Movie Reviews

Everyone go see Wall-E immediately, IMMEDIATELY, seriously, drop what you're doing. It is really that good. Warning for sensitive people: BRING KLEENEX. I bawled through at least three quarters of the movie, often while laughing hysterically at the same time.

However, there is absolutely no rush to go see Wanted, and in fact, you could easily go without ever seeing it. You could watch Domino or Gone in 60 Seconds and have the same effect. Better yet, you could make a screensaver with shots of Ferraris, Angelina Jolie, and shiny guns, interspersed with screen-caps from The Matrix, and you would have the entire movie. Oh, and maybe a shot or two from Fight Club. Having said that, I enjoyed it, because I like all those things--Ferraris, The Matrix, etc--and getting them all together in one movie wasn't bad. Still. Not a work of art for the ages.

YES YES YES it's a MUST see. It's got just the right amount of cuteness, emotion, CGI. It'll be hard to find a movie with such an amazing balance.

I cannot bring myself to watch a Jolie movie :(

Ferrari? Really? I must have been sleeping. I saw a Mustang, a Viper, and a Vette, but no Ferraris.


BTW, did you know that's the same director as Night Watch and Day Watch? Humph. Go figure.

Hi Megha,

GASP!! Surely you don't dislike La Jolie! I'm still hoping that one day I'll grow up to be her! (Or, more specifically, grow up to be Lara Croft.) I'm sure you have your reasons, though; what are they?

LT: Whatever.
