We went to the movies tonight and caught Red Eye. 86 minutes is NOT an acceptable length for a movie by any stretch. Not that I would have wanted the torture to continue. The movie started borring, ran 86 minutes of borring back and forth dribble banter and ended borring. Pathetic in every sense. About 60 minutes of the 86 involved the worst dialog I’ve heard all delivered in a single setting. A plane.
Let me summerize the movie for you. A girl who can’t act meets a guy who has a pan face on a plane. They talk. The relationship ends badly. With death. The end.
It took so effing long for the “story” to start that when its over I thought it was going to do some of that Hollywood twist ending bullshit where the movie “ends” and then takes off in a whole new direction. But it doesn’t. It ends. It just friggin ends. Which, based on the dialog is probably for the best. Had I been forced to sit through 120 minutes instead of 86 I’m sure you’d be hearing about how it was way too long.
Way to go Hollywood, just keep flushing yourselves down the drain. See if I go to the movies again any time soon. Geez.
Red Eye – D- (and it didn’t get an F simply because something blew up in the end)
Your movie review is hilarious. Check out my blog. It’s full of rants and stuff. I frequent your blog and have added you as a link, add me if you like what you see! =)
But the critics love it!
Critics are morons. Whats funny is the old lady infront of us, on the way out, kept telling people waiting in line for the next showing how much she loved it. I almost beat the elderly.
Oh, and Sledge, thanks for the link. It’s an honor to be linked with the likes of TotalBF2 and NewGrounds. Consider youself linked back as soon as I get internet back for more than 15 minutes. 🙂
