What Movies Have You Seen Lately?

I don't think CGI enhancements to physical performaces by human actors constitutes animation.
I agree.

I saw Avatar about two weeks after release. My opinion: Fabulous from a technological standpoint, but terribly disappointing as a movie, overall. I was expecting a much better story from Cameron. Weak story overall, and pathetic plot and character development.

We went and saw Ice Age 3 at the outdoor cinema last night. Apart from the fact it was a little cool, and we were a bit concerned that the inflatable screen was going to blow away, it was a very pleasant way to spent a summer evening.

Absolutely loved Temple Grandin on HBO last night. My thoughts:

El Mariachi and Desperado

I didn't finish EM, but my husband liked it in spite of the subtitles (that's a huge thing for him). Desperado was good if you like shoot 'em ups. We'll be getting the third one this week I think.

"Desperado" is a fun movie, and Antonio Banderas, Mamma Mia!

Lovely Bones. Started well but went badly downhill due to CGI overkill. :(

The OM has been rewatching the second Star Wars trilogy on Blu-Ray. No matter how blu the ray it can't make a silk purse out of a pile of doo doo. ;)
