Super Chili Bowl Matrix Charlie's Angels thing

No, I’m not dead, I was just under the weather.

So yeah, that football thing was great. Good commercials. Some “Pirate” team won, I think. I’m not really sure. The only thing I’m sure of is that there was a lot of chili, and I don’t make enough chili in my life.


I’m watching that Matrix trailer. That one. The one with the Agent Smiths. Plural. Yeah. I think I’m in line now. There are six months between the two movies. The thing is this: The first sequel ends in a cliff hanger. Filmus Interruptus, as it were. So the big question is, wait a few months and then watch it, so I only have to wait three months on edge instead of six? Or just watch the damn thing opening night and then wait the six months.

Yes, I have hard decisions to make.

On the other hand, that Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle (changed the name from “Halo”–I don’t blame them, considering how they’d be running into a Microsoft product of the same name) trailer looks fantastic. I like the direction that they’re taking the angels. They managed to avoid titling the movie Charlie’s Angels: Xtreme, which I think was a good move, considering that everything is “Xtreme” these days, even spelling.

The first movie was a guilty pleasure of mine. Pure pulpy action flick goodness. I’ve never been complimented on my taste in movies anyway. I liked “I-Spy” when I saw a sneak preview. For the most part, I love fluff movies. I’m not into thinking too much when I’m watching a movie. Give me bullet time, slow motion, explosions, POV cams, wirework, and lots of fighting. I’m here to forget about the real world for two hours.

The releases of Summer 2003 are shaping up to do just that.
