I watched 3 movies in the last three days that I couldn’t finish. Rather than write a whole review telling you about how I didn’t like them, I’ll just get it over with in one post.
A real yawn-fest independent, artsy type movie that’s supposed to make you feel sympathy for the hitman. I got about 10 minutes in and was extremely disinterested in the story. Good idea, but it’s been done before, and I’m burned out on independent movies for the time being.
A British version of Of Mice and Men in an urban setting. The retarded people are not that believable, and I did not feel sorry for the thuggish character. I also had no feelings towards the retarded couple. I assume that the male retard kills someone accidentally before the end of the movie, but that’s just a guess.
This one started out pretty good, with David Arquette looking and sounding a lot like Ryan Gosling. But everyone else in this movie was unimpressive and the plot was pretty predictable. Good try on Arquette’s part, but I only wanted about 20 minutes during lunch, and would rather watch something else next time I sit down. To be fair, I’m still a little bit curious to find out if he was a pedophile or just on a power trip, so I may watch more at a later date and give it a second try.
