Interlude: This week in films

Another busy day today.

I was amused to see that there’s a new Baywatch movie coming out, and it looks … compellingly unterrible.

This looks a lot like the 21 Jump Street remake they did, which was also pretty bad but not as terrible as I’d expected. I enjoyed it at least as much as the TV show. Since I never saw Baywatch (seriously,,I didn’t, not even for the bouncing boobies), I guess I have no investment in this. Except that I love Dwayne and everything he does.

It was also a weekend of Spidey.

I may actually go to see this one (which will make the first since Raimi left the helm), if only so that I’m not left behind by the spiralling madness that is Marvel’s … phase 2? Phase 3? I lost track already.

Still, I saw Ant Man on DVD so maybe I won’t be missing much if I delay. At least I’m unlikely to see it on premiere night, but I guess it depends on what my pals want to do.

There were others, but I can’t remember them now.

We watched Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 last night, so that ended a journey for Wump. Looking forward to the next thing.

Ooh, and I paid 20 cents (yes, cents) for Ted 2 at Anttila’s closing down sale yesterday. Haven’t seen the original but I assume it doesn’t matter. I basically bought it because I don’t believe it could have been burned, packaged, and shipped to Finland for 20 cents. And Marky Mark’s alright.

Oh yeah! That’s right, there was a new Transformers trailer!

Looks … Bay-ey.

I don’t know, the first movie was fun but the rest have just dragged on. They appeal to my BST loving indiscriminate consumer, but there’s so much other good stuff out there right now. I … damn, now I feel dirty. What’s happening to me?
