jobs suck

it is amazing how little time you have to surf the blogshere when you have a 8-4 job to go to. i apologize for updating sporadically and then usually only with movie reviews (i take time out to feed my main vice, and the others suffer) but i will try to get better. in the mean time i'd check out the boileryard where nick from net politik contributes. it is worth the read and pays homage to baseball. how can you go wrong?

by the way, my job doesn't really suck.


grade: A

this is a really good film. while i am not a fan of cruise, i can respect his work, and in collateral he plays a superb villain. foxx brings a humanity and depth to a role that you'd never expect from the star of booty call. with excellent supporting roles, this film is cast as well as a coen brothers film, and the plot works well. while the ending and plot twists are obvious from the beginning, you really enjoy the ride. go see it, its one of the best this year. mann is the, well, man.

views from the classroom

after polling my classrooms (8th and 10th) i have found that they, too are split on who should be the next president. they are also evenly split on gay marriage, which does surprise me. it is amazing to see how much some of these students know about the issues. my biggest goal is to get them thinking about the issues without besieging them with my views. hopefully i'll get them to care about politics more than my generation does.

the village

grade: B

this movie was ok, but shayamalan seems to still be in his rut. in other words,you know that there will be a twist and that you'll see him in there eventually. i did like the aspect of the 1800's as a utopia, even though i am totally against that personally. if you like his stuff then check it out.
