Been watching a lot of DVD movies lately. Besides the fact I don’t currently have DSTV, the options are BTV and DeadBC, and I can only watch BTV on Thursday nights. West Wing, baby. ZBC? Never – at least not till the football season starts.
Anyway, back to the movies; when was the last time a movie really grabbed you? I’m talking Matrix-style gripping, Sharon-Stone-crossing-her-legs gripping, I-see-dead-fucking-people gripping! Cos recently, these flicks are all just one long blur.
Hang on – Pirates of the Carribean 2? Okay, not bad, I actually remember a few of the action sequences. Over the Hedge was hilarious, but not so….you know. There’s something missing from these movies lately, that extra bit of…oomph. You know, when a movie grabs you by the balls (or whatever your protruding bits), shakes you around and tosses you across the room like a rag doll. Like, wow, dude.
I’m holding out for Borat and Casino Royale, cos all the rest seems like, well, shit. Save me Hollywood.
