Just got done seeing it! Wow!
As I said before:
El Biyu (20:31:39): He's one of my favorite enforcers of a pseudo-fascist ideology!
I can't wait to see it.
My son, who (of course) watched it with me, managed to stump me with a question at the end of the movie.
Son: Ok, Dad. Jason Bourne or Jack Bauer?
(I still don't know!! )
I plan on seeing this on Friday. Looking forward to it.
I expect a similar JCC thread from you on Friday.
Seeing it this week hopefully.
Good things come to those yadda yadda yadda.
CAN wait, but very much looking forward to it.
Tonight is teh night.
I want a full report on it's awesomeness!! If you decide you don't like it, I'd rather you didn't tell me that as it might affect the way I view you.
Shallow, I know, but nonetheless....
Not v.v.good, as I thought one of the locales dragged on a bit to no obvious narrative gain, and perhaps... perhaps they managed to squeeze in a bit of 'lecturing'. Fantastic action scenes, excellent combat work, a satisfying conclusion, excellent music, and it didn't feel then need to pull any fast ones, so to speak; it stuck to its own path (in the same way Harry Potter did).
But you have to admit that nothing this summer has been even close to it, no?
No. It stands alone.
Excellent! Then I agree with you!
Fantastic that it knew when to end. So many movies these days (infact, the majority IMO) have absolutely no idea when to stop, when (or indeed how) to resolve the story but still leave enough to chew on. They don't seem to know how to intertwine the necessary backstory and a conclusion - or even make them as one. Ultimatum did it at a canter. It's refreshing to emerge almost completely satisfied from a movie boasting a running time below two hours.
Excellent point. This was especially true of Return of the King, which I thought was a travesty when it came to wrapping up a movie. Matrix 3, also! Uggh! I could go on, but I think we're on the same page.
Yes, Ultimatum knew what it was, where it was going, and how it was going to get there. there was no question that they were telling a story worth watching and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
