The NEW Adventures.....
So tonight I’m going to go see The DaVinci Code. I’m really excited. I heard on the radio today that the movie is only good if you read the book (which I have). If you haven’t read the book, I guess the movie is pretty hard to follow. Well – sucks to be you non readers! Cause I plowed through this book in 3 days! It blew me away from chapter 1, and I could barely put it down! I even read it in the bathroom, AND abstained from drinking while reading it, so I would have my wits about me! That’s a DEM fine book to make me do that!!!
So, has anyone else read this? Cause I thought EVERYONE loved this book, until I spoke with Josh’s mom. She said she couldn’t get past the first chapter! BLECH!!! My mind is boggled! But apparently, not all people like mystery, suspense, drama, history, and art! Well BOO ON YOU.
I am also excited to see the new and last X-Men movie. It looks AWESOME!!!! Everyone has matured into their characters, Jean Grey is coming back as The Phoenix, and Wolverine is STILL friggin’ hawt!!! Looks like it’s gonna be rockin’!
Superman is also coming out this summer, and I’m excited to see that, too. But my question is: Why have they been remaking all the old films? Can they not find anything better to spend their millions of dollars on? People are submitting screenplays left and right in Hollywood – how can they ALL be so terrible? The Hills Have Eyes? The Fog? The Manchurian Candidate? C’MON Hollywood!! Grow some cajones! What’s next? Are they going to remake Mission Impossible? Or as Kurt would say, Mission Improbable? It stunk the first time! Why make more? Like when Hollywood got even lazier and started making movies out of old hit TV shows! DERF!!! Great idea, think tank! I can’t believe those people get paid millions of dollars!!!
But that is the trend. Everything is cooler when it’s new and ‘improved’. New toys from old ones (uh…care bears? Again? How is THAT improved?) 80s fashion? I thought everyone still made FUN of the 80s! But oddly enough, I was watching some old movie with Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor last night, and some chick from 1980 looked like the same girl I saw walking down the street in Boulder the other day!
We need some new innovators. Maybe it’s just our generation that is in charge of all the trend setting in the US basically telling everyone that we’re too lazy to think of anything new. That’s a good thought. Maybe they’re all playing Xbox in their offices instead of working. That would be SWEET.
