I'm now back at work after holiday break, and realizing it was a real perturbance of my daily routine. I was sick for a couple days, and then the holidays started, so I was also away from the gym. Today was my first day at the gym in a little over a week, and it feels great to have started the morning at the gym.
That being said, I feel like I never get to the movies anymore, and always regret not seeing more of the movies that come out in the theatres. I tend to wait until they come out on DVD, but not because I strictly prefer that.
I also saw a lot of movies on a bootleg movie site which I won;t link to for fear of contributing to its inevitable downfall, but I did see I Am Legend- I need to find the book. I also saw 28 Weeks Later on that site, and no sooner had I rolled my eyes and thought "oh great, I bet 28 Months later Is going to be super"
In the theatres:
Charlie Wilson's War- excellent and no wonder we've made a mess of postwar Iraq- we had practice in Afghanistan.
No Country for Old Men- Brutal, beautiful, insightful, and totally entertaining.
The Bucket List- while NY mag called it a typecast Jack Nicholson flick crossed with a typecast Morgan Freeman flick, I thought this was pretty entertaining. Emotional ending.
Walk Hard- Hilarious. A send-up of Ray and Walk the Line, the Dewey Cox story made me laugh hysterically a number of times. Nice perfromance from Tim Meadows.
A good break!
