Movie Reviews In Brief
Monday, 2007 December 17 - 8:57 pm
"I Am Legend". Um, I saw this movie before; it was called "28 Days Later". If not for Will Smith, this might have gone directly to DVD. There are as many plot holes as there are "scare you with loud noises" moments. 2.0 / 5

"Pan's Labyrinth". A beautiful, complex fairy tale woven into a story about the Spanish civil war. It's downright poetic. Ivana Baquero is brilliant. Only downside: I was turned off by some gratuitously gory scenes. 4.0 / 5

"Apocalypto". Interesting premise, but also gratuitously gory. At its core, the plot was fairly simple; I expected a bigger story, something more epic. A lot of action; not much character development. 2.5 / 5

"Wild Hogs". A cute middle-age-crisis movie; kind of a teen movie for the 40-something set. Worth seeing once; not worth seeing again. 2.5 / 5

I Am Legend: Felt the same way at times about the whole "28 Days Later" thing. Tried to zone it out though, and from a purely 'wanting to be entertained' perspective, I enjoyed the movie.

Pan's Labrynth: Different than what I had in mind, wasn't really sure what to expect, but as a result, enjoyed it. I wanted to grab the little girl by the neck and repeatedly smash a bottle on her face when she decided to eat the grape, though...

Apocalypto: Felt same way here, as well. Was expecting something a little more epic. The end of the movie I felt like I was watching "Last of the Mohicans" meets "Predator," except, watching all the scenes that they cut out of those movies because they weren't that good.

Wild Hogs: I haven't seen this movie, but I've played it out over and over in my head, and I've got to be honest with you...it scares the living crap out of me.
