Saw the Bourne Legacy yesterday. It was alright. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen the rest of them though.

The Buccanneer with Fredrich March and a young Anthony Quinn. 1934 and still enjoyable.

Saw it today; I think it might be better, for some to see this one without having experienced the greatness of the first two, three was OK. Then again, some relevant points were made to the originals. Legacy was pretty decent, just not anywhere near as good as the earlier versions. I'm not a fan of the actor in this new Legacy series; I was hoping I wouldn't feel that way after seeing the movie, but I still haven't warmed up to him in or out of character.

ACK!, think I watched too many shoot em up movies today, am so burned out on them, had a difficult time enjoying Safe House, just toooooooo much shooting, fighting after watching Bourne and then DayBreakers followed by SH. My head is spinning. Wish someone had spoiled the part about Denzel, I might have passes . Anyhoo, looking forward to Denzel's movie that's coming out on the big screen soon.

Tales From Earthsea. Excellent artwork, and I feel like I should have really loved it. But I don't know, there's just something missing. I understand it was Gorō Miyazaki's first film as director, and I guess I've just become used to his father's work, which is pretty much always fantastic. I have to give him credit for it, though; it certainly wasn't bad, by any means, and his father's reputation will be incredibly difficult if not impossible to live up to.

The Hunter with Willem Defoe. Slow movie but it was a good movie. Beautiful scenery!
Safe House with Denzel. It was entertaining, good action and also interesting to see parts of South Africa, a locale that is not common in movies. I don't think highly of Ryan Reynolds as an actor but he did an OK job too.
The plot is all-too-common "corrupt and sinister government officials/office" type action-drama similar to Bourne Identity series.

Savages. What I loved was John Travolta. I adored the loveable smarminess of his character, which he pulled off with charm & a cocky walk, loved that he's confident enough as a man to allow hairstylists to shave his hairline back & give him a very thinned out style in order to play his character (even though umpteen websites & 'reporters' taunted him with accusations of male pattern baldness... uncreative gits that they are), however, he wasn't in it enought to save this dreadful clunker... sad, that.

The younger actors were good, but, the plot was ridiculous, including 2 endings, which was a cheap trick & left me only feeling that the writer knew how silly his film was so he'd better have a twist... sorry, not deciding upon an ending doesn't qualify as a twist. The story was stupid & unbelievable from start to finish. I was stunned that Oliver Stone could do such a clunker after JFK & Nixon, 2 of my favorite films... then I recalled Natural Born Killers, 1 of my least favorite.

Benecio del Toro, whom I normally love was so laughable trying to play the meannie with his silly David Blane icy-stage-stare & Elvis-mullet-gone-bad hairstyle that I burst into laughter every time he appeared on camera. Aside from many movies with Christopher Walken & his helmut hair... this movie gave Benecio the worst wig I'd seen in awhile.

I like Blake Lively, but not in this... she was so monotone & flat & delivered one of the most unenjoyable voice overs I've heard... I couldn't understand the motivation of the men to save her. All in all, a waste of time.

1 out of 5 * only for Travolta's performance.
