I Might Be Legend...

if not the worst movie I've ever seen, then those taking the honor were so horrible I've blocked their memory to avoid further trauma.

Sorry. It just totally blew. I'm sure any day Will Smith will awaken and wonder what the hell he was thinking when he took that role. But I will allow that he looked quite... delectable .... doing chin ups.

Happy New Year---so long 2007. Don't come back.

I loved it. Light years better than Castaway or any other movie like it.

I allow for flights of fancy in movie but this one asked us to suspend belief for these VERY major plot elements:
1. People turn into vampire/zombies when infected with an engineered measles virus that cured cancer but then acted like rabies. Ummmm....
2. Will Smith is a senior Army dude with major property holding on Washington Square---with all the other don't-ask-don't-tell career military gays, right?
3. In that same luxe residence, there's a secret bat-cave with laboratory fittings that look to exceed biohazard level 4 (like you have to manipulate smallpox and ebola...). And he simultaneously runs animal and human trials--not unthinkable but there are all of these trappings of protocol...and where are all the human subjects he's run through other tests that didn't work? Does he have ICU-like bays for all of them? Or does he drop them down the floor into a big meat-gringing, oven facility...?

Oh wait. Mixing movies. One definitely more believable than the other, too.

The beautiful square on the park did give me a moment of pause too, but, I just thought, maybe he's one of those well-compensated, insider, Bush administration types. Or, his wife does really well." I liked how his house was full of art work, like he went to the museums and took at the stuff he loved. I'm interested in reading the book, even though that's not normally my thing.
