
I have always said that Robert Downey Jr. is one of the best actors of the past generation. I have been saying this for years. Even when he was strung out, it never came across in the films. He has always been believable in every role he’s taken. If I ever write something that is made into a movie, he has to be in it.
Of course Chistopher Walken and Willem DaFoe would also have to be in it as villans and Willem Dafoe would have to wear the same outfit he wore as Raven in the greatest movie of all time, Streets Of Fire. It has the most romantic passionate kissing scenes ever filmed. Diane Lane and Michael Pare’ are great together on screen.
I’ll compile the complete list for you another time. I have the cast all figured out I just haven’t written the script and/or screenplay yet. Mickey Rourke will have to be in it too.
Oh and I almost forgot to include this.
It is the best song ever written. Of course it’s from Streets OF Fire. Dan Hartman performed it on record, but the band playing The Sorrels lip-synched it in the movie. It is my favorite song of all time. Enjoy !!
