Well, I actually have a few movies to mention this week! :)

"The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe" - Meh. I'm not saying I didn't like it, I'm just saying I was a little disappointed. I was expecting something on a slightly more grandiose scale, I think. I also don't remember the books particularly well, so I'm not sure if it was that the plot was predictable, or if I actually remembered stuff from the books. Liam Neeson as the voice of the Lion was nice, though... very good choice. :)

"Star Wars" & "The Empire Strikes Back" - J has the almost original trilogy on VHS, so I borrowed them. And as I watch them, I am struck by a number of things. 1) I suppose if I have to get an altered version of the movies, these are acceptable. They only changed a few things, and at least it isn't Hayden Christensen at the end as the ghost of Anakin. 2) People weren't kidding when they said that Jar-Jar Binks was not the first annoying character in the series. C3PO is particularly annoying, as is Yoda, when you first see him.

Eventually, probably tomorrow, I will finish off the trilogy, but I didn't want to start "Return of the Jedi" at like 9 p.m. last night. And I will once again bemoan the fact that they took away Billy Dee Williams rhythm by changing the Ewok song at the end. I liked the old Ewok song!

In other news, Rasputina tonight... and Dawn does the happy dance! :)
