I am inspired in this moment by a recent facebook post by my good friend Shawn. Hence, I begin a series of posts about movies I've seen and enjoyed, despite their possession of all the earmarks of lameness. Buckle thine seatbelts, gang.
Pathfinder - 2007, starring Karl Urban (of Star Trek and Lord of the Rings fame )
Here's what the critics had to say:
"Bombastic action rescues monotonous Pathfinder."
- Boston Globe
Both 'monotonous' and 'bombastic' in the same sentence! That's reason enought to watch, right?
"...a bizarre, bloody adventure movie..."
- Chicago Tribune
Who doesn't love bizarre and/or bloody andventure movies?
- New York Post
Yep. It was.
"All grunting, all goring, the witless action flick Pathfinder has little to recommend it..."
-New York Times
This one's my fave. 'grunting and goring' - brilliant. 'witless action flick'. Mmm, the words go down so smoothly!
That one's in the books. Please don't think less of me!
