I'm Not Obsessing, I'm Just Curious

by Rainier on Jan. 8, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

The CES in full swing! I'll be checking out the new mobile phones — the Google phone in particular, since our current contract is about to expire and we're in the market for new cell phones.

We finished watching Up, and if you haven't seen it yet, it's great. It's a bit of an emotional roller coaster but damn good. On the flip side, we also watched Echelon Conspiracy, and for a movie with big names like Edward Burns, Ving Rhames and Jonathan Pryce, it sure was majorly disappointing.

Tonight, we may try to see Avatar again. I hope the third time's the charm, as the shows were sold out hours in advance for our two previous attempts.
