Goodfellas and Jaws

I had my new friend Karyn over to watch these two with me. We discussed them, exchanged funny comments and so on. Its nice watching movies with friends, I’ve really missed it! Anyways, I’m going to use Karyn as an excuse for my reviews being short and crap because she distracted me from my note-taking!!! Both films neither of us had seen before which was good.

Close Encounters of the Third Kind

This movie feels kind of like all of Spielberg’s films rolled into one. This was one of his earlier films but you can totally tell its his work. This is actually the first time I’ve watched it the whole way through, I’ve always walked in on it on TV about half of the way through. The plot is about aliens [duh, its Spielberg] and they’re little holiday on Earth. I don’t feel we’re ever given the idea that its an invasion, they just look a little curious. Anyways, I’m a little tired and I’m loosing [once again] my determination for this blog. I don’t mind watching the movies, its just the reviews that I dread. Sorry. I don’t even know why I’m doing this, its not really benefiting anyone… suppose its giving me something to do so I don’t go completely dumb and forget how to write English… Sorry, enough of that, here are my notes, sorry if they make no sense. Watch the movie, then they’ll make sense!!!

  • Scary sci-fi music at the beginning, know what we’re in for.
  • Where did the pilots go?!
  • “Do you want to report a UFO?” The flight center jumped to that conclusion a bit too soon… however, I think we’re supposed to get this feeling that the government or official people are expecting alien contact or something… or just bad writing, who knows!
  • Great child acting from the cutest little boy ever! So adorable!
  • Stuff is moving!! Scary monkey! What’s happening?! I know it’s the aliens but it almost has a ‘haunted-by-poltergeists’ feel about it which terrifies me!
