Word on the street has it that a really awesome movie is coming out tomorrow: Watchmen. As a proud geek, Wes is beside himself with elation. He’s read the graphic novel and practically let out a shout of jubilation when we saw the first preview for the movie. I have no idea what the story is about and I’ve never read a graphic novel, but it looks like fun so I’m happy to go along.
So that’s this week’s Thing That Does Not Suck. Yes, it’s seriously expensive to go to the movies, but just knowing that this movie is out there, and made well, and that rabid fans are pleased with the production makes me happy. It’s a sign that no matter how horrible life gets, and how much we have to sacrifice for our dreams, there will be movies out there to entertain and transport us whenever we scrape together enough quarters to pay for the pleasure.
I could add in here that Wes and I have decided to go see the movie on Sunday, and the prospect of an imminent date qualifies as a Thing That Does Not Suck for me, but the date itself can’t be this week’s Thing because, well, it’s not nearly as much fun for you as it will be for me.
You know what else doesn’t suck? Polls. I love them. I love to take them, and I love to put them in posts. Have a vote, won’t you?
