So I haven't blogged in a while and suddenly realized that I'm wasting this blog so I'm back. Update on my life-I have two weeks left in school and a month before I go to DC. Now on to more subjects, yallah:
I was reading up on some reviews for the latest X-Men movie and for the Da Vinci Code and was unimpressed by what the two movies have to offer. To start off, X-Men still seems stuck on the one problem it has had since the first movie: too many characters and not enough development. Granted there is a good amount of development on its main characters, Wolverine, but it brushes off on those who are quite important in the comics, Cyclops. I read that in the latest movie Angel is wasted along with a couple of other new characters; now if wasting a character isn't annoying enough, they go and put pictures of Angel on their advertisements, I hate when they do that. That's just going to lead to disappointment.
Da Vinci Code seems like a movie that was quickly put together in order to take advantage on the popularity of the book (aka make money) but without giving too much thought into the actual story. Same old same old, Hollywood making crap movies to make money (summer blockbuster). Ok ok I seem like a snob now so I'll concede... I haven't seen either film so I am not qualified to comment, so take my review with a grain of salt (since I have so many people reading my blog). However, I wouldn't be surprised if I go see the movies and I'm right (I'll see X-Men). So for all the hate mail (er.. hate comments) that I will or will not get, save it :).
