Movies

Well, I saw Evolution and Tomb Raider today.

Here we go.

Evolution is horrible.
50% of the comedy is not funny. Dramatic comedic pauses don't work here. I probably could have heard a cricket in the theater every time they did one. I did enjoy that the girlfriend of the cop was the girl from CLERKS! Otherwise most of the comedy felt driven by someone who doesn't have a grasp on comedy... just trying to do everything that he or she was told was funny. Some of it was funny though... just not enough. Ending thought, no. Don't waste your time or money.

Tomb Raider.
Good action. Its not Matrix, but it is good. Starts off solid. Laura has Al Gore for a butler in the movie unlike the old geezer in the video game. Good humor. Laura's breasts don't physically move until about 30 minutes into the flick.... even when jumping around and jogging down staris... hmmmm.... For some reason I thought uhhh, Angelina's lips are scary, I didn't like so many damn close ups of them... they look disfigured or something. Keeping track of ammo, and reloading was enforced - may have been one movie clip in the film (at the beginning she unloads a lot I believe on her last clip). Sets don't always look real, but that is fine it seems, looks a lot like the game and that is in some ways better. I thought there was better music in the movie, so right now I'm really let down by the soundtrack... blarg.... Ending thought, yup. Good flick to watch for the fun of it.

Re:

I've been kinda busy and sick... and stuff as of late. Switching shifts, getting a bunch of new toys, and being sick.... blah... I'm almost done being sick though... School starts today. I'm going to get some breakfast this morning and catch some z's. I collapsed around 930pm... and slept till about 3am. Got up and watched Cast Away. Pretty good movie...
