Cashed in my first free movie ticket tonight. Ben Stiller, a newly recruited night security guard at the Museum of Natural History discovers that an ancient curse causes the animals and exhibits on display to come to life and wreak havoc.
It was a fun movie to say the least. Stiller was typical...same as always and always putting a smile on your face. Dick Dyke was a treat to see on the big screen. Micky Rooney was annoying. I don't know what the big fuss was with Wilson. He was only good in one scene in my opinion (where Stiller is holding him and Owen tries to shoot him in the eye) all others he looked like he was having trouble with the blue screen. That is what I would say is the biggest problem with this film. Its not the "now"...it's the future. I thought the special effects were convincing but for some reason it really stuck out to me that these effect aren't going to age well.
I really unfortunately don't have much to say about this film. I'm starring at my monitor like an ape(or zombie) completely at a loss of what to say. I have wrote more about the fact that I don't know what to say than I have the actual movie I am reviewing. This review will not go in my writing portfolio I think. Hmmm I guess this speaks highly of the impact this movie had on me.
I had fun...that has to count for something. I guess it reminded me too much of Jumanji is all...kinda...heck, I had fun and it was free.
