Paul and I finally managed to see Star Wars II: Attack of the Clones today. The best thing I can say about it is that it didn’t suck as much as The Phantom Menace. But sheesh, was there any plot at all behind all those special effects? Uh, no. Did the movie actually advance the story in any substantial way? Uh, no. And yet, almost 30% of IMBD raters gave it 10 of 10! The mind boggles.
We also watched Snatch last night, which Paul enjoyed, but I thought was a confusing bore. It was self-consciously witty in much the same way that made both Cryptonomicon and Confederacy of Dunces unreadable for me.
Ah, but at least I got to refresh the soul with yet another episode of Powerpuff Girls this evening!
