Thing One has a 101 degree fever and Thing Two’s fever is down from 105 to 102. So needless to say, we’re all lying around like big lumps. Anyway, Thing One got the brilliant idea to watch the Transformers movie. Having absolutely no will power, I got sucked into the movie. You know what? I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but it’s really pretty good. The goals, motivation and conflict are all there, there’s some decent character development and the dialogue is downright enjoyable.
Now, it could be that the plague has interfered with my ability to discern a good movie from a bad one, but I don’t think so. However, I’m unwilling to test this theory by watching Mariah Carey’s Glitter. That’s a road I’m unable to travel – even for the advancement of science.
So what about you guys, have any movies surprised you by being much better (or worse) than you expected?
