Way of the Future

Wow, I actually got to watch some movies this weekend and RELAX. I watched Face/Off, which I still love, The Aviator, Bringing Out the Dead (right now, cause I've had it and haven't watched it in five years), the highlight reel of Hard Target Theatrical cut (I have a muddy boot of a workprint that infinitely better but only barely watchable), Land of the Dead, and Day of the Dead, which are the Dead films I love to watch most these days. The Aviator is still a problematic movie (due to its episodic nature, and its shallowness), but it has a certain heft, while Face/Off is just the most perfect piece of American Woo. I'm actually digging on the zone out of Bringing Out the Dead, but it may not hold up. The week promises to be busy enough.
