As I was cleaning I came across a few movies that I have watched and never blogged.

One: The Movie is a documentary about…well, oneness. It comes across as something deep and meaningful and frankly left me feeling less like “one” with my planet and more like most of my planet is made up of nutjobs. Now, before you start ripping on me for not “getting it,” for not being open to the message, let me assure you I do get it.

Its a fun little introspection and I am sure that for people not prone to that type of thought already, it could be a little eye-opening. For me though, it caused eyelid drooping – there is nothing really new here. The stuff with Uma Thurman‘s father was pretty cool though.

RATING 7 out of 10

The Illusionist starring Edward Norton was an decent little film. I probably rate it higher than I should because it is a period piece and we all know of my weakness for those.

It is a very nice love story with some magic, suspense, and intrigue thrown in for good measure. While there was nothing about the film that will make you want to talk about it tomorrow at the water cooler, you won’t feel that you wasted your time in the viewing. If you’re bored and have nothing else to watch, it will produce an enjoyable evening.

hsmds2.jpgYes, I admit it, I watched High School Musical., and you know what? I’d do it again! First, I like musicals. It is a film genre that has all but died so when a new one comes along, I have to get my fix. As modern musicals go, HSM won’t be signaling a comeback for the genre, but you could do a lot worse.

Sure, the storyline was just above retarded. Sure, the acting was just above…. well, a high school musical. Sure, the songs were contrived and not the kind you would ever find yourself jamming to on your iPod. It doesn’t matter. The movie was a fun little romp, not unlike the stupidity of the Honey, I Shrunk the Kids series crossed with an Aftershool Special.
