Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw
I have two movies this time... I'll start with the garbage movie first.
1. Keeping The Faith starring Ben Stiller, Jenna Elfman (Dharma from Dharma and Greg), and Edward Norton
This movie was absolute garbage. It was a romantic comedy that wasn't funny at all. Just about the only thing that was funny about it was Ben Stiller's attempt to not look like complete shit next to Ed Norton. We all know Father Brian Finn should've got the girl. Life sucks.
Rating: 3/10 (Woulda been a 1, but Ed Norton's in it)
2. The Painted Veil starring Naomi Watts, Edward Norton, and a lot of cholera ridden chinese people.
Plot Summary: Noami Watts cheats on Ed Norton (yea, I couldn't believe it either) with some mad ugly guy named Charles Townsend. As a punishment, good ol' Ed (who goes by the name of Walter Fane) takes her to a cholera ridden village.
My Thoughts: If you happen to be a male chauvinist, you will love this movie. I swear, Naomi Watts' character gets owned about every three minutes, and you can see that Ed Norton is obviously light years smarter than this dumb ho. I was really enjoying the film until the ending which could've been so much better in my opinion, but it's still a solid film overall. Ed Norton plays a great role as usual.
Rating: 7/10 - Ending was lackluster at best, not enough dramatics to get truly impacted. The rest of the film was written rather well though. Solid acting by Norton and Watts. I'd love to tell you they have great on-screen chemistry, but that's not the case at all (you'd know what I mean if you saw this film).
