Did the rental thing again this weekend.

City of Ember
Came out on the tail end of those "nearly adult kids movies" like Narnia2, Golden Compass, the Seeker and a few others. This one was decent. Not terribly plausible from an engineering standpoint, but a fun, suspenseful watch for the kids. Recommended for pre-teens. Might be too "deep" for younger and too "whatever" for older, but good for the target audience.

Gran Torino
Another Mrs dte selection. She enjoyed it more than I did, but I thought it was decent. Eastwood's character is such a bigot that I laughed at many of the lines, which I believe was the intent. Overly PC types might not find it humorous. The action is decent. Good script and good performances. Worth the rental.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
Dallas Cowboys: Punt. Bring on the draft. / / Detroit Red Wings: Dylan Larkin, fastest All-Star EVAH!
