    Hi!

    My son and I saw The Purge.

    It's supposed to be a *thriller/horror* movie and it was. But, I saw it through a psychological/sociological lens. Very thought provoking.

    If anyone watches it, let me know what you thought.

    Peace.

    Georgia Rule. The movie was on TV last night, so I decided to watch it. Well, it was not that bad. I do not like Lindsay Lohan, but as an actress she was rather good back then.

    Adequate SF alien contact movie. Depressing and inadequate Superman. The movie proclaimed itself to be a reboot but was more like a revisit as it expected us to be familiar with the characters of this iteration without reintroducing the characters. As a result I never developed any emotional connections to any of the characters except for Kevin Costner who was fantastic. Even Smallville and Metropolis never had their geography or sense of being communities developed.

    I could care less if Superman has to kill but this movie took the easy way out when other options are available. The last 40 minutes were tonally deaf in portraying Superman as a hero. It also never established that the world needed him. In fact the opposite was true. The world was doing fine until he brought the crisis to earth by alerting Zod to his presence. Then the action scenes become destruction porn - which quickly became boring - without taking any time to show Superman reacting to all the death and destruction around him.

    To top off the tone deafness of the final sequences immediately after all the destruction, an apparently oblivious Superman and Lois go to a kiss. Seriously? Would it have hurt to cut down on the 40 minutes of destruction and show Superman in a rescue and rebuilding montage?

    Man of Steel brings Superman down to our level. The other Superman movies inspire us to reach to his level.

    As Superman Birthright writer, Mark Waid said - Superman was not designed to fail the Kobayashi Maru.

    Technically the movie was well done but the story is a joyless and diminished retelling of the Superman mythos.

    5 out of 10.

    And I leave it to this video review which sums it up perfectly for me:

    I saw the Lone Ranger this weekend. It's getting terrible reviews but I liked it. Though it was WAY too long.

    We had a lot of rain over the long holiday weekend so I managed to see The Lone Ranger...I agree with Shasta on it. I thought it was a entertaining but a little long. Also, I saw World War Z....I liked it too. Different take on the zombie thing which was cool.

    Managed to see The Lone Ranger this weekend. I really enjoyed the film. I'll agree with Shasta and Cowboy about it being too long

    Saw The Impossible with Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor. The tsunami shots were amazing.
