Slew of movies

The grandparents have Robin this weekend, so we’ve been catching up on the DVR by watching some movies.

  • Blades of Glory: The DVR failed to record it, but claimed it was there. This may have been a secret blessing, but I’ll try recording it again this week.
  • Crank: Not a bad movie, especially if you looked at the cast (Jason Statham) and adjusted your expectations accordingly.
  • Children of Men: A decent movie, but depressing and bleak. And, for some reason, Clive Owen‘s character kept reminding me of Alan Rickman‘s Metatron from Dogma.
  • The Departed: Star studded cast, excellent cinematography, well-crafted script and plot. Great movie in general. My only complaints would be: there are a couple loose ends left hanging at the end of the movie and Jack Nicholson was ad libbing too much, though I’m sure the ad libbed material improved the film.
  • Man of the Year: Robin Williams, Christopher Walken and Lewis Black walk into a movie….And 2 hours later you are just glad it’s over. Not a terrible movie, but not worth paying to see either.

And, now back to your regularly scheduled March Madness.

  1. Crank was one of my favorite movies for 2007. Adjust your expectations and you get a movie that keeps you interested and laughing all the way through. I hear there’s going to be a Crank 2.
