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.

The Exorcist is the only other I can think of off the top of my head, but yeah... I'm a HUGE fan of the film (cinema's only perfect film, IMO) and expected to be underwhelmed by the novel. I was blown away.

I watched this over the weekend. I thought it went a little long and was choppy in some places, but otherwise very good. And Rodney Mullen is still very much the man to this day.

I never read the book. Are the sequels just as much worth watching?

I recently reread, "Do androids dream of electric sheep?" and got the urge to watch Blade Runner (Final Cut) again as well. While I do enjoy the movie, I find the "Do androids dream..." a hell of a lot better. I realize the story would be very difficult, if not impossible, to draft as a film script, but I wish it would happen.

Chiefsplanet's post presenting logic just pranked me, and I've lost the power to delete posts. I'm starting to get concerned about the planet's time-space continuum.

i read The Godfather first before ever seeing the film, after which i went on a Puzo binge.
this was in my younger years and i quickly learned that movies rarely capture what the novel was, which sucks!
so i've never read the exorcist, and i initially watched the movie sooo long ago, there are only a few scenes left in memory. should i read the book first before watching it, or the other way around?

you should see them. but give the first movie a few more looks before you do, it takes a few times to fully appreciate it.
he's laughing because he assumed everyone on earth already knew they were great movies.

Personally, I'd watch the movie first. But that's the way I always approach it when I find a movie/novel-combo in which I'm interested. As you mention, movies are generally the weaker of the two, and I find if I watch the movie first, I'm more apt to enjoy the movie on its own merits since I'm not comparing it to my preconceived notions of what it should be.

Yeah I got that. I will definitely check them out. For whatever reason I never got around to watching them. Probably has a lot to do with the fiance doesn't really like sitting through long movies or movies in that genre in the first place.
