recent movies

this is not going to be much of a post but i still thought i would put down a few thoughts concerning the movies i’ve seen with my family within the past week or so.

  • iron man – wow! what a great movie. one of the best super hero movies ever. tons of other people have said really good things concerning iron man and i can’t top them so i want even try. go read some real reviews and you’ll see that the movie is great.
  • prince caspian – not bad. i don’t think it was as good a rendition as the wardrobe was but it was still very true to the book (except for the kiss at the end) and that’s what was most important to me. reepicheep is amazing. he’s spot on for character but i would say his image should be a wee bit taller.
  • indiana jones and the kingdom of the crystal skull – crap! enough said.
  • spamalot – yes i know this is a play but it’s so incredible that i just needed to say something. we took the boys to see it in minneapolis. it was every bit as good as when we saw it in nyc. it’s what a comedy should be. we laughed the entire night.

  1. Not every movie comes my way, but I am certain Indiana Jones, Prince Caspian, and Iron Man will be playing in the theater here. I really have been interested in seeing them in that order. What’s wrong with Jones? (I’ve thought that if they ever wanted to go younger, that the guy who plays sawyer on LOST would be a good pick)

    PS. Answer my questions on your marathon post, please.

  2. Robert,
    I wish to respectfully disagree with you regarding the Indy movie. Granted it is not anyones idea of world class theater, but I have not been in a movie lately that the audience had so much “fun”. We went to see it this past weekend and enjoyed it. Sure it was corney, but it was fun. Don’t tell me you didn’t laugh at it or have all the Monty Python movies warped you.


  3. Finally, someone who agrees with me about Indiana Jones. It was definitely up to Indy par. You know when “The Mummy” came out people said, “Well, it was no Indiana Jones?” Well, this was no “The Mummy.”
