Awesome? Yes. As good as the first? Probably not, but don't let that stop you.
After it was over, I had to walk around Toys R Us for a half-hour in order to unwind. It didn't really help. Between this and Children of Men, I have very little hope for the future of humankind. Screw YOU, the British. Maybe 28 Months Later can tie the zombie world and the can't-have-babies world into the most depressing movie OF ALL TIME.
TRAILER FOR LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD: Awesome!
TRAILER FOR RUSH HOUR 3: fuck you
TRAILER FOR FANTASTIC FOUR: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER: ...awesome?
TRAILER FOR RESIDENT EVIL: EXTINCTION: I'll go see it at the cheap theatre and I'll feel guilty for doing so. It loses a point for not being called Resident Threevil.
I absolutely LOVE Danny Boyle's films, but I've gotta admit that I thought this was better then the first one. The plot was easier to follow, the acting was tops, and the effects were way over the top with that helicopter scene.
The only drawback is with Robert Carlyle's character following the kids around. It was a tad unbelievable there when he kept showing up behind them the whole way through London.
Neil Diamond time! Are you excited? Yeah, me neither. Two songs a piece tonight, which means a lot of running around, and apparently Paula took her meds twice as well. Nobody seems too psyched about any of this. This? Is American Idol.
