It’s been a while since we’ve gone to the theater to see movies. And finally we saw a few films that didn’t seem like a complete waste of time and money.
This is quite possibly the best robots-turning-into-cars movie I’ve ever seen. Though I will say this: Worst. Story. Ever. This flick (and I use the term "flick" loosely) was pure eye candy – humans and machine alike. If you do decide to go watch this, I recommend bringing along an MP3 player and listening to that instead of the horrendous dialog and story. Don’t worry, the explosions will be loud enough.
Live Free or Die Hard:
Another good action flick with cheesy dialog and storyline. I miss Hans.
Catch a Fire:
Not good. Pretty boring. The intent and story had total potential, but execution was lacking.
Children of Men:
Not bad. Not great. Sort of had that Blade Runner sort of feel, but with a crappier storyline. I really liked the way they subtly mixed in the new technology elements into the environment which made it a bit more believable. I’m guessing there’s no need for rubbers in that world…
Running with Scissors:
What a piece of crap. I wanted to ram a pair of scissors in my skull after this.
If you want to see a horrible movie with horrible dialog and a horrible storyline but with lots and lots of naked Maggie Gyllenhall, then this movie is for you.
