You know. I’m going to end up seeing the movie, “The Day After Tomorrow”. Sadly, I don’t expect it to be good, though.
So far the movie’s been promoted with its special effects. That’s not a good sign. I didn’t even know who was in it until a few days ago.
I’ve seen a few “blockbusters” in the past few weeks and they’ve all been the same, pretty much. By that, I mean there’s too much computer work and not enough (or consistent, sensible) story. And Hollywood just keeps cranking them out, despite what seems to be a consensus that part of the soul of these movies is being sacrificed for the sake of special effects budgets.
At this point, I’d settle for a world-gets-destroyed movie that’s all special effects for an hour and a half. Forget the actors. And who needs a plot. It could be like “Winged Migration” except fictional. And it would probably be a better movie than most of the H-wood efforts.
The good news is that it should at least be less comic-booky than Van Helsing, Hellboy and that other one that I can’t remember.
Okay. I hunger. Must feed.
