I'll be going out of town for a few days and unfortunately will not be able to post on Friday (Maybe not even Monday) so I wanted to post something early. Please forgive the lack of write up. I've been busting my butt trying to get things situated with the wedding and well...I'm dry.
Watch this episode of Movie Magic (It's a really good one!) and after the weekend the movies will start up again I can talk to Rick about overhaul on the site and make it better than ever! I really appreciate your patience. Wish me luck :)
I am excited for Captain America. Not AS excited as I was for XMen First Class, but certainly more excited than I was for Thor. I'm excited to see Cap in his native 1940s. I'm excited to see the Howling Commandos (I'm a huge fan of WWII "Team" movies) and I'm excited that Director Joe Johnston is going back to his roots.
With Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 hitting theaters today, I will no doubt find myself at the cinema this weekend to view the conclusion of the series. As I was looking the film up on IMDB, I noticed it's runtime, a healthy two hours and ten minutes. A little longer than average and not that I mind. This got me thinking, however: if movies are getting longer (which I have no objection to) then why in the hell don't theaters bring back an intermission?
I've talked to some people lately that say they've been watching The Patriot in honor of our independence day. They've said that in these troubled times it reminds them of how our country started. I for one think that's a bit sad. I liked The Patriot okay when I saw it; but I've always thought of it as Braveheart Lite. British=Bad, Americans=Good. I think we can do better. Here are 10 other films that are better examples of the American character.
