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.

Even on a superficial level, the special effects were ok, but they kept using the same one over and over and over again.

You say my taste is crap, and I will agree, for the most part it is, but this movie is ridiculous.
pfffffffffffffft.

You're a dipshit. You didn't read the graphic novel....so you wouldn't have any clue how the adaptation was.

If you didn't like the movie....then say you didn't like the movie. But don't ****ing claim that it was a piss poor adaptation...because it makes you look like a douche.

I was also underwhelmed by The Watchmen. I am, however, waiting for full judgment until I see the director's cut.

I always give a movie two shots. It's 0-for-1 so far.

I haven't read the book, so I won't comment on the adaptation.

Adaptation, however, was ****ing brilliant. I love Charlie Kaufman.

That's all I'm trying to say. You can comment on the fact that you didn't like the movie.....but if you haven't read the graphic novel...then how can you claim that it was a "piss poor adaptation"?

That's like me claiming that The Lord of the Rings was shitty adaptation of the books....and I've never read them.


And FWIW....I love the LOtRs movies.

Point noted. Adaptation wrong word. However, if it is a good adaptation, than novel must blow chunks too.

What movies released in 2009 have you seen? I'm thinking that I may have been unduly harsh on you. Frazod, after all, didn't like No Country For Old Men yet I still respect him.

I saw Grand Turino, and thought it was great.

But then, in all fair respect, I do like crappy movies. For example, Star Ship Troopers is awesome, in its complete failness.

But that is why I'm absolutely stunned about Watchmen, it was like watching a steaming pile of poo, with a blue penis for 2 hours.

I didn't think it warranted a day long stroke-session, but it wasn't as bad as YOU make it out to be, IMO.

I know that I'm putting my nuts out there for a stomping with this but I didn't love Watchmen either.

I watch the directors cut this past weekend and by the end I didn't give a shit what happened.

Great looking movie and the action was superb.

I did however like No Country for Old Men so I'm hoping that keeps my head above water.

I got drug last Friday to see "The Ugly Truth" with the wife.

The movie was the typical chick flick bullshit....but Gerard Butler is ****ing hilarious. He's the only reason that movie is bearable for guys.
