Carrie on Wayward Son

Watched Memento last night with Neil. Strangely enough, he'd never seen it before. Of course, I was somewhat envious of him as this meant he got to experience a fantastic movie for the first time, and that's something you can rarely (if ever) do twice.

Then I just got through the watching my two favorite action scenes in Matrix Reloaded; the balcony weapons fight, and the highway chase scenes. For a movie that I find so many faults with, it does have about 15 minutes of the best action that I've ever seen straight through in a movie.

I think it's pretty rare for a movie to have that level of intensity and to carry it that long so successfully. The few other times I have seen that have also been in martial arts movies like the Legend of Drunken Master (1 and 2 {amazing end fight scene}), and Fist of Legend. But these are usually because any plot is just filler in between the fights ;-)

Now I have to deal with a dilemma; go to work, or go to bed. Both are about as equally appealing and equally rewarding.
