Two DVDs This Weekend

We also watched two DVDs this weekend: Run Lola Run and The Perfect Storm. I would say that Run Lola Run was a very clever little puzzle, even though the characters weren’t very well developed. I liked the way the animation bit was integrated and also the opening title scene where the soccer ball is thrown up in the air. We’d both seen The Perfect Storm in the theatre when it came out, but it was good to see it with some of the documentaries and commentary. I read the book shortly after seeing the film and it’s definitely a better experience when you’ve got the background material. Mark Wahlberg is quickly becoming one of my favourite actors (never thought I’d be saying that, but hey, he’s good.)
