Back to the Movies

I finally saw a movie last night for the first time in ages. The movie I saw was The Hours. Now it has been a while since I have done a review so cut me a little slack. The acting was great and the story though a bit confusing, once seen in its entirety was actually very good. I will admit it was a bit slow and at some points I was left questioning what the movie was actually about. I don't want to give away too much, but for once I think I figured out the central theme of a film. The story basically takes place in three different time periods and each time period revolves around a different woman, who is struggling with her situation. The women are eventually linked and their struggles are all shown to be similar, but with each woman's problem resolved in a different way. I would recommend this to any serious movie goers who want to see some Oscar worthy performances. I don't think the movie itself is worthy of a Best Picture nod, and from the way the Golden Globes turned out it looks like Chicago will probably take the Best Picture Oscar. I hope to see it tonight and see if it really lives up to the hype.

I believe that is all for today. It looks like the cold weather will be here through the end of the week, but look for a nice warm spell at the beginning of next week (highs expected to be in the mid 30's).

Okay one more story, from this morning. I was sitting at my desk tapping away at the keyboard, updating the journal and I received a phone call from somebody who needed help with some database. I told her I would look at it and went back to the journal, within five minutes she called back thanking me for taking care of her issue. The funny thing is that I didn't do a damn thing, gotta love that.

That's my blood on me
Seems poured from the hands of angels
And trickles into the ground
The warehouse so bare and empty
And my hearts numbered beats
Will echo in this empty room
You know and the fear wells in me
And nothing seems big enough to go
Oh I'm goin away
Though i'd love so much to stay
