The Weather Man
When I first saw this trailer, I knew I had to see this movie. I thought I knew exactly what to expect.
Not so much.
The result isn't, by any means, bad... just different.
The film is beautiful portrait of Chicago in winter. It has some of the most awesome cinematography I've seen in awhile, especially for a film dealing with Real Life and one that avoids submitting to artsy pretension. Nicolas Cage and Micheal Caine are awesome and perfectly suited for their roles; their scenes together are great. I also very much enjoyed the score (Hans Zimmer); it's quirky and it fits.
The dialogue, unlike the plot, is very well indicated by the trailer. Cage's voice over is well worth the movie ticket.
I just very much enjoyed the 'everyday beauty' feel to the film. It's not a remarkable story about remarkable people; it's very laid back, and that's why I liked it.
