Can’t Find a Good Movie

Saturday night, Leonard was at his homecoming dance while Barry was partying in Columbus *, so Miss and I decided to go out for dinner and a movie… Believe it or not, we sat through major portions of two “D” movies (Missy’s official ratings).   We walked out of the first movie, “Eagle Eye” about 45 minutes into the ‘story’ after we decided that we were tired of watching a movie with as much plot-depth as Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner.  Since the selections at the Cinema were pretty sparse, we ended up catching the new teen love story “Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist“.   This is just another retread of the tired genre called ‘teen-coming-of-age-and-looking-for-love’ movie (for you older folks, think “Pretty in Pink“).

As I noted some time ago, the large disparity between the critic’s ratings and the user’s ratings is always interesting.  I’m fairly certain that Yahoo movie ratings are manipulated by the same people that read Daily Koz (one of the most derisory left wing web sites) and flood on-line polls…

* OSU students are always partying, but I know that Bear was even happier after the Buckeye win over Wisconsin.
