Ten random things: May 30

Ten movies I've seen recently:

  1. Blood Diamond
  2. Stranger Than Fiction
  3. Waitress
  4. Spider-Man 3
  5. Mrs. Henderson Presents
  6. Meet the Robinsons
  7. Wedding Crashers Uncorked Edition
  8. Children of Men
  9. Welcome to Mooseport
  10. Fever Pitch

I saw Spider-Man 3 yesterday, and boy was it a big disappointment. I don't know that I'd go so far as to call it bad, and I've certainly seen worse comic book films (Batman and Robin and Daredevil spring to mind), but it was several orders of magnitude worse than the first two. And messing around with Spidey's origin story is just stupid. Sam Raimi should have known better.

Now, Welcome to Mooseport... that was a bad movie. Bad bad bad bad bad bad bad. Even the director's commentary was bad. If this goes down n history as Gene Hackman's last film, I'll be very disappointed.
