Two More Movies

Saturday night, we watched The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

Brad Pitt ages backwards at an excruciatingly s l o w pace. This is a movie I thought would never end. Although, a couple of times I wondered, how did they do that, mostly I wished, so die already.

The theme seemed to be life's a bitch or old age sucks no matter how you come at it.

Sunday afternoon, watched Angels and Demons.

I like Dan Brown. Okay. I've confessed. Let's move on.

When I see people going on and on about what a BAD writer he is, I think, I should have such a problem. He's probably laughing all the way to the bank.

I liked The DaVinci Code, book and movie. I thought Ron Howard's method of visualizing Langdon thinking, was smart.

I didn't like the end of the book Angels and Demons. My suspension of disbelief crashed and burned.

The movie is a fair mystery thriller and, the ending is, hold the phone, positive towards the Church.
In real life, this weekend, President Obama gave the commencement address at Notre Dame. There has been ongoing controversy about this with the Catholic Faithful urged to protest.

Surely, it wouldn't damage tender minds of the Catholic Youth graduating from college to hear an opinion that opposes DOGMA?

Refusing to listen to an opinion that differs is one step away from suppressing differing opinion.

Maybe one of these centuries, they'll learn.

Two Movies

Took in the new STAR TREK Mother's Day afternoon. (Which was perfect by the way, Mother's Day, that is.)

The movie was fun. Except for one lame-ass, unnecessary, self-serving scene at the end, a perfect popcorn film. (And pardon me Trekkies, but some wrinkly old pots ought to retire.)

This evening, we watched JCVD. As in Jean Claude Van Damme.

Not a bad little heist film with a stylish looping structure, and then Van Damme breaks the fourth wall and pours out his heart and it is wrenching. I've never seen anything like this on film. Ever.

A lesson for screenwriters. When film does well what film does well, there is nothing to compare.

Happy Mother's Day

Well, I told kiddo she was lucky I'd never seen an Amarllsis before she was born or I'da named her that and swore it was a fine old Southern name because I thought it might sound exotic when yelled over the back fence.

Aamarllll-ssssssss, time to come home.
