Cool stuff

Went to go see The One, and Monsters Inc. tonight. They were both very cool movies albeit in different ways.

The One is a fun sci-fi action movie. No amazing plot twists, but its plot was well put together and they followed the rules of their world faithfully, so there were no annoying plot gaps (if you were paying attention). There was also a lot of amazing action throughout the whole movie. Jet Li fighting himself as the super-hero and super-villain was amazing. Not all of the effects were perfect, but some scenes (like watching Jet crush someone by smashing him with 2 motorcycles) were just amazing. Jet Li has this awesome grace and smoothness in his fighting. The movie seemed short, but that's only because the final battle sequence came up and it felt like I had just sat down to see the movie.

Monsters Inc. was a cool Pixar movie. If you've liked Pixar's stuff in the past, it won't disappoint. The short they had at the beginning was also great. I'm just amazed at how fun Pixar's movies always are. They aren't something I'd watch all the time, but whenever I do end up watching one, I can't help but get sucked in and just sitting enthralled like a little kid. In fact that's a good way to illustrate how cool the movie was. In a packed theatre where at least half the audience was under 10, there were no random people talking. Just a theatre full of people wrapped up in the story.

Funny moment: I was ranting about how some people could just do silly things at the movies and some of the comments were particularly harsh. Dave responded by saying "Well someone's going to have something to Confess on Sunday" my response: "I don't think so. There's nothing in the bible against being a snide jerk... there is no 'Though Shalt Not Mock' commandment"..... Some people overheard and made disapproving faces, but I still think that's a great idea... "Thou Shalt Not Mock"... hehehe.

I didn't forget. It was just too much back story for a simple joke :-p. If you want to try and explain the whole inconsiderate thing that started with the wheezing lady and then the shifting kid, go right ahead.
FIRST...minor thing... during "The One" Vic's seat was kicked by some goober behind him (and one seat over) who was tapping to the music...just plain fucking annoying

ok, the wheezing lady....as we walked out of "the One" we passed the restrooms where this VERY large, old lady was walking, going from the restrooms back to the theatre.. well, this lady was wheezing and i don't mean like ashmatic wheezing, I mean like "I just climbed everest in 2minutes and i needa catch my breath" wheezing... What was funny is that Vic had trouble making the long trip that was trying to get around her. When we got outside we commented that you know you're out of shape when you get winded taking a crap....

next...the "kid" ugh... ok, I understand that ppl w/ "special" kids have the right to go watch a movie and such, but they should also have the courtesy toward the other patrons to remove the child if it gets unruly (thankfully, these folks did this...after 30minutes). Anyway, this kid was making this sound..almost a grunt that sounded like a small import vehicle shifting gears...personally, I wanted to bust out laughing at first, but Vic seemed fairly annoyed...but, after like 20minutes, even I was annoyed... Vic went on a mini-rant which I'm sure the folks next to him heard (and i'm even more sure agreed with even though they'd hate to admit that)... he is the one that inspired the "Thou shalt not mock" comment
