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.

It was enjoyable. Not great. Not exactly art, but enjoyable. I like Aaron Eckhart, so that helps.

Wow. 12% at RottenTomatoes.

I agree with this review:

Quote:
Bill casts Aaron Eckhart as the title character, a bank executive who's thrust into a mid-life crisis after he learns that his wife (Elizabeth Banks' Jess) is having an affair with a smarmy newsman (Timothy Olyphant). There's little doubt that Bill's mild success is due almost entirely to Eckhart's expectedly ingratiating and flat-out engrossing performance, as the actor does a fantastic job of turning Bill into a sympathetic figure one can't help but root for. The increasingly silly machinations of the film's screenplay lends the proceedings a forgettable vibe that's certainly lamentable, and there's ultimately little doubt that scripter Melisa Wallack (who co-directs with Bernie Goldmann) simply ran out of things for Bill to do (how else to explain such needless sequences as one in which the character gets stoned in a department store?) The lack of a consistent tone is exacerbated by a flabby third act that just seems to go on and on, with the end result a movie that's basically entertaining yet entirely forgettable.

Absolutely. I have a great little extra that came when I got this movie - it's a little 3-inch baby doll with a pack of cigarettes. And the cigs are lightable - they're basically incense wrapped in white paper. So you can stick a cig in the baby's mouth and light it!

I bought it when it was on Demand... We probably shut it off around the same time you did.

Harold and Kumar 2 had a few good laughs. Def worth a rental

I watched 10K BC all the way through. I didn't like it much, but I'd already heard how horrible it was so my expectations were very low. It wasn't the worst movie I've ever watched from beginning to end, but I can't recommend it to anyone.

Just watched Clockwork Orange. I loved most of it but thought the last 1/4 dragged its feet. And the ending seemed flat. Fitting but flat. Predictable but flat.

That said, some of the scenes and editing was amazing. I love Kubrick's feel. The 9th Symphony intercuts with Jesus was awesome.

I just finished Eastern Promises and thoroughly enjoyed it but then again I like pretty much anything that has to do with the mob,no matter what country.I thought the acting was great and the story good as well.Granted,it wasn't your normal mob story but the topic of human trafficking is one that I don't recall seeing much if at all.

The bonus features on the DVD were interesting as well as they did a segment on the tattoos worn by the mobsters and Cronenberg was also saying how Viggo Mortensen was such a perfectionist that he had traveled to Russia and literally hung with some guys like his character and based on some Russians seeing his performance had nailed the walk,mannerisms and accent.

I actually bought the film at Hastings for like $6 and damn glad I have it as part of my collection now.

10,000 BC was absolutely horrid. The fact that they spoke good English made me laugh 40 seconds into the film. Don't insult my intelligence, I can read subtitles. Hell, make up a language if you have to. ... I hated that movie.
