It's The Same Train, But It's Different

by Rainier on April 18, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m. PDT | Filed under MOTD

Damn, this weekend flew by in a hurry!

Apart from going out for some tasty breakfast, we mainly watched movies. There was a Toy Story marathon on TV, so we watched the first two of the trilogy, some Bones, NCIS, Supernatural, and we went to the theater to see Source Code. If you haven't seen Jake Gyllenhaal's latest movie yet (also starring Russell Peters, Vera Farmiga and Michelle Monaghan), then I won't spoil give any spoilers, but the movie was quite good and the last minute is a head scratcher in a good and bad way. Also watched Just Wright with Queen Latifah and Common, and it was surprisingly good for a romantic comedy.

We suffered through Machete, and wow, for all the high-profile cameos (Robert De Niro, Don Johnson, Steven Seagal and Jessica Alba), I did NOT like it at ALL. What a waste of time.
