Thought I wouldn’t have any internet access tonight, but, lo-and-behold, the neighbors have an open wireless network. Thanks, neighbors. Evening of fun with my nephew went pretty well — we really only had about two hours together, maybe a little less, because he went to bed (for the second time, and for good) at 8:30 — which means he didn’t get to watch the end of Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle , but I’ll catch him up on it in the morning.
There’s a sharp contrast right now in the, hm, genre? taste? of the movies I’ve seen so far in the cinema this year and those I’ve seen on video.
On video, last three (only three, actually):
1. Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgandy
3. Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle
In theaters, just saw:
13. A Very Long Engagement.
And tomorrow, barring hell or high water: 14. Vera Drake.
What can I say? I’d much rather see Racing Stripes again that watch Wimbledon another time, but my sister rented it and so, it was free. Also, Harold & Kumar really made me laugh. I compare it, sort of, to a cross between Office Space and Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Van Wilder. I have Punch Drunk Love out to watch sometime in the next week, as well, and I’m really going to do it, this time.
