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.

Awards don't mean everything. Could have been a slow movie year.

Good for you.

I should have said something about unrealistic.

I just watched 300 last night. Great flick, if you don't mind all the violence.

Jet Li's Fearless was pretty good, as well.

Also watched Wild Hogs on Sunday. It was alright for a hokey, recycled jokes kind of fun movie. Definitely not a great movie, but worth a rental.

Wow, what a year for Coppola that year. Incredible.

The Towering Inferno?? WTF??

Always been a guilty pleasure flick of mine but hardly Oscar worthy. McQueen and Newman were so cool in that flick.

A guilty pleasure for me too. Fred Astaire was good as the con artist as well, but his best non dancing role was Julian Osborne.

The image of Philip Seymour Hoffman naked and having sex during the opening credits ruined any chance I had of enjoying the film.

Narnia worth going to see? I thought it looked EXACTLY like the first one. Story, story, epic battle, end.

What didn't you like about the mist?

Was this the Day of the Dead that consisted of an army base and Dean Cain? I'm a zombie movie nut, but if this was the same one I'd have to give the flick like, a 2-3. It was garbage.

Narnia was alright. Mainly for the kids i went. Battle scenes were good.
I caught myself nodding off a little during the dialog between the characters.

The Mist was alright. 6/10 means better then average but not great. I read the book so it kept with the storyline. The main story had them shacked up in the store 85 percent of the movie, maybe that was it.
