We watched two movies tonight. The first was “War of the Worlds” with Tom Cruise. The movie was exactly what I expected it to be – but Spielberg is so skilled with tension and pacing, it kept me rivited throughout.
The second movie was really interesting. “Murderball” is a documentary about parapalegic rugby and the lives of the players on the American and Canadian teams. This is more than a warm fuzzy “people in wheelchairs are people too” movie. These guys are fascinating, and as you get to know more about the players and their life stories, you get so much more caught up in the rivalry between the teams which takes an interesting turn at the Olympics in Greece. Great film – I’m going to watch for these guys at the next Olympics.
