Re: Movies Seen in 2012

Kicking off my 2012 list:

1. Edge of Darkness: A
2. Star Trek: The Motion Picture: B+
3. Repo Men: B-

This Jude Law, Forest Whitaker, Liv Schrieber and Alice Braga film about a future world where health care, specifically organ replacement, is a high impact art.
Jude and Forest play two buddies who's history together goes back to primary school. They were together in the War that upturned civilization. As Remy and Jake they work for The Union, a company that offers high tech organ replacement for an extreme price with outrageous interest rates. If you can't pay they send their Repo Men out to reclaim the property much the same way if you don't pay on your car. It is therefore a modestly bloody film. Remy's(Law) wife wants him to move into Sales so he can be home with her and their kid. Jake(Whitaker) doesn't want his best buddy and right hand man to get out of Repo'ing. There is your dynamic. It's one of those films though where
and that type thing irks me most times and it did here. Although it is a window for a sequel I suppose but I don't think that's going to happen.
