Movies

Yeah, so I saw a lot of movies this weekend.

Elizabeth: The Golden Age - Mediocre, at best. Slow and dragged on. Shorten it to 2 hours and it's golden. It's not, so it fails.

Michael Clayton - Amazing. Everything about it is awesome. However, it's VERY complex and mind bending. You have to think, so be prepared. I still feel like I'm missing key details of exactly what happened. Gotta see it again.

Across the Universe - Perfect is one word that comes to mind. It just works. And, contrary to many people I bet, the movie is best viewed sober. Trust me.

Tough to find a decent Sci-Fi flick these days though.

if you loved the book, you'll hate the movie. It doesn't even remotely follow the book at all. I was extremely disappointed because it's a damn good book and they should be banned from movie making for coming out with that pile of crap.

I actually screened the film for my theatre when we got it. The guy who built it up and I were watching it late at night and we were a bit spooked when the random flashes started appearing. We thought we spliced something wrong.

Overall, it was a movie that grew on me afterwards. I was like WTF but at the same time, didn't hate it.

Honestly, I think I would of liked Sunshine better if it wasnt for "that guy" and was purely a Sci Fi flick instead of Horror blend.

Instead it was just okay for me. I had to look on wiki to see what hell was going on with the plot after I saw it.

First time I saw "Sunshine" was on DVD with my amp and speakers cranked, the sound alone made the film. Recently I saw it again on one of the movie channels with just the TV speakers, it made a big difference but I still enjoyed it.

Besides Sunshine, I liked both The Descent and Cloverfield. I haven't seen Quarantine but I did see the original Spanish version titled REC, it's pretty good. It free on YouTube, comes in 9 ten minute parts with the English subtitles. The Descent is about the group of woman that go cave climbing in the south, kind of like a modern Deliverance.

I plan on renting "The Strangers" tomorrow, the reviews have been OK. I haven't found much to rent the last couple of months. My last few rentals have been Smart People, the Bank Job, Sex and the City, Leatherheads and Vantage Point. Nothing great in the bunch.

I love The Descent. I saw it in the theater with a bunch of people screaming at the top of their lungs. First, it gets you with the claustrophobia, which is intense, and then the crap really hits the fan.

Ya know, I must have recommended Smokin' Aces to 5 people and not one of them liked it either. Weird. I'm usually pretty good with these types of movies and I loved absolutely loved it.

Glad you liked the others though. Layer Cakes is definitely a keeper.

I loved the Descent. My favorite horror movie of the last few years. I can still freak my girlfriend when I make clicking noises. LOL

Hey, I liked Smokin Aces. I didn't see the ending coming, but maybe I'm a dumbass.

Smart People - I liked what they were going for but too depressing.

It did leave me craving some Thomas Hayden Church. And I did like the message even if it's worn.

Finally saw some movies this weekend.

Incredible Hulk - very good. equal or just slightly below iron man

Walk Hard: Dewey Cox Story - Loved it. stupid but thought it was hilarious. Best part was the take on the Beatles.

The Heartbreak Kid - Thought it was funny. Pretty solid movie.

Night at the Museum - Knew it was going to be bad and expected to turn it off. I think it was bad but strangely enjoyed it.

I should add a movie must really really suck for me to not like it so my take is normally pretty optimistic.
