Non-zombie movie viewing
But I had to get out of the house. Too much time editing "serious" writings (ha, what could be more "serious" than zombie apocalypse?) and the kids were acting up. Unfortunately, even though I've been subjected to the ads and great reviews, Children of Men is still nowhere in the vicinity of our quiet village. So, okay, I broke down and saw Rocky, as the reviews had been at least so-so. And it's embarrassing, but the formula still works. Pretty maudlin throughout, though thankfully they kept the full-on barrage of flashbacks to Talia Shire and Burgess Meredith till the final moments of the big fight. So, anyway, you'd think watching Rocky dig deep and come from behind couldn't possibly, ever, in anyway, ever work again. You blocks, you stones, you worse than senseless things - you'd be wrong.
