Watched The Island with Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johannsen a couple of nights ago, and my husband and I are still talking about it off and on. I know it's an "action" movie, but I thought the story was pretty good. I like futuristic stuff, like Brave New World and Nineteen Eighty-Four and Soylent Green, and this fit in nicely. Michael Bay, the director, also directed Pearl Harbor, which I thought was horrible. But this was pretty good. I especially appreciated the birth scene of one of the clones. The doctor was so rough and unfeeling, just like most doctors are with newborns.
