WOTW

Yes, we went to see War of the Worlds last night, in spite of my rantings about a certain vitamin-eating asshat who stars in it. And it was nine bucks well spent. The special effects were incredible. At one point, a little too much time in a dark basement with a freaky Tim Robbins, and a bit too much alien in the second part of the movie where I'd personally rather have had more suspense and things busting up.

Tom, this is where you belong. You are the king of playing callous, good-looking men ripe for redemption at the hands of aliens that bust out of the earth. Rock that as many times as you want and leave the issue of drugs to the people with the medical degrees.

God, why did you do it??? You must not give in! It's like all the people who claimed they were going to do everything in their power to stop Bush, and then they didn't even vote on election day.

Okay, maybe it's not quite like that.

But you could have just gone to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I did!

I feel the shame, I do. How was CCF? I am so attached to the original...

altho' i haven't seen it, i feel i must point out, in defense of CCF, it is NOT a remake, just a film version of the novel. nor is it a musical. plus also, in unrelated events, i have short hair.

Betsy said...

Good point. Been thinking about you guys. Short? How does it feel?

CCF is pretty good actually. I recommend it. There were a few things that didn't quite work, but some really great stuff along the way. And not a single Cruise in the whole thing.

Cruiseless is a bonus. Critics should start mentioning that. "This film delicately does not have Tom Cruise in it to distract you from thinking about the actual movie."
