Movie Review Friday
So maybe, just maybe, I'll toss in a movie review or eight from now on for Fridays. ever since I got the Blockbuster Online subscription, I've been living in movie rental bliss. And I see myself more and more wanting to sketch while watching. So my Friday's are going to littered with movie reviews of sorts, accompanied by art from said flicks.
We'll see how long I can keep it up.
Happy Feet. Yeah, didn't make me too happy. I don't understand exactly how this beat CARS for best animated picture. It was a bit overloaded with music and confusing going on's. I didn't like that every penguin looked basically the same, and the stroyline in my opinion, was a bit...well blah. And eventhough the animation was quite good, my kids wouldn't even sit through it.
So yeah, not good for me.
The Pursuit of Happyness. Good stuff. If you're a father you can truly relate. You can't help but feel sorry for the main characters struggling to grab a foothold in life. And dammit if I didn't want to buy one of Will Smith's Bone Marrow Machines myself. Definitely inspiring and touching, and the Fresh Prince and little Willy did a great job. And what a Captain America cameo!
Which brings us to CRANK. Wow what a hokey flick. Action packed and crazy fast. The premise sees a hitman named Chelios injected with a lethal China cocktail. The only way to slow inevitable death is to keep his adrenaline going.
The flick was completely unbelievable, overly violent, and sex driven, (let's hear it for the public dicplay of affection in Chinatown.)
In other words, yeah, I loved it.
