Entertainment escape from reality

I watched The Exorcism of Emily Rose last weekend. Nothing special. The courtroom acting was entertaining. The theater was packed, we sat near the front, and the movie was a bit shaky, especially during the “actual exorcism” scenes, so I didn’t really have that great of a time. Yeah, I’m weak sauce when it comes to motion sickness. At least I didn’t have to leave after the first 5 minutes and ask for a refund like I did at The Bourne Identity. That first boat scene was not beej-friendly.

I’m hooked on that show called So you think you can dance. I love how they can do different dances with just a few days’ practice.

Here are 2 movies I need to see:

    Memoirs of a Geisha
    The Chronicles of Narnia

But first, the books. I totally remember OJ reading the first one way back in the olden days.

Hey, there’s a Disneyland in HK now. It’s on Lantau Island where the big buddha is. I miss that side of the planet…:(

I had to take my car in to get the turn signals fixed. No, they weren’t working and I almost got my arm ripped off by a motorcyclist when I was using those arm signals. I really need to get a more reliable Japanese car.
