Yeah will do. I've actually read a few articles about it and have been meaning to rent it.

He wasn't exactly a little ray of sunshine in Meet Joe Black.

3:10 to Yuma - 6/10
Very very disappointing ending. A potentially good movie got really corny and stupid.

I loved this movie 10/10, one of my favorites in a long time. Here is why I loved the ending, I would love to hear your feedback as to why you didn't like the ending.




[SPOILER ALERT]







I loved this movie the first time I watched it. The cinematography is breathtaking, in my opinion. The visual look of this film is a thing of beauty. They really framed every shot and made the eye attracted to all the right parts of the screen. I enjoyed the emotional struggle of a man trying to provide for his family at the sake of his ego and manhood. He had two boys; one adored him and thought of him as a hero, while the other saw the coward and the hobbled man who could not provide adequately for his family. These two things were metaphors for each other. I like most people (who never saw the original) was surprised at the end when Dan (Bale) dies, then everyone proceeds to die at Ben Wade's (Crowe) expense. It didn't quite all add up to me, but I realized why Dan (Bale) died. He didn't want to be a coward to his son.

The second time I watched it, I picked something up that I didn't the first time. At the end when Wade (Crowe), Dan (Bale) and the railroad worker are all in the hotel room Dan said something to the railroad worker. He told him to watch after his son and give his wife $1000. The railroad worker said, "I'll do anything if you get Wade on the 3:10 to Yuma". Dan (Bale) then turns to Ben (Crowe) and asks him if he heard what the railroad worker said and Ben said he did. This is why Ben (Crowe) got on that train. He wanted the family of Dan to be taken care of and knew if he didn't kill his crew then they would go after him for turning his back on them. They went and risked their lives to try and get him back from the authorities and if he just got on that train, then they would have killed him out of anger.

Just my analysis. I love this movie.
You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...

As I've mentioned before, I liked the ending to 3:10 to Yuma, I just thought it could have been much better as a whole than it was, and for that reason I was disappointed.

I thought 3:10 to Yuma was good, but not great. I'd rather watch Assassination of Jesse James or There Will Be Blood for cinematography, and There Will Be Blood for themes, motifs, character representations, etc. etc.

It was still an entertaining movie to watch, Russell Crowe did a good job, imo.

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

Semi-Pro:


Very funny. Will Ferrell was good as usual. There were some very good lines ("if you have a small child use it as a shield," and some others which i can't say here) and funny scenes.

8/10.

I watched 25th Hour for the first time this morning (I'm an Ed Norton fan). I thought it was pretty decent, certainly worth a watch. It's about a drug dealer (Norton) who is about to go to jail for 7 years and it chronicles his last day of freedom with flash backs to how he got to this point.

7/10

I thought Semi Pro was up to my expectations. I figured going in that the story/premise would be weak - but there would be enough random funny stuff from Will Ferrell to make it worthwhile. The scene where they are playing cards with Tim Meadows was great - though it had NOTHING to do with the plot of the movie. 6/10. (Had it not been Will Ferrell - 3/10)

I saw Horton Hears a Who last night - I must say - much better than I anticipated. I was a fan of the Grinch adaptation with Jim Carrey - but this one was better. Definitely the top Seuss adaptation to date. The voices and characters were very good - and they did as much with the plot as they could without wandering aimlessly away from the heart of the book. A person's a person - no matter how small. 8/10. Maybe now they won't show a preview for it during every commercial break on every channel.
