Un Cachito de la vida - A little piece of Cameron's life

Friday was kind of a movie day for me, so I thought I'd write something up. I started out with Bourne Ultimatum at 12:01 AM and then Ratatouille that evening - though I was seriously thinking about watching Bourne Ultimatum again.Bourne Ultimatum is great. It has a great story line, tying up a lot of things, with constant excellent action sequences. I love Matt Damon's methodical and unemotional character. He doesn't laugh but he doesn't pout or get dramatical. He just does what he does best. There was only one significant thing I didn't like and one small thing. The big thing is the shaky camera action. It's the same in Bourne Supremacy and I didn't care for it then; I still don't. Some do like it, but I find it harder to understand what's happening in an action sequence. The small thing I mentioned is that there seemed to me to be a lot of faces to try to keep straight. Of course, it could just mean that it was 2 in the morning and I was tired, so I won't weigh it heavily. Given my distaste for the camera action (I'd rather keep the director from Bourne Identity), I would give the movie an A-. Ratatouille was also very good, though very different. I was pleasantly surprised at how entertaining it was. In addition, there was a pre-movie animated Pixar short called Lifted that was very charming. The movie itself had plenty of charm as well, in addition to plenty of humor and plot, assuming you don't get hung up on things like rats being able to understand English but not being able to speak it. Since I can't think of anyway to make this one better, I think I'd have to give this an A.

Ratatouille and Bourne Ultimatum were "very different" from each other?

I also DUG Bourne Ultimatum. It was awesome. I wholeheartedly agree about the shaky camera. I think that the camera "effect" was probably done for style, but also I think that it significantly lowers the cost and time required over using several mounted or mobile cameras.I wish that I would have watched the first two right before seeing Ultimatum. I'd seen them before, but BU really starts right up where BS leaves off. I wished that I remembered BS with more clarity. My wife hasn't seen it yet, so we're watching BI and BS before taking her to see it.
