Other movies I've seen lately:
Eagle Eye: a fun, politically double-edged romp about the danger of information technology.
Leaving Las Vegas: yuk. I mean, I guess it was well executed, and it won Nicholas Cage an Oscar, but really, who wants to watch this crap.
Parenthetically, whatever happened to Elizabeth Shue? Her role in Leaving Las Vegas (1995) got her an Oscar nomination, but her work since then has been sporadic, mostly in minor films for which I can't even recall seeing a trailer.
10,000 B.C.: I can imagine Warner Brothers' thought process went something like, "Hey, if Mel Gibson can make Apocalypto, then we should be able to take the same storyline, add in some cool CGI of giant critters like woolly mammoths and sabre-tooth tigers, set it in 10,000 B.C. to make sure that no identity interest groups get on our case, and then put in lots of anachronisms like metal weapons and ziggurats, and the public will buy it! Because, you know, Gibson made Apocalypto . . . ."
There aren't too many movies so bad I don't finish them, but this was one.
Equilibrium: What should we make of the fact that we find animal suffering more affecting than human suffering? Equilibrium treats us to the graphic murder of an untold number of people charged with "sense offense", but when the Grammaton Clerics find a dog kennel, the butchering of the dogs is kept safely off screen, and it's a puppy that inspires compassion in Christian Bale's character where human beings have not. Is it a sign of Western decadence that we love animals more than our fellow men? Is the elevated status of household pets part of our Anglo-Saxon heritage? Or have all cultures always had a soft spot for defenseless animals?
UPDATE: In the comments, Peter provides a detail about 10,000 B.C.:
[I]t featured one of the best movie bloopers of all time: a startled character exclaiming "Jesus!"
All too believable.
