Everyone’s A Critic

This week I’ve been a lot at the movies, at least a lot compared to how often I usually go. I’ve seen two movies, the Norwegian Sinus and Peter Jackson’s King Kong.

The Sinus tag line is “Sex, Violence, Drugs”, which sort of sets the scene. But it’s mostly drugs, really, not that much sex and violence, and not a single explosion. Despite the lack of explosions, Sinus was entertaining and recommendable low-low budget movie.

King Kong was what I expected it to be: Peter Jackson with access to even more computer power and miniatures than he had in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Jackson’s main flaw is that the movie lasts for ever. Now, I’m no movie director, producer - nor film critic for that matter - but I’m pretty sure he could’ve cut it down by at least thirty minutes and had an ever better movie. Still, King Kong is highly recommended, prepare for some very impressive computer graphics.

That’s all for now. Now I’m heading out to by myself a new shirt because I’m getting so big from exercising, I ripped a hole in my favourite shirt last night. Or it could be because I’ve had it for three years. You decide. Tonight I’m watching people eat sheep’s heads. What is the world coming to?
