UPDATE _ Possible spoilers to Cloverfield in the comments!
Father's Day was a blur here. The boys are really too young to "get" it yet and The Girl is in Florida. We let Daddy sleep in and then he had presents and then a nap and then playtime and then I made him Country Fried Steak for dinner. That was about it. The Wingmen Of Mayhem were out for blood yesterday so it was hectic. But fun, I think.
We watched some movies this weekend and I feel the need to share my impressions.
First, I watched 28 Weeks Later. Eh. If you liked 28 Days Later then you will probably like this one. But, it was a little darker. Depressing at the end, to me. The funky camera angels were still there that made me a little off balance. I am glad I did not go to a theater to see this!
Next, we watched Cloverfield. Double eh. The concept was great. The actual movie.... totally glad I waited for DVD. The way the camera work was done did heighten the tension and your ability to empathize with the people but.... I was let down and very dissatisfied with the ending. Worth seeing for the uniqueness but.... eh.
We then rewatched Alien vs Predator and watched the second AVP, Requiem. I liked the original AVP, not the second so much. I actually fell asleep watching the second one. Of course, it WAS really late... but.... it was Alien vs Predator, folks! Action, gore, gunfire, screaming... and I fell asleep. sigh....
Anyway, I am in search of some great new movies that I may not have seen or been aware of. If you have watched any lately that just did it for you, let me know!
