I have stated before "my" movies tend to be action or sci-fi and usually get rated around a 6 or 7 on a 10 point scale. My flickchart list can be found HERE....come be my friend there!
Here is a run down of the movies we watched this past week...hover over each poster for more info!

Later that day, Logan and I watched "Meet Dave" with Eddie Murphy. Written by MST3K's Bill Corbett, this movie is actually fun and a family favorite.
|Currently #98 on my flickchart list|
On Tuesday, Haley and I continued our post-apocalyptic theme with "Reign of Fire" with Christian Bale. I picked this up at Blockbuster a few years back without ever having seen it. It just seemed like it would be for me.

Wednesday night, Logan and I watched "Real Steel" with Hugh Jackman. (Haley claims she was watching too but was REALLY deep into her iPod and couldn't recall anything about the movie.) Like "I Am Legend", this movie is based on the writings of Richard Matheson. This was surprisingly good. Logan ate it up! It also gave us a chance to talk about "arcs" in movies and the "three-act structure" of films. He picked up on the use of the structure in the original "Star Wars" films and to Anakin Skywalker's "journey" through all 6 movies.

The last movie of the week, for Logan and I, was "John Carter" with Taylor Kitsch. This, too, was more fun than I had expected. The story was strong and the visuals impressive. I liked some of the "true facts" that were weaved into the narrative. I think we will be buying this one at some point.
I found all the connections between the movies on my own except for ONE where I had to consult "The Oracle of Bacon." I have seen all the connecting movies at some point, too! And there were many more connections....so much so I debated making a chart to show them, but....
Have a great weekend!
