I've been very prickly the past few days. VERY prickly. Plus, I almost fell asleep at my desk at my new job TWICE in the past two days. That's not good. I'm hoping it's tiredness/PMS and not something worse. Like narcolepsy.
MOVIE REVIEWS (of books that were made into movies):
Into the Wild: Jesus, I fucking hate hippies. Bad childhood, rich boy? Suck it up and deal. Not even Hal Holbrook could redeem this dreck. And Sean Penn is a terrible director. Terrible. Which is a pity, because I really liked that one book by the author of Into the Wild - you know, the one about the polygamist Mormons? That one? Really good.
Gone Baby Gone: Casey Affleck is horribly wooden, but man, did this movie move! I really liked it. Plus, Ed Harris was awesome, as were Amy Madigan and Amy Ryan. Ben Affleck, surprisingly good director. I know. I wouldn't have believed it either. I think I need to read some Dennis Lehane.
O.k., I'm going to try and read some blogs since I don't have time because of that whole work thing. Plus the narcolepsy.
