I Am Legend (2007)
Really well acted, well done film
At first, I thought that this movie would be okay at best, abysmal at worst. But I was pleasantly surprised to see Will Smith, "Robert Neville," give a spectacular performance, full of emotion and anger, and bordering a bit on the insane side. I take off points only because it seems like a film that's been done before (and it has, I know, but I don't mean literally). What sets it apart from the rest of the post-apocalyptic man made human killing virus that zombifies people films is the depth of Will Smith's character. With cross-cuts to dreams and the portrayal of Robert Neville's loneliness, the audience connects with him on both a deep mental level and a more surface level driven by pathos. You both laugh and cry with him, you jump out of your seat when he gets scared, and you cheer for him throughout. I walked in expecting a zombie shoot-em-up and settled into something much more thought provoking and intense. It wasn't perfect, but it certainly deserves a look, even if you're not into the whole undead thing.
Spider-Man 3 (2007)
Bruce Campbell stole the show... How sad.
So, yeah, perhaps the worst eight dollars I've spent in five years. It was boring, hokey, and cheesy all at the same time. The use of horrible jazz scenes, the predictably cheesy lines in the final battle, and the increasingly awkward romance between Dunst and Maguire made me want to vomit. It was uncomfortable sitting there and watching it. It was like Raimi took the cheesy/quirky aspects of Army of Darkness, which made it a B movie classic, and tried to mesh them with a darker, more serious Spider-Man. Honestly, he ought to be ashamed of himself. As should Stan Lee. On a high note, Bruce Campbell is hysterical in it. His French accent was awful, but he pulled it off nicely. Although maybe I'm lenient on him because of nostalgia.
