Carey ...I see Reign of Fire as a "period piece" because it does not deal with the present or the present as we know it. There had to be great thought as to the costuming to give us an understanding of the time and situation of the story. I wish I could put my finger on what was missing, all I know is that I came away from the movie without a sense of closure or great understanding. There just seemed to be holes in the story that I thought should have been sewed up. I'll have to watch it again to get into specifics. OOOHHH, there is one thing that I do remember, aside from the opening suspense with the dragon coming out of the hole, I thought the movie was WAY too predictable. But, on the other hand, I LOVE Matthew McConaughey. He is one of those actors that get placed on the "cute white boy" shelf in my never to be humble opinion. I suppose I took issue with his shaved head. I'm not much on blonde hair but Good Lawd! I like that man's golden-tossled look!
Carey (you KNOW this actually means Miss Ann), I haven't read a non-teaching book in almost over a year (save The Portable Promised Land which I loved), hep a sista out and give me ONE good read to go out and get this weekend.
AND ... I'm ba-ack!
Thump ... it's ta bonne fée, honey... I'm out! ...lol
