Movie reviews

"Last Legion", ***, This was an interesting approach to the fall of the Roman Empire. Don't break a leg trying to go see it, but at least go during the matinee prices. Ben Kingsley is very good in it, and Thomas Sangster is very good as the 12 year old Romulus Augustus. Rated PG-13 for sequences of intense action violence, but no sex or even thoughts of sex.

"The Invasion", ***, Always easy on the eyes Nicole Kidman plays a psychiatrist who is part of the world population being attacked by a deadly virus from outer space. It was actually brought to earth by the crash of the space shuttle, stringing this deadly virus all over Gods' green earth. The key to survival was being able to stay awake until a vaccine was developed. Interesting concept, rated Pg-13 for violence, disturbing images and terror.

"Rush Hour 3", *, Absolutely one of the worst movies I have seen in a while. Did give it one star since the popcorn was fresh and I could finally eat it, since my bad tooth problems. Who told Chris Tucker he was funny and it is about time for Jackie Chan to understand you can't do those body slam tricks anymore and look real. Again they are fighting a world crime cartel and do a very bad job of it. The story is stupid, the acting is even worse and the chop chop karate scenes are terrible. Rated PG-13 for sequences of action violence, sexual content(it wasn't worth the wasted time), nudity and language. Wish I had my money back, but did get in on a senior discount.

The promised writing on the positives and negatives of being an athlete will get there this weekend. Still having trouble writing with the old hands, and wrists. Will do triathlon number 298 this weekend in New Mexico, so must rest for the swim.

For today,
