In the last week I have been able to watch four movies that have been on my to watch list for quite some time. Those movies were Jarhead, Syriana, Lord of War and Constant Gardener. Of those four I would say that Constant Gardener hit me the most.
I was really psyched to watch Jarhead, perhaps it was the several hour intermission halfway through the movie while Gord and I played Chaos Theory on XBOX together that messed with the flow of the movie, but I was still pretty satisfied with it. Lord of War was interesting as I had never really thought of arms dealing as a line of business.
And Syriana knocked my socks off. It was complicated, intelligent, well written and required you to be an active viewer. I found it pretty powerful but will need to watch it again in order to pick up all of the pieces. Next week I will watch Munich and should be caught up on my viewings.
Other than that there is not much to report. Survivor and ER are both on tonight, and look forward to having something to look forward to on Thursday nights again. Also, when I got to work today there was $9,000 worth of Apple products in our boardroom. There was a 30″ monitor attached to a sexy G5. I am not a Mac user, but seeing such beauty could make me a believer.
