Tomorrow’s looking bad...

I'm glad I relaxed and watched a bunch of movies today, because I've got to pull a solo shift at work tomorrow, which should be loads of fun. (Note the sarcasm dripping from that last part there).

Last night, just after I posted, I watched the original theatrical ending for "The Butterfly Effect." While the director's cut was much more depressing, I thought the ending was more effective than the one from the theatrical edition. I won't spoil either ending for you, but I will say, if you haven't seen the movie yet, watch the director's cut first, then watch the ending for the theatrical edition. Don't do it the other way around, because the alternate ending won't make sense without some other scenes that have been added to the director's cut.

I watched all my Netflix movies today, and I have to say, I actually enjoyed all of them. Sure "The Princess Diaries" was sappy, but Anne Hathaway is really cute. And "The Core" was completely ridiculous in terms of its science, but it was fun to watch (and hey, the black guy in the group wasn't the first one to die). Last was "Collateral Damage," which was my least favorite of the three. It was OK, but I'd rather watch "Predator" or "T2" or just about any other Arnold action flick.

Oh, by the way, "The Real Slim Shady" moved back ahead of "Cleanin' Out My Closet" into the No. 5 spot on my most played list, 35-34. Although, if you added up different versions of the identical song (not remixes), Britney's "I'm a Slave 4 U" would be No. 5. The version from "Britney" has been played 33 times, the album version off the "I'm a Slave 4 U" single has been played once and the album version from the "Overprotected" single has been played twice. This is basically a Britney phenomenon for me. At least three of her songs would jump up a few spots if I combined playcounts. But I don't do it that way.
