Been having a bit of a dvd-fest at my house........
Zodiac (2007): 9/10
A perfect storm of a movie for me:
I thought this was an excellent film.
Spoiler discussion:When they interviewed Lee Whatshisface, it was pretty obvious it was him. For example, he said he was left-handed and he had his watch on his left arm. Weird that they couldn't "ask him back to the station" for questioning, or take a footprint from his boots.
They took an interesting idea and wrecked it with cookie cutter bullplop.
I should have known this was going to happen when someone said "Get me the president" in the first 10 minutes.
A broken family with the dad who is a writer, and he just happens to save the day. Gee, I haven't seen that storyline 23 billion times before. And the family always escaped disaster by exactly 3 seconds. How coincidental.
Do yourself a favour and don't watch this.
X-Men 1 & 2: 6/10
They were OK I guess. That devil thing was a bit annoying in the 2nd one. 1 was better then 2.
River Queen: 4/10
This was interesting to me because I have watched documentaries on the Maori vs European wars of the 1800s, and it is beautifully made. Unfortunately the story is kinda boring crap.
It's worth watching for how much effort they put into it, but don't expect to be entertained.
Good Night And Good Luck: 3/10
Only two things were interesting in this.
2. Seeing someone portray Bill Paley, because I have read a book where he was a minor character.
This could have been made so much better. What a shame George Clooney was involved.
