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.

My vote is Goodfellas, but it's damn close. And I'm talking just The Godfather, not a combination of The Godfather I and II.
That's a good reminder. I need to watch Goodfellas now. I have seen bits and pieces of it but now I need to watch it all the way through.

The Possession wasn't a total waste of time, but I also wasn't really expecting much.

I should mention that it isn't even scary at all. The DVD's main menu video sequence is by far the scariest part of the film, and even that is only creepy.

So I just watched Goodfellas. I really liked it but I would The Godfather was a little bit better. The tension was just elevated nonstop.

I watched V/H/S on Netflix streaming the other night, and I must say, pretty damn solid for a horror flick. It was all "found footage" stuff but it kept me on my toes the whole time. Parts were super creepy with good amounts of gore thrown in.

Ever seen Road to Perdition with Tom Hanks, Jude Law, Daniel Craig, and Paul Newman? That's probably my favorite mob movie...

I missed that. Anyone ever read the graphic novel it was based on? Most people haven't but I thought the ending was better. In the graphic novel, the boy shoots Jude law's character at the end. Then, it pans out to him later in life and he is telling the story. At that point, he is a Catholic Priest.

So, it's like he did become what his father was protecting him from but, he redeemed himself and turned out better than what his father would have liked.

I liked it better...

Got to see End of Watch last night, couldnt have loved it any more.

Great story, great acting and chemistry between Gyllenhall and Pena... just plain great, the movie really works hard to get you emotionally invested in those guys and it really pays off, great character development, they were very easy to buy as partners.

It also does a great job of showing all of the good things that cops do on a daily basis across the US... getting kids out of abusive homes, going above the call to save people in burning houses, getting violent pieces of crap off the streets, etc.

Probably the biggest thing i took from this movie though, is that these mexican gangs need to be brought to heel asap, roughly. They're already doing the things from the movie in this country, human trafficking, murders, kidnapping... the only thing i'm unaware of them doing is brazenly targeting police, but thats not far behind you can bet. They make the old italian mafia look like childs play, they're basically Al-Qaeda south, its only a matter of time before they start killing rancher families who try to thwart them and police.
