new rule

Sky Captain!I have a new rule.  If I can’t stay awake during a movie, it’s not worth watching twice.  Thank God for Netflix, I can just power through movies I won’t watch twice.

(My God, how dreadful was Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow?  The look was “nice,” but it got in the way of the story, and the soundtrack was insufferable.  Ever present, melodramatic – it kept reminding me of why I can’t stand watching Gone With the Wind – the music just won’t stop.  And then there were power hungry robots living in Tibet, and then nothing but sleep.  Blissful sleep.)
