Oh, I'm sorry. Were you expecting a Sims Screenshot? Well, I'm taking this holiday weekend to engage my reset mode, and will be taking a day off from my little game. In its stead, I'm giving you my list of films I watched during the month of August. Not exactly a fair trade, but do come back next week to play again.
8/1 - 8/4
Men in Black II (R) - Turns out Lara Flynn Boyle really wasn't the worst thing about this movie.
Space Cowboys - I bet changing Depends in space would be a nightmare.
Under Siege (R) - Gary Busey in drag...that's all I can say.
Captain America: The First Avenger (R) - I liked it a tiny bit more than I did the first time.
Thief - I need to see more James Caan films.
Total Recall - Won't be a classic like the original, but it did the trick for a matinee. Screw the haters.
RocknRolla (R) - Now that Idris Elba and Tom Hardy are more known to me, this movie was even awesomer (it's a word).
8/5 - 8/11
The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada - Watching two men ride through the desert with a decomposing corpse was no way to spend a Sunday morning.
Orlando (R) - Gender bending to the extreme!
Saved! (R) - I wish the once famous Culkin would get his shit together and do more films.
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows - How much shorter would these films be without all the slow motion shots? I'd say at least half an hour.
The Deep End (R) - Josh Lucas sports a pedo mustache...that is all.
Zombieland (R) - The only thing that could actually make me want a Twinkie.
Burn After Reading (R) - The only thing I miss about going to the gym is watching my Brad pretend to be Brad Pitt on the treadmill. And being skinny. I miss that too.
8/12 - 8/18
Beasts of the Southern Wild - Can't wait to see this one again.
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch & The Wardrobe (R) - I couldn't stop making unicorn jokes during the big battle.
Michael Clayton (R) - I don't normally dig legal dramas, but this one had me at hello.
I Am Love - Such a massive failure by Netflix in its description of the film.
Empire Records (R) - Did you know: IT'S REX MANNING DAY?!
Thumbsucker - Like Keanu could ever really be an orthodontist.
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (R) - Yep...it's still long.
Julia - A film with a kid who gets kidnapped whilst already being kidnapped. A bit too redundant.
8/19 - 8/25
The Raid: Redemption - I have now seen an Indonesian film. Yay me.
Closer (R) - Seven years later and I still hate it.
The Faculty (R) - Probably haven't watched my dvd copy since I bought it, but it was on Netflix Instant, so I had to see it. Makes no sense.
Duplicity (R) - Still decent, but could've been better without Big Lips Roberts.
Premium Rush - Summer fun just as the season ends.
8/26 - 8/31
Piranha - I know I'm 2 years late, but that was campy awesomeness.
Inside Man (R) - The second time I've watched it this year. Crazy considering I never once watched my dvd copy the five years I had it before giving it away.
Sin City (R) - The only film that doesn't make me want to punch Jessica Alba.
Greenfingers - English prisoners make gardens. Based on a true story, of course.
Croupier - Who knew a film about a casino dealer could be somewhat interesting?
Gosford Park - Started out shaky, but found its stride and turned out to be pretty fantastic.
Bent - Did you ever want to see Mick Jagger in full-on drag? Yeah, me neither.
Trust (R) - The reason I'm moving my family to an Amish community when my daughter turns 12.
Children of Men (R) - Did that actually get even better? How is that possible?
First Time - 182
Rewatched - 76
Total - 258
