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 saw Redbelt tonight. It's a David Mamet film.

It's based in the world of MMA, but it isn't so much about the fighting. It's about an honorable man who's surrounded by vicious money hungry scumbags. Chiwetel Ejiofor plays the lead, and he's amazing.

I highly recommend this movie. Let's just say it's no "Never Back Down". (The MMA version of The Fast and The Furious)

Four out of five stars.

Quote:
Synopsis: Actor Chiwetel Ejiofor follows his turn in AMERICAN GANGSTER by taking the lead role in this thoughtful fight movie from writer/director David Mamet. Ejiofor plays Mike Terry, a man who runs his own Jiu-jitsu studio in Los Angeles. Terry's business is failing, causing tension between him and his wife, Sondra (Alice Braga). But their lives change drastically when Terry is compelled to come to the aid of an actor, Chet Frank (Tim Allen), during a bar fight. Frank befriends Terry and invites him to come and work as a consultant on a movie he is shooting. Just as Terry's fortunes seem to be changing, he finds himself caught up in a deceitful plan that has been carefully hatched by Frank's devious agent (who is played by Mamet regular Joe Mantegna). With his debts piling up, Terry decides to go against all his instincts and enter the competitive fighting world, where he stands to win a huge cash prize. But the good-natured fighter is in for a shock when he gets a close-up glimpse of the corruption that runs rife throughout the sport. REDBELT is full of the usual plot twists and fine performances that mark any Mamet movie. It's fascinating to watch the director draw on his longstanding passion for Jiu-jitsu to fill out the storyline, and Ejiofor does a convincing job as a man who draws on the discipline of the sport to stay calm during some testing times. As with many Mamet films, a series of cons are liberally sprinkled throughout the script, calling on viewers to remain alert as each strand of the storyline slowly unravels. The bulk of the movie is conversational, shying away from the action sequences that mark most fight movies, and making REDBELT an unusual and invaluable addition to the genre.

WTF is up with all the ads and rave reviews for Mama Mia? Do you have to be gay or a woman to watch this? I don't even get what it's supposed to be about, other than it's some kind of wacky musical.

Another one that I keep seeing commercials for is Swing Vote. The concept of that one looks completely ridiculous.

Apparently he's a big Jiu-jitsu guy. He was on Inside MMA talking about it. Otherwise, I'd probably never have heard about it. It's very good. Check into it if you get a chance.

I just got done watching Requiem for a Dream. I liked it. I didn't think it was great or anything.

Anyway, I'm pretty sure I'll be in the minority, but Step Brothers looks hilarious. I know it's probably the same old re-hashed shit, but it's FKN funny to me.

Mr and Mrs Smith was rubbish. No doubt that Jolie and Pitt had chemistry, but the plot and execution were pretty horrible.

Yeah, I hated Mr. & Mrs Smith. I never cared what happened to the characters. I stopped watching about 3/4 of the way through.

It was a lot better than I expected. Some of the really crude humor fell flat, but over all, I liked it. NPH was great, again.

It's dumb as hell (of course), but it's a lot of fun.

I really wanted to see that but I kept putting it off until it was out of the theaters.
I generally like David Mamet movies, even the ones other people crap on.

If you want to be charitable. I liked it even less than that.
