Re: Movies Seen in 2009

The Savage Seven - While I watched I thought this 60's bikers vs. native americans movie was so bad only Tarantino could love it...and I checked, he does.

Elizabeth - 1998 Cate Blanchett movie about the Virgin Queen. She gives a good performance, but too much blatant fictionalization in the plot where there needn't be. I'll still try to catch the sequel.

Public Enemies - What is it with Bale? Is he only gonna take roles where he gets outshown by another male actor? Pretty decent movie, but not Micheal Mann's best at all. Again, some fictionalization kinda soils it. Embellishment is expected in such movies, but changing Baby Face Nelson's death...not so forgivable.

Angels and Demons - Tom Hanks, the hero for middle-aged average guys who can't fight. To be fair, it was watchable for utter bullshit.

Inglourious Basterds - Overblown (by Tarantino's fans), pretentious baloney (my zoology professor made the same point about rats and squirrels once)...but still fun.
