Spy Kids and...

Tuesday, January 10, 2006
I watched Spy Kids tonight. Cute movie from the guy who did Sin City (well, did Spy Kids first...well El Mariachi first, you know what I'm saying). So, it's cute. Parents are kidnapped and the kids learn the parents are really super spies and save the day. Like I said, cute. Kind of fun. Pleasant. I enjoyed the movie, but I won't be rushing out to watch Spy Kids 2 or 3. I think I'm good for the rest of the series, thank you very much.

I've also read the first two chapters of Gene Wolfe's The Shadow of the Torturer, which is the first volume in his Book of the New Sun series which is said to be one of the greats of science fiction - fantasy. I'm sure I've heard a bit about the overall story before, but to be honest I can't remember, which is good because it means that I'm going into the story absolutely fresh. I can't even read the dust jacket because the book description is covered up with interlibrary loan stuff.

Meanwhile, I still suffer through The Age of Innocence. Pulizter. Classic. I know. But it's those damn rich people.

And Emma is a comedy of manners...but I don't really care of Jane Austen, either.
