Seven Pounds

Krista surprised me with a night away, so we stayed at Bridge Street last night, saw a couple movies, did some Christmas shopping, and just hung out. (Thanks, Nana and NeeNee!)

One of the films we saw was Seven Pounds. It's one of those movies you can't go into knowing very much about the film - and it looks like the they did the marketing with that in mind. Will Smith is a great actor with amazing depth (I thought Hancock was a pretty good movie, too), and this film is fascinating. Seven Pounds is intense, thought provoking, non-linear, and one of those movies that you talk about for days after you've seen it. It gets a little slow in the middle in a couple of spots, and you can't go in expecting a feel-good Christmas movie, but if you can deal with those things, I think you'll be blown away.
