I really like Ryan Reynolds and that makes me feel so dirty. But seriously, he's great for deadpan laughs, he reminds me of Chevy Chase and Bill Murray though not quite as good as either. In any case, he took [b]Blade Trinity[/b] which like the rest of the blade movies always tend to be way to euro trashy and took a little of the seriousness out of it and made it a little more watchable. It's just an action flick with vampires after all, so they really don't need to take themselves that seriously. All in all a fun flick to catch round Halloween, more then just the typical horror faire. Nothing great, just fight scenes with bullets, swords and vampires.
So I'm finally trying to get around to watching all of Francis Ford Coppola's movies, and hopefully soon I'll be getting to
Stanley Kubricks. As part of this, I snagged [b]Apocalypse Now[/b] via the ol netflix connection. It's an absolutely crazy movie, and you can never ever predict what will end up happening next. The ending was amazing, and it's one of the most beautifully shot movies I've ever seen. It's hard to watch in some respects but at the same time I feel like I could watch it all the time. I don't really know what to say other then it's necessary for anyone and everyone to watch.
Now way back when, I think it must've been in the paper, but I read about a documentary called [b]Ghenghis Blues[/b], and I rember it supposedly being a great movie. I never actually even remembered entirely what it was about other then that the title sounded cool. But years and years later, I've finally seen it and it's just an absolutely amazing movies. It gives amazing insight into music, and culture and the world as a whole and is a great portrait of a lost blind blues musician who found a calling in a musical form over halfway around the globe from his home. It never gets slow and is always enlightening.
