Today Despina and I went out to Carindale to go to Big W to take advantage of their big DVD sale that they've got going. Unfortunately the one movie that I really wanted to get from it was surprisingly sold out. Not happy.
Added to that utterly depressing performances from Arsenal recently, and banging my head on our wardrobe, I did not have a good start to the day.
Anyway, I did buy a couple of movies: I got a double pack containing Fantastic Four, and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen for a cheap $20 (right). Despite wanting to, I've never seen these movies before, and I figured hiring them out would very likely cost more than buying them. The other one i got was The Hunt for Red October for a very cheap $9.
So with all the movies I thought I would devote most of this entry to stuff on that subject. At the cinemas right now, is Snakes on a Plane. As with most other people, I too wonder how people could take this movie at all seriously. Down at the road from work, the canteen had this hilarious promotional card for people to take. lol
On some upcoming movie news, I'm finding it hard to believe that they are actually making another Rocky movie. If there was one movie franchise that surely dead and finished, I would have thought that Rocky would be up there.
Yes, they are making a Rocky VI, although it is entitled Rocky Balboa. I wonder if the people that make The Family Guy knew that this movie is actually being made when they included this hilarious scene in an episode that went to air earlier this year. lol so true. See the trailer for the new Rocky movie here. Adriaaaaann! I mean seriously, how many times can they do this?
To life blogging: after the results last night I've decided to stop following Arsenal (my football team) as closely as I do, it's just way too depressing at the moment.
Last night, I went to a buck's night for my sister's future husband, which meant taking a tour of the nightclubs in the Valley. Although clubbing in Queensland these days is a much more palatable experience since the fantastic new anti-smoking laws came into effect, i still personally despise clubbing. I just don't see the point of standing around claustrophobic, crowded (although now smoke free) areas whilst the music is so deafeningly loud you can't even have a good conversation with the person next to you. Plus the whole being married thing makes it even more pointless. Instead, give me a nice restaurant and some drinks with friends any day.
Overall, I've had a good weekend.
