    Memories of the Sword

    ★★½

    This is a perfect example of one of those really frustrating viewing experiences where I admire some things about a movie (e.g., the beautiful visuals aside from the shitty flying effects) but know it’s never truly going to draw me in, yet I still make the decision to finish it.

    ★★★½

    The ending works, but i remember feeling immediately disappointed that Margot wasn’t dead. Even now, I think I may have liked the movie more if that was the case but I’m not sure there’s a good reason for that. Maybe because these kinds of storylines often end that way and it just feels natural to have bad shit happen, wrapping things up on a sad downer note?

    So apparently Channing Tatum only wanted to shoot off Sam Jackson's "juevos," not kill him.

    ★★

    This struck me as nothing more than a mediocre crowd pleaser. Within the first 10 minutes, I found the dialogue and characters either so bland or so annoying that I was sure I’d end up hating the movie. If Julie was the main character, perhaps I would’ve been more interested.
