It's a good Sign
This was an absolutely excellent film. Normally I avoid these types of suspenseful movies because they terrify me, but I had to go see the gorgeous Joaquin Phoenix. I was not disappointed by this movie, Joaquin fans he is as good looking as ever, if not more so. The movie itself had me squirming in my seat, when I wasn't jumping and screaming. It was just so real and realistic. I could see myself making decisions the characters made, and to watch the characters watch television seemed so eerily like Sept 11. The children in the film also did excellent jobs, and by the end of it I nearly forgot the boy was a Culkin. Unlike other films by M. Night Shyamalan this movie does not need a second viewing, however I feel it deserves one, unless like the friend I attended the movie with you were frightened enough by the first viewing. I would recommend this movie to anyone who does not have a heart condition.
Pearl Harbor (2001)
Almost Perfect *possible spoiler*
I had heard repeatedly that the love story was lacking before I saw that show, but that you should go just to see the 40 minute effects show. I couldn't agree less.
I thought the entire movie (except for about 30 seconds at the end where they just got lazy with the story and a couple of other things I'll get into in a bit) was great. It was well balanced, and well shot. And the love story... the decision Evelyn had to make was heart wrenching. The interplay between the three main characters was wonderful. The battle scenes were riveting, hauntingly realistic without being gory. I started crying at about 8:30 and cried almost all the way through to 10:00, pausing only for the lame president scenes.
That was a part of the movie I didn't think went over well, nothing against Jon Voight, I liked most of his stuff in this movie, but what seemed to be some sort of inspirational scene completely fell flat. The whole standing up thing was waaaay too hokey. I also didn't appreciate all the references to "Our Country" and "Us" in the version they released up here in Canada, I thought it was absolutely crude. They changed those words in other international releases, why not for us? We put up with enough Amerocentric crap as it is. I guess I have one other qualm about this movie, it seemed to me that the Cuba Gooding, Jr. bit of the movie was tacked on as an afterthought. It almost didn't fit. I hate to say it was just to expand the demographic, but that's what it seemed like.
This movie did make me an instant Josh Hartnett fan, just add water and stir. That boy is gorgeous. I could go on and on. And on.
The Worst Movie I Have Ever Seen!
This movie was terrible! My friend and I were so bored by it we fast forwarded through the last half of the movie just to see what happened. It's the typical sports thing, she either wins or she loses. The only remotely interesting thing was when the one guy refers to someone as a Veg-e-tab-le. That will be a line my friend and I bring up for years to come reminding us of this colossal cheesy cliche waste of time
