20/10/2010

My weekend watching:

Skyline: brilliant special effects but a story with more holes than my Dad's vest and characters you can't care about. If you've watched Independence Day, The Matrix and Cloverfield you've seen it already!

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1: Miserable as sin but not as much fun! Felt like an obvious lead-up to the last film. A filler like The Empire Strikes Back was a filler - can't be blamed for that though - Part 2 wouldn't be as cool as it's promising to be without it. Life is a narrative and sometimes the middle act needs to be a bit boring and mundane.

Predators and The Tournament on DVD, both marvellous in their own way. Predators was a astoundingly well-made homage to all the previous films and managed to make me forget all the other, less-well-made sequels to the original film. Whereas The Tournament was a non-stop, action-filled exercise in gorgeous sillyness! Excellent and worth a watch!
