Saw Van Helsing

David says I'm just not appreciating a summer action movie. No, I tell him. I can appreciate a light summer action movie; it's the disjointed script and crappy CGI that I'm not appreciating. Maybe Gollum has just ruined me in the suspension-of-disbelief department.

I did appreciate some of the actors trying to do the best with the dreck they had to work with, but there was no saving it, in my humble opinion. Oh, it wasn't the worst movie I've ever seen, not by far, it was just quite mediocre. Not even up to popcorn movie standards.

Other coming blockbusters:

Troy
Chronicles of Riddick
(mumpish, I'm assuming we can talk you and T. into getting together to see this one?)
Shrek 2
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Spider-Man 2
I, Robot
Hero
(can't wait for this one; friend who's already seen it says "Forget Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.")

Oh, streamweaver? They're making "A Sound of Thunder" into a movie, scheduled for release in October.

The good news? While we were out picking up Mother's Day cards, David bought me the two NWN expansions! Yippee! Of course, the little surprise Mystery Men DVD that I picked up for him arrived in the mail today, so we've just sort of been giving each other little no-occasion-but-that-I-love-you presents this week.
