Weekend Movie Update

Okay, so Netflix was nice enough to drop off a couple of movies for us this week. One of them was so bad, I don't even want to talk about it. The other two were Walking Tall, and About a Boy. I really really liked Walking Tall. It was short (almost too short), and had enough action, and storyline to keep you going. It was also based on a true story, so you can see that the plot line is somewhat true. Some of the Rock's other movies are a little far fetched (see The Rundown if you get really really bored), but this was good. Good enough to the point that I'm going to buy a copy rather than burn a copy of that one.

About a Boy I slept through a large part of it because I don't like Hugh Grant. I haven't liked him since he cheated on Elizabeth Hurley. I'm sure there is more to the story than I know, but I can't imagine someone dating Elizabeth Hurley and needing to pay someone for sex. I don't really see the need in paying for sex, but to each their own. You'd have to ask my wife her opinion on About a Boy. I would have watched it just because Rachel Weisz was in it, but the Hugh Grant factor was too much.

All in all, we had a good weekend. Auburn beat Arkansas 38-20, but my driver blew a tire and crashed after leading 250 laps so that sucked. Outside of the race, I can't complain.

Come on, you gotta tell me what the really bad movie was...you know, so I don't waste my time.

I used to have a problem w/ Hugh Grant too, and it actually did have something to do w/ him cheating on Liz Hurley, just thought he was disgusting after that. Anyway, I just loved Mickey Blue Eyes, so I've liked him ever since.

Hey, you gotta tell us about the bad movie, how else will we know to avoid it.

As for Huge Grant, I know what you mean, but come on, Rachel Weisz.... why punish her just because she's in the same movie....

Sorry, I don't even want to say the movie aloud. Then people would have to know I saw it. It showed up on Netflix because I've rated 842 movies now, so I guess they'd run out of stuff for me. It was a low budget movie that was among the worst I'd ever seen. I promise, you will probably never run across it and go "Ohh, this looks good."
