Movies reviews or some such...

I know why I am not a good writer. I don't plan ahead. I don't make time to prepare what is it I wanted to sa. I don't jot down points, or think about what I am writing. I just sit down and write. The problem is, if the thought is not developed I end up with a single undeveloped sentence and not much of the story to tell.

I don't have stars or thubms up images, I'll just write the first thing that comes to my head.

I watched two movies recently. One over the Netflix on my Wii, another one on DVD.

Law Abiding Citizen. Encapsulated review: What a waste of time.

What is the idea behind this movie? Law is not perfect, I would guess. There are a lot of things in this movie that don't make any sense. I won't go into the detail, some people might actually want to see it I guess. But why would a movie "to-catch-a-bad-guy" all of suddent turn into the race to disarm a bomb. Anyway, lots of things in this movie don't make more sense than let's try that, that would be cool. And I am sorry, Jamie Foxx cannot carry a wise DA role.

The Social Network. Encapsulated Review: Good movie. Watch it.

I don't know if the movie is Oscar material, but it's an interesting and fun flick. Granted there were some liberties taken with the actual Facebook creation and dialogoes and ideas, it's a movie and it neds to play on emotion. What I don't like is the idea that young internet enterprenuers are pictured as douchebags and assholes, not all of us are. It almost seems to be a staple stereotype these days. But, I enjoyed the movie and I would advise to watch it.

I don't want to brag of course :) True though, I have hardly made enough money to be considered a successful one.
