Bergman provides another abstract masterclass in identity. This has been one of those films where I'm noticeably shaken at the thought of the potential of not seeing it (sorry, mouthful). This film exists far more outside of itself than the actual content on screen. If you're thinking about only the themes you're seeing, you're not getting enough out of it. Thus, Bergman; on the breach of breadth again.

-How beautiful, this pale Endymion hour.
-What are you talking about?
-Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
-Well, forget about him and get to bed.
-Yes, my dear.

Punisher: War Zone.
While the film possessed some very colorful villains -- the kind you would find in an adult comic book a la The Punisher -- there was absolutely no reason to reboot the franchise, as I thought the 2004 Thomas Jane version was superior and even a masterpiece in the realm of low-budget cinema.
While The Punisher was like an '80s action movie, Punisher: War Zone was like its video game counterpart. Still, it was mildly entertaining.
And on another note, I think that kids should be banned from ever entering a movie theater. I can't believe that kids still use those annoying keychain laser pointers as toys. I mean, how amusing could a little red dot moving across the screen possibly get? I could only guess this was a group of adolescent ESFPs -- and they never stopped talking throughout the entire fucking movie.

We're watching a show called "The Life and Times of Tim" (HBO).

I saw The Day the Earth Stood Still. The one thing I can't stand about these "message" movies is that they cover issues that are not real, such as global warming, this is all disguised under product placement from the likes of McDonald's and Windows, perhaps used as bait to sell the more...ahem...global idea of global warming.
And I also hate when they put annoying kids in the movies.
Oh well, at least it had some pretty neat special effects, I'll be happy to read about them in Cinefex.
I'll get the movie on Blu-Ray for that purpose.
