Off to see it again this afternoon.
That’s about all.
Oh, and in other news, I got an MMS from my glorious smartarse of a brother-in-law in Australia yesterday. Some fifteen years back, when he turned forty, I made him a T-shirt reading “I’m 40, so STFU.”
Yesterday, he got into it and sent me a photo.

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends.
Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages?
I am Hatboy.

So is DP2 a must-see in the theater? You are the sole decider on this one.
Don’t know about must-see, although they certainly deserve every box office boost you can give them and there are some spectacular effects that are fun to see up-close and personal.
I know what a high premium you put on your cinema-visits, so I’m still going to say “yes”, but take it from someone who is heavily biased.
Yeah, it’s a good night out at the movies all ’round, fuck it. I’m all in.
Oh I’m pretty fucking biased on this one, too! OK next weekend it is!
I think you made the right choice there.
