Recent Cinema Visits

December 16, 2008

(EDIT: I forgot about ‘The Day The Earth Stood Still’ remake lol. I saw that too. 4 movies in the last two weeks then hehe.)

As of late, I’ve been visiting the cinema WAY more than usual. Probably because of the close proximity of cinemas at tis moment in time. In the last 2 weeks, I’ve seen Madagascar 2, Inkheart and Changeling. My favourite out of the three has to be Inkheart. From the combo of Brendan Fraiser, Paul Bettany(that guy I always forget the name of and realise I recognise him… lol), Helen Mirren and more, it was never gonna be a bad movie. I enjoyed it immensely. But I think its sad that most kids who are the right age for this movie (anywhere between 4 and 13)won’t know half the myths and legends and fairy tales the things in the movie are based on… I mean really, how many kids know about Ali Baba and his 40 thieves? I was lucky cos I got ready fairy tales, myths, other stuff.

Madagascar I wrote about before. It was good, better than I expected.

And as for Changeling, it suprised me. I didn’t think I’d enjoy it, but I did. I didn’t keep track of how long it was, which is always an important point. If you keep checking the time, or wondering ‘how much longer?’ it’s not a great movie. I usually ruin this rule by thinking about the rule lol, I’ve been taught to analyse movies… damn Media Studies… My butt was fairly numb by the end… but I knew it was long before I went to see it… 2 hours 20 minutes… lol.

Much cinema! It’s nice because I get to see movies I wouldn’t usually go to see. Like Changeling. And Max Payne. And..*shudders*…Mirrors.
