Well, maybe the word "recently" is a bad choice as it's more than a month since I saw these movies, but that's just a minor detail, isn't it?
I simply love long flights if there is a little screen in front of me, so I can watch movies. Actually, I hardly ever sleep during the flight, because there' s so many movies I want to see. On my way to California before Christmas, I chose these movies:
Big Fish (2003)
I had no idea what this movie was about, I had just heard the title somewhere and thought I wanted to give it a try. The circus part reminded me of Water for Elephants (haven't seen it yet). It was a bit odd, but I liked it.
Midnight in Paris (2011)
My first Woody Allen film, but not the last. It was just as good as expected, both the story and the visual part. Paris is such a beautiful city. And so is Marion Cotillard (beautiful, that is - not a city). Definitely recommendable - the best of these four films!
Friends with benefits (2011)
I was entertained all the time during the film, so it was not bad, but it's not a must-see. It was fun though. I'm just happy that my parents wasn't watching it too. Too many nude scenes for that, haha.
Mr. Popper's Penguins (2011)
Well, this is a bad, boring movie. Usually I like Jim Carrey's movies, but this one wasn't good. Maybe I'm just too old for it.
