movies I forgot to mention
A future antique outside the Erlanger Showcase Cinema
I may have mentioned these in passing, but I didn't record any impressions.
In Her Shoes - Better than expected, and I can have really low expectations.
Wallace and Gromit - The CGI was terrible and choppy. Everything else was a hoot. Fun for all ages.
Batman Begins - Worth more than the two dollars I paid. Superhero brooding at its finest.
Primer - Fascinating even after the last bit where I got confused. Fascinating.
Narnia - Prettier than a Creed video, but somehow felt hollow. It'd be great if I was a 9 year old.
Harry Potter - I didn't pee myself. A little too deja vu. More lasers might have helped.
Jesus is Magic - This white hot jew's rollercoaster of snarfs ends at just the right time. My sides were hurting.
King Kong - Get the really large popcorn. Big screen fun even with Jack Black's eyebrows.

I'm so glad to see someone else has discovered Primer. Such a good, dense sci-fi film from a first time writer/dirrector/producer/actor. Shane Carruth wasn't even 30 yet when he finished it. I feel so behind, but hoepful I can still come into my own.

I feel completely the same about 'Kong' and 'Narnia'!
But I gotta ask, regarding 'Wallace & Gromit'... what CGI are you talking about?? I'm sure some was used here and there, but none that stuck out to me personally, so I'm curious! :)
(P.S. I don't remember where I got the link to your journal, as it's been in my bookmarks for awhile -- just so you don't see my name and start pondering if you know me from somewhere or something :P)
