    Ok finally got to see all of Quantum of Solace.

    Very enjoyable flick and Daniel Craig continues to bring a grittiness to the role that I enjoy.

    Next flick will be Burn After Reading.

    Twilight - 8/10 Great movie. I was actually surprised, I didn't think it was going to be as good as it was. It may be just my opinion but I enjoyed it. I like how they portrayed the vampires, but the ending wasn't very good.

    Yes Man - 6/10 Hilarious, but nothing special about it. I enjoyed it though, good message as well.

    Yeah, I was thinking it was going to be a chick flick. But I liked it, I think it could be taken both ways. Actually all my friends that saw it thought the same thing as me, we went in thinking it was going to be a girly movie and it was actually really good.

    I watched it.

    2/10

    Thankfully I avoided having to write an actual review.

    Can you write one for here so I can know how cinimatically it is not very good? I liked it, but I can see where you would get that rating. I am just curious hearing your thoughts about it.

    Just watched Burn After Reading.

    Quite funny and exactly what I'd expect from the Coen's. Unfortuneately at the end I was left feeling what was the entire point of the film? I have to say though that is was very well done and the characters and their interactions brilliant.


    And Braaq seriously! I saw a preview for Twilight and could feel my testicles shrinking!

    But...it wasn't? From a formal or, rather, a more "traditional" critical standpoint it was poorly acted, shot, and written. From my understanding, Edward was supposed to have this mysterious, romanticized air to him in the book, one which extended beyond his coeds thinking he was "hot" or "gorgeous" or whatever word kids are using these days. Robert Pattinson did a bad job of projecting this vibe, though much fault lies with the director as well, who seems to have taken a 100-level "How to direct movies" course and jumped immediately into the game. The aesthetic is harsh and bleachy, the camera obvious; the effects even more so. In scenes of "action" or faux-suspense, the fast-tracking dolly shots take a back seat to generic handheld ones; a motif as elementary as possible. Yeah, you're trying to exude a sense of immediacy. We get it. There are other ways to do this.

    Character arcs are probably the picture's biggest problem, as it starts off grounding its characters relatively well before delving into the trivialities of their lives and portraying them as showpiece activities. The baseball scene, for one, was stupid. It was purported to introduce how Bella was to be hunted, sure, but this could have been done in a handful of other ways that didn't involve gratuitous use of poor CGI and an even poorer understanding of projectile motion. That's right, I'll criticize the film's understanding of physics, because vampires are, by definition, of super strength but the film takes ideas - potentially interesting ones at that - like, "What would it be like if incredibly strong creatures played baseball?" and turns it into a gimmick. I'm not asking for realism here because I know we're dealing with vampires which, you know, aren't real, but isn't the point of the film to show how their "condition" makes it difficult, nay, impossible to live a normal life? If this is the case (I know it is) why not actually put attention into the details instead of taking a unique thought and taking it in the most obvious direction?

    The handling of vampire lore was poor at best, though this largely due to the film being based off source material. Seriously though, sparkling like diamonds in the daylight? It doesn't even make sense. This isn't hindering of their abilities in the slightest but instead just makes their lives a little less convenient. The ominous, overdone "tension" between the vampire crowd and the werewolf tribe is also half-baked up to this point. It serves more as a reminder of things to come, but is ultimately a pointless inclusion in this film, as its given far too much weight from a directorial sense. It's reduced to a red herring basically, causing the viewer to think one threat is imminent when it's scrapped for another, carelessly introduced one (namely the vampire tracker). The bookend quote of the main narrative (something about sacrificing life for someone you love) is also a formally poor choice, as its aimed at causing those who haven't read the book to think she's referring to Edward and not her mother. Wow, such a shocking twist! What started off decently soon turned into a grating experience as it eschewed detail and overtly concerned itself with minutia. What a ridiculously inconsistent movie.
