Well, I saw a couple of movies this past week...

"Underworld: Evolution" - When I saw the first Underworld movie in the theatre, I wasn't impressed. I bought it for cheap on DVD, and grew to really like it. I'm wondering if the case will be the same with this one. :) Mostly, I was just irked by certain inconsistencies. Like a corset that had a zipper for the sex scene, but for the rest of the movie, did not. And chalk drawings that stayed in a damp cave for 1400 years. You know, little things. But they irk me nonetheless. :)

"Robots" - This was too adorably cute. Well, at least I say it was too adorably cute. Boys may disagree. That's okay. :) But yeah, definitely a good kids movie, and fun for adults as well. :)

I also watched some old movies... Batman Begins, Queen of the Damned, and bits of Dune (the original one). The last was on as background noise, but I told J that if he actually wanted to watch it (he's never seen it), I'd be happy to sit down and watch the whole thing again. Dune is good stuff... :)

In other news, for the curious, I have decided NOT to go see NIN next weekend. The opening band is someone I've never heard of, and I suspect they are a lot like Bloc Party or Death from Above 1979. Not that this is a bad thing, but a) I've never heard of them, b) Champaign is far away, and c) I think I know what concert I actually want to go to this spring instead. More on that when I get it sorted completely out. :)
