Tonight we continued our Oscar 2009 tour by watching Changeling. We both liked it. The first ten minutes or so kind of sucked. It felt like Clint Eastwood was taking a cat nap in the director's chair and no one wanted to wake him so they just filmed the first few scenes without him. Angelina Jolie just sort of held her hand over her face and pursed her lips a lot until he woke up and started telling her what to do. Then the movie got good. And it stayed good for the next six hours or so. The movie is not short if you catch my drift. It clocks in at 142 minutes.

Last week we watched Burn After Reading and Man on Wire. (I signed us up for Blockbuster by mail thing as you might have guessed.) Man on Wire was awesome! It was such an inspirational movie. I'm also a huge sucker for documentaries so it had that going for it. Burn After Reading was also good. But again, I'm a huge sucker for the Coen brothers. It was another one of their "everyones' problems are solved by the death of someone else" movies. The cast was great in it. Highly recommended.

Not much else has been happening this weekend. It snowed again, so that sucked. I did make a meal tonight that is probably one of the weirdest things I've ever made. Peanut butter chicken stir-fry. It was good.
