God of Thunder and Rock'n'Roll


Watched K-19: The Widowmaker this evening. I'm really glad I never saw the trailer for this, because it made the film out to be more of a war movie, and it isn't. Actually, it was pretty good. Not an action film, but a situation film, if you dig. If nothing else, Harrison Ford and Liam Neeson were wonderful, pretty much as always. The details on this movie made a lot of the difference. If you can get the DVD, do, because you gotta see everything that went into this movie. If nothing else, it was a beautfully shot film, incredibly well-researched, and a fairly moving story (though it doesn't seem that way). However, i can see why it didn't do well at the theatre...as with so many great movies, you need to have a brain, and you aren't gonna get a lot of flashy action (though there were some really cool sequences), which cuts out most of the American public. I don't think I'll own it, but I'm glad I saw it. Thoroughly enjoyable.
