Film Marathon

We went to see Public Enemies first - Johnny Depp and Christian Bale. This film was great - thoroughly enjoyed it! It's a gangster flick of fairly significant length (2.5 hrs) and it was moving. Nice. Did I mention before at all that I LOVE JOHNNY DEPP?

Our second film was Transformers 2 Revenge of the Fallen. This was a complete pile of crap which I will never ever sit through again. It is also TOO LONG at 2.5hrs of out and out lousiness. It has a very basic plot that isn't well planned or developed. There are ridiculous situations throughout. All the women are HOT but have no personalities. Good things about it.... you get to see the yellow autobot again - he's a lovely robot. Otherwise I'm struggling.

Finally we saw THE BLUES BROTHERS! In the cinema. Yey. The cinema was sold out and the air conditioning appears not to work for that number of people. So the smelly guy next to us (who preempted every line of the film) got smellier and smellier as the movie went on. Luckily the film was funny enough that we didn't notice much.

Leaving after Transformers would have been disappointing but three films in one day is one too many - next time I'll stick to a doubler at the most.

I think you wrote your movie review beautifully :) But I do understand what you mean - ever since my daughter made her comments about being positive it has changed my attitude or at least how I voice my opinion.

When I heard that there was going to be a sequel to Transformers I said "Why?" Sounds like it wasn't much.

I would LOVE to have you be a part of Positive Day. It would mean a lot to my daughter as well.

My son loved Transformers 2 but no way would I have sat through it without doing it for him!

Don't think I have ever seen 3 films at the cinema - 2 is my maximum too!

I have never seen that many movies in a day! Brave of you to try it.

Blues Brothers was a great movie... I think 2 is more than enough in one day

I've only seen Blues Brothers on tv. It would be cool to see it in the theater, but not sitting next to smelly guy.
