I will see you all tomorrow.
*** Update ***
I try to keep my religious beliefs to myself, but I am pretty firmly convinced that whoever decided that new DVD’s need to be shrinkwrapped and have that plastic damn tape adhered to every edge of the plastic cover making removing a new DVD a sisyphean ordeal has a special place in hell reserved for him/her. Right next to the jackass who decided that aspirin bottles need a plastic shrink-wrapped seal, a child safety lock, a seal over the container under the child safety cap, and then 3 inches of protective cotton stuffing, making pain relief from tequila hangovers almost impossible. Which is why I keep a hammer under my sink for just those occasions- there is more than one way into an aspirin bottle, I tell you.
*** Update #2 ***
Quick reviews- If you have seen the War of the Roses and are thinking about watching Mr. and Mrs. Smith, don’t. Jolie is still hot, but no one is hot enough for me to honestly recommend this. I didn’t finish the movie, and will try to watch it tomorrow when I am riding the exercise bike.
March of the Penguins– Everything that is right about movie making, in particular documentaries. While not as visually stunning as one of my all-time favorites, Winged Migration (which I really think sets the standard for this type of endeavor), March was amazing. I have long joked that I like Morgan Freeman’s voice so much I would enjoy listening to him recite the dictionary. I don’t think I am joking when I say that, anymore. There is just something about his voice that I really love. Amazing film, and a welcome addition to my collection.
BTW- If you enjoy documentaries/wildlife as much as I do, check out some of the IMAX films which you can buy for DVD. A lot of those are great. I have vvrtually every one, so if you want to know something about one before buying it, let me know. Personal favorites- Africa: The Serengeti, Ring of Fire (which I saw in an actual IMAX once), and Beavers. These are all family safe, if that is a concern.
