my head hurts.

Woke up this morning with a pounding headache. I’m trying to make sure that this cold I’m getting / have gotten doesn’t take over and reboot my system.

This weekend we watched a few good movies. 28 Days Later, directed by Danny Boyle (Trainspotting). What a bloody wild ride that was. I found myself almost unable to move afterwards. Also, some of the shots and direction were so good I almost cried, they were so beautiful. Amazing amazing amazing. Ever since I took Contemporary Cinema in university, where we focussed on British cinema of the 1980s and early 1990s, I’ve been really interested in directors like Boyle, Stephen Frears, and Neil Jordan. Looking at IMDB, now I’m interested in seeing Dirty Pretty Things.

In the more run-of-the-mill category, we also saw Runaway Jury. Which was alright. I think that Rachel Weisz could have been better, but otherwise it was a pretty good legal drama. I kinda predicted the ending though.

  1. While I’ll have to admit that I didn’t really watch it for it’s artistic value, I didn’t really enjoy 28 Days Later… perhaps it warrants a re-watching.
