weekend movies

Entry #1223, Mon, February 25, 2002, 01:06 EST (Movies)
(posted when I was 23 years old.)
This weekend I watched Amazons and Gladiators, Chicken Run, 10 Things I Hate About You, Malena, Ben-Hur, Gattaca, and Stargate. I enjoyed all of them.

Amazons and Gladiators can only be accurately described as "Saturday Night TV: The Movie." Chicken Run was a very cute claymation movie done by the Wallace and Gromit people. 10 Things I Hate About You is Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew reset as a teenage soap opera. I'd seen it before, but wanted to see it again. Malena is an Italian movie about the misfortunes of a woman during WWII. Ben-Hur had less chariot racing than I expected, but I still enjoyed it. It is 222 minutes long. Gattaca is about the evils of genetic profiling in the not-so-distant future. Stargate is fun sci-fi. I'd seen it before, but it's still fun. It was a very good mix of movies, I feel. I also rented Lawrence of Arabia, but that will have to wait.
