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 watched "The Orphanage" tonight. Great, great movie. Del Toro is a genius.

Yeah it was. I got particularly riled up about that old man who had paid his homeowners insurance forever, and his son had to wait until the agent was gone to give his father the news that he had been kicked to the curb, in order to keep the agent from getting greased by the old man.

Not a very inspiring chapter in American history.

Just finished Watchmen and really enjoyed it. Outstanding blu ray as well. While it was long as hell at over three hours, my initial reaction is that it could be my favorite of the comic book movies.

Does anyone know what was added with the director's cut?

Watched a pretty good 1970s horror movie called "Alice, Sweet Alice". Brooke Shield's first movie (she was 9, I think).

A lot of religious/Catholic themes and scenery, murder, and mysterious children. In that way, the movie seemed like a blend of The Exorcist and Don't Look Now, two of the greatest horror movies of the 70s.

The ending reminded me of the endings of the R.L. Stine Goosebumps. In other words, it was a little gimmicky. Other than that, the movie had a lot of stuff going for it.

Just more scenes from the graphic novel. I don't know which ones specifically. I would have bought the director's cut today, but I'm holding out for December's 5-disc ultimate edition.

Ditto.

And I'll again repeat that while probably the most loyal (to the original material) CB flick EVAR it's not for kids.

That, and this is the first time I've ever watched a movie that changed the ending (or cause of ending) of a book/comic/graphic novel that IMPROVED upon the original. Yes, the ending is BETTER in the flick (and more plausable) than the comic.

I think the ending to the movie is far more believable and at the same time delivers the punch-to-the-gut moment the original story did...

I remember that. They used to play that sometimes back in the old KC "Friday Fright Night" days.

I remember it had a really creepy vibe to it.

OK, watched the Watchmen last night. Decent flick, had some nice themes, well made for the most part...but overall too depressing for my taste.

One thing i didnt understand....These guys have no real superpowers right? How come every fight scene it appeared as if they did?? Super punches, super kicks, guys leaping into the air?? Other than it looking cool, i saw no real reason for this?

Action movies, sci-fi movie, nice eye candy movies are okay. But it always comes down to if the story is good and kept your interest.

Give me a movie like 3:10 to Yuma any day.

That's one of the complaints some fans of the comics voiced. I would say that if they followed the novel closer it would have been even more depressing. Maybe too depressing.

In my mind Rorschach/Jackie Earle Haley made up for any problems the adaptation might have had. Even Malin Åkerman's kinda crappy performance.

I watched some movies I never got around to over the weekend.

Untraceable was crap. Not really much more to say. I hate the way anything computer related is portrayed in movies, it always seems like the filmmakers think we're idiots or they are or both.

You Don't Mess with the Zohan was a mess of a movie. Mixing a commentary on the ME conflict with middle school humor didn't work for me the least. Although, Emmanuelle Chriqui did. Wow!

Planet Terror, the first half of Grindhouse was kinda cool, the problem is it couldn't make up it's mind whether it wanted to be a homage or a parody. It makes me think of Evil Dead 2 but nowhere near as well crafted. Evil Dead 2 was a straight horror movie turned up to 11 which made it funny. You couldn't be sure if it was intended to be comedy or just bad, that is it's genius. Planet Terror tried too hard, IMHO, to be funny or over the top in a lot of places.
