    It's slim pickings in the theaters at this point, so we opted for The Lego Movie, despite DDD's warning. Though it wasn't great, and the main song will haunt me for weeks, it had a lot of decent laughs and the animation was pretty clever. We agreed it was the best interlocking plastic blocks movie we had ever seen.

    But perhaps our enthusiasm was due to our having seen the execrable Three Days to Kill just five nights earlier--Kevin Costner in a Liam Neeson-type action hero role, and his screen daughter is only slightly less annoying than Neeson's in Taken. And has there ever been a movie featuring an albino who is a good person? They're all evil, EVIL, I tell you. Strangely, The Albino, as he is known, in this movie isn't really an albino. I don't know if this is part of some weird affirmative action program (like an ACT production of A Christmas Carol that featured a black Mrs. Cratchit and a black Tiny Tim with white siblings), but between getting shut out of one of the few roles tailored for albinos, and the consistently horrible depiction of albinos in films, albinos are being victimized by Hollywood and there's money to be made here for an aggressive plaintiff's lawyer.

    Well, you're such an excellent person otherwise that I'm able to overlook this cinematic blind spot on your part.

    We took the kids to the Lego Movie tonight. They loved it. I thought it was pretty funny.

    After having seen the Jason Bourne movie with Kevin Costner, I have sworn off any movie with Kevin Costner. The guy is incapable of acting, especially if it requires a mean streak, or a streak of desperation. If it stars Kevin Costner, it will be excreable. You have been forewarned. I am glad I saved myself from a tortuous evening.

    That movie, Non-Stop, opens Friday. 3 Days to Kill isn't bad enough to warrant a visit for unintended laughs, but it's close. There are so many odd plot points, including
    Spoiler for (like it matters...):
    Costner's fatal illness with symptoms that kick in only at the climactic point of each long firefight, but can be alleviated with a drink of vodka, and a large, extended family of African immigrants who squat in Costner's apartment, and can't be evicted until April per some odd Parisian landlord-tenant law. At least their presence allows Costner to view the birth of a baby that emerges without any muss, or an umbilicus, and appears to be eight months old. I could add a few more, but that would force me to relive the experience, which I cannot do.

    So that's what you call me. You know, that or, uh, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you're not into the whole brevity thing.

    Yes, I enjoyed that post. Although I may kick you in the nuts if we ever meet for sleeping through Vertigo. One of the best ever.

    The premise looks good, but Kevin will find a way to botch it. I will await your long awaited review to determine if I shall break my misguided oath.

    The phrase "Release the Kraken" has been re-purposed at my house so if that's what he's going to do, I'll sit that one out.

    Did Costner go bankrupt or something? Why is he suddenly in every new release?

    People are complaining about the new Noah's ark movie because it isn't "historically accurate".

    If christians want to be historically accurate, then they shouldn't make a movie about the flood in the first place, as it's a historical fact that the flood didn't happen
