Perks reminded me of Garden State but with high schoolers instead of people in their mid 20's. Yeah the trailer makes the film look totally different. It's not the best movie of the year, but worth a look.
I don't want to see Cloud Atlas becuase I don't want to see Tom Hanks and Halle Berry play six characters. I heard from some people that it was just okay.
I agree. Got the same emotional impact from Perks as I did with Garden State. I dealt with my own personal issues that they both hit close to home on.

IT had 6 stories going on simultaneously (different time periods but all being shown throughout the movie). A lot of the actors just put on wigs and makeup to play different characters in a different story. Hugo Weaving was a woman, Halle Berry played a white girl (and a black slave earlier), and a lot of the actors were made to look korean. But the defense argument is that they wanted the audience to be able to tell who the characters were and that their "embodiment" carried on throughout the years. something like that. It was cool.
Got to give it a download. I'm far too curious. Have to see it for myself.
Can't even say that, as much as I would love to give you the slightest of opinions, positive or negative. Not at least publicly.
What's wrong with Ms. Watson?
Understandable. Like I said, I'm already going to check it out. Hopefully in theaters a day or two after it opens.
She's no Portman. Although, she's not bad.
Watched The Dark Knight Rises atm. It's great. Nowhere near my love for The Dark Knight, but hey, still a success.
Spoiler for The Dark Knight Rises:
Called that swerve towards the end. Not the details behind it. Only the fact that Miranda would go heel. I really, really liked how it tied into Batman Begins. I wasn't expecting that to come into play. Gave it a more finality vibe. Didn't like how it made Bane come off as a second fiddle villian. I was fairly lukewarm on him during it. That voice was weird. I didn't expect it. Maybe my knowledge on Batman comics/cartoons seemed to block out that Bane sounds like an old world philosopher in a massive body. And his death was so sudden, it confirms my fact that he wasn't as big of a deal as Miranda turned out to be. Funny how that works. LOVED the ending. Best part of the film. I now fully understand more as to why Joseph Gordon-Levitt is rumored to play Batman in the Justice League movie. I'm so DOWN for that.
Not from Variety. Pretty much says that Cruise is incredibly miscast, and not for his height.
And Cast Away rules.
Well he is. Jack Reacher is an awesome character who was created with guys like Bronson and Eastwood in mind. forget the fact Cruise is literally half the size Reacher is because lets face it no A-Listers in Hollywood are that size (unless you want to count the Rock as one lol), but Cruise just isn't a stoic badass like the character should be. But the source material (that book especially) is pretty good so I have hope.
Ryan Hurst of SoA would make a pretty great Reacher but hes not a big name.
