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.

Maybe fix a couple holes in the plot, but Christ almighty, he was a bad fit for that role.

This movie needs to go away...GOD WILLS IT!
Well, I was pissed that my two favorite actors in the movie died and both relatively early.

Oscar wise, Rachel's Getting Married.
Otherwise, Religulous or Changeling.

I was just amazed at how bad Orlando Bloom was at being a bad ass.

I wish I had only seen this cut without the prior cut clouding my memory but the second cut was actually somewhat good.

Watched two tonight.

Get Smart - I had little expectations which probably helped but I rather enjoyed this for what it was.

The Happening - Ugh.

What did they change so much to make it better?

The only thing that I could forsee them putting in there would be a little bit more about his journey so that could explain his behavior a little more.

Damn it, I watched I am Legend last night. You guys were right, but my dumbass watched it anyway. Why couldn't I have listened to you guys.

I also caught the last half of Desperado last night. Terrible but kinda fun. It was good for a change up.

If you noticed early in the film when he was in prison all the other cells were empty so I'm pretty sure that part is all in his head as well which leaves open the question 'what the hell is real what's imagined'?

I think one would have to dissect the film to figure out what's real and what isn't for it to make sense. I understand exactly where you're coming from in WTF?
I came here looking for the same thing. Since no one here seems to know, I looked on imdb and found a reasonably thorough explanation.

It added a decent amount of plot development which helped with several character's behavior and particularly with the Eva Green one. Basically the 45 minutes or so that were cut were fairly important to the overall storyline.
