Theater Attendance

Seen in the theater lately:

The Lake House - A decent film overall, with some predictable parts. I saw this one in Hollywood.

The Devil Wears Prada - (seen with a free pass, so I didn't waste any $) The acting of the main characters was good, but the story couldn't have been more formulaic. It was even obvious to me where the first and second acts ended. I rarely notice that kind of thing, but it was glaring in this case. I just wonder if the book is the same way.

Superman Returns - I didn't like this one. This post does a good job of explaining why, and some of the comments do too. I can say that Bosworth is a horrible Lois Lane, but most of the action scenes were very well done. They almost distracted from the lame storyline.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest - Before seeing it, I heard some mumblings and grumblings about how there was no story in this and it was all a set up for the third movie. I'm not sure what movie those people were watching, because this one was chock full of story, action and intrigue. It took me way too long to get the pun in the subtitle (Davey's heart, chest, sunken chest, har dee har har)

X-Men: The Last Stand - (second time) Even better than the first, since there is a high level of detail in this movie.
