Now Playing: Always Something There to Remind Me (Naked Eyes)
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.
