Inception at the Cinema

So I saw Inception at the cinema last Friday. It is maybe the third film I’ve seen in the cinema this summer and possibly only 4th or 5th at all this calendar year. Walking out of the theater, two young guys in front of me were talking. The first guy said: “Well, there goes two and a half hours of my life I’ll never get back.” The other said: “Yeah, it was definitely a film for people who got a 25 on the ACT.”

My thought was: “Yes, thankfully, there are a lot of us.”

Fact of the matter is, I don’t think I took the ACT–my school was an SAT kind of school. But if I had, I doubt I would have gotten a 25. I’m smart but I’m no MENSA candidate.

But I enjoyed the film. How much? Well, let’s put it like this: I don’t really like Leonardo DiCaprio. At all. Really. Not one bit. But I thought he was excellent in the film. I thought every aspect of the film was excellent. The score, the acting, the locations, the sets, the cast, the direction, and so forth. I won’t say anything about the film itself in this review–I don’t want to give anything away. But I felt immediately after watching it that it was the best piece of cinema I had seen since the tail end of the ’90s when The Matrix and Fight Club blew my socks off.

Warbirds is Live!

The Warbirds of Mars Web comic went live yesterday. Take a look. Scott Vaughn came up with the idea and draws the pretty pictures. I write the offensive words and suggest cheesecake shots for Scott to draw, when I’m not making his life difficult asking him to draw Washington, D.C. or a B-24 Bomber from the inside.

WordPress Ahoy!

At long last, the new Web site and blog are up. I’ll try to keep it fresh and current. In the credit where credit is due department, Tim Conley was great help in getting WordPress onto my site.

Have a look around the site. There’s info about “Resurrect”, links to some Web comics I’m doing, stuff about my writing struggle, and some things that inspire me.

The WordPress thing is new for me, so let me know if you spot problems with the site.
