Movie Reviews "Awake" and "There Will Be Blood"

Two more movie reviews in 30 seconds or less...

There Will Be Blood - Set at the turn-of-the century. Daniel Day-Lewis is searching for oil and buying up land. His adopted son suffers for it. There is also an underlying moral/religious theme. We give it 4 stars for originality and DD-L is just a great actor.

Key Quotes:

N - "hmmmm, this is much better than I thought it would be. That title really put me off" (title does makes sense after you see the movie)
K - "I liked it. It was good."

Awake - Set in current day - thriller set around Hayden Christiansen's character suffering from "anesthetic awareness" (which is a real phenonmen and sounds absolutely horrifying). We give it 3 stars for originality and I liked the ending, but the acting/story was kind of hokey.

Key quotes:

N - "I really can't watch Jessica Alba. She kind of ruined herself for me by making movies like "Honey" and being quoted recently as saying she and her boyfriend don't use birth control because to them sex was "no big thing". (Unless you are living under a rock you know that she is currently very pregnant.)

K - "no way - you'd be screaming the whole time they were cutting you open. You couldn't narrate a movie" (as he was sitting there with his hand clenching the side of his head - very tense-like). He was really on the edge of his seat.
