Saw The Bourne Legacy last night. One of the slowest,pointless, and mind-numbingly average movies I've seen in quite some time. Glad I didn't pay to see it.

I watched this last night with my wife (first movie we've watched since the twins were born...yay!).

I'll say three things about it:

First, it isn't really a comedy. I mean, sure - there are some laughs, but that's not really the point of the movie. I could tell within the first ten minutes that this was going to be another wryly-funny-mostly-by-coincidence-but-primarily-existential movie about the interconnectedness of all things, and not surprisingly I was right. However, I have no problem with this whatsoever. It was good film for what it was - it's just that it was marketed as one thing and turned out to be something else, so the inherent problem with this is that the film's creators might actually be missing their target audience somewhat, but that's not my problem, so whatever.

Second, the film has absolutely no repeat watching appeal. This isn't necessarily a criticism, it's just a fact. Once you know how the story goes, the cat is out of the bag and the appeal of watching it again is absolutely zero. Again, this might hurt the movie from a DVD sales point of view, but it doesn't affect me as a rental viewer so I'm indifferent.

Third, the movie was entertaining - plus, it got a little rise out of me when I saw the ending. I liked that. Did I kinda see it coming? Sure, but this movie wasn't about trying to shock the viewer with a surprise ending that he never saw coming - it's about making the viewer care about the characters and then providing a nice creative way for things to work out. Simplistic? Maybe. Surprising? No. Satisfying and somewhat moving? Absolutely. So, I liked it.

I want to see this with my six-year-old son. He watches "Monster House" on nearly a daily basis these days, so I figure he'll really enjoy this. Plus, "Coraline" was great, so I have no reason to doubt this will be good as well.

I'm finally going to see The Campaign tomorrow!

Campaign was a disappointment.

the Apparition got absolutely thrashed. A straight up 2% on RT. The Possession is also getting bad buzz, so much for those two .


I'm not sure if this can be considered a 2012 release. It was on limited release in 2011 but most people didn't see it until 2012 and RT considers it to be a 2012 film. The movie "The Innkeepers". I watched it last night and found it to be decent. It's made by the same guy who made House of the Devil, great pacing between scares but overall I don't think it is a movie I will be coming back to due to very bland lead characters. Still decent for a rent.

The Possession was actually good. Slower build up but the end made up for it. Shocking actually that I liked it but its Sam Ramsi and he knows how to make a horror movie different

Anyway, I finally saw God Bless America tonight. I enjoyed but it could have been better. The bits where they made fun of reality tv and the conservative media were probably the best parts of the movie. I just wish they were a little more creative with the kills (all they really do is shoot people) and Roxanne wasn't a very likable character.
