Go See The Island

No, really. It’s awesome. BEAUTIFULLY shot, intense, enjoyable, and probably the best production design i’ve seen in a film lately. I didn’t even want someone to hit Scarlett Johanson in the head… much. Sitting in the theater, I couldn’t help thinking that it’s a shame that director/producer Michael Bay gets such short shrift from the Hollywood elite (despite DESTROYING everyone at the box office). The again, The Island is one of the few films I recall him doing that didn’t have Jerry Bruckheimer producing, and if this film is any evidence of what Bay can offer as his own producer (or what an absent Bruckheimer does to change the overall film) then I hope to see more of a solo Michael Bay.

What a great movie. (And bonus points for a V For Vendetta trailer. Sweet action).
