Twilight, MoneyBall

Saw two movies Sunday and Monday, Twilight and Moneyball respectively.

Twilight, of course was magnificent, though the story was definitely different than usual. Critics gave it a 7.5, but I'd give it at least an 8 / 10.

Moneyball was a very interesting sports story with compelling conflicts, a strong 7. Nevertheless, the plot did seem to recycle the same conflict repeatedly and the characters simply responded by keeping to their faith. This was a strange experience, but didn't take too much away from the film. The worst part were the dumb scenes when Billy Beane was driving around in his car, presumably burning off steam and obviously a whole lot of gas.

A strong movie weekend...
