Took the under-17s to see Underworld today. I’m getting old and crotchety – it seems like every movie I’ve seen in the last year has the SOUND TURNED UP SO LOUD THAT WE’RE ALL GONNA GO DEAF!
And when it was quiet, the movie experience was not improved by the loud, inappropriate giggling of two juveniles nearby (whose mother didn’t seem to mind a bit).
Anyway, it was a terrible movie. A nice middle European feel, a few interesting plot twists, Kate Beckinsale looking pretty cool in her Trinity leather, but that’s about it. Ridley Scott did dark and rainy all the time much better in Blade Runner.
