wreck-reation…

so this past weekend, I got around to watching the Highlander: The Search For Vengeance anime movie – I gotta say, it was kinda weak… the art/animation was fairly good, but the story missed a lot of the better things about the franchise, instead resorting to being another addition to the “dumber” of the anime collective… the story was a patchwork of slight alterations from a lot of the Highlander story elements so far – but not much of a spin on ’em… unless you think the “future” element is new (which alot of people might, if they never saw either version of the 2nd film)…
but about character – I was really annoyed with the main character… they gave me just about no reason at all to root for the character… why am I watching his “search for vengeance” (ugh) if I have no alternative but to think of him as a whiny, stubborn little wanker…
I mean, as far as the anime thing goes, Ninja Scroll’s Jubei had very short sparse lines, but they still managed to make him endearing/entertaining…
but wow, I’ve already spent this much time & energy talking about this movie that I don’t ever need to watch again…
so: basically it seemed like a crossing of the american cartoon series they made & Aeon Flux…

TheGamePlan

left wanting, I ended up watching The Game Plan with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson…
this one was funny & entertaining like I thought it would be, & somehow the combined personalities of the Rock & Madison Pettis diminished the “disney factor” enough for it to be a lot less stale then one would expect when seeing that header above the title…
it wasn’t brain surgery, but it sure seemed to be after watching the previous movie…
