Well… this being the first weekend following the wrap of a show, I found myself slightly down. I had to work Friday night (only to come home and watch the Bombers get sent home by the Rangers… but it IS their first time EVER in the World Series… but really how long is that). Saturday, I had the entire day to myself… so I watched the Buckeyes dominate the Purdue Boilermakers and some season one Bionic Woman (the original and best). It’s about time both bionic series got out of legal brouhaha and finally are being released on DVD (Six Mill is set to be released next month). Finally, I went to church Saturday night.
Sunday, saw work, room cleaning (funny how messy a room can get after three months), and fun with friends. Mare sent me a text early in the afternoon asking if I wanted to go with other friends to see Paranormal Activity 2. I did not hear very glowing reviews of the original so I went expecting little but with great friends, it was worth it. I do not remember ever laughing so much at a “horror” film but some of the things involved were just so hokey that at times, I wanted to crack up especially the loud comments made by other moviegoers. I will say that one of the biggest complaints that I have heard about the previous film was the slow pace and the fact that anything scary did not happen until the last 20 minutes of the film. I will say there was a great amount of creepiness. Not the best suspenseful movie ever but if you go in with limited expectations surrounded by friends going out for a good time…
Some of the coming attractions:
- Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I (I’m sure a certain nephew of mine will be hitting me up for that one) REALLY looking forward to this one. Interested to see where they divide the film.
- Yogi Bear… I think the main draw is Justin Timberlake as Boo Boo. But Dan Aykroyd is playing the “smarter than average bear.”
- The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (The third movie in the Chronicles of Narnia series). I wasn’t even aware that this was coming. An eventual viewing will be in order.
- No preview of Tron:Legacy I’m sorry to say.
So… all in all an enjoyable weekend!
