So You Cooked Up a Story and Dropped the Six of Us in a Meatgrinder?

by Rainier on Sept. 21, 2009 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

As mentioned yesterday, we went to the movies to see "Gamer" and "Whiteout," both of which were quite mediocre. "Gamer," which was initially named "Game," was actually filmed a while ago, shortly after Gerard Butler did "300," but it didn't come out until now in order to get the visual effects done properly. The movie was not all that brilliant; while it contains lots of action and heads exploding, I was more surprised by the foul language and major T&A. "Whiteout," with Kate Beckinsale, is a thriller set in Antarctica. It's dominated by loads of snow, and there are a few action scenes in a blizzard, but otherwise, it was rather uneventful and bland.

Did some shopping, had dinner (steamed mussels and fries), and good-bye weekend. It's been a pleasure ....
