There will be some point...

Call us behind the times, but Wendy and I finally got around to watching There Will Be Blood. Could not pass up all the critical acclaim, let alone one of the best tittles in awhile. I agree that Daniel Day Lewis' acting was top notch. He really worked the role well. This said, I thought the film was incredibly long and without purpose. The music was cool at times, but at other times, the music seemed to be trying to hard. You know when a film score is too over the top...that they are trying to make the film sound more dramatic than it is. Come on, the films about oil. Four to five hours of oil. I think I fell asleep for a few hours, woke up, watched a few hours and they were still in the same scene they were when I fell asleep. I was disappointed for the shear fact that I was waiting for the film to end. I was not engaged. i was not tricked by the clever music and scenery. After admiring Daniel's acting, I felt like I had nothing else to do the rest of the nine gazillion hours of film. I will wait with baited breath for the sequel....The Blood Will Scab Over...uncut directors edition. Oh boy.
