Confused at the Museum

Watched Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian today. It was one of those lazy afternoon movies and it caught me in just the right position on the couch to watch it. Now admittedly, I was in and out of conscious throughout the movie, but I really couldn't tell you the plot if you gave me a million bucks. It seemed like a CGI, mish-mosh of twenty things that don't go together. Next time I bump into Ben Stiller on the street I'll have to ask him.

The day of mindless movies continued tonight as I watched a bit of Transformers 2. I'll never forgive Michael Bay for that debacle.

But, don't you worry out there entertainment craving public, Six Pack #49 will be up by the morning...

Short story: it's about an effeminate Egyptian pharaoh's-brother with a superiority complex who wants to unleash the dead while Ben Stiller's there because his friends the exhibits from NYC were shipped to the Smithsonian because there was a budget crisis or something at the Museum of Natural History. And he gets hit on a lot by Amelia Earhardt. Or she makes him do stuff. And he falls in love with her image and blablabla. On the upside, I think it's one of Amy Adams's strongest roles.

What, Dave?!?!? You watched "Night at the Museum 2" and "Transformers 2" today when there was a Margaret O'Brien marathon on TCM? Including "Meet Me in St. Louis," the film in which cute little 7 year old Margaret derails a trolley car on purpose and almost kills dozens of people. Not to mention burying her dolls who die of fatal diseases. Oh, yeah, it also stars Judy Garland. I'm afraid I'm going to actually have to see you having sex with a man if you want me to continue to believe that you are a big 'mo. ;)

I will volunteer to be that man, Barry. J/k. Dave deserves much better.

Margaret O'Brien got to be on the receiving end of the scares in "Our Vines Have Tender Grapes," which was shown later. Her parents in that one were Little Caesar and Endora.

Not to mention battling a title that vaguely suggests a tourism commercial for wine country.

"You'll love our non-wrathful grapes."
