6/8 DVD Rundown
Yeah, I realize I’m almost a day late on this. I got a life, too, you know.
With Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley and a crap load of other great actors.
2010 has been a pretty disappointing year for movies thus far, but this one managed to meet my lofty expectations. I’ve got a theatrical review of it on this site, as well as my interpretation of the ending which I felt compelled to post after much discussion with my filmgoing friends. In short, I think it’s one of the few great films of the year. I know there are many who disagree with me on that. Regardless of your opinion on the film, I think it is one that needs to be seen AT LEAST twice. Watching it a second time offers a completely new experience, since you aren’t waiting for the “big twist.” You get to look for all the little hints that you didn’t pick up the first time around.
With John Travolta and Jonathan Rhys-Meyers.
We move from a film that has stayed with me for months to one that is almost instantly forgettable. I watched From Paris With Love over the weekend and I’ve already forgotten the plot of the movie. It has something to do with Travolta kicking a lot of ass and dropping a lot of f-bombs, which is reason enough to watch the movie if you’re into that sort of thing. It’s quite generic, featuring plenty of flashy camerawork from the director of Taken, but it’s a pretty fun 90-minute diversion.
I should have a review for Splice up either tonight or tomorrow, so stay tuned.
