Where are they? Given that it's Wednesday night here in Reno and there's absolutely nothing on the Boob Toob, I'm watching "The Interpreter" on DVD right now. I really like this movie. Action, a bit of hidden passion, strong storyline, and good acting. But where are movies like this these days?
Sure, I like the usual guy blow-'em-up-chicks-in-hot-outfits movies, but living on a diet of action/T&A flicks is like living on a diet of regular Sunkist and Haagen Dass (or whatever). We all need to think occassionally, and the older ya get the less these dumb@ss movies work for ya. So I look for movies that make me think. "The Interpreter" is one of them. I like to give some thought to storylines and plot occassionally, without the interference of mundane, crass, or stupid storytelling. This movie does it for me.
Give these movies a look:
* "The Interpreter"
* "Home Room"
* "Virgin Diaries"
* "National Treasure"
Ok, sure, "National Treasure" doesn't fit, but it's a decent action flick that's smartly written and well-acted. :) Definately worth a look.
Time to rewind the movie to watch what I've missed while posting this. :)
