Not the bees!

Thanks to the Friendly Atheist, I have discovered that the end is once again near.

That is to say, the Left Behind book series is apparently getting a new treatment on film after crazy actor turned fundie Kirk Cameron did so well with it. Granted, a lot of them now believe the world is about to end anyway, thanks to Obama being re-elected, heh. I think I’d rather watch Resident Evil: Afterlife again.

And the best part is that reportedly, Nicolas Cage will star in this film reboot. There’s just something so appropriate about signing up one of our zaniest actors to star in a movie like this. They also included one of my favorite moments of Nicolas Cage losing his mind on film, although there are of course some wonderful montages out there.


So, we went to see Red Tails

…this evening, aided by the fact that Sue’s home PC is still busted (for weeks now, still not fixed) and so she is open to suggestion on things to do. I read some reviews that looked like it would be a fun time, which it was; and I’m also hoping it does well after hearing of the troubles George Lucas had in making this movie happen. So it was fun, and it was funny, and thankfully the sappy Lucas dialogue all went to the white fellas in the movie. She thinks he tiptoed around the issue of racism, but I don’t think so. It just wasn’t the focus of the movie. If anything was, it was CGI action!

…of course, I have heard from some doves on Daily Kos about it, and their issues with the movie glorifying war…but they remind me, I’m not quite as liberal as I might think.

Anyway, other than Sue cracking up at every mention of Black Jesus – you will just have to see the movie – well, I was chuckling too, but I blame Boondocks. It’s a good joke. Deserves some laughs.
