Yeah, Heat's a great one.
Saw World Trade Center over the weekend. 5/10.
I just wasn't into it. My expectations might have been set high because United 93 was just so good. Whatever the case, it was still worth the watch if only because of the subject matter.
Man I will never, ever see those 9/11 movies in my life. I was commuting to work in NYC that day when all hell broke loose and I don't ever want to relive that day again.
I just saw United 93 last night and it was pretty damn scary, especially considering I just went to California for vacation and flew on four different airplanes. The movie did an excellent job of putting you on the plane. Overall, it was ver well done, but I wouldn't exactly call it entertaining. It actually rekindled a lot of the anger I felt immediately following the attacks.
I saw Shrek 3 and POTC 3 this weekend.
The wife and I liked Shrek 3 a lot. Sure, it's more of the same, but if you liked the first two, I'm not sure how you couldn't like this one. There were a couple of really great scenes in it including one where the gingerbread man has his life flash before his eyes and one where Snow White and an army of birds attacks a couple of trees. Good stuff.
POTC 3 was quite tedious. Part of the problem is I know my wife was bored which made me feel uncomfortable since watching it was my idea. The story was also way more complicated than it needed to be which made the middle 1 1/2 hours of the film quite taxing to sit through. There were parts of it, however, that were excellent. *spoiler* For instance the end of the movie where the British ship was caught in a gauntlet was very good and made the entire movie worth watching. Him walking down the stairs in slow motion while the ship was exploding around him was amazing.
7.5/10 (I only rate it this high because the effects were so good)
