The Island

Dude, this movie is so awesome! Why did I never see it before this??

In other news... my vacation is kinda-sorta over as the next three days will be partly or mostly taken up with seminars at my school. Tomorrow I have to be there from 8:30-3:00, which means I'll have to leave the house not too long after 7:00. Yech. On the upside, this thingy is supposed to give us information about getting a job, which is very good as I have - dramatic music, please - my first real job interview on the 30th! Eek!

That reminds me, I need to print out a copy of my resume before I go to bed. Which is going to be soon. Because leaving at 7:00... ew.

Seriously, though. Cool movie. Kind of Matrix mixed with Minority Report mixed with I, Robot, mixed with Logan's Run, mixed with Brave New World, mixed with The Sixth Day -- just a little, though, not the stupid parts. And lots of Ewan. Very nice.

That is a cool icon.

So long as you forget that Ewan McGregor is almost old enough to be Scarlett Johanssen's father. ;)

Have to catch up with that movie at some point as it does seem cool.
I'm sure you'll do great on that interview, which I will wish you more good luck for when it gets closer. =)
Never underestimate the power of Ewan to improve a movie. :) It got crap reviews, but I thought it was very entertaining.
Well, it depends. If it's something I really want to see, I totally ignore the critics. If I'm kinda interested in seeing it and 9 out of 10 reviewers think it's crap, I'll probably wait to rent it. If it's 50-50, I'll take a chance. And if it's a summery movie full of explosions and pointless chases and stuff, I'm so there anyway. The cute guy factor also is important. :)
Thank you! Everyone else I've spoken to absolutely hated the movie and/or thought it was one of the worst to come out in recent years.

I didn't think it was half-bad. :)
