I went to the movies.

I went to the movies this weekend and saw two really good films.

The first was the cheap theater screening of 300. I was wary of this film because of all the hype and the strong visual treatment, but seeing how this was a mythic tale, it went well with the film.

The second movie was "knocked up" Everyone over 16 should see this movie. Good film.

It's interesting to note that upon reflection of the amazing cinematography in "300", I realized that I went through the entire 2 hrs of "knocked up" and never noticed a shot, angle, movement, or lighting setup. In retrospect I'd say that "knocked up" has the better cinematography. Not once was I taken out of the story - not once. That's what makes for good cinematography, telling the story.
