Reign of Fire

Reign of Fire is an entertaining Sci-Fi Action movie if you’re in need of a quick Friday night fix for that sort of thing. Elements of believability are spotty at best, but the special effects are nothing short of spectacular. Matthew McConaughey plays an American soldier/dragon slayer in this futuristic tale where fire-breathing monsters prey upon a burnt-out England. Blazing tattoos, a scruffy beard, and a piss poor attitude, it’s hard to imagine that this guy was once considered Hollywood’s gift to the ladies—even the next Paul Newman. Contrast and irony are almost as big a stimulation as the CGI dragons. Anyway, we found this movie to be entertaining on several levels, but not a landmark achievement by any means.


Snow Day

Well, it was quite a bit more snow than we expected, which kept me from going into work today. However, after shoveling we were able to get out briefly for this cold and wet adventure. Here’s a few winter pics and an iMovie starring Liz.

Requires QuickTime.

Happy Thanksgiving everybody! Today we binged on turkey like Hunter S. Thompson held captive in an elderly home. Tired. Very tired.
