I intend to see Casino Royale soon at the cinemas. Movies I've watched recently are:
X3: Last Stand. I love the X-men universe, and the 3rd film is decent. It is mostly centered around violence and explosions, but has a decent enough plot running through. I did find some rather contradictory parts of the plot, but I won't say so I don't spoil it for thsoe who haven't seen it. the main premise of the plot is that a mutant 'cure' has been developed to remove mutant powers, and is offered to mutantkind as a voluntary procedure. Magneto is wanting to destroy it, the X-Men trying to stop him. There are a gfew good battle scenes and several big surprises or plot twists, but the film seems to be lacking in some areas. it has the battle scenes, but most of them seem to lack something compared to the 2 previous films. The ending however is good, if predictable, however *Semi-Spoilers*
right at the very end there are 2 massive shocks that totally change your viewpoint of the film. It is a good movie, and a good culmination of the film series, yet left open for possible sequels, although not without radical differences to the earlier parts of the franchise.
And just Tuesday night, I saw on a DVD borrowed from a parent's friend:
Secret Window. It is an interesting film to say the least, and again shows Johnny Depp's ability to play a variety of unusual roles ,despite there being moments during his portrayal of his character herethat are reminiscent of other roles, such as Jack Sparrow from Pirates of The Caribbean. I can't say anythingabotu the plot without spoiling it, but needless to say it is an involving story. There is a sense of mystery running through it, although after 3/4 of the way through the film the plotline starts to cease branching off and follow a route whose outcome can be worked out in advance. In other words, you can predict the ending. However the ending is still gripping, as well as a rather tense and ultimately bloody culmination. A good movie, but the fact that not only does the ending become somewhat predictable, as well as the fact that it can't really be watched twice considering the film's key element is the mystery aspect, means that it could be considered to have a short shelf-life. Fo those who don't mind watching mystery movies more than once, I'd rcommend it, but if you want to be surprised and gripped by it, just the 1 viewing is enough. The mystery element is decent, but not strong enough to be watched more than once. a good film, but I'd only recommend rental due to the 1-view-and-its-over nature of the genre.
