The Day After Tomorrow
I used to like this guy for his acting and for his movies. Then I saw him in The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and realized he was cute! And that was really the reason why I chose to watch The Day After Tomorrow. Oh man. I swear, if it wasn't for Jake Gyllenhaal, I would have walked out of the theater. It was that bad! I mean, okay, the movie had something to say, that if we don't watch what we're doing, nature's going to give us a really hard time. But the way they told this was very, very faulty.

1. Bad acting. It almost felt like the actors were all there because they needed the money because I never really got a sense of what their characters were like. And then when the movie was about to end, it seemed like the actors realized that and tried to "remedy the situation" but fell flat on their faces. It was almost like they were thinking, "It's just another natural disaster movie. People won't be paying attention to us. It's okay if our acting sucks a bit." Dude, that's not an excuse, that's a cop-out. And that's really sad.

2. Bad directing. It had no flow whatsoever. I think the director relied too much on the computer to make his movie work, which is never a good thing. Unless it's an animated movie. But it's not.

3. Bad script. Everything was pretty unbelievable, that's a given. But a concept that could actually happen, that's true. But the writer built it up so much it came off as fake. There were so many loose ends, I don't know where to begin. And the part with the wolves? Omigoodness! Every bit of plot was so forced and was so much of a cop-out. The whole thing was cop-out!

Argh! Can you tell this movie really frustrates me? It's so insulting, really.

Hay naku. Whatever na nga.
