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.

I'm extremely tired of the same old "Hans Zimmer" score (that includes all of his guys at Remote Control) and was excited to hear a blockbuster with someone other than one of his guys. But unfortunately (IMO), this wasn't even on the same level as one of his normal scores. I was completely underwhelmed by not only the composition but the music production. Blah. Actually, Yuck.

Again, that's just my thing. I know that 90% of the people that watch films (that does not include you) don't pay attention to the score at all.

Didnt even realize Zimmer did the score? To me it was practically non existent.

I like most of his scores.

I liked Iron Man. I thought Favs did a wonderful job with the character. It has a nice balance to the dark take of Batman.

I agree about Hans Zimmer, though I really like James Newton Howard.

I watched "Rocket Science" last night....a really nice film ('07 sundance winner).

Kind of like Juno...without any known actors...and no pregnancies.

Really liked it....well written, well acted....stayed away from obvious hollywood plot-lines or conclusions.

Highly recommend it for anyone looking for a good indie flick...

Zimmer didn't do it...it was some Indian guy. He might work for Zimmer, though.

This looks interesting.



Wish Cruise would use a german accent, though. Reminds of Costner in Robin Hood.

To Me Valkyrie looks good, but the buzz on it isnt very good. Its been bumped around the release schedule like 3 times. It was supposed to come out back in June originally.

I also think Singer is hit or miss.

I thought it was horrible when I saw it too. But then I was told that the Directors cut is 1000000x better and that I needed to check that out. I'm still waiting to rent that.

I'm not sure what the director's cut will fix about Orlando Bloom's god aweful acting job.

Maybe fix a couple holes in the plot, but Christ almighty, he was a bad fit for that role.

This movie needs to go away...GOD WILLS IT!
