Play for today

Really nice weekend. Nothing criminal went on for Saint Patty's day. I went out with some of the guys to Rancho's in North Park which has become my favorite Mexican restaurant in the city. Afterwards we went to Hamburger Mary's to drink and smoke. It was a gay fest in there, I hope the guys didn't mind. Then we hit up Cj's which is a small neighborhood sports bar around Matt's place.

Saturday I spent it chilling with Mona and Cibele and Van. We went to see V for Vendetta, which was surprisingly good. I was expecting it to be some dumb action movie, and considering that it was written by the Wachowski brothers, and their incredible let-down of a movie called Matrix Revolutions, it didn't seem like this film had anything going for it in my book. But I did hear some buzz about it this weekend so I thought, hey what the fuck? V for Vendetta is unusually good. The story is actually very well constructed. There's more politics in the film than action scenes which in my opinion makes the action scenes that much cooler. All in all its worth watching.

I also saw another little gem at the recommendation of Mona. The movie Oldboy is a Korean film-noir mystery gore movie cast in the same spirit as Takashi Miike films, though the gore is a little less glorified and over the top than in Miike's films. Oldboy's main character, Oh Dae-Su, is kidnapped by a mysterious group and forced to live in an apartment room as a prisoner for fifteen years. Upon being released, its time to figure out who wanted him locked up and why. The fight scenes in this film, though its not an action movie and they are not the film's focus, are really refreshing. They are very wet and raw and real. There is a brawl that occurs in the film where Oh Dae-Su takes out a gang of twenty or thirty guys. Many action flicks will default to a barrage of snazzy martial arts, elevating the hero's fighting skills to what you would see in a comic book. Not this film. If a man were able to beat the shit out of twenty guys in a hallway in real life, then this is what it would look like. Oldboy is out on video.
