Let-down

December 24th, 2008 | Category: Life

I gather they’re re-airing the TAL episode, as I’m getting lots of new readers.

Wow, you people must be pretty fucking let-down. I’m sorry about that, on many levels.

Midnight mass

December 24th, 2008 | Category: Life

Every single year, my family goes to midnight mass to ring in Christmas. This year, I think I’d rather eat glass, or read Dune than sit in church. I just don’t feel it. I also have absolutely no idea how to escape it.

Perhaps Kitty Jesus will show me the way, but I seriously doubt it, being that I’m not a kitty. I know Regular Jesus definitely won’t help me. Santa’s pretty useless too. I suppose death, taxes and midnight mass are just inevitable.

The Life Before Her Eyes

December 24th, 2008 | Category: Opinions

Sometimes I stumble upon random little movies on iTunes, I buy them on a whim and hope for the best. I usually have really good luck, Lonesome Jim, Wristcutters: A Love Story, both excellent. Idiocracy, however, was almost as painful as reading Dune. Honestly, I like my Russian-roulette approach to movie buying, it has yet to kill me.

The Life Before Her Eyes is my most recent spin, and I definitely wasn’t disappointed. It’s the story of two high school girls who are confronted by a fellow student gunning his way through the building. He says that he’s only going to kill one of the two best-friends, but they have to decide which. The film then flashes forward to show the life of the surviving girl, a life that slowly unravels.

The film is gorgeously shot and well-acted, Uma Thurman playing the guilt-plagued survivor. The story has a twist, and while the twist didn’t particularly surprise me, I don’t at all regret watching. It was definitely worth the random purchase.
