The Ramblings of a Damaged Mind
I have the jones to see a movie tonight - get out of the house, get some dinner, catch a flick. Just to not sit home.

So of course it looks like all the movies out now SUCK! Well, I've heard mixed things about 'Love Actually', though even if it is OK I'm not sure it is really a fun movie to go see alone. And since I don't know who the hell I could round up to go, I expect this to be alone. I was kind of in the mood for some kind of action or sci-fi, but Timeline looks like it completely blows from all the reviews and comments I've heard. And the previews I've seen left me totally uninspired. I hear Elf is funny but, well, 97 minutes of Will Ferrell in an elf suit might be too much. Most of the previews I saw for it seem to indicate the humor hinges on Will acting like a naive fool. While I find that amusing in small doses, like in Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back, I don't know if I could handle a whole movie based on it. I've seen Revolutions, several weeks ago, at some point maybe I'll toss in my two cents.

I may end up seeing Master & Commander, that's the only film out now I've really heard good things about and it seems to have a fair bit of action. Not quite what I was hoping to see, but it seems to be the best choice. So the options seem to be staying home or seeing that.

Love Actually is dorky.

Bad Santa is good.

i actually went to see Master & Commander relutctantly, my friend dragged me to it...it was one of those types of movies that I thought would be kinda boring and stuff...and I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed it. :)

Timeline looks like it completely blows

A Michael Crichton movie? bad? There's a reason I stopped reading his books when Timeline came out. I just got sick of Hollywood ruining everything he put to print.

Have you seen Kill Bill Vol. 1 yet? (Or is that still in theaters anymore?) It's several different kinds of good. Nothing like a Tarantino movie to get the blood pumping...

...and splattering all over the place...

Rotten Tomatos is a decent place to go for finding out what flicks currently playing are worth seeing. Because the average of a zillion different critics can't be wrong, right? (As long as you apply some mental filters anyway, like adding about 20% to the average ratings of action movies to adjust for anti-action bias.)

For a good dose of silly, see Looney Tunes.

Yeah, I do want to see it, but I need to get out early - around her it seems they aren't showing it in the evening.

I loved Love Actually. It was really good. However, I do agree it's a bit of a date movie. The guys I know who have seen it have enjoyed it (or that's all they'll admit to)
