Last night I watched “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest” on Netflix. I am disappointed that it didn’t come to the theatre in Rochester, making it the only one I didn’t get to see on the big screen. I went to Dana’s house to watch it on his big screen, since I usually watch instantly viewed netflix on my computer – a small screen. The movie was 2.5 hours, but it really flew by. Of course, it was the same general story as the book, with the omission of TONS, but I think it did a good job of telling the complicated story that the books are made of. It is still baffling to me how much I liked these books and movies, as violence and intrigue aren’t my usual fare, either in books or movies. The books made my list of “important things in my life in 2010,” so that’s saying something.
Today I watched “The Wrestler,” or maybe I should say I finished watching it. I had it on Netflix a while ago and the DVD was scratched or something and I couldn’t finish watching it, so I recorded it and watched the second hour. Now I can say that’s done. 🙂
My current Netflix DVD is “I Am Love,” which I know very little about. It might be foreign and it might not be. It isn’t up for any Oscars but it was up for some Golden Globes, I believe. I’ll let you know what I think!
What about you? Have you seen anything good lately?
