Get Smart and Dark Knight July 17, 2008Posted by faelix in ocity.
Stupendo Man and I went to see two movies this week! So indulgent. Although, Get Smart was on cheap Tuesday night and Dark Knight was free tickets, curtesey of a workmate’s husband. Yay.
Get Smart was good. It wasn’t just a movie version of the tv series, and while it still used some of the old gags, it did bring both Control and Kaos into current times. It was good to see yet another failure of the Cone of Silence. ;) I hope there’s a sequel, or a new series. It’d be good.
Dark Knight was also good. I really liked the magic trick with the pen. And the technological doodads that they gave Batman weren’t too unrealistic. I also appreciated that they made it so they didnt always work all the time. I’m also glad they didn’t follow the typical american movie formula – hero falls for a girl, hero wins, bad guy loses, hero gets the girl, and hero lives happily ever after.
