Went and met a FB-Friend in Real-Life, did lunch, chatted a bit, and caught Will Smith's new movie After Earth.

Reviewers seemed to hate it (11% approval). But it was much better rated by viewers (36%). And I thought it was about as good as the Star Trek movie. Not as good of action, or even pacing, but the story was much more unique. And made some effort to be original with their view of Tech Advances, and coming up with original lines.

You have to wonder where the idea of guns went -- I'd much rather shoot bad things than only use a fancy sword on them. But I figure Liberals got their way on gun control, and life was now more dangerous for everyone, this is what it would be like.

That isn't to say it was great. It was obviously a way for Will Smith to help his son advance his mediocre career. But his son did fine, and I didn't walk out feeling cheated for my money. But it wasn't horribly memorable or "good" either. Just a way to kill 2 hours, if you're bored. Waiting for video will lose you nothing in translation.

Just a list of things I’ve watched, read, seen, heard about, and so on, that I had some commentary on. You get what you pay for, and this is free advice: hopefully you're getting a bargain. My comments are meant to give you enough to know if I did/didn't like something, with enough breadcrumbs on why to know if that means you would or wouldn't like it as well.
