Movie weekend

I saw six movies this week­end…

In chrono­log­i­cal order:

Fan­tas­tic Four–not so fan­tas­tic.
Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy–enjoyed it about as much as the first time I saw it (which is to say, a fair amount).
Water–Heart-wrench­ing and very well done.
Every­thing Is Illu­mi­nat­ed–I want to see this again. By turns hilar­i­ous and poignant.
Under­world Evo­lu­tion–Like my friend said, they didn’t do any­thing new this time out, but the cos­tume was still fan­tas­tic.
Equi­lib­ri­um–It real­ly, real­ly wants to be The Matrix, but it isn’t quite.

More details on a cou­ple of these lat­er. Right now I’m tired. G’night.

  1. I liked the sto­ry of Equi­lib­ri­um and would have enjoyed it more with a lit­tle stronger fund­ing. That said I thought Chris­t­ian Bale was fan­tas­tic in it. James Lileks first turned me on to it.

  2. The sto­ry was inter­est­ing, and I agree that Chris­t­ian Bale played the role well, but there was just some­thing miss­ing from it, for me. Maybe it was just a ques­tion of lack of mon­ey. It prob­a­bly didn’t help that my wife was watch­ing with me, and we were kind of mak­ing Mys­tery Sci­ence The­ater 3000 snarky com­ments…
