As I sit here, putting off pages of reading I have due tomorrow morning, I decided now would be a great time to hone my new-found blogging skills and procrastinate from any real productivity. Or rather, what professors see as real productivity. Who's to say writing a blog isn't productive? Yea, my professors will probably lower my grade because I know none of the material. Oh well.
Watching a movie is a unique escape, a brief amount of time where you can be absorbed in another world. Reading has similar affects, and I love it as well, but there's something about the ensemble that is required in movies that appeals to me. I respect movies for what they're trying to do. I give a movie like Dumb and Dumber a 9/10, because it's one of my favorite comedies. I've seen it ten thousand times and always laugh, and it has a great diarrhea gag. Then I'll see a movie like The Reader and give it an 8.4/10. Does it mean I really think Dumb and Dumber a better movie? Of course not. They are different movies made to achieve different means.
