Still enjoying our week-long unlimited Blockbuster pass.. those poor suckers really lost money on us, I tell ya!
Well, we watched Angels & Demons, and (500) Days of Summer the other night.
I've been trying to avoid writing any spoilers here in case any reader hasn't yet watched one of these movies but plans to, so with that in mind, here's my comments about Angels & Demons:
YEAH! WTF?! NOO!!! OH HELL NO!! HA! I KNEW IT! OH COME ON, DAMMIT! GRRRR! YAY!
That, in summary, is the movie. Beautiful cinematography -- master shots blending real life shots, built sets, and CGI goodness. Some predictability with the plot. Some twists. It's like.. National Treasure but with Theology crammed down your throat at every step. 'Nuff said.
(500) Days of Summer: This is a quasi-romantic comedy. NOT a love story. No! STOP! Do NOT IMDB, or Google, or Wikipedia it. Just don't. Go rent it, and watch it with no knowledge of what it's about, or even what the title means. It's quirky. It has many funny spots. It has some sad spots. I wish they would have developed the female character's personality and background better so you can understand her better, but overall I liked it. The one part, that has faux artsy-fartsy black and white subtitled films? Yeah that made me think of my brother Dan's preference for those types of movies and I laughed and laughed at the silliness.
And yes, OMG we traded these in and just got Julie & Julia, will prob watch that if not tonight than tomorrow night.
