I went to see a play at my daughter’s school yesterday. Some of the singing was off key and the actors didn’t necessarily know they shouldn’t yell in the microphone. It didn’t matter though because they were kids putting their heart into their play and that mattered more than my never-ending need to over analyze everything.

Has a movie ever made you tired? Well, Avatar may wear you out by the end. It's nearly three hours of running through a fantasy forest, leaping over big trees, flying other-worldly pterodactyls and camera movement that makes you wonder if the cameraman or programmer was drunk. The movie is a thing of dreams and the design makes you wish you had the ability to make a movie like this. It's so beautiful, it's possible to get lost in the fantasy world and tune the movie out. And to be honest, that isn?t bad for a while.
If you love the color red, Go! If you like short stints of good action, Go! If you love a good script, Don’t Go! I think the commercials make it obviously clear Ninja Assassin isn’t made to get Oscars. The color is dark, the action is furious, the story is sometimes told in a painful collection of flashbacks but despite lagging in areas the movie has decent tempo and quality. The images have been altered so the blood is a deeper red, has a 3-D quality and runs slow like ketchup. Ninja stars and sword fights have movement trails with sound effects that make you feel like you’re caught between a movie and video game.
