Brief review of "The Island"
I'm disappointed that I didn't get to the keyboard last night. I fell asleep putting Jacob down and when I awoke (around 10:30), I was too groggy to think straight. Of course, when I decide to go back to bed, I was wide awake. Whatever.
Work has been solid for the past couple of weeks. Busy. Plus, I'm developing some new stories for possible future scripts. I plan to pitch them to the manager I have been dealing with for the past couple of months. Hopefully something will stick.
At the same time, I have begun "Soulless 2", a sequel to a horror script I wrote years ago, and should be going into production soon. "Should" is the key word in that sentence. Still, I am optimistic.
I had planned to review "The Island" last night. I had very low expectations. Truth is, I have trouble sitting through Michael Bay's movies. But I didn't hate this one. In fact, before the movie became an action flick, I was enjoying the sci-fi angle of the whole movie. And I really liked the performances by Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson. Their characters are supposed to only mentally developed to the age of 14 year olds and they both did this nicely.
That's it for now.
