well, we ended up watching Matchstick Men last night instead of The Hunt For Red October. i was a tad bummed, but it was fun to see something i hadn’t seen before.

to be honest i was a little disappointed. i think i had a bad set up. my brother and clint said the movie had “a crazy twist” at the end, so the whole time i was watching it, i was totally reading into everything and analyzing everything and yet trying desperately not to so i would be surprised. yeah, well, it didn’t work. i didn’t necessarily figure it out, but because i suspected something from the beginning, it was kind of a let down. i guess b/c i love spy/heist/twisty movies and such, a simple double-cross isn’t that amazing to me. there was no “wow” factor to this movie. it was like, “oh, it was all one big con.” i was waiting for something like the Truman Show where you realize it’s all an alternate reality or something. anyway… so it wasn’t as exciting as i was hoping. and i was kinda bummed the girl was “bad” if you will, b/c i thought she was really cute.
