Due to a confluence of several conditions — I was feeling blue this morning, and my latest virus scan had detected spyware so I couldn’t use my PC for several hours while I was fixing the problem and running scans — I decided to catch up with some DVDs I’d checked out from the library.
First I watched two Razzie nominees. After Earth was just as bad as I remembered from when I saw it in the movie theater (yes, I saw it in the theater, why do you ask?) The Smurfs 2 was doofy on several levels, but curiously sweet and poignant in other ways. Full reviews on both of those films to follow.
If you enjoy science fiction, if you enjoy innovative and challenging films, or if you’d like to watch something space-oriented while you’re waiting for your copy of Gravity to arrive, then you should definitely check out Europa Report!
