More movie talk, just

In attempt to bury my last post which may be getting too much negative attention, I'll go back to what I know best (besides sex). That's movies!

I went to see 16 Blocks last night. It was much better than expected. Not perfect, but worth seeing. I have always liked Mos Def, and of course Bruce Willis is the man (manly but not pretty, like me!), so the casting was good. David Morse played a good part though I'm not sure his character had the best writing. Too wishy-washy. Mos Def was the stand out performance - he and Willis both played characters a little different from what they usually play. See Mos Def in The Italian Job, or Something the Lord Made, or The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy if you want more.

I saw Flight Plan on DVD a week or two ago. Hello, drink coaster! This DVD isn't worth a second viewing. Glad my friend bought it and not me! It is another example of a great cast making a big pile of shit - like Sphere. So, if you can't tell what I mean, let me be clear: I didn't care for this movie.

I also watched Saw and Saw 2. And they were just okay. I am not much in to horror but I do love suspense. These sort of walked the line between those genres. I think the reason I don't like horror is that the movies never have good production values. There hasn't been a great horror movie made in years. You might get something out of these, but I'm not willing to recommend them.

Edit: I had called these reviews, but they are just random comments, so they don't quite qualify as reviews. I'll do better next time!

I saw The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy while I was on a UA flight to come back to Malaysia. It was stupid and boring as hell. But I like Flight Plan Lets play Bonnie and Clyde

I am not sure what there is to like about Flight Plan. Tell me!

Of those last 3 Mos Def movies, I prefer them in the order listed. The Italian Job is my favorite of all 4.

The Machinist (Christian Bale) very haunting.

Matchpoint not a real Woody Allen movie, but good, but not in a satisfying way, likesay.

Loved "The Machinist".

"Cry the Beloved Country" is always a good one.

I'd be interested in doing a "He Said/She Said" movie review comparison. What say you? Pick a movie.
