The long weekend was another opportunity to catch up on DVDs. We started with Hoodwinked, an alternative Little Red Riding Hood. I picked the villain early, but it was still fun to see how a hard-boiled police procedural style was combined with some unexpected plot twists. The second one was Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, which was very impressive. An alternative reality story of a dashing pilot, played by Jude Law, and an ambitious journalist, played by Gwyneth Paltrow, trying to save the world. Apparently most of the movie was filmed in front of blue screens, and most of the background generated using CGI.
