Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw
A Christmas Carol- a film about the classic Charles Dickens novel, about Ebenezer Scrooge and how ghosts visit him to make him appreciate life and Christmas. Featuring the voices of Jim Carrey (Yes Man), Gary Oldman (The Unborn), and Cary Elwes (Georgia Rule). Directed by the same guy who brought you The Polar Express. I think the animation in this film was spot on, and I enjoyed it because it was pretty much a faithful adaptation to the original work. Although I was expecting something on the level of The Polar Express, it didn't quite reach it. But all in all, a good film and the right way to kick in the holiday season.
The Box- a film about a couple who receive a box, in which if they push the button they receive one million dollars at the cost of a person's life. Starring Cameron Diaz (My Sister's Keeper), James Marsden (27 Dresses), and Frank Langella (Frost/Nixon). From the director of Donnie Darko and Southland Tales. I gotta say the trailer for this film is misleading, as it is a bizarre and weird film throughout. It didn't come as too much of a shock, seeing as Southland Tales made little to know sense to me. Not a bad film at all really, you just gotta suspend your beliefs a little bit. Seeing Cameron Diaz in a film is always a plus for me.
