Weekend Movie Review - Drive

Me and Roger Ebert are no longer friends. He gave this movie a 100 on Metacritic. Since we've been in sync lately, I trusted him. When I was leaving the theatre, a woman was asking everyone how they liked the movie. To my utter shock, all the men said they liked it. I thought, Really??? Did we see the same movie. 'Cuz sure, there was lots of blood and stuff, but during the interminable scenes between the stabbing and shooting, there were long, insufferable stretched of staring. Yes, that's right. No dialougue, just longing looks, questioning looks, stupid looks, bored looks, that just lingered to the point that I wanted to bang my head against the seat just for something interesting to do. And then the ending - utterly, horridly stupid. So that was my one word answer to the woman - it was the stupidest movie I've seen in a very long time. I can't beleive I was duped into paying money to see this. And I never realized there were so many senitive men out there who enjoy hours of longing looks broken up by much too infrequent bursts of grisly gunbattles. My rating - 2 1/2 out of five stars.

Oh wow. I do have a hard time with Ebert and his movie ratings. I don't think I want to see this one then.... not that it was on the list to see before hand.

We borrowed a movie from the neighbor and rented a redbox this weekend. Loved watching Fast Five! Really fun and full of action and fighting. Really a wonderful movie, like the rest of the series. The second movie we say was Transformers 3. It was okay. I think we should have watched this one first as Fast Five might have tainted our enjoyment levels.

Oh well. Good weekend though. Sorry you didn't like your movie though.
