Random Things I Discovered this Weekend (Adult content edition)

Here’s the wackiness that was my life this past weekend:

  • We watched a movie that had (among other things) war violence, lots of blood, racial slurs, implied sexual assaults, violence against children, extramarital activity, a hero that extolls profiteering and other anti-social behavior, not to mention one of the most dysfunctional families to ever grace the screen.  What’s the movie?  Why, it’s Gone with the Wind, made in the late 1930’s.  And it won a ton of Academy Awards.  Man, I tell you, liberals in Hollywood are sending this country to hell on a handcart, huh?  Oh yeah, it was good.
  • I also watched It Happened One Night, a movie also from the 1930’s.  I think it’s the funniest movie I’ve seen in a long time.  The scene where Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert pretended to be bickering married couple had me laughing out loud.  Twice!  I recommend this one.  And Frank Capra’s awesome. I can’t think of any of his movies that I haven’t loved.
  • The Departed, which Darc and I finally got around to seeing (yeah, we’re a little behind, I’m embarrassed to say), was great.  The story was interesting, but really it was the performances that gave it the gas.  It’s weird to think I once thought Leo DiCaprio was a pretty boy coasting on his good looks.  And that Matt Damon–that guy should marry his agent.
  • For those of you who’ve noticed…I usually find something to like about any movie I see.  I think it’s my subconscious way of saying, “No, Brent, you didn’t waste the last two hours when you could have done something more productive…like stare.”
  • For the record, Cocoa Pebbles has not lost its magic.
  • A Sonic Coke with Bubble Gum add-in is one of the building blocks of our sublime universe.
  • Hurley got a van! You go, dude!
