Movie Roundup

Watched a bunch of movies lately, none recent blockbusters, so here's a quick line up of what I've seen.

xXx: Made when Vin Diesel was the up and coming name, and in no way a non-generic action flick.

Next: We do not need to see Nicholas Cage's "worried face" for that long. Silly premise that gets blown out of all proportion for an even more silly second half of the movie.

Tooth Fairy: There is no reason for this movie to exist. Frankly, there are many people who should be ashamed to be associated with this picture, starting with the entire British cast.

Daybreakers: Decent enough movie, although once again we are treated to "one good guy in evil organisation willing to help the underdogs". And the solution's a little too pat.

Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant: This movie so wants to be about Larten, but he's just not that interesting a character. Otherwise, it's just another "coming of age" pic.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind: A different way of telling a "rekindling love" story, but a "rekindling love" story nonetheless. And not the movie I thought it was... which means my idea is still a new one!

Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief: A fun movie, if not that deep. A somewhat pedestrian "coming of age", but enjoyable.
