Absolutely hilarious — Wired has reposted their 1999 review of The Phantom Menace but this time their review is in 3D.
I recently watched In Time starring Justin Timberlake, who yes really can act, and Amanda Seyfried.
It’s sort of a riff on Equilibrium, one of my most favorite movies, and Surrogates. In the movie, people stop aging at 25 years old and are then given 1 year worth of time (life). That becomes their currency, used to buy things and received as payment for work and such. While a bit rediculous of a premise, it results in some rather interesting scenarios. It’s more of a thought provoking movie than anything.
It’s a good but not great movie that is worth seeing. Also if you’re a gearhead like me, keep an eye out for the slick semi-retro styled vehicles. Whoever did the set design and such for this movie did a great job.
A bit of an odd ending though and not what I would have gone with but hey. 🙂
I never got around to writing my thoughts when I saw it a few weeks ago so I’m forcing myself to do it now.
Overall I really liked it. Rooney Mara’s performance was absolutely amazing. I really hope they make the next two films. A little confusing in parts due all of the characters but not too bad.
However be warned that it is an extremely graphic and violent movie. It’s not done in poor taste and it’s an important part of the character development but if you’re easily offended, I’m not sure it’s the movie for you.
In short, see it but be prepared.
I just finished watching the movie Contagion. While slow, it was still fairly good and more about the characters than the contagion itself.
I suddenly have an urge to bathe in hand sanitizer though…
While the first G.I. Joe movie was decent but nothing special, this next one looks to be quite a good time. I can’t wait.
Wow, this upcoming movie starring MMA fighter Gina Carano actually looks surprisingly good! Most fighter-turned-actor movies don’t, but I guess this one is going against the trend.
I watched Ben Affleck’s “The Town” tonight and I highly recommend it. Very violent (which may or may not be your thing) but also a really interesting plot and a bit of a love story. Well worth seeing.
I saw “Tron: Legacy” this evening in 3D at the most excellent Roseway Theater. I enjoyed it a lot. Highly recommended. 🙂
PS: It’s better if you watch the first Tron before seeing this one if you have never seen it before.
