"Resident Evil: The Final Chapter" is more of the same, though the sparkle seems to have warn off completely, and everyone seems tired. There is still fun to be had, here, but the signal to noise ration is getting worse with each iteration, and I am not sure that this one was worth the trouble.
"XXX: The return of Xander Cage" is just loads of fun. The stunts are great, the dialog is good, everything just WORKS. There is not the least pretense to profundity here, just flat out escapist entertainment. And that is a really good thing. It has been a long time since I have enjoyed a movie this much.
Went down to see my dad for the first time in about a month after class on Saturday. The railroad logo shirts that I hoped to give him for Christmas finally showed up the day after my last trip south, so he finally got them: D&RGW and Great Northern, to the extent that it matters. He seems slightly more diminished every time I see him, and he has for a while now. I love him, but visiting him makes me sad.
The Cisco class continues to eat my life. I had hoped to take a day off and run to Toledo for BashCon, which is my favorite gaming con, but I have decided that I can't afford the time.
Life goes on.
