Today's unexpected day off thrown into chaos when, upon sitting down to start checking my e-mail, the power goes off. OK, fine. M. and I plot in the dark (we live underground) and decide to head to zee mall. Get some fast food, run a few errands (yes, we're splurging, or at least our current version of it,) pick up a prezzie for tze bebe, and hit the theater.
Children of Men is pretty darn good. No, seriously. I'm a big fan of the dystopian future, and man, this is a grim one. Good stuff. More action-y than I expected. Well, not really action, but, yeah. A lot of other interesting inferences and references. Well worth catching.
* The Hills Have Eyes 2 - teaser trailer, but, whatever. I didn't even catch the remake last year.
* The Curse of the Golden Flower - ah, Lords of the Rings-style epic battle scenes, but in ancient China. Sign me up.
* Breach - based on the true story of Robert Hanssen! How... peculiar. We'll see how the writing is, because that's what's gonna make or break this one.
