I have been sick lately. Sorry all my friends out there in blog land. 🙂 Hope you didn’t miss me too much!
I feel like I don’t have much to write about lately. I did see Jarhead last weekend like I mentioned we might and it was very good. Not only because we got to see Jakey’s nakedness much, but also it was a different kind of war story. There was no direct killing or fighting, it was all psychological warfare and it was a lot different from the war I’m studying right now in my Literature of the Vietnam War class. In some ways it’s very similar though. Like how the people back in the United States don’t support the soldiers or even care about the battle they fought, how some soldiers just can’t cope with civilian life once they come back. I reccomend seeing it, but not if you can’t handle nudity, violence and some disturbing imagery.
On Tuesday night we went and saw Good Night, and Good Luck. It was short, confusing but kind of good. I think they could have done a better job making things… clearer? I don’t know. I’m not sure what I was confused about. At the end I wasn’t sure what they accomplished. From history I know that McCarthy was his own undoing because he started after some members of the Senate, so I’m not sure if Ed’s show had much to do with taking McCarthy down, but he did help people like that lieutenant get his job back. It was a pretty good flick though. What was the point of the Robert Downey Jr. storyline? That did not add to the movie much.
I’m not sure if we’ll be going to see any movies this weekend, but I wouldn’t mind seeing the new Pride and Prejudice if only to bash it and then decide that Coliny is WAY better than any other man who could ever attempt to play Mr. Darcy. :loveeye:
