I watched three movies last weekend.
I Am Legend
I thought this movie was very forgettable. I never really connected with the character and it didn't grip me for whatever reason. It seemed like it wanted to be more than it actually was. Also the CG zombies looked horrible. I never felt threatened by them, because I never felt they were physically there. Fail for a zombie movie.
Probably my favourite Bond movie of the ones I've seen. Even though I've never been a huge fan of the Bond series (I always want to like it more than I do), the nostalgia still managed to hit me. The music, the reintroduction of Q, Moneypenny etc., the Aston Martin. Cool stuff. I also appreciated the background given to Bond's character. Craig is also by far my faourite Bond, because he's able to turn a character I've always struggled to like into a character I can actually care about for two hours. I thought it felt a bit long though.
Life of Pi
By far my favourite of the three. If you're Canadian Life of Pi is required reading and it was one of the better books I read for school. I was skeptical when I heard this was going to be a movie, because I thought they would need to completely re-imagine it (it is, after all, a story about a boy on a lifeboat with a tiger and... plot-wise that's about it), but to my surprise it was a straightforward adaptation and it worked surprisingly well. I was genuinely moved at parts. Wonderful film-making. Of the three movies I watched, this was the one that kept me on the edge of my seat (especially notable, since it was the only movie of the three that I knew the ending to), and while I more-or-less enjoyed all three, this is the only one that I feel the need to re-watch and/or buy.
Where sky and water meet,
Where the waves grow sweet,
Doubt not, Reepicheep,
To find all you seek,
There is the utter east.
