Daily Hoop Conversation:
Tink: I had a dream that we committed a crime and were on the run.
Hoop: Oh yeah? What did we do?
Tink: I don't know. The dream started after we did it.
Hoop: Well, that kind of takes the fun out of it.
Tink: I know! So then we beat this random chick up so I'd feel better.
Daily Hoop Conversation 2:
Tink: I had a dream that everyone was turning into zombies.
Hoop: That sucks.
Tink: Yeah, but they were slow zombies. So I just walked around them.
Hoop: Was I a zombie?
Tink: Uh huh. Then you ran off to find some food because I was immune from the zombie virus and you couldn't kill me.
Hoop: Mmmm. Brains.
Tink: And Duff (our dog) was a zombie too. Then I went to a wedding and the couple turned into zombies just as they were saying "I do". It was really sad.
Hoop: Sounds like it.
Tink: But then a priest stopped me on the way out of the chapel and gave me some green hacky sacks. He said, "Here my child. These will help you." But there were only five, so I had to use them wisely.
Hoop: Hacky sacks?
Tink: They only LOOKED like hacky sacks. If you threw them on the ground and stomped on them, they released a zombie anti-virus.
Tink: I tried to be slick and break one in-between the newly married couple, hoping it would cure them both. But it only cured them for a few minutes. So then I cured Duff and we went looking for you.
Hoop: Good plan.
Tink: I know.
The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford
Do yourself a favor and throw away your money right now. This movie was so horrible, Hoop and I stopped watching it 9/10ths of the way through. We couldn't even stand to stick around for the last ten minutes of the movie. At least twenty minutes of the film was taken up with Brad Pitt staring off into space, or at someone, who was likewise staring off into space. More than once I screamed at the screen, "DO SOMETHING!" Movies should not be this painful to watch. The real shame of it was that I insisted on buying this hunk of junk because I was sure it was going to be a keeper. Hoop and I gave this movie zero out of five sporks.
One word, HOT. Hot actors, hot action, hot superpower. Sign me up for a sequel! After a sad run of reject-movies, Hoop and I were glad to find something with a little more "oomph" in it. The movie goes quick and the special effects keep you hooked. There is definitely some charisma between Hayden Christensen and Rachel Bilson. Although I wouldn't call this the blockbuster of the year, it's definitely worth the price of admission. Hoop and I give this flick four out of five sporks.
