Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

So I finally did some catching-up with movies this weekend. I saw There Will Be Blood on Saturday and Into the Wild on Sunday.

There Will Be Blood was solid, but I didn't like it as much as I expected to.

Into The Wild, however, was outstanding. The way it builds and then the denouement (you like that itvnetop?!) is amazing. The movie was heartwarming, heartbreaking, uplifting and frightening all at the same time. This is one of those movies that stick in your mind for a long time after the movie. Definitely recommend it.

I just saw Black Snake Moan yesterday, I thought it was another good movie. Solid acting all around and nice storyline as well. Justin Timberlake did a pretty good job acting in it as well, when I saw his name was in the storyline I wasn't expecting much but he did a nice job all around.

I was a big fan of Into The Wild too. Great movie.

I plan on seeing it tomorrow night. I have heard some pretty mixed reviews (too much CGI for one) but I sort of feel obliged to see it. I mean I saw all the other ones. Raiders of the Lost Ark is actually the first movie I remember seeing in a theater.

Yes too much CGI for sure, and overall I just not impressed. This comes from a big Indiana Jones fan.

I agree that there was way too much CGI and that really annoyed me. Also, I didn't think that they developed the new characters enough.
It seemed to me like they were trying to hard to make it really action packed and that it took away from the actual story.
I feel like big Indy fans ought to see it just because but it was a bit disappointing.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

I sense it will be similar to Star Wars. Episodes 4-6 (Star Wars, Empire, Jedi) were fun action movies with good storylines. And everyone thought with improved special effects that Episodes 1-3 would be even better.

But they sacrificed character development for cool effects and it was like adding technicolor to a classic black and white show. It just didn't seem right.
