Today I saw two movies: The Hunger Games and Iron Sky. But first my experience in watching two movies on the same day in the same cinema in the same salon in the same seat.
I would not recommend watching two movies (at the cinema) in one day, mainly because you need some time to breathe in between experiences (I’ll elaborate further down). Also, the food you’ll eat consists mostly of snacks, which is so good for most people’s digestive systems.
First movie, The Hunger Games. I honestly saw this just so I could get most of the references which sometimes show up on my tumblr dashboard. Also because I have heard so much praise about it.
The movie is very much worth the praise it gets. I want to read the books now, I should read the books now. The ending, which tied things together well but left a teensy bit for a sequel, left me in a sort of melancholic I-want-to-know-what-happens-next-right-now-or-I’ll-die-on-the-floor mood. Which affected my viewing of the other film I saw.
Iron Sky, supposedly mostly funded by fan donations. I went in expecting so bad it’s good b-movie, but it turned out kind of blah. It was more bad than funny-bad, and sometimes (especially the ending) it seemed to take itself very seriously. Which you probably shouldn’t, since it’s a movie about space-nazis. The entire movie clashed in tone a lot, it seems it couldn’t decide on what type of movie it should be. I normally don’t laugh at the cinema, most of the audience laughed quite a lot, but I could only find like three times where I could chuckle a bit. Or even imagine I would laugh if I was at home looking at this. I expected more, which gave me sort of mixed feelings when I was going home.
Avengers: Got super-hyped even though I wasn’t that hyped in the first place.
Breaking Dawn Part 2: Showed second after Avengers, my excitement died immediately.
Kristen Stewart as Snow White goes to war: I want to see this, even though it’s probably gonna suck.
Expendables 2: The audience shat their pants when seeing Chuck Norris. I’m psyched to see Schwarzenegger again, and Dolph Lundgren. Even though the first movie was meh.
I would like to see more movies on my own, since it’s rare my friends are all available on the same date. Just not two movies in a row.
