Steve Buscemi plus Sandra Bullock in a
yuppie rehab romantic comedy flick. It's nearly as good as it sounds.
& strangely unrelated to 28 Days Later.
28 Days Later
I was sure I wouldn't like this movie
because the zombies are fast & I like the slow zombies you could out
run if there weren't so many thousands of them. But this movie generally
won me over. It's a world where it doesn't take a lot to be one of
the best movies of the year & this is up there.
I don't know why people thought it was
necessary to do an anime movie inspired by the Lang/Von Harbou epic, but
it happened. & to be honest it was surprisingly close to being
something I liked. But it has one of the things that annoys me most
about anime, it looks really beautiful & then there are a couple of
characters that look like they walked out of a Warner Brothers cartoon
& act like it too. I like my sci-fi without comedic relief.
This movie is beautiful. I love
westerns. I think this has some kind of moral messages locked inside
that I don't want to bother to figure out. It's a bit of a rip off
of Shane with a reformed hired gun needing to kill off half
a town, but that's one of my favorite western plot lines anyway.
My favorite thing is the way in the old west you could nearly kill a girl,
reveal you're a psychopath, & get her to ask you to marry her all in
the course of a couple hours.
Christina Ricci is in her share of quirky
independent films & I've always been a fan of hers. This movie
just goes too far for me to deal with & it's creepy to me that as many
people as must've been involved to get the movie made were saying to themselves,
"That's a great storyline." It's about a sorority girl who seduces
a special olympics athlete.
This is an under-watched western.
It stars Henry Fonda & Anthony Perkins. I don't really know how
to explain what it's about, but I wish Anthony Perkins had never made Psycho
because I don't think he's been able to get a decent part since & he's
amazing in the stuff before that. He's always this man who needs
to grow up quick if he wants to choose how his world will end.
