So I saw King Kong and Syriana this weekend.

I think I could write much about both. But I won't. I will say that both of them do an excellent job of exploring the evolution and continuation of corruption.

King Kong was surprisingly cool and engaging. I was hesitant. Giant ape falling in love with blond girl just didn't appeal. But it plays with the themes of beauty, mystery and corruption really well. And there were scenes that took my breath away because they were so intense.

Syriana was a good political thriller. My favorite part was how they told the story, because it followed the lives of different people and brought them all together in the end. It was very complex and intriguing (isn't that supposed to be a good review word?).
