The Life Aquatic [Jan. 3rd, 2005|02:03 am]
Scrambled Porn


I really didn't enjoy The Life Aquatic, even despite a notable fondness for previous Wes Anderson movies (my favorite being Rushmore). I chuckled a couple of times and appreciated seeing Willem Defoe in a comedy but that aside I was completely bored. I've been looking forward to the film for some time and was disappointed that I just couldn't get into it.

Heather proposed leaving a quarter the way through, but I kept hoping it would pick up. And it did. But not enough to salvage my opinion of the movie.

Tomorrow we're going to watch Bottle Rockets again.

I definitely enjoyed the set design. And while I did enjoy the shark specifically, one of the worst thing about it was the really obvious computer generated fish they had in a few scenes.

Oh definitely. My enjoyment of the computer-stop motion fish was limited to the obviously-fake-by-design shark.
