Movie classics!

I watched "The Seventh Seal" via netflix not too long ago. It was interesting, and there were a lot of things I could appreciate about the film, but I felt it was a little overhyped. It starred Max Von Sydow in one of his first roles. I recognized the name, but couldn't put a face to it. After watching the film....I... Still didn't recognize him :P I looked him up in IMDB and saw a recent photo, and an epiphany happened.

OH! THAT GUY!

And that was the end of that.

Earlier today, I thought I might try another "classic" I had never seen. This one, we own. I decided to try watching Dune. I think I have tried to watch it before, but fell asleep in the middle or somthing. I don't remember. Anyway. It also had Max Von Sydow! WTF! Maybe I should just go through and watch all his classics.

Anyway...

Most confusing movie ever. I could go on and on about how strange and odd and confusing and nonsensical it was, but you only need 3 words: Patrick Stewart Mullet.

Yes. Counterbalanced by a 95% naked Sting, offset by that Al from Quantum Leap. Weirdest shit ever. I tried really hard to follow the story, but the main character didn't seem to have much motivation to me, and all the strange whisperings of internal thoughts was totally distracting.

Also, that little kid was creepy.

I just didn't get it. I keep hearing "Oh, but you should read the book!" And maybe I should! But I'm talking about the movie.. which has it's own following. I mean, the whole thing is visually interesting, and Sting was totally a hot peice of ass back then, but come on XP

I forgot where I was going with all that.

Anyway, I've been feeling super crampy and gross today, but I still managed to clock in 46 min of hard cardio on the bike, and get my weight lifting done. yay!
