Gay Guy in Seminary: Day 29 (9)

Sorry folks, it's gonna be a short one today because I have A TON of reading to do and it's getting really late O_o

So, movie review time. Ryan, Julie, Amber and I went to go see "9" today, a movie that just came out about a group of little voodoo doll lookin' things trying to survive in a post apocalyptic world.

***SPOILER ALERT***

I wasn't all that impressed with the movie. It moved kind of slow, and considering what it was, there should have been a lot more action. The story line also left much to be desired. The concept was cool, but the writers should have realized from the get-go that they were basically painting themselves into a corner. There's not much you can do with a story when your basic premise is that all life on the planet is dead. Plus, they do some weird things with splitting souls and the main character has a pretty lame character arc. The director should have spent more time on the character's relationships with each other. It's obvious there's a lot of history there, so there were character arcs aplenty to choose from. I also didn't like the caricature of the strong idiot that is so prevalent in movies today.

Okay, I need to stop now and read about Drugs and Jesus. (otherwise known as "The Sacred and the Substance")
