Grab your favorite mix tape and drive real fast to the movie theater for this one. It is most awesome and at times is a bit like a version of Grand Theft Auto on screen.
I had hopes for this movie. It had many pieces, but for me they didn’t fit once on screen. The lead actors are good, but there is a chemistry missing here. The aliens are cool, but these days a few CGI aliens don’t make a movie. A good movie takes you somewhere magical, but this one takes you to a pop-up army camp in a field in Montana. And lastly, this movie makes you think, but the more I pondered the circumstances, the more I frowned on the decision making taking place. If you see this film, I hope you enjoy it more than I did.
It was a lazy Sunday. I slept a lot, watched some football, ate a late lunch, and then went out to Lake Pflugerville for a sunset walk around the 3 mile loop.
Miami, Jordan, Iraq, Vegas, and Albania are some of the locations involved in this tale. Of these, Miami takes center stage with its beautiful coastline scenes and city views. This is a pretty good movie based upon a true story. If nothing else, read the article from Rolling Stone Magazine (but maybe wait until you have seen the film if you intend on watching this one so you don’t spoil it). The film will make you consider the business of war in today’s global economy.
The intermittent rain showers chased some of the crowds away from the water park this afternoon. For some reason, I think that water parks are more fun when it rains. 🙂
