Something got messed up overnight. I woke up this morning and my knee was killing me. It’s only gotten worse throughout the day. I am icing and elevating, but the pain is incredible. It feels like somebody took a bat to my left knee. The troubling thing is I have no idea how this happened. I just woke up in pain.
After watching Equilibrium last night, I watched my other movie that was due back at Blockbuster today.
Rapa Nui is a ridiculous movie that doesn’t take itself too seriously. The story of high adventure, class warfare and romance on Easter Island before the arrival of Europeans is a flimsy concoction. But I like it. Maybe the hundreds of bare-chested women milling about has something to do with it. Or maybe its the hilarious dialogue, especially between the high priest and aged king. But once the climactic race starts to retrieve an undamaged bird’s egg from a nearby island, all complaints melt away. It’s exciting, even if it doesn’t make much sense.
The movie is a guilty pleasure. Hell, even Roger Ebert admits to that.
