Movie Night - May 14th, 2011

Movie night! Hazzaa! (no reason for that, just because.)

Doctor Who The Doctor's Wife
   Must have been expensive, that's for sure. Felt very Neil Gaiman, and less Doctor Who, not bad, just more his type of fantasy and imagination. As for comic writers i'd be even more curious what they would do with him, Grant Morrison or Alan Moore, but i could see what stories those two would write would give kids (and adults probably) nightmares. ;)

The Book of Eli
   Kind of sick of brown with a bit of brown and a bit more brown end of world fiction. While i get the motivation, it's far from realistic, people would clean at least a little, and even 30 years after Mt. St. Helens, life is back there. Even around Chernobyl there is life. As was said during the movie "Please tell me they don't just live in the desert." That's one of my problems with post apocalypse movies that don't go into what it was or affected, too vague of motivations, and more feeling of "they didn't do the research" about it, true or not it makes you doubt it more, and then the characters. Ah well.

Soul Survivors
   We didn't finish, got bored about half an hour into it...

Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)
   Shouldn't have made us bored or not afraid to sleep, almost put us to sleep actually. Ah well. If you are going to remake something, make it special, good, different, or worth watching.
