Angels & Demons Movie Review

Only 27 days after the opening, Joni authorized a lunchtime trip to the local movie theater to see the Tom Hanks film Angels & Demons. A review of the movie will be forthcoming later today or maybe tomorrow. Expect to see a few initial reactions about the movie on Twitter. Over the years, Tom Hanks has been involved in a very wide range of movie projects. After recently hearing Tom Hanks participate in an excellent radio interview on the Dennis Miller Show, it seemed like a good time to see the movie. Movies only have limited theatrical runs. Movie theaters could make money by showing classic movies on weekdays. A large catalog of movies exists. Based on the total catalog of available movies a classic movie Tuesday format could bring 52 movies a year to life on the big screen.

Angels & Demons Movie Review…

Dan Brown probably should have crafted a stronger novel. Elements of the plot are interesting and could have been the seeds of a strong novel. Overall, some of the plot decisions seriously hampered the development of both characters and readability. Visually, the movie delivers stunning imagery. Tom Hanks worked within the backdrop of history. Tom Hanks delivered a high quality performance that almost overcomes the shortcomings of the novel. All of the artwork, architecture, and stunning background imagery made the movie. For the most part, the last third of the book really begins to unravel.


Terminator Salvation Tickets

Updated: Nels will be attending a Thursday evening showing of the Terminator Salvation theatrical film at the local movie theater. Nels went to see the theatrical release of Star Trek XI (2009) at 7:30 PM MST on Thursday May 7, 2009. Friday nights seem to be rather busy at the local Cinemark movie theater. Thursday evening movie releases provide access to the same product without the problem of overcrowding. For some reason, movie studios still engage in the limited midnight release of movies. If the movie theater will be playing the film at midnight, then why not just open the release at a reasonable hour. What is the point of limiting access to a product?

In terms of the Terminator franchise, Nels watched every episode of the television series, “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.” Nels has also seen all three theatrical films released as part of the Terminator Franchise. The idea of technology gaining self awareness taking over everything seems unimaginable but also possible.

Nels will rank the Terminator franchise endeavors by personal preference.

  1. The Terminator (1984)
  2. Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)
  3. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (2008 to 2009)
  4. Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003)

Where will Terminator Salvation rank within Terminator franchise endeavors?
