I'm still feeling tired. Think I may have picked up a cold but I'm fighting it. Thought I'd tell you about a couple of movies I watched recently... and these are just my opinions--feel free to disagree.
Click. Adam Sandler playing Adam Sandler. I know he can act, I saw him in Punch Drunk Love and finally saw that he can act. But this movie is boring and PREDICTABLE. Terrible. No comic moments at all. How many times can you show a dog/dogs humping a stuffed duck? It just isn't fuuny. Kate Bekinsale looked incredible though. Oh my, where is my diet :)
The Lake House (LAKE HOUSE Deb). I loved this movie. It was beautifully shot, the story unusual and taut. James Patterson always gives his stories a twist and this one just was so full of style. And Sandra and Keanu. Muah.
Loved it. DH loved it too. And he hated Click too.
United 93. This was a hard movie to watch. I wondered how Hollywood would handle such a sensitive subject without bias or bravado. The movie highlighted the fact the US 'agencies' had no idea how to coordinate or avert this situation (hopefully now rectified). It highlighted the fact the terrorists were real people, with strong beliefs they were willing and eager to die for. It highlighted the bravery and humanity of the people on that flight. I mean can you really imagine what they went through?
Made me think about the villains in my stories. They are always the heroes of their own stories. Remember this when you're writing people doing terrible things. It was an excellent reminder to me.
I haven't watched the World Trade Center movie yet--anyone here seen it??
