The long, boring holiday weekend has only been good for one thing so far, and that is watching movies. Surprisingly, I’ve watched quite a few that I’ve never seen before.
I was a little reluctant to watch this beginning when I realized the main character was played by Jesse McCartney. Much to my surprise, he was great in it. His character was mysterious, every day he acted like a completely different person. You never knew what to expect. Elisabeth Harnois was the other main character, I had never heard of her and she did a decent job. The movie is worth seeing just to watch the ending. I suggest having a box of tissues around.
I’ve been waiting to see this movie for what seems like forever. I read the book very quickly, which is always a sure signthat I’ll HAVE to see the movie. Unfortunately, my work schedule didn’t permit me to see it in theaters. My roomate ended up buying it, and I’m glad she did because I’m going to watch it over and over again. The cast was wonderful. Not really who I would have expected after reading the book…I was super thrown off by who they picked to play Marcus. I have a love/hate relationship with John Krasinski, but after this movie it’s been pushed back to the love side a little more. He was hilarious and brilliant in it…big surprise. Obviously you can’t help but love Kate Hudson, Ginnifer Goodwin, and their amazing friendship.
I had every intention of watching 28 Days Later and 28 Weeks Later last night after a long day, but instead I watched the third movie that came in their 3-pack at Walmart. Movies like this usually just make me laugh. Actually, this was suspenseful, and actually had the scare-factor that I’m always looking for so desperately. Kiefer Sutherland played a man dedicated to his family and to the stopping of the demons in the mirrors. He was great.
My Soul to Take
That’s all I really have to say about this movie. The concept was kind of cool, but it was hard to be completely devoted to while watching and I feel like it’s just like every other movie of the sort. Watch it though, my roomates absolutely love it, so maybe I just have bad taste.
