Just how many movies a week do you watch?
That's the question I get quite often. When not attending film festivals, my average usually is about two or three. This weekend was a definite exception. In between doing some sundry shopping and putting the cover on the pool, Andrea and I managed to take in all of these starting Friday evening and ending last night:
- PERFUME - THE STORY OF A MURDER
- 3:10 TO YUMA (2007)
- 3:10 TO YUMA (1957)
- RESIDENT EVIL (1)
- RESIDENT EVIL: APOCALYPSE
- JET LI'S FEARLESS
- THUNDERBOLT AND LIGHTFOOT
- THE FINAL CUT
- GHOSTS OF MARS
That was definitely an exceptional weekend, and not the rule.
I really enjoyed the remake of 3:10 TO YUMA. A lot of the dialog was identical to the original but the characters, especially that of Dan Evans (Christian Bale), were more fleshed-out. Bale continues to impress me as one of the finest actors working today and Russell Crowe isn't a slouch either.
