Back Again

Today, my back is finally good enough again for me to get back to my regular life. I ended up missing three days of school this week, and spent most of that time flat on my back on my sofa, watching some DVD or other. I made it 2/3 of the way through season 1 of 'Lost', got to the end of season 3 of 'Friends', watched 'Batman Begins' (finally found out who the heck Katie Holmes was), and last night, got around to watching 'Crash'. It wasn't a bad film, but it felt very 'TV-movie', so in retrospect, I'm a bit surprised that it managed to win the Oscar for best film. Looking back at the nominated films, it's the first of the bunch that I've seen, funny enough. Hmm, I need to spend more time at the cinema.

Oh, one of these days, I will write a blog entry listing all the things I miss about Boston; I had cheesecake for dessert last night, and it got me thinking...

Just looked up Crash on the imdb to get that link above. And, surprise surprise, writer/director Paul Haggis' career has been completely in television. No wonder it had that TV feel.

LOST...amazing!

Batman Begins was worth it purely for Christian Bale.

I like Crash but I do not think it deserves the Oscar win.

Lost is awesome.

Hmm, I guess I'd heard his name before too, but I didn't recognize him from anything else.

I have yet to see Brokeback. It's out on DVD next week, so I'm starting to think I'll just end up renting it. Which reminds me, I still need to see the Hulk.

Boston misses you too.
Go see Good Night and Good Luck.
