So I've been out of sorts, of late, regarding Movies Today. Call it oversaturation, call it a heavy-duty come-down after a very exciting summer, whatever. I wasn't going to the movies as much; when I did go, I wasn't impressed.
But slowly but surely, the air is getting colder, the days are getting shorter, and I do think that the movies? Getting better.
Matrix: Revolutions Okay, here's the thing. If you loved the second one, you'll probably love this one just as much, if not more. If you hated the second one, you'll enjoy this one more. If you liked the second one but had some problems with it, you'll be BLOWN AWAY.
Taken on its own, it's a better movie than the second one on so many levels -- intensity, characterization, dialogue, action... It's just plain awesome. Taken with Reloaded, I'm not sure. I can't wait to sit down and watch them together. DVD comes out when?
Anyways. Yes. Give it a chance. Screw the reviewers. Only pay attention to me. Read about philosophy. Reread the Bible.
And be prepared for some pain.
Love Actually Saw a preview of this a week or two ago, and while a few lines of dialogue were predictable, a few Big Important Scenes could have been executed better, and overall the reach is a little far -- it's a damn cute movie. Just -- ridiculously cute. Sticky sweet, but not to the point of illness. Adorable, really. British and undignified and did I mention cute?
Yeah. It may well be the Ultimate Romantic Comedy they're billing it as. And it's really goddamn cute. So if you like cute...
