I finally got round to seeing 'Attack of the Clones' a couple of weeks or so back. Wow. James Lileks can definitely recommend movies for me in the future. He liked Spider-Man. It rocked. He loved AOTC. So did I. It was at the very least ten times better than Episode I. The whole place erupted in applause and cheers when the credits rolled and the friend I was with (who is a totally committed Star Wars fanatic) was cock-a-hoop.
I saw 'Lilo and Stitch' on Thursday. Another excellent movie. Disney has definitely got it back. This is a much more mature comedy, in the vein of 'Emperor's New Groove'. I saw the 8.45pm English version so there were few kids there, but I'm pretty sure they would have liked it too.
Next up: Minority Report, MIB II and We Were Soldiers. I wish that Costa Rica got movie releases a bit closer to the US. It's really hard to avoid stumbling across spoilers.
