Yesterday was ... mixed. I had a number of nursing homes to visit, so I got home fairly late.

Once there, forestcats and I watched a Netflix disc, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole. It was visually stunning CGI, but I didn't care about any of the characters, and the plot was rather predictable. I felt at the end that I could have turned off the sound, and just watched the spectacle, and would have enjoyed it more. Too bad. I rather fear that the upcoming film Rango is going to be like this, too, so I don't expect to see it in the theater.

Legend of the Gaurdians

Best description I heard of the owl movie is that absolutely every frame looked like it should be painted on the side of a van, and that the script was just about that exciting.

Oh, it was beautiful, it really was, but I can look at beauty at a museum. I expect more from a movie, and I didn't get it.

I have to agree with you on this. Guardians was really pretty, but the story...

Not the best.

But beautifully shot.

That's kind of how I felt about Avatar. It looked really pretty, and really cool, but the story? Read it a thousand times.

I hated Avatar. I disliked this owl film. Avatar pissed me off with the 3D effects as well as all the other issues I discussed back in my post after I saw it.
