Sad to see this franchise come to an end but it was nice to see all the actors who made the saga the blockbuster it has been for the past four years recognized. I think the director did well with what he had to work with since Meyers ending was a huge letdown for me and I'm guessing many other fans. I would have preferred the novel ending with an actual battle with the Volturi even if it meant the Cullens being slaughtered because that's what everything was leading up to. Anyway, I liked how the movie showed an alternate ending and in a way gave readers the battle that they craved.
Liking Twilight, is this some kind of gimmick you're doing?
I heard the last Twilight movie has a long battle scene that turns out to be a dream. I would be very pissed off if I paid to see that.
Last movie I watched was Prometheus. Great movie. I felt uncomfortable in some scenes. Whole movie is beautiful to watch. It felt like Ridley Scott was just taking a huge shit all over Avatar.
Someone in the theater yelled "bullshit" once it was revealed that the battle scene hadn't actually taken place but the director had to portray it that way in order to stay true to the novel. For a moment I felt a bit cheated that the Volturi and Cullens hadn't actually fought but then I realized that there was no other way the director could have ended the movie without giving it a completely different ending from the novel. Meyers should have ended her novel with a battle scene since everything in the novel was building up to that final showdown. I think she avoids it because she wanted the series to have a happy ending and in her mind that could only happen if no war started since the Volturi could easily destroy the Cullens and the werewolf pack.
Alphaville (Godard, 1965)
Brilliant sci-fi noir film. Great/important themes that are just as relevant today as they were back then. Amazingly shot and edited (as with all Godard films), a great performance from Karina and really enjoyable. You can see the influence this had on the genre, but I'd go as far as to say this is probably one of the best sci-fi movies ever made. Put Godard behind the camera and it becomes so much more than just science fiction.9.5/10
Location: highway jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive
Re: What was the last movie you watched?
^ Pretentious Fuck...
The Living Daylights
Timothy Dalton James Bond flick. Cold war ensues. Dalton gets a lot of flack for his Bond movies being too serious (haven;t seen License to Kill yet) but i'd rather that the the super campy Austin Powers bullshit of the Moore movies. Enjoyable stuff, plot was halfway believable but not an amazing movie. Thought Dalton was good, saw a nipple which surprised me concidering Bond movies are notorious for teasing but not actually showing nudity. 7/10
