Movie of the week: Red.

Red was one of those flicks that I actually got to see in theaters; it was cleverly done, had an excellent cast – it takes real skill to screw up a movie that has Morgan Freeman, Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, and Helen Mirren in it – and the plot was surprisingly sweet, considering the amount of explosions.

Quite a lot of explosions.  And automatic weapons fire.  Can’t have too much automatic weapons fire in a movie, in my opinion.

Anyway, that’s it for The Eagle Has Landed.

Movie of the Week: The Eagle has Landed.

Yeah, I know: Inception was starting to get stale.  I picked The Eagle Has Landed mostly because of this inside-blogball political piece demonstrating that there ain’t nothing so stupid that you can’t get a Media Matters for America hack like Eric Boehlert to confidently argue its side, but that’s not really relevant.  It’s a good flick – and if you don’t get the joke, well, I guess that means that you need to see the movie, huh?
