So Ken, Q, and I went to the dollar movies tonight--saw INCEPTION finally. And the people I was YEARNING for a little more along the comic relief line. Or at least for an opportunity to catch my breath. The movie was a thrill ride for sure, but its level of unremitting intensity made me extremely uncomfortable, not unlike like a rock concert that's JUST. SO. LOUD. you're on the threshold of pain the whole time.

On the other hand, I did admire the smartness of the film. Fun to watch something that isn't completely formulaic, you know?

So would you say this was a recommendation? I'm saying yes. Film induced tension is always a catharsis unless it's just too dark. Then you have to go to a double feature, the second one, a comedy.

Have you seen The Social Network yet? It is so very very good. I did, however, love some aspects of Inception a lot--the visuals of the sleepers, particularly hurtling in that van? Truly gorgeous.

Haven't seen it yet. But we intend to. I've heard a lot of good things about it.

Glad the popcorn was yummy.
