Children of Men

Children of MenThis weekend, Holly and I saw Children of Men. Great movie. I know I'm writing this the night of the Oscar's, but I loved this movie. I still think Little Miss Sunshine should win (at this time at 10:51 PM ET, it hasn't).

But, Children of Men is a great movie. My only complaint is that there were some slow spots and the movie felt long. But, even after investing a (seemingly) long time with this picture, it was worth it.

Holly and I both said: "I keep forgetting his name or what he's done, but it seems like everytime I see a movie with Clive Owen, I like him."

This movie was great. Everything from the writing, the action, the scenery and, especially, the acting were great. Michael Caine's part was (somewhat) small, but, as usual, he was... oh, I don't know, knight-like.

What if every women in the world couldn't have children? What if the last birth was 18+ years ago and the end world was seemingly "our lifetime" away. What if after 18 years, one women was pregnant?

Not the "Best Picture", but a great movie. I like these "armageddon" movies like "28 Days Later."
