Nothing's happening

How boring am I this week? So boring that all I have to tell you about are things I have watched on my TV, be they movies or shows.

24 - At this rate there won't be any secondary characters left 2/3 of the way into the season. But it sure is ratcheting up the tension, yes it is.

Veronica Mars - I think the large break (waiting for Top Model to start so hopefully their ratings will go up) has really shattered the nice build this season had going, but last night's episode was still pretty solid.

Lost - Finally got around to seeing the Claire-centric episode from a few weeks back. The flashbacks were all about what Claire experienced when Ethan kidnapped her, so this episode gets mad props from me. Sorry I said "mad props."

Battlestar Galactica - A rather awesome twist, huh? Didn't see that coming.

Movies!

A History of Violence - It's a pretty simple movie, really, but it's extremely well-acted and directed. Remember kids, killing everyone solves all your problems! (Not really.)

The Ice Harvest - This was pretty much ignored when it came out, and I can see why. It's a really low-key noirish comedy that struck me as really hard to advertise. Just like Violence, it's short and too the point, and all the better for it.

This week's episode of Veronica Mars was solid, but nothing compared to the two new episodes that aired right before it. Those were kickass.

A History of Violence is an excellent movie.

Lindsay - Well sure, Ice Harvest is no Groundhog Day, but compared to Bedazzled, Multiplicity, and Analyze This, it's pure gold.

ryansenseless - Agreed.
