After the MST3K, I was kinda in the mood for Japanese monster movies, so I watched Rodan. It was not very good, even for 1960s Japanese monster movies. Two giant prehistoric pterodactyls attack Japan...and when the military options don't work, they just kinda kill themselves in a lava flow.

...meh...

Followed that up with a couple of Buster Keaton movies. I haven't seen a lot of silent films, just bits and pieces of 'em in other stuff. SJ was okay, but not great. And TG was kinda messed up in that Keaton somehow wins the Civil War for the South...?

And then a Brittney Spears concert video that showed me just how out of touch I am...the thing is about an hour & fifteen minutes long, and I didn't hear a song I knew 'til almost an hour into it. And it was filmed in 2011.

Went out to Lufkin yesterday for two matinees.

First up, AH, which wasn't as good as I had hoped for considerin' the cast. It needed more Jennifer Lawrence - she stool the show every time she showed up onscreen. Batman with a potbelly & a combover was amusin', too, but ya can see that in the trailer.

Followed that with The Hobbit sequel in 2D. I liked it a bit more than the first one, though the bit with the barrels distracted me for the whole rest of the movie...when the dwarves are makin' a break for it, each one of 'em has a barrel. All the barrels are filled with one dwarf. Bilbo follows, inadvertantly, but without a barrel. Durin' the escape/chase sequence, one of the dwarves destroys his barrel. And yet, Bilbo winds up with his own barrel, and the tubby ginger dwarf gets to keep a barrel, too. So...where did the two extra barrels come from?

Smaug was a pretty good lookin' dragon effect, too.

Got back to the house, and watched National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation with my sister & younger nephew. First time for both of them to see it, but its one of my holiday favorites. My dad & I saw it in theaters way back in '89...

Followed that with An Ideal Husband, a period melodrama about relationships in London. It was actually kinda dull, but it had a good cast.

And then the 500th "new to me" movie of the year, WtBR starrin' Bill Murray as Hunter S Thompson. I liked it quite a bit more than Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

Watchin' a first season episode of Dexter now, before I call it a night.
