So I went to the movies today with some friends, and as you might be able to tell from the title of todays blog post, we saw Kickass, almost by a real stroke of luck. We kind of started out with the intention of seeing Clash of the Titans, but it was in 3D, so it would have been a little bit more expensive. So we kind of ambled down to the cinema and decided that we weren't going to go see Sam Worthington in a skirt, but we would go and see a bit of McLovin in Kickass instead.
Just on a side note, I'm not a really big fan of 3D movies. I don't mind the kind of 3D exhibits that some theme parks, because the most that they ever normally go for is about 30 minutes, not normally a lot longer than that. The problem with 3D movies for me is that I'll either have to put the funny glasses on top of my normal glasses, or take my glasses off completely, which are both two very uncomfortable options for 2-3 hour movies. Just so you know.
I must say that I was really impressed with the movie, it was quite funny, in such a way that what was going on in the movie at times was kind of a bit too farfetched to actually be taken seriously. Like, there was a fair amount of violence in the movie, but they were still able to maintain the humour of the movie during the violent scenes. Or maybe it's just our desensitised generation. I don't really know. All in all, it was a pretty ace movie in my opinion, and one that I would probably get on DVD, which is kind of a rarity to be honest.
For today, sticking with the film-y vibe, the "Thing to do in Sydney" is go check out the Sydney Film Festival, I've heard great things about this to be honest. And just a general nice way to pass the time, by seeing a pretty good movie. And after the surfing lesson and hanggliding, too, it might me nice to have a bit of a relaxing time. Or maybe not, if you like that kind of thing.
