Yep, no more phone posts for me for awhile.

Not very fulfilling, no one really cares, and they're difficult to transcribe actually. I feel like they should accomplish more or something.

Today I'm feeling ick because I'm a girl.
Yesterday we went to PF changs. Hadn't been there in quite awhile so it was nice to get those garlic noodles again.
I think I had two vodka sours, Karl had a couple of mixed drinks, then we had two jugs of sake (momokawa pearl unfiltered stuff which is strange but good) then we went across the street to the new muliplex where they have a full restaurant and bar, where we found additional alcohol.

Then we saw Dawn of the Dead in the "director's theatre" where there is assigned stadium seating and where we had *excellent* seats. No one talked. No one opened candy, babbled, had their cell phones go off, giigled at inappropriate moments, etc.

It was totally worth the extra buck and the movie was suprisingly good. I was impressed actually.

Today the plan had been that we'd do it all over again, but this time we'd go to the regular multiplex to see Hellboy. But hmm.. I dunno if I'm going to end up feeling up to that. Right now, I'm thinking it's a strong no.

We were hoping for loud, explosion filled and generally fun, nothing ground breaking or "best. movie. evar." territory.

Nothing too insulting, good effects...

nothing too ... "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" ..

Actually, I liked the phone posts... you've got a fun voice.

You're the first source I've seen with anything really positive to say about Dawn of the Dead. I had something possibly amusing to say about that, but Comcast ate it.

I've gotten everything from "you sound manly" to "you're squeaky like mickey mouse" about my voice.
very very very mood dependent.

As for the movie, if we'd gone into it expecting a full on, stand up to the original remake, we'd have been disappointed.
But we like zombie movies and it while it wasn't frightening, it certainly was very creepy and dark.

I haven't read too much into the reviews. Mainly becuase most of them start off with "first of all, zombies are supposed to be slow"... which is like saying "First of all, wolfman is supposed to have a plaid shirt and jeans". Who says? It's a movie. Lighten the fuck up.

If you like *fun*, creepy, gorey movies... this is good. The desaturation and the quick cuts work in the context and it's a lot more clever, a lot more interesting (and the characters are honestly more intelligent) than I would have expected. It's a nice update, but outside of the Romero style.

You're not squeaky. Subbes is squeaky.
