It's kind of funny how the critics have completely and utterly crucified M. Night over The Last Fartbender, er, I mean, Airbender. I have next to no interest in the film. So, sadly, this will be the rare July 4th weekend without a trip to the theater (a crime in my estimation).
From Netflix is the B&W German film The White Ribbon. I've heard nothing but tremendous stuff.
I watched the Robert Pattinson melodrama Remember Me earlier this week. A solid film, better than I expected after reading some terrible reviews. Pattinson has decent chops as an actor but it was Lost's Emilie de Ravin who stole the film. The finale was EXTREMELY bold, and I'm still wrestling with it a bit from a decision-making P.O.V., but overall, I liked the film. Director Allen Coulter showed some style chops and any movie benefits from having Chris Cooper in its ensemble. Also, Pierce Brosnan showed that he plays a great a-hole. I thought the film veered into too-easy sentimentality at times, but it's the sort of film that wears its heart on its sleeve -- unabashed melodrama. In this cinematic day and age you sort of have to respect that.
The Wolfman, Edge of Darkness, The Killer Inside Me, and Ondine are all available On Demand. Would love to check at least one of those out over the long weekend...
