Happy Saturday fellow blogians. Blogites. Bloggers. Uh, you know what I mean.
I watched The Hitcher last night. I have to tell ya, I totally expected it to be much worse. Now, I’m not saying it wasn’t kinda bad, but it wasn’t as bad as many other movies I’ve seen in the past months. Plus I can’t help but compare it to the original, which I thought was much better.
I know. I’m the worst “critic” ever. There’s a very specific formula to these things. I’m supposed to open with some witty–and cutting–remark, go into a short summary of the film, and then list the reasons it sucked.
What can I say? I personally think most critics and reviewers have their heads lodged firmly up their own asses, and I would rather not join their ranks. Instead, I suggest you see the movie and form your own opinion. Yeah, you might think it’s shit.
Ya live ya learn.
Let’s see. Oh, right. Novel news. Well, the count is still on the top of the page for those who care. I’ve been averaging 2,000 words a day, but would really like to have a first draft (50,000 words) by the end of the month, which means speeding up the works. Maybe some speed metal will help.
Okay, enough of that. No other writing news. No other news at all.
