Movie Madness

Dave and I have been playing catch-up recently, trying to see some movies while they were still in the theatres.

So, here’s what we’ve seen recently.

300 – Lovely cinematography and plenty of eye candy, though I have to admit that Gerald Butler’s Scottish accent was quite peculiar. I enjoyed the modern soundtrack and the action scenes were entertaining, but some of the creepy creatures were just too creepy. Oh, I also totally called that they filmed the Oracle scene under water – yay for me! Did I mention that there is a lot of nudity in this film? Lots.

Hot Fuzz – Another brilliant Simon Pegg movie! I love love love Simon Pegg, who I first saw in Shaun of the Dead. I’ve seen Shaun of the Dead 4 times now, including the Zomb-o-meter version and the director’s commentary. If you haven’t seen it, rent it now! Hot Fuzz pairs Simon Pegg with his buddy Nick Frost once again. The action is terrific, the story never slows down, and the jokes don’t stop. It’s currently playing at the second-run Carmike theatre on Blue Ridge Road.

Transformers – More than meets the eye!! This movie is awesome! Really, really wonderful. Go see it now!! I sat with my knees pulled up to my chest the whole time – there’s not a minute of relaxing in this fast-paced, adrenline-packed movie. Shia LaBeouf did a great job, but what kind of funny name is that? I also found myself feeling a dramatic surge of patriotism and pride watching all the arms of the military responding with lightnight speed and courage to the situations that were thrust upon them. Silly, I know, but that’s just who I am. *shrug*

Silver Surfer – Not as bad as the first Fantastic Four movie, but not great by any means. I was never a fan of the comic so I wasn’t put off by how much they changed Galactus for the movie. Jessica Alba continued to look plastic with her Sims hair, freaky fake contacts and goofy blue eyeshadow. Ioan Gruffudd (pronounced YO-an GRIFF-ith) is pretty cute though they didn’t give him enough gray at the temples. The Silver Surfer himself was pretty cool.

Harry Potter – We’re going to see it today!! Here’s Cristin’s review.
