I've got a paper to write for Classical Rhetoric (ENGL 310), Studies in Elegies (ENGL 318), and a chapter to write for the novel writing class! (CREW 440) In the meantime I guess I'll just do a bunch of things that are totally unrelated!
- Here's a review for you: Wolfman. I saw this film with my dad on Tuesday night, even though people have been saying terrible things about it. Before I saw it my thoughts were, "It has Anthony Hopkins and Benicio del Toro! How can it go wrong!?" After seeing it my thoughts are, "What did you expect? It's the Wolfman!" (It's the same as when Phantom of the Opera came out. We all knew the story. Did we expect them to re-invent the wheel?) The acting was good, the atmospheric art direction was great, but it wasn't really anything new.
- I'm also reading In the Mountains of Madness, the great American horror classic by H.P. Lovecraft, finally. It took me forever to get around to it, and now I can't put it down! I was reminded about this short novel when I'd read that Guillermo del Toro has expressed interest in adapting it to film.
- Next week I plan to attend Malaspina Theatre's production of HMS Pinafore with the English Student's Association. Maybe I'll be inspired to review it in my blog! Does that step on the Navigator's toes? Oh well!
Anyhow, these are three things that I'm into right now instead of term papers. Am I the only one off track? Share your thoughts!
