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.

And it could have been even more sentimental (though that may have fallen from the book's events); the movie doesn't drown you in it, despite the "looking back moments." A large part of it comes from Owen Wilson's extreme likeability, in my opinion. I don't get too sentimental about dogs, and I think a lot of it is taken overboard in our society, but the movie works, in my opinion, because it's more about the family that is affected by the dog, rather than the other way around.

Hugging a stranger is an interesting reaction. Afterall, the last words of the movie indicate that dogs in one sense have a superiority over humans. But it makes sense because maybe dogs, and our knowledge of their relatively short though happy life, have a way of increasing our appreciation for all life in general.

After getting the BluRay player for Christmas, we decided to sign up for Netflix, and it was first in our queue.

I'll probably pick it up when/if it drops under $20.

Hated it, and I'm typically a huge fan of Pitt and Blanchett.

The wife and I are afraid to see it, just due to the crying factor. We are huge dog lovers, and have a golden lab.

I saw Benjamin Button last night, and while I didn't hate it.... I wasn't overly impressed (other than the job that they did with the make-up to make him look old). If I had watched this at home, I would have fallen asleep long before the end.

Just got back from seeing it. The makeup and CGI were amazing. The movie itself was pretty good - about as close to a chick-flick as I'll sit through. Definitely not much in the eye candy department for guys (Cate Blanchett and the witch from Narnia? ick).

I didn't mind seeing it. Once.

I was in love with Cate after The Life Aquatic. She wasn't really pregnant, so I'm not messed up or anything.

Mmm...Ironic you would choose that point, as that was the first point in the movie where I felt I was watching an Indiana Jones movie...

Mmm...

I had the same thought at the video store the other day but didn't pull the trigger. Sounds like that was a good move.

I hate to say it, but I cried. I euthanized my best buddy a month ago, so I've got a good excuse (and I closed the office door).
