Law-Abiding Citizen

Given that it was a Saturday night and I was actually not busy, what better way to spend it than with a wonderful old friend and a good movie? Honestly, it doesn't get much better than that after a long week of conferences, clubbing, and crying.

We were supposed to see Paranormal Activity, but because it was sold out, we watched Law-Abiding Citizen instead.

It was a well-made movie, balancing furious action with "omg what the f*ck is going on" suspense, and smart dialogue with smart ass banter.

While this may be a standard action/law flick, it wasn't entirely predictable. You're watching the plot of a total psycho unfold, and as such, you have no idea what to expect. I mean, the guy is a flippin' NUT, thus his actions are most unexpected. Jamie Foxx is excellent as always, making the a smooth transition from detached worker of the law to a furious, justice seeking badass. Gerard Butler also did a great job. His acting was subtle in that you could catch a flicker of sanity as he remembered his family and felt a shiver of terror when you saw his total lack of morality. It was just so REAL at times. You keep bouncing back and forth between rooting for the law (which we all secretly hate), to rooting for Clyde, despite his seriously disturbed methods of fighting The Man.

Bottom line: this is a movie worth seeing.

It makes you question the law, it makes you question the stability of your mind, and it makes you question what happens when you die. A triple threat, right?

And now it is time for me to yawn loudly and return to watching the Yankees vs. Angels.

viva la vida

There are not enough hours in the day, and not enough days in the week, to post the brilliant onslaught of bloggage that I wished to smother you with.

Sarcasm runs abundant in the previous sentence, by the way.


I have some great posts I would like to eventually publish but as it stands, my schedule is too hectic to forge out even a smattering of witticisms.

However, this weekend may actually be a tame one (HA who am I kidding...), or at least, there may be a few hours come Saturday or Sunday, for me to post something worth reading.

So stay tuned! It'll be here!

I have just wasted a good minute or so of your life.

Have a good day!
