My Bloody Valentine 3D was actually pretty good. Not sure if it was worth the $11 I spent to see it in 3D, but still pretty good. There were a few homages to the original that I liked enormously, like the dropping of the mining suits and the body in the clothes dryer... (but I still say a clothes dryer wouldn't get hot enough to melt flesh.)
Digital 3D is also pretty damn cool. Other than a mild headache trying to readjust my eyes after the movie, it worked much better than the last movie I saw in 3D. (That would be Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare, where the last 15-20 minutes were 3D. Didn't really work that well.)
John and I went to Ziggie's for dinner after the show and ended up leaving after 15 minutes of being ignored by the wait staff. We wound up down the road at Steak & Shake, where we had our dinner in under 5 minutes.
It was good hanging out with John. I no longer am angry with him, and I'm no longer finding myself wishing to reconcile with him beyond friendship. Kind of amazing what time and distance do for emotional pain.
Then it was home. I wound up watching Saw V which arrived from Netflix yesterday. Less of a mindfuck than the previous four, plus if had Darla from Buffy. Honestly though, the series, while occasionally godo but mostly mediocre should have ended with this one. Well, actually, they could have ended with 3, but I suppose as long as people are willing to pay, we'll continue to get sequels.
I do have some things I want to post about, but I'm finding I'm kind of pooped. So I'll posit a question for everyone tonight, then post my thoughts tomorrow.
Here's the question.
Assuming there is a perfect divine being, and that said perfect divine being through some manner created the world and by extension humanity, How is it that we, creations of a divine and perfect being, are not perfect beings ourselves?
