It looks like that lately I am watching the movies that inspired Grand Theft Auto. Yesterday it was Gone in Sixty Seconds, with car boosting, racing the police, et al. Today, Drop Zone, with parachute diving, namely into a moving truck. Nothing I didn’t do before… in GTA.

Well, regarding the movie, it is yet another typical argument. But enjoyable. Action with humour and a girl. What else a guy wants? Ah, some more action, and some more jokes. Good for a last day of the year evening.

Bubble (2005)

A strange movie. Accordingly with some comments on IMDB, it was filmed by non-authors (that explain a lot, both on good and bad acting), using these people houses, clothes and lives as base for the movie. The story is told very slowly. Just the end is mostly let to the watcher to think about. Not really my type of movie. Nevertheless, I can’t classify it as a bad movie. There is a plot, a correct sequence of events, with some interesting sound track, all this with an interesting way of telling the story.

And I couldn’t let this pass without posting a shot of one of the characters bedroom. Note the poster.
