Zodiac

I should write about this before I forget.

Saw this Friday night with and .
It’s a long movie, but pretty well paced. It didn’t really feel like 2 3/4 hours, but there were some scenes that were just too long.
One of the murder scenes come to mind.

But there’s so much going on here that I kinda got confused. It really doesn’t help that I’m crap with names. They almost need a little face flasher everytime they mention someone.
That would be dumbing it down though, and that’s not good.

I remember watching various TV shows about the Zodiac killer, but most of that is distant memory, and things got skewed.
I thought he had killed a lot more people, but apparently not.
I also thought he went on a shooting spree in a park, but that could have been Dirty Hairy(of which the main villain is based off the Zodiac)(which was in the movie).

Overall I thought it was really well acted and shot, and it kept you in your seat, but not on the edge.
It wasn’t designed to, and had they gone that route, it would have been terrible.

The movie is based off the book of the same title, and revolves around the author(which makes sense). That little side story is also cool as it shows the authors complete and utter obsession with the killer.
I suspect it would make for a really good read.

So I say go watch it.

Sorry, I’m just tired right now, and I should have written this when I was a little more awake.
But it is really good.
