Money, Noise, Underworld, STORY!

Trying not to bury the lead, I wrote a story yesterday. This is the most substantial bit of creativity I have committed in YEARS that was not based in despair. Here: http://unclehyena.livejournal.com/310105.html

Dentist on Wednesday, blodge on Thursday, two movies on Friday, work a bunch, movie on Wednesday, and it is Imbolc morning and I am finally updating my blog.

"One for the Money" is based on a long running series of flaky sort-of detective novels. It deserves to be a series of movies. This is far and away the best thing star Katherine Heigl has ever done, and I LIKE her a great deal. Highly recommended.

"Joyful Noise" is a come from behind sports movie that happens to focus on Gospel choral singing. You get what you pay for. If you enjoy the music, and Queen Latifah, you will enjoy this movie. We do and did.

"Underworld: Awakening" is yet another entry in this humorless, dreary, convoluted series that mostly features Kate Beckinsale running around in a black latex unitard blowing things up. Like the other entries in the series, it is neither as good as I had hoped, nor as bad as I had feared. I have seen them all, and will likely see the inevitable next entry, but then, I am a movie slut.
