And I will entertain no thoughts of substance.
Therefore I will be watching movies.
I saw Apocalypto. I liked the running part. You know, when they ran.
Speaking of Mel Gibson, Lethal Weapon was on Cinemax last night. I had forgotten what an awesome and awesomely brutal movie it was. Really the ultimate eighties action film.* [update: No, you know what, I saw it again and decided it sucks except for any scenes in the last twenty minutes involving Gary Busey.]
And Point Break** was on, too. Another of the maybe seven or eight great modern action films. [update: I saw Point Break again, too, and it only gets better. What a delightful movie.]
(A list which also includes: Die Hard With a Vengeance, Raiders of the Lost Ark [more an "adventure" than an "action" film, but still], maybe Speed, definitely Terminator 2 and Aliens...)
Also, Vizzini is trapped in Prague and becoming a danger to himself again.
* I love how they're called "action" films. I mean, they are, after all, "moving pictures."
** Kathryn Bigelow's Point Break is the most underrated action film. It contains not only what I consider the single most pleasing chase scene ever filmed (Keanu Reeves in pursuit of a tuxedoed bank robber in a Reagan mask), but also a climactic confrontation between skydivers (one with a parachute, one without) that is uniquely ingenious, at least in my viewing of action movies.
