The Perfect Storm

perfectstormNot all that great. Director Wolfgang Petersen tries very had to make these noble fishermen seem heroic instead of foolhardy. In the press, more fuss was made over the hard work to create CGI waves than the rest of the movie.

The Patriot

patriotCoulda been soooo much better. I am still waiting for the definitive Revolutionary War movie. Chris Cooper was great, he seemed born to play a 1700s American colonist. We saw this in Randolph, on the drive back from Mike and Laura Lee's house in Humarock. (Showcase Cinemas Randolph)
