No, unfortunately. I saw Terminator, mostly because I love Bale, and I found that to be one of the worst movies I've seen in a very long time. Now it's just my opinion, and I'm no professional movie critic, but I thought all aspects of the movie were, in a word, terrible--the direction was poor, the writing was worse, the actors were wooden characters, the story was choppy and inconsistent...even Bale was a one-trick pony, who could only scowl and look all ticked off and everything. I was highly disappointed.
However, on the opposite end of the scale, I was completely blown away by a small budget film through Lionsgate called "Right at Your Door". I got it on Netflix, and though it gets a little slow in the middle, the plot twist at the end, the direction of the shots, writing, and delivery of the lines was absolutely thrilling. Completely enthralling, and well worth the rental.
Now, I have Frost/Nixon waiting, and I'm interested to see how Ron Howard directs this. I find him slow and tedious in most of his movies, and I'm hoping to be pleasantly surprised to see the tension develop.
I saw "My Sister's Keeper" tonight and absolutely loved it. It was very well written, the acting superb, very impressed with the young actors especially. Very well written. (nothing worse than a cheesey movie) And the soundtrack is GORGEOUS. Can't wait to get it.
***** 5 Stars! It was a nice surprise for me as I hadn't read up on it before going, which I never do.
I am so tired of BOOM! BANG! CRASH! movies I could scream. Can Hollywood not make a movie any more without blowing something up?? - Steve Macon-
L. J. Swiech said:Nothing that has come to my local Cineplex interests me. I have seen some of the current far via the internet and my fears were justified. I did go to see Quantum of Solace the first time I attended a new release in 8 years and was disappointed to say the least. Maybe if I was under thirty the violence and sophomoric humor that is Hollywoods standard might be more palatable.
