The movie The Kingdom was surprisingly good. It had been on my list for a while, but when we were at Blockbuster Saturday night, it sounded just right. I highly recommend it. The open of the movie, whether factual or 'spiced up', was an interesting partly animated, partly real footage montage building up a history leading up to the realities of the movie. In one of the DVD's extras, the director explained the action of this movie as the first two thirds drawing a bow and arrow, and the last third, releasing the arrow. It was tense for around 15-20 minutes toward the end. The movie is good.
Also this weekend, my cousin Damon was supposed to fly in, and his sister Chase was going to have a party/lunch/family thing. Due to the crappy weather Friday, Damon's flight was cancelled, but the festivities continued. We got to see a very relaxed, smily baby Cousin Wes and a VERY animated Cousin Avery! It never came to mind to take pictures of them. Be jealous.. both were cute and hilarious. Food, family, fun.. it was great.
Chris has a new camcorder and is getting inspired to resurrect ACTV. It's a really cool camera for the price, and may be the catalyst we need. More updates as they become available.
