"Inside Man"

(Keep in mind that my opinion of a movie is pretty much worthless until I see it with captioning, because in the theater, I'm only getting about 50% of the dialogue, and am guessing the rest based on body language and other visual clues. Hence, I hesitate to call this a "review.")

First of all, I still refuse to believe that Captain von Trapp and General Chang are the same guy. My theory is there are two totally different actors named Christopher Plummer. (I have a similar theory about Brian Keith, because the dad in The Parent Trap and the horrible bearded man in The Rare Breed cannot possibly be the same guy.)

Anyway, my overall impression of Inside Man was that it was really predictable. Now, I don't mind predictability in and of itself. I mean, we all watch Princess Bride knowing Westley and Buttercup will end up together, Inigo will kill Count Rugen, and Prince Humperdinck will get his just deserts. But when a "suspense" movie is so frickin' predictable that I can tell everything that's going to happen within the first 15 minutes of the movie, and that's with comprehending only 50% of the spoken dialogue (a good 20% of which was the f word), that's just ridiculous.

I thought the plot was sort of cool, but I spent the majority of the movie wishing they would hurry up and get to the point.

So, go see it, or not. It's up to you.


On a completely different note: Why am I the only person who thought The Notebook sucked ass?

I strenously assure you that you are not, in fact, the only person who thought The Notebook sucked ass.

And Nicholas Sparks needs to develop senile dementia as soon as possible.

Princess Bride... Yeah Baby!
Me and the Grandkids, oops, forgot Sobek (grammar Nazi) was watching.

I mean My Grandkids and I, think that movie kicks ass.

Yay Sobek, it's not just me! *happy dance*

I can't imagine not loving Princess Bride...the quotability factor alone catapults it to classic status. The book is good, too.

You keep using this word "review". I do not think it means what you think it means".

I think the difference between you and most people who agree with your general sentiment that The Notebook sucked ass is that you apparently actually saw The Notebook. Most of that's movie viewers knew who Nicholas Sparks was and--worse yet--wanted to see a film based on one of his books.

I'd never heard of Nicholas Sparks and got tricked into watching it. And it sucked. The romance was entirely unconvincing - two stupid kids hook up, fight a lot, make out a lot, and then melodramatize their situation until they come to believe they love each other, despite a complete and utter lack of any commonality.

As far as I'm concerned, a meeting of the minds is the only kind of romance worth exploring.
