Wednesday Mind Hump: Movies

Rfduck announced this week's WMH in this fashion:

"Greetings! Here we are again, mind humping. Once again, I have no good theme, so we'll talk about movies."

1. What is the last movie you watched?
I watched The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising with some of the grandkids just the other night.

2. Give us a brief review and tell us how you liked it.
An American-made movie set in England and shot in Romainia, TS:TDIR is a formulaic kids film pitting good vs. evil, light vs. dark with the forces of good and light triumphing in the end. While it is eminently watchable, it is neither enlightening nor very entertaining. The writing is hackneyed and several of the performances are stilted. I'd give it a pass unless you are into things of this nature.
3. Which of the movie's actors or actresses do you like best?
Easiest on the eyes is Amelia Warner playing Maggie Barnes. Not many lines, but cute.
4. Tell us the name of a movie that you haven't seen, but really should.
I really should rent the 2006 drama thriller The Departed with Jack Nicholson and Leonardo DiCaprio.
