On Movies

"Children of Men" - I just saw this movie last night, and I highly recommend it. In fact, when I get back to Pittsburgh I would be willing to go see it with anyone who is interested. It is hard to describe why I enjoy this movie so much. One of the reasons is that it is realistic. As realistic as a science fiction movie set in 2027 can be. I think (and I have not had this confirmed by any other source) that the cinematography is highly inspired by the Iraqi war. There is humor, love, action, etc. Do yourself a favor and check it out.

"Epic Movie" - Please, do not see this movie. I have not seen it. It hasn't even come out yet. But I am getting more and more fed up with this upcoming genre of film. Do your part. Stamp out movies that simply reenact scenes from popular movies but with a fart joke thrown in. If a movie is bad, mocking it is unnecessary. If a movie is good, what is the purpose of redoing it? As I write this, I am drunk and yet more than willing to endlessly debate the problems that this movie poses to our society.
