Movie Meme Day 05 - A movie you loathe
I'm sure I'll get a few haters for this, but a recent movie I loathe is There Will Be Blood. I know it was nominated for a Best Picture Oscar and Daniel Day-Lewis won the Oscar for his performance. And if a best performance Oscar is won for being as much unlike yourself while playing a character, I suppose he deserved it. As for the movie, I think the harsh soundtrack of insects buzzing and almost no dialogue for the first hour, and then lots of insanity for the rest did not make for an enjoyable movie experience. Paul Dano was odd as the preacher, and I will confess to using the "I drink your milkshake" quote on occasion. However, that final scene was so out of place with the rest of the movie, it could have been from something else. I'm not a fan of P.T. Anderson's films in general, so I couldn't see what he was trying to do with There Will Be Blood. That's all I'll devote to a movie I loathe.
