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 hate him that much. Only a **** like him would show up on 9/12/01 dressed as Osama Bin Laden and think it's funny.
I wouldn't give a shit about him except that he's being hailed as a comedic genius. He sucks.

Get Him to the Greek was expectedly funny. Russell Brand, Jonah Hill, and especially Puff Daddy were all spot on. Its hard to get past the over-the-top Brand, but the more I see of him, the funnier he gets. He seems to be genuine. By that, I mean it doesn't seem to be an act. He is just bizarre by nature.

If he's funny in it, it's because Judd Apatow wrote the script. Every TV appearance I've seen him in he's lame.

The A-Team was pretty good. For what it is, it was a lot of fun. The review above was spot on.

****ing great movie.

It was very well acted, for what it was IMO. I really enjoyed Walken's, Anwar's, Garcia's, and Lloyd's performances. And holy cow balls that movie was deep as shit. Really makes a guy think.

Spoiler!


If you haven't seen this movie, do it. Yesterday.

I have been meaning to watch that one again for a while. The only time I have seen it was on a very small screen during an international flight in the 90's.

I haven't seen it since college and I was probably stoned and or drunk at the time and only partially paying attention but I do remember it being a pretty intense movie but little else.

To the ship! (ship being top of Netflix queue)

Good call, I need to re-watch.

I'm sure it was. Traffic was a good BBC to U.S. adaptation in that genre, but it's the exception.

Watched Dead Man for the first time, last night. I've always wanted to see this movie, but I've heard reviews from both ends of the spectrum and now that I've finally seen it, I have to say I liked it very much.

Johnny Depp plays William Blake, an accountant who was promised a job in a desolate, murky, and hellish western town. The job fell through and after spending his last coin on a bottle of whiskey- the night ends with him on the lam- a hunted dead man.

The film includes Billy Bob Thornton, Robert Mitchum (in his last film), John Hurt, Gabriel Byrne, that freak- Crispin Glover, as well as the totally awesome- Iggy Pop.

Neil Young strums a haunting and brooding guitar throughout the entire movie.

This isn't your typical western- it's more of a spiritual journey such as Dante's The Divine Comedy including conflicts with honor & law, civilization & wilderness, and life & death. So, if you're expecting shoot-outs or John Wayne, you won't like this. This movie is a journey through hell guided by a Native American named, Nobody. There are some very graphic scenes and some subtle comedy in this. It's slow, and that mystery is driven by Neil Young's soundtrack. Not great, but a really good film by one of my favorite director's- Jarmusch.

Caught The Road last night. It was decent, I was yearning for some more detailed, post-apocalyptic brutality, but that is just my tastes.

I watched Cube for the first time last night and I must say, I really enjoyed it.



Is the sequel worth checking out?
