The Island
Mood:  spacey
Now Playing: Always Something There to Remind Me (Naked Eyes)
Topic: Movies
So, went two weeks ago to see the island with Shreena, it starred Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson. The movie was pretty alright until a certain point (until he killed his original) and then it went positively downhill.

I liked the concept though of having clones to make parts for you or carry your kid to full term ... seems, really good - I might have invested in one of them if I had the money ... providing the company did exactly what they did ... don't tell me that these are real people and they exist.

Don't see why they couldn't make them brain-dead ... nevertheless the movie gave a weak reason but a reason nevertheless why you couldn't have them brain-dead: the chances of transplants increases when the person is healthy and moving etc.

I don't get the point of freeing the clones though ... well, I understand that 'they had to do it' ... it is a Hollywood movie ... so the nice chocolate ending must come, but what are the clones going to do now?? They don't have any jobs or homes ... how they're going to feed themselves?

Plus don't understand why it was so hard to kill Ewan McGregor (the clone) in the movies ... never mind in trying to kill him they must have killed a hundred people ... but guess they thought it was worth it. Anyway, the guy hunting them down, Djimon Hounsou, now that guy has presence ... I reckon on screen and off-screen as well. And for a guy who was a model ... he does pretty fine acting ... he was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for the movie 'In America' ... he was pretty good in that movie too ... I didn't know who he was at the time ... but seriously lots of presence ... not to mention a good pair of legs :).

Anyway, next Tuesday we (Alex, Farah and Adele) should be going to see the 'Pride and Prejudice' movie with Keira Knightley ... not sure if I'll enjoy it ... because nothing can beat the BBC version ... but I promise myself to go and watch it as a movie rather than an adaptation of my favorite book :). I'm going to try and persuade Shreena to let us go see 'Must Love Dogs' on Wednesday ... Amalia and Brandon said it was a good movie.

Meet the Fockers
Mood:  chatty
Now Playing: Mrs. Robinson (Simon and Garfunkel)
Topic: Movies
Went to see "Meet the Fockers" (can't believe I just wrote that name!) on Saturday with Anna-Lise and Tim. I've been having such a hard time with that "Fockers" word ... I can't bring myself to say it ... ok I did once ... to Luis ... but because his first language is not English ... I couldn't imply what it was! Angela can't see my hang-up over it ... but I tried telling her its because of Trinidad culture, that the 'F-word' is spelled sometimes with an 'o'. So, to me it is a bad, bad, bad word! But I guess some people have no problems saying the 'F-word' anyhow ... Luis says it fluently! Amalia said that in Trinidad they had to rename it "Meet the Parents II" - reckon big hullabulla because of the name ... especially us with our proprieties ...

Anyway, the movie itself was quite good ... very funny ... but they said it was 12A ... 12A!!! In which world ... there were too many sexual intonations ... at least 15 and over ...then again I might be stuck in the 1990s ratings still ... but no way in heck will I carry a kid of mine to see that at 12 ... had to have some serious editing. Owen Wilson also makes a guest appearance ... I completely forgot he was in the first one ... until I saw him again ... Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand made this movie funny ... Robert DeNiro and Ben Stiller just had their same roles extended a bit (which it should be). If it wasn't for the Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand dimension the movie would have fallen flat. Since it is almost the same things that get repeated in this sequel. What works for the movie though, is that the sequel was so far back, that you forgot most of it anyhow, so it was like looking at a brand new film :D!

Ocean's Twelve
Mood:  not sure
Now Playing: O mere sapno ke saudagar ?? (dil hai ke mamta nahin)
Topic: Movies
Went last night with Angela to watch Ocean's Twelve at Xscape ... Anna-Lise was suppose to go also, but she was getting observed in school next day - so she couldn't make it. I had nachos for snack!! Went out and splurged!

Ocean's Twelve was ok ... not as good as Ocean's Eleven in my opinion, because the intrigue is missing ... but it is funnier ... that seems to be following the pattern of sequels I've been seeing ... because I thought Bridget Jones the edge of reason was funnier but not as good as the first one either. So, I guess if you want comedy with some action then Ocean's Twelve is good ... but don't go in expecting a huge heist ... it will be a major disappointment. I loved Julia Roberts role in this one - I think that was what made it comedic more than anything ... and of course Matt Damon ... loved Matt Damon ... he was funny ... George Clooney and Brad Pitt were their usual selves ... Catherine Zeta-Jones ... I don't know what to say exactly ... she didn't leave much of an impact on me ... I can't seem to remember a scene that was enjoyable ... I think in this movie she was more like Julia Roberts in Ocean's Eleven ... but not quite there. I usually like Catherine ... so, finding out there is no scene that left an impact on me ... makes me feel a bit strange!
