Had a good weekend - saw several movies. We seem to be going to movies far more often in the last few months than in the prior year! I guess there are more good ones out.

Saturday we saw Rundown - excellent. Good acting, good script, and Christopher Walken is, as always, creepy.

Sunday we saw Underworld - also good, if you have ever read or played any of the Vampire: The Masquerade books or games, the movie is similiar. Not as much emphasis on the varied Clans, just families. Great look about this movie, and the transformation scenes are very well done.

Then Sunday night we rented Gangs of New York. Waste of 3 hours. I'm sorry, but I didn't like the movie. Nominated for awards, eh? Who pays those nominators? if you want to see a lot of racist & violent criminals fighting each other for three hours, see it. There were no good guys in this movie, everyone was petty, violent, etc - no tenderness, no redemption.
