I have seen several movies lately. While I don’t have a massive amount of time to go into each and every one, I’ll share with you their names and how I felt about them (briefly).
Toby Joe and I saw Ocean’s 12. It was REALLY long. What’s up with directors who are unable to stop themselves from making their movies 2 + hours long? I don’t get it. I love Soderbergh, but, by God, the guy could have said it all and made it 40 minutes shorter. Catherine Zeta-Jones is still way hot, however.
We had the most unfortunate experience of sitting through Tom Bat Shit Crazy Cruise in The Island yesterday. Halfway through this extremely long, over-the-top action-packed movie, I thought to myself, “Wow, this movie was so created for the Maxim reader.” And then Maxim was later mentioned when Ewan McGregor meets Ewan MeGregor and Ewan McGregor hits on Scarlett Johansson even though she’s already dating Ewan McGregor. I kinda want those two and a half hours back, actually.
Did you guys know that The Fockers happen to share a similar sound to another English word? Yeah. That’s about all I have to say about Meet the Fockers. 400 One-liners said four hundred times. (In all honesty, this movie was perfect for a boring day spent baking.)
And then there was the quiet film called Winter Solstice. I loved this movie. I grew to love the characters. How is it a movie like War of the Worlds makes millions and something like Winter Solstice goes almost unnoticed? I will never understand us.
That is all.
