Cheryl and I spent the day today shopping our hearts out with our Christmas money. We decided before Christmas even arrived that any money we received for Christmas was going straight into our clothing allowance.
On top of money, we also received some sweet passes to Edwards Cinema (which just so happens to be right next-door to the outlets) so we ended the evening with a little date to the movies.
Both of us have wanted to see “I am Legend” and were excited to finally sit down and find out what it is all about. The trailers were intriguing enough.
I think we both came out super captivate by the ideas and images of the movie, but the ending… well, I think both of us would have much rather seen the movie go on for another hour or just some other ending.
We were both on edge the entire movie. Honestly, this is the first time I’ve ever watched a movie that I was so worked up as to what was going to happen next that as soon as the movie was over I could actually begin to feel myself breathing deeper again and my body begin to relax. It was surely suspenseful, and lots of fun action, and an interesting story line. But, I’ve NEVER seen a movie come to such a climax, and then just end… poof… done… no room for a continued story line, everything wrapped up, action comes to an end, you can go home now. No real possibility for a sequel. That’s still tripping me out a little bit.
I don’t know if I would recommend seeing this movie or not. It was an AWESOME movie, but the ending just killed it for me. If anyone reading this has seen this movie, or if you go watch it, please come back here and leave a comment with your thoughts, cause I’d like to know what others thought about the ending.
Oh, and by the way it still trips me out a bit to watch the Fresh Prince of BelAire acting in seriously roles and doing a darn good job of it. I wonder if Will Smith would have thought of himself doing this kind of acting back in the day.
