It's Monday here, and figured it was high time I did one of these posts. We haven't 'rented' a movie in such a long time that it's been a little difficult to do one of these posts. However, we rented a movie just the other day and had to write about it. I had seen a preview for it at some point in time and was interested, but I remembered that it was up for quite a few awards so I thought There Will Be Blood could be a good movie.
We really like Daniel Day-Lewis (minus the Gangs of New York) and had hopes for it. However, we should have thought of Gangs of New York when at the convenience store and left it behind! It was one of those movies that you keep telling yourself it has to get better, then it's over. Eric kept asking me where I thought the conflict would come in and I kept saying maybe it's a movie about inner conflict. Yep, that was pretty much it. It's about a man that digs oil for a living and basically how ruthless he is. That's the story. Oh, and the score to the movie is really annoying. It's a violin on just screeching the entire time. I hate that. So, if you see this movie at the rental sore and wonder if it's any good...just pass it up and pick up anything else (except Duece Bigalow: European Gigolo).
What have you seen recently and let me know if you'd suggest seeing it. Anything accessible from the internet is better for us!
