Birthday yesterday was mostly good.

1) Read a book
2)watched an ep of a show (don't ask which b/c I am embarrased)
3) did a little workout
4) had lunch at favorite salad place
5) saw lots of BF
6) had great sushi at Kabuki

7)FUCK PETER JACKSON and the directors of District 9

They managed to make what few action seens they had boring (how is that possible). I haven't been that bored when watching a movie since I saw 'Salems Lot". If you are looking for action go see GI Joe. If you want a boring movie about humanity then go see district 9.

[ profile] lightbane_v1 called it a 'sedate scifi drama'. Yep sedate is ther right word. He of course enjoyed it.

"boring movie about humanity"?

Yeah, I suppose, if you're expecting an action movie, D9 would be disappointing.

Yeah, I suppose if you're not a scientist or a human or otherwise not interested in seeing a grim, unflinching look at humanity's inhumanity to The Other, you'd be bored.

[ profile] bansidhe and I were engrossed.

I can understand if you don't like it. It takes a 2x4, paints it with South-African grade apartheid and smacks you upside the head with it. But bored? It makes me wonder what you think is entertaining.

Umm, just for the record..I am a scientist.

Precisely my point. I could not believe that someone with a scientific bent would think this movie was boring.

What about that is supposed to appeal to a physicist or engineer? At no point do they describe how anything works. I could get all sarcastic and point out all of the parts that might be considered of interest to a science geek like me but I promised no spoilers in this post.
