Yeah - been there with movie reviews before. I also did film for one of my areas of specialization in grad school, so I watched a lot of movies that are supposed to be brilliant, but which often left me cold. I think No Country For Old Men is a perfect example of that - I can appreciate what it did, but I didn't really enjoy it. On the other hand, I love 8 1/2 and Blow Up (the original Antonioni, not the one with John Travolta), so I admit to having a soft spot for more artsy films.I think my expectations were too high after hearing all of the stellar reviews. On the flip side, I saw that Robin Hood with Russel Crowe and thought it was pretty good. Had the reviews for it been amazing rather than "crap" I might have come away with a different opinion. Speaking of which, I suffered through Voyage of the Dawn Treader last night. Ugh.
But, should we buy it? We haven't since Legacy yet and haven't seen the original in forever.I'll go ahead and give this Tron 5-Disc set two thumbs up, but you have to have a pretty sizable dork side to really enjoy it all I think. Tron Legacy is "very cool" in spite of pretty poor writing and acting.
you just reminded me of my favorite childhood movie...Hey! We enunciate.
What usually bothers me is when the Boston accent is sooooo exaggerated. I think - 'there's no way we sound like that'.
