Watching Movies

I rented a couple of movies from Red Box on Friday night, I'm loving Red Box and there is one right outside the Foods Co store that is near the little postal annex that I walk to most days, so it's really convenient and cheap and I don't even have to go inside the store.

So what did we watch?

2012. Which has some great special effects but other than that kind of stunk. I was getting bored with it towards the end and was rooting for the tsunami to just drown everybody already. Disaster movies always have to get all preachy and oh the humanity and can't we all just get along and the whole thing with the gate not closing and the one guy getting squished in the gears and the hero having to go unstick the gears and they are on a collision course with the mountain and if they don't close the gate everyone is going to die and I just didn't care anymore at that point.

It does kind of make you wonder with all these earthquakes recently, but if the world is going to end in 2012 there is not a whole heck of a lot we can do about it and if you're going to build yourself an ark you'd better get started now.

Law Abiding Citizen was much much better, a little on the gruesome side, but a good thriller that kept you guessing.

Watching movies was probably the most exciting part of our weekend. We are boring boring people.

We watched 2012 last night and we liked it. It was a little odd in parts and i thought that some of it was pretty funny.

I haven't seen 2012 yet, but I have to admit with all these natural disasters happening lately it does make me wonder. but then it's like you said, there isn't much we can do about it either, so I try not to sweat it. but i've surely thought about it. ha! :)
