03.30.14Internet I will admit that my reasoning in seeing this was mostly spite. I think Ridley Scott hasn't made a movie worth talking about for 30 years and he's one of if not the absolute most overrated director working today. However, in this case I really think it's the script to blame. Even though Cameron Diaz' performance was terrible, I can't imagine that character and those lines ever being good. And it's not like anyone wants to see Meryl Streep fucking a car.

I watched the extended cut... because... hmmm why did I do that. I guess I thought if I was going to watch this then I wanted to see the best effort and not something that could be claimed as compromised. And I feel like what happens in a lot of these movies where tone and detail kind of outweigh plot(I'm thinking stuff like Miami Vice and JFK) then I like the extended versions much better because they give room for the characters to breathe.

This was still pretty terrible though. I liked everything that had to do with the transport of drugs. Everything else (i.e. all the stuff with the movie stars) sucked. It does have me in a mood to watch No Country again though... which I'll probably do soon.
