Movies

Last week we took Lorelei to the movies for the first time. No it wasn’t some kiddy movie, we saw 21, a rather boring film about card counters and gambling casinos. Kevin Spacey phoned in his performance, the young stars were a loathsome bunch, and I’m not exactly what Larry Fishburne was doing besides collecting a paycheck. Bleh.

Monday I rented a passel of videos. Monday night we watched Things We Lost In The Fire. Very good movie, powerful and depressing. Two thumbs up.

Last night we watched I Am Legend and Into The Wild. I Am Legend was okay. Funny how realistic yet fake the desolation of Manhattan seemed. And those vampire/zombies. Phony baloney. But not that bad for a blockbuster movie.

Into The Wild was very nice. I enjoyed it. I read Krakauer’s Outside article back in 19-forgotten, and the “Into the Wild” follow up book. Great movie. Great photography. Great music by Eddie Vedder. Cool. Check out this movie.

Tonight – well I will let you know.
