THE ROAD
FIRST 10 MINUTES
I gotta start by admitting something right off the bat: I did read Cormac McCarthy's novel The Road, but I didn't think it was the second coming that everyone else seemed to think it was. I certainly liked it, but it just didn't think it was as important and monumental and devastating as the hype led me to believe.
That said, so far I like the movie more than I expected to. Not a whole lot has happened so far, but I think the movie does a good job of putting you in the post-apocalyptic mood, and that's really all that needs to happen in the first ten minutes of this type of movie.
I am gonna keep watching. Even though I know what happens, I'm curious to see how the movie handles everything.
FOLLOW-UP
So I did watch the whole thing, and I did like it. I'm not gonna say that it's better than the book, a movie rarely is. However, because I was expecting so much from the book, I was probably destined to be disappointed, and inversely, I was expecting to be disappointed by the book, but found that it did about as good a job as a movie can in capturing the feeling of the book. If you're into bleak post-apocalyptic movie fare, then it's definitely worth watching.
FIRST 10 MINUTES
I was really tired tonight. I mean, REALLY tired. And the color palette of this movie (there is no color) put me right to sleep. I didn't really care about this one too much, so I don't really give a crap.
JESS SLEEP METER
(Bri: A new record for sleepy-head. I had to wake her up to write her impressions of the first "ten" minutes.)
FOLLOW-UP
I slept really well.
