Invisible Logic

I saw the movie The Invisible. It was bad. Really bad. It's filled with plot holes. I have not seen a movie this poorly developed in a very long time. And I've seen some bad ones. Characters do things with no apparent motivation. The movie makes you ask "why?" But don't wait for the answers. I'm all for suspension of disbelief, but this one passes the threshold too much too often. Any answers you do get are one-dimensional and unimaginative. Worst of all, I spent much of the movie hoping that what I suspected would happen wouldn't. Because it would be ridiculous. But no they didn't spare me. Watching it on DVD, my friend Shane and I were reeling. We'd yell why is this happening. Most disappointing to me is how misleading the trailer turned out to be. The trailer touts that the main guy (Justin Chatwin) will have to solve the mystery of his death. There's no mystery as the circumstances are given up right away. Don't worry though, the scenes with the old man from the trailer explaining this are omitted. I didn't expect a great movie even with that trailer, but it was still horrifyingly worse than I could have imagined. The tough girl is touted as a victim of circumstance, but I didn't see any reason to feel sorry for her. There's no heroism in caring about those who care about you, it's much more moving to care about those who don't. Skip it!

If you didn't notice, there was a new episode of the SketcheeBook Podcast last week. The next new one will go out this Tuesday! I'm having some problems with the audio recording quality that I didn't have before. Hopefully I can get them squared away soon. For these two episodes, it will have to do.
