As you can see, I couldn't resist and already started on the sky, even though the tree isn't completely finished - I've been alternating little confetti-y bits of tree with bigger blocks of sky - but I think this week should finally see the last of the tree, of that one at least.
I also realized it's been a while since I last talked about stuff we've been watching, so quite a bit has piled up; I'll just take yare of it now before it gets even more:
- Click: Felix says he watches this movie every once in a while to remind himself what's truly important in life, and I think that's a brilliant idea. Although superficialy a comedy, this movie really gives one a bit to think...I like Adam Sandler for that, he always seems to find the right balance between clown and 'hero'.
- Back to the Future: You know this feeling when everyone assumes you have to know a movie because everyone else does but really, you just never got around to watching it? I get that a lot, but in this case, Felix hadn't seen it yet as well. And boy, did we miss out - this movie is brilliant, it aged very, very well and I love all those little references and hints between the timelines. I'd really like to the the sequels as well, but I'm a little scared they might go the way of most sequels and just not life up to the original...
- Dark Shadows: I like Tim Burton, and I love Jonny Depp, I really do, but this one...well, the beginning was really good and funny, but it just got more and more abstruse and confusing and at the latest when the werewolf appeared, they completely lost me. Don't think I'll watch this again...
- Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex * But Were Afraid to Ask: Another one of those 'Should hae watched but never got around to' movies, but this time we were not of one mind: Felix gave up two episodes in because is was too absurd for him, I later picked it up where we had left off and found the later episodes to be quite enjoyable. Still, if all Woody Allen movies are like that, I'm not sure I'm going to watch more by him...not quite my type of movie.
- Keinohrhasen (No ear rabbits), a German rom-com starring Til Schweiger. German rom-coms usually follow the pattern of 'Party animal with no interesent in a serious relationships meets wallflower who somehow manages to tame him', but that's okay, and Til Schweiger and Nora Tschirner really fit well into their roles. Also lots of German 'VIP's in the cast, as well as most of Schweiger's (then) little kids in minor roles, quite enjoyable to watch.
- Zweiohrkücken (Two ear chicks), so sequel to Keinohrhasen. Ever wondered what happens to the couple after the end of a rom-com? Well, here you get to know, completely with 'Why did't you take the trash out?!' and ex girl/boyfriends suddenly appearing on the doorsteps. Also quite fun to watch.
- Vikings (Season 1): When Vikings got to amazon prime, Felix and I set right out to watch it, but it took us a while to finish it - not because we didn't like it, it was just that other stuff kept popping up. Yesterday we watched the last episodes of Season 1 - we quite like it, but I think it's even worse than GoT in terms of likeable characters, I think theres only three or maybe four persons I actually trust in this show. Really curious to see what will happen next though, it's a good thing Season 2 is already waiting to get started!
