Crop And Save
Southland Tales (2006)
Not even The Rock can save it
I admit, I like seeing leftist Marxist punks get their guts blown all over the ground by the police as much as the next guy. But, come on, the whole scenario with the Republican party attempting to co-opt cyberspace as some kind of quasi-fascist regime is preposterous to the extreme. The democrats would be way more likely to do so. Anyway, it was a silly movie, way too long, and boring.
Oh, and don't tell me that crap they say at Yahoo about it being a "thinking person's movie." Rubbish. I teach philosophy in college and have a Ph.D.; I don't need to be lectured on what is or is not for thinking people. I know what thinking is, and there is very little of it in this drivel.
I like the Rock, I'm a fan of most of his movies, and he is actually good in this too. It's the story that sucks.
Just a C- Dragonheart
Except Dragonheart had a cool dragon; the dragon on this movie is more like annoying. The rider is stupid and an unsympathetic character. Even Jeremy Irons can't really save this flop, although he certainly does try. I guess the special effects are pretty good but I don't watch movies for special effects so that aspect doesn't impress me. The script should have been deep-sixed before it left the cutting room. Overall the acting is bad and the dialog is stupid and I just don't particularly like the characters I'm supposed to be rooting for. This movie does not do justice to its cast. I have not read the book, so I don't know if it was supposed to be like this, but the part where the dragon flies around some trees and grows about twenty years in a few seconds was dumb.
