Here are some uber-quick reviews of some movies Paul and I have seen lately, in no particular order:

  • Happy Feet: stupid and cute in a sickening way, then heavy-handed environmentalist propaganda
  • Flushed Away: fun and funny but not deep
  • 16 Blocks: very good drama, characters faced hard choices, definitely recommended
  • Live Free or Die Hard: good and often absurd fun, plus the Mac guy
  • Ratatouille: thoroughly funny, compelling, and endearing — with some serious themes
  • Firewall: basically boilerplate, Harrison Ford plays a computer whiz about as well as I’d play Michael Jordon
  • The Kingdom: better than expected, striking contrasts between the Americans and the Saudis
  • Black Book: overdone but not all bad, like a sauce at a mediocre restaurant with pretenses of cuisine, plot holes that I’ve forgotten
  • Fracture: good DA versus smart killer thriller
  • Rocky Balboa: predictable, unmotivated, and generally a waste of time
  • Lady in the Water: huh? okay, um, whatever.
  • Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End: I’m too confused to care any longer, and what’s so damn good about piracy anyway?
