Saturday Night Blues

As an easily irritated person, there's nothing quite as irritating as facing a rainy Saturday night without something decent to watch on television.  Ordinarily, we save this night to watch a new movie that comes in from Netflix on a regular basis.  However, on Thursday night, I discovered that my pick from last week was still laying on a table in the living room where I had placed it after viewing last Saturday night.  Not really wanting to watch "Coroline" for a second time, I threw it in the mail on Friday and resigned myself to being new-movie-less tonight.

We walked past a "Redbox" machine while we were grocery shopping this afternoon, but I wasn't in the mood to take the several minutes it would take to figure out how to use it.  I suppose I miss out on a lot of new experiences this way, but that's just the way it is.

So, I've scoped out a few oldies from my DVD library for tonight and have to figure out which one of these to settle on.  I haven't watched "Collateral" more than once or twice, but I've developed an aversion to Tom Cruise after watching "Valkyrie".  Besides, what's really better than the combination of John Woo in his prime, Nic Cage before he started to make bad role choices and an evil John Travolta?  "Face/Off" it is!

Put the popcorn on the stove Sadie ... 


  1. Any of those will be a helluva lot better than "The American".

    That's an hour and a half that I'll never be able to get back.

  2. You know, I was going to actually go to the theatre for the first time in years to see that until I read your post. Now I don't even know if I want to rent it when it comes out on DVD. This is how much I trust you :)
