The weekend is coming to a close. We rented Over the Hedge and An Inconvenient Truth. Well, rented it the wrong word. I used my Coke cap points to get 2 rentals, 2 20oz diet cokes and a tub of popcorn for free. Hedge was amusing at times, but it wasn't really that great. It did poke a bit of fun at the suburban lifestyle and really rubbed in my hatred of covenant communities.

Truth on the other hand, I recommend. Rent it, watch it. I don't think this movie will do much in the way of home sales, but it is a movie everyone should watch. Check out their extra information at www.climatecrisis.org please. Please help us save the planet. Check out www.stopglobalwarming.org as well.

What do we do to fight global warming? We set our thermostat to 67. We drive hybrids. We buy solar and wind energy(contact NStar to switch). We've added insulation to the attic and sealed our windows and doors. Could we do more, sure. Will we? I hope so. I'd like to have enough land to have a full solar array. I'd also love to put up a small wind turbine.

More movie recommendations - Superman sucked ass, it was actually boring, even with the cute guy who played Superman, and Pirates of the Caribbean was actually funny. John Tucker Must Die was decent too.

Maybe I'm a bit too emotional, but I liked Superman Returns, having just rented it a couple days ago. I didn't think he was that cute, though he did make a good Clark Kent.

Pirates look pretty crappy in the ads(of course, the first one did too). I guess I'll see, as soon as the stupid thing is in stock for me to rent.

Tucker? Never heard of it.

I'd still go with An Inconvenient Truth.

I liked the beginning and the end of Superman. I got excited when Manila was mentioned. I just felt like Lex wasn't enough, I think it would've been cool if Brainiac or someone formidable villian to fight him. Also, didn't like the way Supes was portraying the intensity between stopping the plane and lifting the island. I'm just picky I guess, I still like Spiderman and X-Men better.

Try renting from Stop and Shop. They have $1 day rentals. It's called RedBox. You can even check online if it's available.


They only carry new releases. I went to Blockbuster last Sunday and realized why I don't go there anymore - one movie was $4.

I only get free movies from Blockbuster.
