Two on the Aisle

Today TinyTuna and I spent part of the afternoon watching Eragon. The movie is best described as equal parts of Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Chronicles of Narnia, combined with a dash of Wizard of Oz, Old Yeller (mythical beast version) and Last of the Mohicans. Stir in enormous special effects and a lush yet majestic soundtrack set at 11. Shake, dump onto celluloid, and serve with popcorn.

Overall, it wasn't a bad way to spend an afternoon. I'm just hoping my hearing comes back before tomorrow.

I am officially an old lady. Crotchety, too. I often carry earplugs, and if it weren't for my husband's eyes pleading with me to PLEASE not dissolve any remaining shreds of hipness clinging to us I would have asked them to turn down Casino Royale.

Great chase scene. What?
That torture thing was wild. Huh?
and so on...
