Fuddy Time

I no longer enjoy action movies.

The last vestige left me last night.

I was watching Expendibles 2 and it wasn't even fun to make fun of it.

I'd noticed that my liking of such movies was waning when I just stopped caring who would prevail in Wrath of the Titans.

All the pretty explosions and special effects simply can not make up for a lack of plot or interesting characters.  The latter sin is the most damning.

I've sat through and enjoyed a ton of movies with just the thinnest veneer of plot slapped on that had utterly fascinating characters with excellent acting performances.

I've noticed lately that several movies I really should have loved didn't even get me above "meh" enough to actually keep watching.  I love period pieces and especially those set in Elizabethan England.  Anonymous sure is pretty.  And I have yet to make it through the first hour.

Also, the wrong Scott jumped off the bridge.

  1. Two movies that stand out in my recent experience were Avengers, and SALT.

    If you haven't give Salt (the movie) a try. It's not the most cerebral movie ever, but it does pretty well for an action flick, and I enjoyed some of the character detail.
