Thumbs Up

It was too hot to spend any significant time outdoors this weekend, so I saw three movies.  I saw Shrek and A.I. at the local theatres, and enjoyed Cast Away from the comfort of my living room.

Of the three, I liked Shrek the best.  The computer animation was simply stunning on the big screen, and it was much funnier than I thought it was going to be.  The little digs at Disney were quite funny as well..

A.I. was quite entertaining, though a little long.  This is most definitely not a movie for kids.  Don't take yours along thinking that it is.    The underrated Bicentennial Man covered much of the same material as this movie, and I think it did it better.

Cast Away was very entertaining, though I think it would have been even better if more time was spent focused on him on the island, and less time...well, I'm not going to give anything away like the trailers unfortunately did.
