gottatatchemall: ((Shawshank) Get livin' or get dyin')
Watched two movies over the past two days; I'm not usually a movie person, but I was compelled.

First was The Last Dragon, a movie about a black kid named Leroy who studies the martial arts and is in search of the last level of enlightenment; "The Glow", as it is called. The plot is silly, there are random bad musical numbers tossed into the film for no real reason, and it's not exactly a masterpiece. But it's not supposed to be taken seriously, and if you watch it with that mindset, you'll find a surprisingly enjoyable film, with a few enjoyable characters (I must admit, Leroy reminds me of Sousuke, if he was black and into Bruce Lee instead of the military).

Next came The Shawshank Redemption, which is a COMPLTELY different sort of film so I won't even bother comparing the two. It's safe to say this is still one of my favorite movies of all time; it's not terribly exciting, but it doesn't have to be because it's not that type of movie. That's what I like the most; the movie is what it is, and doesn't try to be anything else. Everyone played their parts stupendously (Morgan Freeman, obviously, but even the minor characters were sensational). Honestly, I recommend this movie to just about everyone who doesn't mind a bunch of cursing and a bit of implied rape (it's a movie about prison, what do you expect?). THIS one, I think, can be safely labeled a masterpiece.

I need something else to watch now. Any tips? No musicals plzkthx
