Movies

Took the day off workouts today after I fell walking into my house yesterday. Somehow, I missed the step and ended up slamming my shoulder, knee, wrist and ankle into the brick as I fell in through the open door. (I took out the trash and on the way back inside got distracted by the pretty flowers that are still alive in my front yard. It’s been three months. That might be a record. That’s was I was thinking before I ended up on my back checking to make sure I could move everything, then once I figured out nothing was broken, looking around to make sure no one caught that stunning example of gracefulness.)
Soooooo since I wasn’t working out, and if I wasn’t working out, I definitely wasn’t cleaning house, I watched two of my Netflix DVDs.
Alice in Wonderland…AWESOME. Gorgeous movie, great soundtrack, nice message. I would own this one.
Departed…(If you haven’t watched and want to, don’t read any more. I’m giving away the end in the next sentence.

UGH! I spent almost THREE hours watching that incredible movie only to have everyone die in the end?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Martin Scorscese, you suck. I didn’t want the bad guy to walk away but good grief all the good guys had to die too? Mr. Supposedly Awesome Director, you need to check out The Magnificent Seven. That’s the way to end a movie. Kill some of the good guys off, make me cry even by making the good guys would-be bad guys if they were anywhere else and then make them heroes. OR how about The Professional? An assassin good guy who dies with the bad guys, sacrificing himself so the girl can get away. Don’t have the good guy die pointlessly, without even getting the chance to be a hero. AND what happened to the girl? You left her pregnant with a monster’s baby, knowing he’s a monster, and she works with the police. Like she wouldn’t tell the truth about the monster? You had so many chances to make this movie end with a bang that didn’t mean pointless deaths that ruined the movie. Instead you turned the girls in the movie into sniveling fools or skanky ho’s and killed everyone off except the cop who quit, who, could have been a hero, but instead is criminal now. The movie had amazing talent, and the end of the script WASTED that talent.
I know if a movie makes you feel, it’s accomplished its goal. Well, congratulations. I feel. I feel this movie sucks.And that stinks because I kind of loved it until the last 15 minutes.
