Last night I was watching (in the stadium, not on TV) my Houston Dynamo beat Philly and move on to the conference finals. Go Dynamo!

Nothing wrong with watching Jennifer Garner.

Elizabeth: The Golden Age

Overall, not the most emotionally involving movie, but it had some good performance moments, and it may be the epitome of lavish and ornate costumes and sets. Soooo pretty to look at in high-def. I'd recommend the double feature Blu-ray set (Elizabeth and Elizabeth: The Golden Age) which is going for $10.99 on Amazon.com right now based on the visuals alone. The audio was actually pretty decent as well. A lot of the time quieter period pieces can seem more impressive just because it's not beating you over the head with the sound. Nice atmosphere throughout, and when the cannons on the ships got to firing, it was appropriately jarring.

I'm slightly broken. There are moments, but the characters tend to exasperate me. This could be mitigated with better direction, but I have problems with the heavy hand. I find the device of having the characters converse with the dead a bit tedious, and it's never quite as profound or funny as it wants to be. Still, I'm going to continue watching for a while and see if my opinion changes. My friend, Jen, really likes it, and after she's liked all of the shows I've subjected her to, I feel the need to react positively to one of her favorites.

Thanks. Placed my order for the Elizabeth double set. I've got both of them on dvd, but have been wanting it on blu-ray. I've seen the first movie in bestbuy's 7.99 bin, almost bought it a couple of days ago, when I replaced my blu-ray player. Seems I replace this thing about once a year. I'm on my 4th blu-ray player now.

Apparently, I'm broken in some of the same ways as Charles, whose insightful review of Six Feet Under was marvelous.

I recorded the Rush Time Machine 2011 special on Palladia this weekend. Looking forward to watching it.

Chuck used to be amusing. I'm not sure what their shark-jumping moment was, but it happened.

A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas

Pretty entertaining. I'm glad they fully embraced how hokey 3D is. It made it more fun.

I watched "Atlas Shrugged, Part 1" last night. Movie was a bit hard to follow what was going on in places. Mostly a slow paced movie. The train noises were good and loud though (not a total loss I guess). The ending left me wondering what happened and why.

It's been a good 20 years since I've read the book, so I really don't remember what I read that long ago.

Super 8

I saw it in the theater with my sister a while ago. I thought it was decent, but not really a jaw-dropper. My opinion hasn't changed terribly, but I do think I liked it more this second time around on Blu-ray. Maybe the better audio at home makes a difference. The kids did act well, had good chemistry.
