Happy 4th, all my RT weeemens. Looking forward to golfing and fireworks.
A couple of quick reviews before I head out...
The Machinist: My kind of movie. Wonderfully eerie puzzle that falls perfectly into place at the end. All the strange little pieces suddenly make sense when the credits finally roll. And, ye gads Christian! Don't kill yourself for your craft, man! But, it was worth it ... 9/10 :fresh:
War of the Worlds: Faithful enough reimagining of H.G.'s classic novel with only one odd illogical move by the son half-way through. Eh? Anywho, I've heard people bitch about the end ... Whyfor? Made sense to me. But, with all said, the movie didn't impact me like it should have, it felt cold - a lot like many recent Spielberg movies (Minority Report, A.I., The Terminal). I may be unfairly holding Stevie to a higher standard, but you can do better! ... 7/10 :fresh:
Land of the Dead: Akward and ham-fisted with its politico. If not some chills (which I heard Romero wasn't going for), I at least expect more fun from my zombie movies. Dragged on like a sci-fi original movie. ... 5/10 :rotten:
