[life] insomnia versus the movie trailer  
Can't sleep, so I'm watching movie trailers. This happens once a month or so, but I don't usually talk about it. Chronicles of Narnia looks interesting, and I am starting to have the hope that they will do it justice. Miss Congeniality 2 looks dumb, of course, but one part did make me laugh, so I'll watch it when it comes on television, I'm sure. They made a sequel to xXx and it doesn't have Vin Diesel in it; instead, they have some new triple x and in the tradition of sequels that cut out his character (The Fast and the Furious comes to mind) I will not be watching it, which is vaguely disappointing, as I could use a good, mindless action movie. However, as Keya knows, The Pacifier may make up for that lack. Kids or not, he's still damn hot in the trailer and it made me laugh. Would be much better to watch it with her, though, because we'd crack each other up in the theater and embarrass Dad #2. Much like we did when we saw Resident Evil and watched a Vin Diesel trailer (I want to say for xXx) and we both made the same noise when he first came on the screen, and I think Dad #2 was truly disturbed by us. But it was fun and funny.

And, um, now that I've watched a Vin Diesel trailer, I'm ready to go to bed. Hmmm.

One more day until vacation and then I can write and watch movies and enjoy myself. Woo.

How could they not have him in it? YEESH.

I don't know! Especially considering they set up a sequel so well at the end of the first.

Vin Diesel makes mindless action movies, like triple x.
The only movie he's in that I've enjoyed so far is Pitch Black. It was at least entertaining.

Look for rumors of a new Conan movie. No action film beats Conan.

Well yes. That's one of the things I like about him; I rather enjoy mindless action movies. Though I also liked Pitch Black; it's probably my favorite of his movies, though I've not yet seen The Iron Giant or Saving Private Ryan.

I've never seen a Conan movie. I'll have to see what I can find.

Saving Private Ryan is a good fucking film. Good film. If you like that watch Band of Brothers. Wonderful miniseries.

Watch Conan the Barbarian. Great action flim. You should like it.

I do need to watch both of those. We Were Soliders is also one that people say you should watch with those two, and I love it, so I'm going to give the other two a try.

I will sometime! Thanks. I never actually thought about watching Conan, but I do like good action films.

Ah, now, that was fun. Good memories.

Great memories. And we'll make more soon, I'm sure.
