Seven Pounds (2008)
Not at ALL what i expected but a decent movie to say the least.
Going into see Seven Pounds i wasn't clearly sure what to think because the previews left to much open to grasp what the movie was really about. So within the first 20 min or so you are completely lost in the plot, have no idea what is going on and you think Tim, who claims to be Ben, is just a big asshole. All of this comes to an end when the "twist",so to speak, is unraveled at the very last minute of the movie. Basically Tim (will smith) was troubled and haunted by a big accident he made causing the end of seven peoples lives. By this he decides to scope out seven new people who are in need of help badly who he in turns gives his life to.
The acting of this film is great, as i feel will smith no matter what part he seems to impress. Rosario Dawson, to me, this is one of her better movies, aside from eagle eye which i think is up there to. She has been in some bad some good but she does deliver in this film. Other actors, such as woody Harrelson, have very small roles and not a big enough role to grasp the character. Although the casting of the film was still good.
This movie was definitely not what i expected and certainly a lot slower pace in which i hoped. The movie, however, was still pretty good. Nothing is revealed until the last 5 min of the movie and everything falls into place. Up until then it just seems like a pointless love story. Final thought seven pounds=seven Stars.
The Spirit (2008)
Very Bad Rerun of SinCity
First of let me state i was not a fan of sin city but i personally thought this movie made sin city look like a saint. I went into this viewing this film pretty openly although i have heard pretty bad things about it. So i as the film starts i first notice the cheesy acting then as it gets through opening credits i realize frank miller is doing the EXACT same color charting he used with sin city. The Acting was way over the top and just straight out cheesy. Samuel L Jackson solidified this comment as some others have said on here i just cant take him seriously. The plot was pretty bad as well. Now i haven't read much of the spirit comics but it seems to me a lot was left out. I had no idea what the hell the shield was about, nor did i understand the vase. If Samuel L Jackson was already immortal why did he need to drink the Vase? This movie was utter Garbage and to me the only thing that salvaged a 3 rating was the very hot back shot of Eva Mendes.
