S’Modest Mouse, for those not in the know.
Saw three movies for the first time this weekend … Shrek, Shakespeare in Love, and Equilibrium.
Shrek was funny. Duh.
Shakespeare in Love totally clocked me over the head. I was expecting some hideous love story with historical undertones, but it’s actually very very good. I’d … surprisingly … recommend it. If you’re looking for a movie with a good story.
Equilibrium was pretty cool, but some of the critics said things like “Forget the Matrix”, and … er, no, it’s not quite the Matrix. The action scenes are pretty cool, although they don’t have quite the … cleanliness? … that the fight scenes in the Matrix had (especially speaking of the first movie here). The plot was … well, it was Nineteen Eighty-Four, by George Orwell. It took the relevant parts practically straight out of the book – Father, Prozium, the Grammaton Clerics, are all a few of the themes that Equilibrium adapts. It’s a cool movie, though … worth renting, for sure.
Er, the comic. All I’ll say is that I’m no Hawk. -_-;;
