Tuesday Movie Roundup #2

The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift – I can’t recall the last time I’ve seen so many cheesy cliches strung together. This movie was fantastic and is easily the best of the three Fast and Furious movies. More racing and less half-assed cop story to get in the way.

Elizabethtown – It started off slow and a little awkward and I didn’t much care what was going on. After a little while though I felt myself sucked in by the characters and they held me there until the very end.

Vanilla Sky – I wasn’t trying for a Cameron Crowe fest but I’m not complaining. Again, great characters, and a fun story for them to run around in. The imdb lists 4 theories about what is going on and I think I have to go with the basic explanation that the movie presents out front.

The Greatest Game Ever Played – Why do I like golf movies when I don’t like golf? I don’t know but this is another golf movie that I really like. One thing I have to say though is that the CG ladybug is just wrong! I think it’s one of the worst examples of bad gratuitous CG ever. The CG ball and flying effects didn’t distract from the movie and helped make the game seem more action oriented. Oh yeah, based on a true story.
