Things I encountered this weekend.
I really liked the first one. This one is similar, but suffers without what made the first movie so fun- Jason Bourne discovering his unknown abilities. Still, this is an above average movie in the espionage, spy, whatever genre.
Day after Tomorrow.
Cool effects, but not a great deal else. Pretty lame, preachy and cliched dialogue. Still, it was entertaining, for a while at least.
Apon the 4th viewing i rank this one below Starsky and Hutch. It tends to just sort of meander here and there, but it's still a fun movie that will make me laugh out loud.
Mr. Show, the dvds.
Sam lent me these and boy am i grateful. I'm going to look for my own copies, as I will want to watch Van Hammersley teach various subjects using a pool table over and over. This show is an overlooked beauty! It's from 95/96, starring Bob Odenkirk and David Cross, as well as featuring the likes of a young Jack Black. It's sort of the Monty Python style of sketches leading into each other. Fantastic stuff.
Thievery Corporation - The Outernational Sound
Great DJ mix of hip hop/dance beats and a real eclectic mix of musical styles. Less hip hop than DJ Nu Mark's "Hands On", but not as tight overall. This is still a really great listen. I'm starting to become a huge fan of DJ compilations now.
Herbaliser featuring Blade - Time 2 Build
Just a fantastic song. I've never heard of Blade before, but now i want to see more of his stuff. His rhymes are tight even when rhyming franticly over yet another slick Herbaliser beat. This one's off of "Something Wicked This Way Comes".
