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.

There is another from the same director before he made the Vengeance Trilogy, "Joint Security Area" which I have been meaning to check out for a while on Netflix Instant.
Eh, I saw Joint Security Area. It's not as good. A little too mushy for me.

And I agree that the others don't live up to Old Boy, but there are some scenes that in Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance that still make my stomach turn when I think about them.

Defiance

Not a typical war movie. Left a lot to be desired IMO. The film tried to show the hardship of the Russians and Russian Jews of that time, but it just didn't convey what the film was looking for. If the storyline would have brought to light how brutal the Nazi's were in Russia it would have made it much better in understanding the plight of Russian Jews during 1941. Instead what you get is a campout in the woods and a couple romance stories.

Overall was disapointed. Thought the film going in was going to be great, but ended up being just a good movie to watch.

When I watch a Vamp movie, I expect some origin background. And, those Vamps were pretty much mindless killing machines.

No way. No way in HELL would I want to be one of those wraiths. If I'm not kicking it Rice-style, count me out!

Check out "Let the Right One In".

Not that you get any background... It's just the best vampire movie in years.
