Movie Watch! - Meet the Robinsons and Band of Outsiders

I can't believe I've seen so many movies this week...

1) Meet the Robinsons (2007) - Disney without Pixar is like Sonny without Cher. There was a certain cohesive logic and sense of intrigue lacking from the script. This was no Finding Nemo. I didn't care about any of the characters and they were fairly bland for the amount of "loud" that was put into them. It just felt like a lot of the typical Pixar love was lacking from this. It was boring. 5/10

2) Band of Outsiders (Bande à part) (1964) - Jean-Luc Godard makes an interesting French take on the sleazy American robber novels of the early 1900s. Surprisingly fresh, even today, it really picks up steam towards the end. No wonder one of the best clothing brands out right now used this title for their name. 8/10
