The Day After Tommorrow was a good movie. (**spoilers ahead, be warned **) I'm amazed how many people were there to see it at 4pm on a Saturday afternoon. It was definately a bit disturbing, but not too much so. I didn't make me want to give up my car and all my other conviencies, but it did make me think taking up Spanish and investing in cold weather clothes might be a good idea. Okay just kidding on that. But the special effects were awesome, and watching the weather destroy New York really was disturbing, and while the tornados in LA were cool, they also made the Californinas look like idiots. I mean 5 tornadoes touch down and instead of getting cover and gettting out of the way, they just stand there watching?? Hello, danger, flying cars? Get out of the way stupid people? And then Sela Ward's character? Where was she, everyone else is gone yet she manages to have power and an ambulence gets her to where exactly?, that they aren't frosty snow people like the rest of the Eastern Seaboard? But that aside, I would recommend seeing it. The idea beyond it is based in real science, but they did take a few creative liberties with it, for the sake of entertainment. And it does give a chilling, if not sanitized movie view of how people react in disaster of a planetary scale. I would however have liked to see more of what was happening in the rest of the world, and parts of the country besides, NY CA (specifically LA), and TX (as everyone tries to break into Mexico). And there was one plot hole. When they first show people running into Mexico, they announce that Mexico has closed its borders and isnt' allowing anyone in. Yet in the end, when the Dick Chaney look alike has becoem President after Perry King got ICQ'd, he announces that Mexico and other third world countries have been great hosts taking in American refugee's. (If anybody is wondering Great Britian becomes an Ice cap, so to speak). That aside the acting was pretty decent, and the backgrounds were great. Go see it .
Speaking of weather, the climate gods didn't read my missive on the rain going away. Its pretty unerving when you come out of movie about climitalogical catashrophe (say that ten times fast) and it is pouring rain like water out of a bucket, yet AGAIN. If we get much more rain, people are going to need to trade in their wheels for pontoons.
Did manage to get a few load of laundry done, but I still havea huge mountain to climb. I also managed to find some decent priced shoes that Big Foot (aka Warren my son) will wear and I can live with. I also picked up a few cleaning supplies and walked out $50 poorer for my trouble. The things I go thru for the privledge of blue toilet water and a lemon scented kitchen.
Then tonight I met Calthea at B&N (too lazy to link) for some great fun grown up time, or it was until Warren decided to skip the cheese and go straight for the whine. But I now have a copy of the Insider. (Thanks a billion girl!!). It looks like next year is the year of the remakes. Okay Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with Johnny Depp and Tim Burton has possibilites but Nicole Kidman ina big screen version of Bewitched?? I think I'll pass. The world does not need another Jurassic Park sequel, but Green Hornet could have possiblities depending on casting. I'm just counting days till next weekend when Harry Potter opens, then I, Robot the next week (I think).. have I mentioned I love Will Smith, he totally cracks me up and he is just cool. Then Chronicles of Riddick, which looks cook (and since its Vin Diesel I know my son will HAVE TO see it). By then I think I will be movied out for a while. But hopefully it will hold me until the biggest release of all, May 2005, And Episode III: tall Darth and Handsome, or whatever cheesy Saturday morning serial title we'll all hate till it grows on us name Uncle George will coem up with. Only 11 months to go.
