Quick movie reviews: "The New World" and "Night Watch"

Don't switch the blade on the guy in shades, oh no.

The New World: Beautiful to look at, great score, the rest...meh. I had high hopes for it, but it fell flat for me. There is an overabundance of hushed, poetic voiceovers which sound really silly. It's like a Calvin Klein Obsession commercial set at Jamestown. Plus, I swear at one point Pocahontas said "zoom zoom".

Night Watch: The second movie I watched last night and another one I was looking forward to. I love epic battles between Good and Evil, not to mention beautiful Russian women. The subtitle work was cool (believe it or not), some of the effects were a bit cheesy, but others were neat. Although sometimes I had no idea what the hell was going on, I dug it. Can't wait for parts two and three.
