The Watch

That movie with Stiller, Jonah Hill, Vince Vaughn as neighborhood watch people.

Color me surprised. This movie definitely exceeded my somewhat low expectations. A lot more action than I expected and laughter came more than I thought it would.

It is funny though that you can literally take Vaughn out of any of his movies in the last 13 years and replace him in another one of his movies and everything will seem just normal.

Saw Warm Bodies last night. It was pretty good. I really liked the different take on the zombie theme and it had some good laughs.

Re: What movies have you seen recently?

Now You See Me

I was banking on seeing this with a previous "date," but we had too many scheduling conflicts. We finally landed on yesterday to see it.

It's flashy. The direction has more personality than the characters. Actually, I take that back. The characters had plenty of room for personality, but they all had a backseat to the stylizing of the film. There was so little substance and character development, and it kind of made for a "for what reason are things happening?" kind of outlook on things.

It started off pretty sweet. Some mystery, some nuance, and some strong hype. Things kind of deadened out after the first act though, and although there weren't contrivances, moments certainly appeared to happen arbitrarily (for the sake of something other than the progressive storyline).

It sounds like I'm trashing the film, but I'm actually still just trying to wrap my head around it. Just like magic, it really wasn't that complex, but simply misdirecting. I did not expect to see the film I just saw, and I'm trying to adjust and keep pace with that. However, I think it was good enough for a once-over only. I was really looking forward to see this film based on people's comments about the trailers (I'm really glad I was able to avoid everything for this long and not see a thing, because looking at the trailers afterward made me realize how much I would have seen), but I guess it didn't amount to all that it was perhaps cracked up to be, star-studded cast or not.

It had nice visual flair, though. Choreography, camera movement, flashes and tones at least kept you engaged on any level. Don't get me wrong, the story was incredibly engaging. I just think the focus was on the wrong characters and set pieces at too many times. Like... somebody who pitched the idea of this film had a great idea, but the screenwriter chose to pick random popular film plot ideas by throwing darts on a board, including the ending.
