    G-S-T Quick 5 – Movies Better Enjoyed On ‘MUTE’

    You know, as the old saying goes, you just “can’t please all the people all of the time”.  Well as film fans, it seems that no matter what goes into a film we all have something to gripe about.  It could be dialogue, a casting decision, the story line, music, the director and so on, but there’s bound to be one element keeping us from liking every film.  So I’ve comprised a rather personal and unique topic to post on the site.  The list below highlights the 5 films I love to look at but, as you’ll find out because of one reason or another, I am not entirely fond…

    Off the Shelf…'The Island'

    From the successful multi-blog event headed up by Fandango Groovers, I have found that one of the participants has a similar quasi-fondness for this film. That said, I figured this was the perfect inspiration to take yet another look at the film and re-evaluate it. Now everyone knows that Michael Bay has been accused of over-the-top action and effects. Further, his films are replete with some stupid dialog/sequences and hot actresses but he just keeps making them. But above all, they’re popcorn films and I actually enjoy a handful of them. To me, no other film on his resume screams “over-the-top” than his futuristic flick The Island (yes even more so than Transformers).
