Quick Spoiler-Free Movie Update

Last night, I finally saw "The Village". Yes, it's got plenty of twists. It still worked for me, and I really liked the tone of most of the film. The use of music was really effective. 4 out of 5.

This afternoon, I saw "Garden State". Wow! It's the best film about taking control of your life and growing up that I've seen in a while. Lots of quirk, but not as self-indulgent as "Napoleon Dynamite". Natalie Portman played her character less maturely than I expected. I liked the supporting cast a lot. The sound mix wasn't very polished, but the soundtrack had lots of great choices. 4.5 out of 5.
