Slow Blogging... Odds and Ends
This week the wife is on a cruise down south, which leaves me in charge of the brood. The good thing is that my late-night hours have been spent catching up on all the best 'guy' movies I've missed lately. The bad thing is that I've had zero time to write anything meaningful.
So be patient or I'll kick your arse.
The big smackdown... Where's Samuel Jackson?
Stayed up late watching Iron Monkey, a Quentin Tarantino 're-release' martial arts film worthy of being called one of the best... on par with Fists of Fury and Enter The Dragon. The Kung-Fu portrayed is simply breathtaking. Oh, and the storyline isn't bad either, which is rare for a film in this genre. If you haven't seen it, go rent it.
Woke up early this morning and was greeted with the opening scenes of Firefox, one of the coolest Cold War movies ever. Of course I gave myself some ample time to watch it, which ruled out getting to work early like I had hoped. To make matters worse, as Firefox was ending, another great classic was starting... So I Married An Axe Murderer.
Damn these dirty cable companies!
UPDATE: Movies on my list to watch while the wife is sipp'n margaritas in Cancun (Me bitter? naaaaa)

So I Married An Axe Murderer
Flight of the Pheonix
