Movies

Well, it keeps happening. Last night was one in a long line of disappointments in my cinematic selections. We watched "Children of Men". Highly acclaimed, but for me it was just plain depressing. For those of you who haven't seen it, I won't spoil the ending for you, but let's just say I wasn't happy.

What is it lately. Am I too harsh of a critic? All I really ask for is a good plot (this movie certainly had it), good dialogue (eh), and an ending that leaves you feeling that the storyline has resolved. Hmph. It just left me feeling a little sad, and a little angry. Maybe someone else has a different take on the movie.

And why can't I pick out a movie that gives me everything I want. Maybe I should just stick to romantic comedies, and "scare the pants off of you" thrillers. Or better yet, I'll pick up a good book until Hollywood gets it act together. Ah, who am I kidding. I'll be ranting in another week or so after I go against my better judgement and watch another one.

I guess I feel the same way. I have not even been able to stay awake through any move I have watched latley.

Children of men was pretty good but did have a bit of unresolvedness to it which was a tad annoying. It was desingned that way, though, to keep the focus on the human nature of those around. It was less about "the girl" and "the how" and more about those involved in the situation from every angle.

Wasn't my favorite, but... if you want all of that, then you need to say away from films like these and stick to pixar films. :D

And whatever you do... don't watch Babel.
