I'm just going to start this post by announcing that NPH is awesome. And I think it's funny that he plays such a hardcore womanizer in pretty much everything he acts in..but he's gay. If I ever got a tattoo, it would probably be a picture of him with the caption WWNPHD (What would Neil Patrick Harris do?). Anyways, Almost done with this movie challenge. So far I'd say the challenge has been okay, although the questions are usually pretty vague and I ended choosing movies that are probably on everyone elses list. This movie challenge has made me not want to blog as much anymore, and that sucks, so as soon as its over (Tomorrow), I'll start posting some more actual content.

Day 26 – A movie that you love but everyone else hates
I'm going to switch this one around to "A movie that you hated but everyone else loves"
District 9 (2009)


Neill Blomkamp 1/10
I don't know why I hate this movie so much but I do. I went and seen this in theaters like most of my friends had. It was one of most boring things I've ever had to sit through. The biggest thing that annoyed me was how it was filmed like a documentary. When this movie is deep in, I find myself lost, It seems to switch randomly from documentary to actual movie. What really annoys me is when there is the big fight scene (EXPLOSIONS YEAH!!!), there are suddenly news helicopters everywhere that seem to notice everything. I thought it was a big mess, but everyone seems to think of it as an amazing Sci Fi movie. Runner up would be True Grit (2010).

Day 27 – A movie that you wish you had seen in theaters
No Country for Old Men (2007)


Ethan Coen, Joel Coen 10/10
This could be my favorite movie, I love it. I don't even know where to start on why I like it. This movie is so suspenseful that it is pretty difficult at some parts to watch. And instead of using the typical scary music, these scenes have no music at all. It is brilliant in my opinion. Another aspect that made me really like this movie is the villain. The villain is so evil looking, and his funny haircut just shows how alienated he is from society. The movie does end on a weird note, but I don't want to spoil anything, watch this movie!

Day 28 – Favorite movie from your favorite director
Boogie Nights (1997)


Paul Thomas Anderson 10/10
At this point, I don't really have a favorite director, but for now I'll choose Paul Thomas Anderson. I first heard about this movie in 2009, which I know, is pretty late. Obviously, I'm going to love a movie about  porn stars especially during the 70s. What really is amazing about this movie are the long uncut scenes. This makes the parties look real and full of life and its amazing that PTA did this. Good movie, watch it.

Day 29 – A movie from your childhood
The Jungle Book (1967)


Wolfgang Reitherman 10/10
There were a lot of movies I considered before choosing The Jungle Book but this movie stood out. It's so happy and full of life. I wish I could sing with a bear about the bear necessities.


district 9, and no country for old men are great movies. i havent seen boogie nights, and the jungle book is a classic

Great movies, at least you finished the challenge!

district 9 is such a bad movie!
