Insomnia Blogging

December 4, 2012

Up at 3 in the morning today. Couldn’t stay asleep.
Ate some cherry pie. It was very good.
Watched some TV. It was not good.
Best thing on was a rerun of Pawn Stars. Guy brought in Ronald Reagan’s high school yearbook.

So, the guy who made the Lord of the Rings movies is now doing the Hobbit.
I don’t know about you but I felt the existence of hobbits hurt LOTR. They were not an entertaining race. The elves and dwarfs had their moments. Not the hobbits though. They were boring and silly.
Now we get a movie all about a hobbit. No thanks. I’ll pass.
Anybody seen Lincoln? Is it any good? Daniel Day Lewis is always good but Spielberg gets way too preachy these days.
I heard the remake of Robocop has finished shooting. Don’t need to see that. The original is great. I’ll just watch that again. Maybe next time I can’t sleep I will throw on some Paul Verhoeven classics.

    But hobbits and their nature are central to the whole LOTR story! I am totally looking forward to seeing The Hobbit!

    I did love the original Robocop movie – gritty but with a good mix of humour.

    Replace the hobbitses with a better race and it makes for a better story. How about a race of centaurs?

    Lincoln was one of the best movies I’ve seen in years. Daniel Day Lewis was amazing.

    Good to hear. Thanks for the input.

    I haven’t seen a movie in a theatre in months. However, I did see some of the Robocop shoot, on location downtown near Central Tech. I thought I was being smart by making a Schwarzenegger joke, until my husband reminded me that Ah-nold wasn’t in Robocop. I should’ve gone with a “You have 30 seconds to comply” joke.

    Yeah, Robocop never said “Who is your daddy and what does he do?”

    I’m on the fence about Lincoln. There are 120 speaking parts in that movie! Every white male actor in North America and Europe is in that film. That’s a long time to sit still.

    Skyfall was a long time to sit still.

    I heard from a friend whose friend worked on the Robocop re-shoot that it doesn’t look like it’ll be good. Unsurprising.

    Last watchable remake? I dunno. Benhur?

    My friend was in the new Robocop film….I haven’t seen any of them, I’ll only watch it if he can point himself out and we can shut it off!

    I was up at 3am the other day, I read the paper….I hate not being able to sleep.

    Who does he play? Nuke Junkie. #3?

    I haven’t set foot in a theater since … um … 2001. But, everyone I know of who’s seen Lincoln says it’s a great movie and that Daniel Day Lewis did an excellent job. :)

    Sorry to hear about your insomnia.
