By The Way, Why Are We Wearing Bras On Our Heads?

by Rainier on Nov. 6, 2009 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

We are SO ready for this weekend thing to happen! We don't have any specific plans, apart from a hike with some flaky friends, so who knows whether that will happen at all? How about we get through Friday before we start making plans?

I finally finished watching Drag Me To Hell, and it did not really get much better as it progressed, so I have no idea why people are calling this one of Sam Raimi's best works. I enjoyed Spider-Man and The Grudge, but if DMtH was the better stuff, I shudder to think what his worst is.

I also watched the new Sons of Anarchy, and they are slowly working up to a major confrontation, not only with the local sheriff and Zobel (some white power fanatic) but also between the MC's two top leaders.
