I've been really busy moving. But now it's time to get back to doing what I do best: talking about film making. Here's what I've seen and what's coming up:
Star Trek (2009) - I saw this three or four times, twice at the Alamo, once in IMAX. It was satisfying every time. The gamble worked, the plot was daring and interesting in a way Star Trek hasn't been in years. Yet it all made sense in that science-fiction-y Star Trek kind of way.
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen - Pure movie poison. I haven't wanted my money back from a movie this badly since Batman and Robin.
As much as I enjoyed it, I watched Star Trek too many times. There are still several movies I need to see: Up! in 3D, Bruno, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, G.I. Joe (although after Transformers I may wait until that one comes out on video)
But enough of the popcorn stuff, I need to see some quality films too: Moon, The Girlfriend Experience and now I have to see: The Informant!
It's got an exclaimation point in the title. It's a can't miss.
