piranha - spider lashes.

Mummy: Return of the DragonEmperor

On Sunday evening I saw the new Mummy movie with Kitty, Bandaid and Seanie. It was utterly ridiculous, like all the movies in that franchise. Seanie thought that it didn't match the chronology of the previous movies; it just didn't seem like enough time for Alex (the son) to have grown from cute, precocious brat to arrogant twenty-something hottie.

I wasn't too crazy about the new actress for Evelyn. I mean, she did fine, but she and Fraser just didn't have that same spark that Rachel Weisz brought to the role. Anyone know why she didn't come back for Round 3? (IMDB says "Rachel Weisz announced that she will not be reprising her role of Evelyn due to different interests with the screenplay." That's too bad.)

Michelle Yeoh is awesome and can do whatever she wants.

Fun movie. Don't know that I'd ever see it again, but it was fun.
piranha - crazy eyes

Oh boy. Oh no. Oh cool.

I'm running a cute li'l contest on my blog for some Neil Gaiman books, nothing too serious, and he's just posted it on his blog. Very cool! Although if the current traffic patterns are any indication (700+ hits on a blog that normally sees between 40-50)
(whoops, while I walked away to answer a phone call - about ten minutes - it shot up to 850)
I'm gonna need a lot more prizes.
Good thing Kenny donated a few.

But I might need to go trolling bookstores for some deals!

But hey! Mention in Neil Gaiman's blog! Five seconds of internet fame! Yippee!
