Nightmare Night Applejack

Movie #3: Watchmen

Watchmen


My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I watches the Watchmen and it was pretty damn awesome. I see they kept the "graphic" part of the graphic novel. Superheroes as normal people with fucked up lives? Brilliant. Oh, and re blue dong: it did not distract me. It's a really engaging story and even though it is a bit disjointed in places, it all ends up fitting together well. I'd give it 4/5, but I don't want to have nerd-rage wreaked upon me. ;)

Movie #4: Avatar (3D)

Tonight I went and saw Avatar with snakewich. This was my second time seeing it. I thought I'd posted about it, but no. First time was from the second row, which is way to close most of the time, but definitely diminishes the 3D experience.

This movie is really visually beautiful. Check out this featurette done in the style of the "Planet Earth" series, and narrated by Sigourney Weaver.

Here's a featurette about the making of the film, the motion capture and performance capture techniques.

It's really just a pleasure to watch.
