Well, Adventurers, the 4th of July weekend (or as close to one as we're going to get, given the fact that the 4th falls on a Tuesday) is upon us. Steanso will be jetting off for Houston to catch up with Roundball and McSteans as they journey to Houston to visit Karebear and The Admiral. Hilarity is likely to ensue (or at the very least, madcap hijinks).
Last night I got together with Jackbart. We ate pizza and attempted to watch a flick called Nochnoy Dozor. It was a Russian horror movie of sorts (the translated title was Nightwatch), and Jackbart informed me that he'd heard rumors that some American studios were considering doing an American remake of the flick (Jackbart, being a screenwriter, is often good for that kind of info). Anyway, we tried to watch the movie, but it was really confusing and filled with hyperkinetic editing, direction, and cinematography. The plot seemed a little convoluted as well, and the whole thing just had kind of a cheesey vibe to it. Anyway, it'd been a long week, and we had just eaten a lot of pizza, and so I started to kind of nod off. The movie was confusing enough as it was, and as soon as I got sleepy, I completely lost track of what little I had been able to glean in terms of the plot. I don't know when I finally really dozed off, but I woke up to Jackbart slapping me on the shoulder and telling me he was giving up on the movie. I feel a little bad about konking out during the movie, but not that bad. It just didn't do much for me. If they're going to remake an American version, they're probably going to have to put a lot of work into reformatting the entire thing- the pacing and manner in which the whole story was told will probably not do very well with American audiences.
OK. Gotta run. I'll probably blog from the 'rents computer when I have a slow moment, but if you don't hear from me, have a good weekend!!!
