Friday Aug 30th am

Saw the movies  Pain and Gain, Dark Matter, Narc   last night.  Two were tv edits, one was an on demand rental.

Pain and Gain-  rented
Hated it.  It was about three body builders in the mid-90's who kidnap this guy and torture him for his money. Then when they find themselves out of money, they do it again to a couple, but end up killing them.
Based on a true story and starring the Rock. 
The trailer made it look like a really good comedy about three bumbling crooks. But, it was just a really bad movie. 

Dark Matter- tv edit
Another true story about a student who is hired to help make computer designs of a professor's theories. The pressure becomes too much for him and he has a mental breakdown.
I didn't care for this one either.  TV edits are sometimes difficult to follow if they have been chopped up too much, and I don't know if that was just the case with this, or if it just really didn't make any sense in the telling of it?
It was a really dry story, no emotion. But again, might have been the tv edit factor. This was a Meryl Streep movie, so I was really looking forward to it but...

Narc- tv edit
Now, this one I liked.
It was about two undercover cops who are looking into the death of another cop because of a drug ring.
I like cop movies/dramas in general, and usually no matter how badly it gets chopped for tv, they tend to be watchable. Jason Patric (Lost Boys) starred in this one.

till later
