We caught the new Matt Damon movie, the Green Zone, Saturday. I had really been looking forward to this one, since I generally like Matt Damon movies - particularly the Bourne series. More on that in a bit....
Lots of previews of coming attractions before the feature started. We got to see a longer trailer for Iron Man 2, which looks really cool (movie comes out in May, I think). Also saw a trailer for a movie called "The Losers" that looks interesting... I'd embed trailer videos for both films, but I'm at work and the work server's no-likey youtube.
We still haven't been to see "The Crazies" yet... maybe next weekend.
From the look of the trailers for The Green Zone that I had seen, I was expecting sort of a "Jason Bourne in Baghdad" movie.... and as such it kinda fell short. Not really fair to the movie, but that was my reaction. The first part of the movie was really slow, in comparison to the Bourne films. Good action in the last 30 minutes or so, but to get there you had to sit through a good deal of "US Government=Bad" crap. Its the fairly typical Hollywood viewpoint that once you get above the level of boot on the ground soldier (or Chief Warrant Officer, this case), everyone in the military or government is a douchebag liar.
Generally I can just acknowledge that bias and move on, if the action and acting is sufficiently interesting... but in this case it wasn't. At least not for me.
Saturday evening we got to go to our first Rodeo event for this season. It was a PBR sanctioned tour event in Mesquite (Professional Bull Riders Assoc). Two hours of non-stop bull riding ONLY. Pretty good bulls at this turn out, though not on par with National Finals stock. Really good evening. I shot some cool video, since my still camera doesn't do very well indoors at long range with fast moving targets.
My dinosaur of a computer is really slow processing video, and I'm on call this week so I don't know when I'll get around to editing. I'll post some clips when I do. There were some awesome rides and tough looking wrecks as well.
