in the beginning...

well it's finally here. after countless nights of boredom in bed, i've decided that i need a place to express my late night ramblings. this will be that place, and you are the first to visit it...so...welcome to my world and thank you for visiting.

i'd like to begin with a review of Poseidon, one of the worst movies i've seen in a longgg time:

Poseidon (Kurt russel, richard dreyfuss, Josh Lucas)

I like action movies and I like action movies that take place on cruise ships, however I don't like Josh Lucas movies and I dont like Josh Lucas movies that take place on cruise ships. I have a theory that most of Josh Lucas's roles were written for Mathew Mconaughy (Dazed and Confused), once they were turned down by him they were then passed on to Bo Laramie (paparazzi,The Break Up) who also turned them down, finally these roles were handed to Josh Lucas. For those of you unlucky enough to see Glory Road, you now have your second chance to see Josh Lucas reprise his role as a cocky, self rightous Southerner. Poseidon, a remake of the 1972 classic "The Poseidon Adventure" fails to stimulate audiences at any point, and is laughable throughout most of its 99 minute overstay. Poseidon, a mega cruise ship sailing through the calm sea on New years eve meets an unexpected force of nature. The passengers, regailing in their lavish surroundings, are celebrating the new year when out of nowhere a rogue tidal wave capsizes the ship. I dont know what a rogue tidal wave is, I dont even know if it's a real thing, but apparantly the crew members take it very seriously. So does Richard Dreyfuss. Once the ship is turned on its bottom, a few passengers (led by Kurt Russel and Josh Lucas) attempt to navigate their way through fire, water, and lots of overacting. Warner Bros. supposedly spent over $140 million dollars on this movie which has brought in 1/6 of that in almost three weeks. ouch. i would like to end this review with three words: Josh Lucas sucks.

In other news, Tim Duncan, all-star center for the San Antonio Spurs, really reminds me of a sleepy bear. Does anyone else see the resemblance?
