Many things will happen in this post.
SO! Apologies for not posting the past week..... Life.... Happens. And gets in the way of the blogger. (me.) :)
The Bourne Legacy was seriously, amazingly awesome!
I loved it.
I will admit that when I first heard about it, I was a little nervous... I mean, how do you make a Jason Bourne movie without Jason Bourne?
Answer: You hire Jeremy Renner.
I think a lot of the die hard Bourne fans are dubious about it because the story was so unique, and they were worried that Bourne Legacy would just be a clone of the other three movies. It wasn't. They managed to make the characters completely different. The only thing Aaron Cross had in common with Jason Bourne was that he was part of the Treadstone project and he had sort of gone rogue. It was a little slower than the rest of the Bourne movies, but the action (I thought) was just as good.
I liked how Aaron Cross had a slightly more vulnerable side to him. He could be hard, he could fight, he could kill, but there was something a little more boyish to him than to Jason.
I was glad the romanced worked. There are some movies where it seems like there's a romance just because a movie must have romance. This one just happened and I approved.
The only part I was disappointed in was the chase scene. It was awesome, it was cool... but it was a tiny bit over the top. It reminded me more of a Die Hard chase scene than a Bourne one. It wasn't really necessary and it felt like they only put it in because Bourne Movies Always Have An Epic Chase Scene.
SO yeah. It's a really awesome film. I agree that it wasn't quite as good as the original Bourne trilogy, but... Jeremy Renner made it equal to them in my eyes. He's a fantastic actor and I'm definitely going to buy it when it comes out on DVD. (Let's hope that the rumors are true and in the next one Aaron Cross and Jason Bourne team up. Can you imagine the epic-ness?)
I was going to post the Piano Guys doing their Bourne cover, but decided against it because everyone posts that with their Bourne Legacy review.
I'm stealing the video my sister did on her blog instead.
I finished watching the first season of Doctor Who.
My little sister is officially against David Tennant. She'd become very, very fond of Christopher Eccleston's Doctor and is under the opinion that David's is not right. She said, "He's not the Doctor! He needs to shave his head!"
I think the same thing goes for Doctor Who as goes with the original Star Treks: You have to go with it and use your imagination or you won't enjoy it.
I fear I am falling into the "Doctor Who Infatuation" pit.
I may have to draw the Tardis.
I love my doggehs.
Daisy.... Will never have puppies.
Daisy does not like the Cone of Shame.
How can they possibly make us wait until May 1st 2015 to make the Avengers assemble again??? Why would they do that to their most awesome fans? Why? Why!?
I think I am done blogging for today. I can't say when my next post will be, we have a fantastic BBQ planned for Sunday, and family visiting all next week. We shall have to see when I have free time next. :)
I need to stop using the word "fantastic"... people are going think I'm Doctor Who obsessed. **cough**
God bless, pepes!
