Watched a lot of movies in the past few days.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
Pretty fun movie. Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow is awesome. Looking forward to the 3rd movie.
The DaVinci Code
Wasn't expecting much from this, since in my experience, book adaptations almost NEVER live up to the book. But it had been a while since I've read the book, so the movie was decent IMO. Tom Hank's hair was attrocious though. Basically, I think I kinda liked the movie because I had low expectations for it, lol.
Decent football movie. I just wish Hollywood would make more football movies that aren't inspirational. Sport movies can be other things besides feel-good or slapstick comedy, right?
I've always had a soft spot for Adam Sandler movies, but he either needs to go back to his Happy Gilmore days or go entirely to dramedies. Click wasn't as funny as I thought it could have been and actually got pretty serious at the end. Don't want to ruin it, but I didn't think an Adam Sandler movie would ever tug that hard on my heartstrings. A bit too long too, as the point of the movie repeated a couple times too often.
Mission Impossible 3
Tom Cruise ran around too much in this movie and the plot was nonexistent. How many high-level moles can an intelligence organization have anyways.
I thought this a decent movie, but I kinda wished Superman had more stuff to do besides fly around and fix minor things. I echo the sentiment someone brought up, how Warner Bros should have reinvented the franchise ala Batman Begins. Eh, I hope the next one picks up the action quotient and brings in a villain that Superman can pound. Routh does a nice Christopher Reeve impression, but he needs a haircut for the next one and the writers need to think up some scenes where Superman does more than speak in monotone.
Medium budget horror zombie flick. Had some funny moments, and a decent amount of gore, if you're into that kind of stuff. Worth a rental for anyone who likes horror with a bit of dark humor thrown in, like Shaun of the Dead.
