With Veterans Day, things were pretty quiet yesterday, so hopefully it will pick up again today. Didn't get to watch any war movies on TV, though. I'd already seen them multiple times or already own the DVD.
I did not get a chance to check out Modern Warfare 2 yet, but hope to do so later today. At the very least, I'm hoping to check out the single-player portion.
We watched Castle and checked out the series premiere of V
, a remake of the early '80s sci-fi series. It's difficult to pass judgment on only one episode, but so far, it's pretty solid. We also checked out Be Cool
, an older movie that we had in our collection but never got around to seeing, and surprisingly, it was much better than either of us expected.
