Noah, Sabotage, Poker

The usual foolishness.

"Noah" is a gigantic Biblical epic with a great cast that doesn't bother to follow the outline. Given that the original story is probably the most problematic passage in the Bible, one would expect the director to try to make sense of it, but in this case he chose to make the story even more horrible and weird. I don't regret seeing it, but I can't recommend it either.

"Sabotage" is well constructed misdirection caper movie that is so dark and creepy that it is hard to enjoy the worthwhile elements in the story. I am glad I saw it, but again, this is not exactly a recommendation.

On Friday I went south and had dinner with my father and played poker. My dad continues to deteriorate; he is allowing his quality of life to slip away out of apathy, and it is heartbreaking to watch. Poker, on the other hand... I came within one card of winning the first tourney, failing because my opponent filled an inside straight on the river. It has become clear that my method of evaluating hands is significantly different than that of pretty much everyone else.
