Opinions are fun! I have my own, and I enjoy sharing it, but I also enjoy reading others, especially if it can be found on MSN.com. (Because they're usually so
I was reading along in the article and anticipated seeing a few that I did, like "The Last Song" and "Backup Plan." Two movies appeared, however, that I have to publicly disagree with: Kick Ass and Inception.
I'm not going to say much about Kick Ass, other than I enjoyed it and I thought it was original. The author of the MSN article, however, was appalled by its vulgarity and general distaste. (If you've seen the movie, you know what they're talking about.) I told Mandalyn about it. She also disagreed with the article and added, "well, it's not like you find Kick Ass in the family section at the store." I couldn't have put it better myself.
Now, Inception. Am I the only crazy person who really likes this movie? I think the effects were great, the story is complex (but follow-able), and the acting is good, too. Bottom line: I could watch Inception a few more times and still understand more of it.
The author of the article didn't like Inception because of the "One last job" story line. Okay. I get it. A lot of movies do this. But if you think about it, would you really want to see a movie about an every-day-sort-of-job or a fourth-from-last-job? Probably not. He also thought Inception was unnecessarily prolonged with the third and fourth levels of dreams. Whereas it was indeed a long film, I believe it was all necessary. That being said (and without spoiling anything for anyone), I could have done without the last 15 seconds. But in the grand scheme of things, what's 15 seconds compared to almost two and a half hours?
So after reading the article, I would agree on 8 of the "10 Worst" accounts. Don't bother with the likes of Jonah Hex and Sex and the City 2. Do, however, make time for Inception and Kick Ass.
