watchin’ it…

So totally back into the swing now. We’ve been trying to make up for lost time at Watch This. We went in to get some TV but it was checked out so we rented The Game and High Fidelity. Funny thing about The Game is that I’d just heard about it and the whole story the week before, having had no intention of seeing it. And then here we go renting it. I couldn’t get what I heard about it out of my mind so it was funny when at the last scene, it changed from where I had thought it would go. So that was a little surprise. All in all it was pretty entertaining and a bit stressful at times. High Fidelity, well we all know this movie. I actually used to own it until I swapped it for a disc of Stargate. Most folks might find this hard to understand but, even though I wish I still had the disc at times, I think I made the right switch. Cusack’s character is just too annoying and I find my patience for Jack Black to be fairly limited. Though his dissing of the wimpy music always cheers me up. Speaking of the music. I think that possibly every song in the movie is lame. Black complains about lame girlyman rock and then puts in lame R&B rock… I dunno. It’s all lame except for the Stiff Little Fingers, but then that’s even spoiled by the comparisons made with Green day (what? Excuse me? How old are these people?)? So why so I even keep wanting to watch it? I dunno. Memories of my record store clerk times… And of course all of the records in Dobler’s (well, whatever) apartment. Those always cheer me up, no matter how lame they are.

Anyway. We finished those and then they had Six Feet Under back in! Yay! We burned through it in 2 days! Another great season! Though the Sopranos is still my favorite, I feel that Six Feet has more consistantly good seasons. This one seemed a bit focused on sex lives, but maybe they all are, and both Catie and I are finding Claire’s star falling as she gets lost in a haze of Marijuana smoke. Sad. But it was a great season with some good shockers! I’m ready for season 5!

And future wise? Well, I still haven’t watched Oldboy but maybe I can get Matt to come by sometime when the girls are occupied and we can finally check it out!

    Much of what you are watching these days seems to be “pretty entertaining” and/or “stressful”. C’mon, get happy!
    In regards to the High Fidelity/Stargate trade, I think you did the right thing. The only thing I find surprising about that is that you even bothered to get a copy of High Fidelity in the first place…
    And as for the wimpy rock Jack Black is making fun of, I have a theory about why exactly they chose the song they did for that scene, but I’ll spare you the details, this is my first reply and I don’t want to come across as too tedious & awful right out of the gate.
