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 did read where Ben directed this flick before I watched it. I was pleasantly surprised. A great flick, imo. It's funny to see Morgan Freeman drop some "F" bombs.

That movie started out great, not as good as Raising Arizona, but very good until Brad Pitt got killed. The Coen's did it twice in a row, No Country for Old Men was great until Josh Brolin got killed.

I just got done watching Gone, Baby Gone. Excellent flick. I liked the main actor (his name escapes me).
If you liked Casey Afleck in Gone Baby, then you should see him in The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. Brad Pitt plays Jesse and Afleck plays Ford. It's long and slow but very interesting, Sam Rockwell was also very good as Ford's brother.

That movie was based off of a Dennis Lehane book, just like Mystic River. Scorsese is making a movie from another one of his books called Shutter Island; Leonardo DiCaprio stars in it. It's supposed to be release in October of this year. I bet it's very good.
Sam Raimi is also directing an adaptation of another of his books, The Given Day.
So far his books have translated well to the screen so I have high hopes.

It could either be crazy good or super lame. With Scorsese and DiCaprio though there is a good chance for the later

well Josh Brolin had to die, that's how it went down in the book. They kept the film 99% true to the book.

I knew about the book, though I have never read it. So when I watched the movie and saw how it ended, I figured it was cause thats how it was in the book. However the movie just felt SO anti-climactic. They follow Brolin around the whole movie and then kill him off screen?

I liked the movie overall, and I understand why it ended like it did. But after a great movie like that the ending left me cold
