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 can't really proclaim a great similarity between the two, because it IS an unexplored facet of the era.

I believe it's greatest strength is that it does not specify where the family is, thus allowing for no Historical footnotes or attachments to cloud the impact of the overall moral theme.

Everyone's roles, as a family and as the outside influences that effect that family, are quite possibly the most honest portrayals you'll ever see in this genre.

Now all that said, I have to thank you in a roundabout way for making me aware of the "Righteous Among Nations" honor. That is one powerful phrase, and I will use it at the appropriate time for the appropriate purpose.

It was a nice nostalgia trip, but that's about where it begins and ends.

I'm starting "Let the Right One In" now; looks fairly promising.
I heard this is awesome. Looked creepy as hell.

I'm watching it in Russian, with no subtitles. And so far, it's a great experience and no hindrance whatsoever. The Russians are getting better at this.

Isn't it a Swedish flick? Unless you understand the language I can't see why you would watch without subs? Figure you do get to pay more attention to what is going on with the visuals instead of mostly looking at the bottom of the screen when there is dialog but miss out on much of the story.

Yep, you're right. The accents don't sound Swedish though.

I finally saw Forgetting Sarah Marshall. It had been on my to do list forever, but finally got around to it.

I thought it was pretty funny. It was pretty original IMO (it should be noted that I don't watch a lot of romantic comedies). I thought it was reasonably well done (except of course the penis to boobies ratio being completely out of whack). I thought the characters did a pretty good job. Mila Kunis did a very nice job. The brittish guy was ****ING HILARIOUS.

Overall, pretty decent. I'd watch it again.

I did. I took my 10 yr old. I think he liked it better than I did. It was what I expected. The irony, I guess, is that I thought it was very predictable, especially the ending. Typical Nicholas Cage. There are 2 disaster scenes that I thought were pretty intense.

I just got this on blu-ray. Love that flick. Kunis is HOT. Russell Brand is hilarious. Yes, way too much sausage, tho.

So I take it was Nostradamus meets National Treasure? Sounds like I'll wait for the DVD.

CHUD basically tore it apart with a review, 4 out of 10 score. Pretty spoilerific, so beware: http://chud.com/articles/articles/18...ING/Page1.html

shockingly Ebert gave it 4 out of 4 stars, and called it the best SciFi movie he's ever seen.
