Ever scare yourself into awakening from your own breathing?
Its going to be a long day.
Tonight, however, I am going to see The Spirit and I hope its better than the last film I watched.
Had kind of a weekend at the movies, if you will. Seeing as its award season there are some pristine copies of films floating about the torrents, it makes life easy for a girl on a budget. I enjoyed all that I saw – Frost/Nixon, Milk, Grand Torino….hell Bedtime Stories was even cute. Yet I was so disappointed with The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, which had been my front runner, I was hyped to see it. I adored the short story.
First, its different than the short story and second, I expected more from this director. Although I must say the flashback sequences were great, but really the only memorable part of the film. Yes, it was sad. Yes, the acting was good (not great). But I felt it lagged and I found myself waiting for the climax so it would hurry things along and just end. Kind of like bad sex.
But I am curious (no pun intended) what you thought of it (if you’ve seen it)? Or any others I’ve mentioned.
What’s a film on your list that everyone must see?
