Wall-crawler.Posted: March 28, 2011
Stacey got me this awesome, huge, Spider-man poster for Valentine’s Day, and I finally got around to hanging it last week.
I hope that photo does the poster justice. It’s like twice the size of our TV.
(We found out about the poster thanks to an article at BadassDigest.com.)

While I was watching Jumper, I was thinking maybe the movie got a bad rap. It isn’t high art or anything, but I really like the way the filmmakers use quick edits to convey the point of view of the antagonist (he’s a teleporter, kind of like Nightcrawler in X-men 2). And the cinematography is nice. Then the last five minutes of the movie played out, and those five minutes were so stupid that I said, “Yeah, the critics were right, Jumper sucks.”

Stacey and I saw the first hour or so of Sucker Punch. In IMAX. It looked and sounded so good. Then there was a fire alarm. So we had to leave. But just for a few minutes, as there was no actual fire. When we got back to the theater, we waited around for a long while, but the staff couldn’t get the projector working again. Which seems weird. I mean, I assume it’s all digital and whatnot. Can’t you just turn it off, wait ten seconds, then turn it back on?

Netflix has a new competitor with an interesting spin on the whole “streaming movie” thing.
