Re: Movies Seen in 2009

I saw:

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button - It was okay, but way too long.

Gran Torino - This one I liked very much.

That bride movie with Sandra Bullock - It was better than I expected, but not way better. Sandra looked good in her Louboutins, though.

I enjoyed Basterds, not what I really expected but still good.

Re: Movies Seen in 2009

Got together with a buddy of mine last night, went to see Taking Woodstock.

It was an alright movie, filled with quite a few familiar faces, but I wasn't too thrilled with it overall.

My buddy Ryan seemed to enjoy it, though.

I've already got passes to see World's Greatest Dad at a screenin' next week.

Watchmen - ech. Overblown, pretentious baloney. What a waste of (some) good actors. The music choices were aggressively stupid (Dylan? Phillip Glass?) Oh well I just watched it to see why everyone hated it.

Saw Funny People yesterday. I know a lot of people don't like Adam Sandler, but I liked it.

Re: Movies Seen in 2009

Got together with some friends yesterday, to see The Time Traveler's Wife. Most of us have already read the book, and the one hold-out had borrowed my copy and is currently readin' it.

The book was so much better! I know they have to cut characters, situations, and make a few changes, here & there, but for cryin' out loud...

Anyway, addin' it to the list!

And I'll be goin' to a free advanced screenin' of World's Greatest Dad tomorrow night.

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.

Notorious - Stilted, overlong semi-hagiography. Moral of the story: don't let your mother executive-produce your biopic, especially not if you're dead. I should have gone for the one with Ingrid Bergman.
