30 Days of Night...

On Sunday we watched 30 Days of Night. It was pretty good. I'm glad I went to it. I give it 4 1/2 stars out of five.

30 Days of Night is based on a graphic novel. The premise is that in Barrel, Alaska, where there are thirty days of night in the middle of the winter, during which the sun doesn't rise, vampires come. It's an interesting concept, and I think they pulled it off well. Also, the vampires in it were very interesting, different from most movie vampires. I liked how they were done. Also, the special effects were done well in a way that wasn't over the top and seemed real, and the acting was very good in my opinion. There were a lot of jump scenes, and points where you weren't quite sure what was happening (in a good way), but it wasn't too over the top in my opinion. There was a lot of blood and some graphic parts, though. I loved the end, but it isn't an ending for everyone.

I think my sister (hint, hint) who lives in Anchorage (hint, hint) should watch the movie.

Marie Antoinette - Barf

“Marie Antoinette”, left me fielding requests from my ears and brain to be strapped to excessive levels of dynamite and ignited. Written and directed by Sofia Coppola, “Marie Antionette” gives us another example of why it is rarely a good idea to have all of the ideas coming from one person.

The Aviator (2004)

Howard, there's a rather alarming mountain heading our way.

Minus a few good scenes & a stellar cast, this is nothing more than an overblown epic biopic of an eccentric. Seriously, I have to admit that I kinda checked out at certain points in the movie, & that's very odd for me. Being that I've only seen two of the movies that were nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the Oscars, I can't really discern whether or not Blanchett deserved her win for her Hepburn portrayal. In my opinion, it's a little better than an average movie with outstanding performances, that suffers for being far too long. 2.5 outta 5.
