Watched The Day After Tomorrow last night. I loved it, absolutely loved it. I can understand why it didn’t exactly exactly get the best reviews, it was drowned in cliches, the acting was nothing to rave about, the scene with the wolves was just plain trashy, but it was good anyway.
For me, the best parts were the amazing special effects (who cares if the whole movie relies on them, it’s what we want to see), Ian Holm (the only one who did any decent acting in my opinion, love him), and the fact that they didn’t try and make it too melodramatic. I didn’t find it to be a film that makes you tingly inside and want to love all of mankind, I found it to be two hours of sitting back, switching your brain off and being entertained.
Worst parts? The wolves! Everyone in the cinema started laughing at that point, especially when that wolf kinda winked at Sam (Jake Gyllenhaal), and the whole chase was just stupid. Second would have to be the relationship between Sam and Laura (Emmy Rossum). Pure “ugh”.
Oh, and throw Mexico closing the gates into the good parts section. Come on, that was funny.
Not been up to much other than that, lots of work to get done, plus I’m teaching myself PHP. My birthday’s in a week, not sure what I’ll do for that. I haven’t really been into celebrating it since I was seven. Last year Willie and I just went to eat in a nice restaurant, but nowadays we prefer to patronise small coffee shops and such, much more relaxing.
Unprovoked update: When you change your theme, it should now keep you at the page you were at rather than redirect you back to a default theme change page. Also, there’s now a subnav under the main navigation that links to all the pages in the section that you’re viewing. No big updates other than that, just a few cosmetic changes to some of the pages.
