deeper and deeper
saw two movies today :-) can't sleep, so after watching a movie in the theater, watched another one at home.
my friend nat picked me up at home to watch fantastic four
it's not one of 'em deep and dark stories like x-men and batman. it's a movie that doesn't require too much thinking, so any idiot would enjoy this movie. well, good work there, they earned $56million to date almost double distributor fox expected. jessica alba was hot, hands down. she didn't wear her costume as often as she should though. and i thought the since-we-were-wearing-these-when-we-were-hit-by-so-so-storm explanation why them costumes work so well with their powers is kinda lame. but i guess it works to explain why human torch's costume doesn't burn and why invisible girl's go invisible with her. i like how they hinted why von doom's body was turning in some sort of a metallic alloy as hard as titanium and diamond (he was holding an engagement ring when the storm hit him). but that only confused me why invisible girl turns invisible. but i'm putting too much thought with this, like i said, this movie does not require much thinking. i love, LOVE, johnny's one liners. he is freaking funny :lol: "that's gross," "where are your ears?" "this is yours, that's mine," "is that a trick question" :lol:
segue to something deeper: hero
it was awesome. it's very... artsy. then again,quentin tarantino made this film, and i think that explains a lot with the movie's classy-ness. i do not understand why zhang ziyi is in the cover of the DVD, i'm guessing for marketability. she doesn't have a big role. don't get me wrong, i still love her and all that, i just don't think she should be on the cover. anyway, there are many story lines in the movie. well, there are not really story lines or subplots but rather narrations. and the way tarantino made these narrations different from one another (since there are different perspectives and points of view on the SAME events), he made color schemes! and i love them! i think he made four, if you do not count the first scene where the nameless hero (jet li) killed sky (what a name...). then there's the red story line where the nameless hero killed falling snow who killed broken sword and moon. the blue story line where the emperor finds out about the nameless hero's plan. the white story line where the nameless hero confides the real score. and the the green story line (which is within the white story line) where falling snow and broken sword first met.
so whether you are into thought-provoking movies, or just wanna suffice your visual-hunger, i recommend both :-)
