Living internationally has its benefits–seeing movies early is one of them. I had my second to last finals yesterday, and went to the mall with friends to a movie. This is not something I would usually do, since malls are not my scene. But a friend convinced me, and I’d already baked 3 cakes to bleed out my stress from the tests. After tomorrow, I’m done with school for 4 months!
On Iron Man II. I liked it. But I have found I have liked every movie I’ve seen recently; there is always something interesting, or romantic, or some good tech, or an interesting political problem. Even in the worst movies, I play Guess The Plot, which keeps it fun. This particular movie was not the revelation Iron Man was, but it had interesting tech and some fun dialogue. I won’t go any deeper than that. Go see it for yourself in a week, when it comes out in the U.S.
“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”–J. Lubbock
