A very long movie

We saw Grindhouse today. It's like a double-feature, with the first, "Planet Terror", directed by Robert Rodriguez and the second, "Death Proof", directed by Quentin Tarantino. The two sub-movies were quite different; "Planet Terror" is a post-apocalyptic gory zombie movie and "Death Proof" is about a guy who preys on women from within his death proof car.

Ian preferred "Planet Terror" because it was gory and cool. It was sort of interesting in a B movie horror sort of way. I liked it as long as I didn't believe for one second that it was real. "Death Proof" was gory in a different way. Ian felt that some of that one was slow because it was just women talking, but I felt that it made the movie more real and more scary which is why I prefer this one. The car chases are awesome.

In between the movies were Restricted ratings (no kittens allowed) and some "trailers" for movies. These were awesome, too, and definitely needed - this is not a movie for kids! Overall, we'd recommend this movie if you like these sorts of gory adult movies.

Oh yeah, and I did buy a bunch of fabric today :) It turns out that everything that wasn't already reduced was 40-50% off at the fabric store. I'm not going to tell you how much I spent, but it was more than $0. :)

On another note, my anti-depressant appears to have stopped working entirely. Yeah, some people who are close to me are quite sick and so that could make me more depressed, but I'm pretty sure that this isn't the problem (or at least it isn't the whole problem). I'm going to try to get in to see my doctor this week and hopefully we can get this straightened out.
