Evil, Oblivion, Overtime

One of my co-workers has parlayed his hypochondria into a medical leave, and suddenly I have the opportunity for a LOT of overtime in front of me. Finances being what they are, I took a fair amount of it. This means that I will be spending most of my time working and sleeping for a while.

In the meantime, there are movies:

"Evil Dead" is a sort of hybrid sequel/remake of the 1981 original. It is a fairly well executed horror film, neither brilliant nor idiotic. Well, ONE of the characters is beyond idiotic. But then, SOMEONE had to read the forbidden incantation aloud, or there wouldn't have been a movie.

"Oblivion" is a slow paced and predictable but generally well executed SF film. The effects are clever but not overwhelming, and the cast and performances are solid. There is very cool VTOL flyer, and an offensively pointless motorcycle. We enjoyed it a great deal.
