On Friday, both Chaco and Wolfgang were out with friends, so I suggested to Meego and Magnum that we go see "Cars 2". Meego wanted to see it. It is one of only two movies on our list-of-things-to-do-this-summer, the other one being "Transformers 3" which we knocked off a couple of weeks ago.
So off we went, and like "Transformers 3", I didn't have high expectations. Just go sit and indulge the kid and enjoy some air conditioning. Easy enough. Except I didn't like it, found it rather annoying actually. I know I'm not the target audience, but still. I give it a down dipstick. Okay, I don't want to talk about it anymore.
Next up: "Black Swan". This one, Mag and I watched on DVD. Have you seen it? I didn't really know much about it ahead of time, and only afterwards learned that Natalie Portman won a Best Actress Oscar for it. That's how out of the loop I am on such things.
I'm glad that I did learn just before watching it that it is considered a "thriller" and not a "drama", otherwise, I probably would have been ghastly surprised. So yes, it's graphic and edgy and DARK dark. If you like graphic, edgy, and DARK dark, I predict you will like "Black Swan". I give it two toes up.
If psycho people and creepy moms and ballerina-on-ballerina action make you uncomfortable however, you might want to pass.
