FilmMattic. We bantered back and forth about the winners, the losers, the snubs and the surprises. It was tremendous fun and I can't thank Matt enough for the opportunity.
Since I watched the Oscars that meant I had to DVR The Walking Dead and watch after the main broadcast. OMG!!! Andrea needs to get her shit together and take a stand. Is she going with Team Prison or is she sticking with Team Woodbury? She can't have it both ways. There is no negotiation in the Apocalypse for crying out loud. And holy guacamole did Carol come up with that cold-hearted plan to bang then stab the Governor? Hell yes, it was. Ol' Carol is turning badass and it is about time. Daryl is a killer influence it seems.
And I love how Carl stood up to Rick and told him that he needed a break from being the leader. Carl is the man and I agree with him. Rick is going crazy, seeing the dead Lori, so yeah he needs to come off the Ricktatorship for a minute or ten. And besides poor Carl had to shoot his own mother. He's keeping it together so why can't his dad?
Then we have Tyrese and company. These poor people can't catch a break, caught between walkers and two crazy guys. Kicked off of Team Prison, they are now preparing to be second stringers on Team Woodbury. Should be interesting to see what happens.
I also love to watch Talking Dead, the round-up show on immediately after WD. I learn alot about the inner workings of the show. Last night I learned that when the zombies come, make sure you have maxie pads, dental floss and condoms. Apparently maxie pads make absorbent dressings for wounds as well as thick shoe inserts. Floss can be used as fishing line and condoms can hold two gallons of water. Who knew? Something to file in the back of your brains for future use, my writer friends.
I also saw a couple of really good movies this weekend. Cedar Rapids was a really intriguing comedy with Ed Helms, Sigourney Weaver, Anne Heche, John C. Reilly, Isaiah Whitlock, Jr. and Alia Shawkat. Tim Lippe is a naive insurance agent going to his first conference and is he ever in over his head. This was hilarious from start to finish. The other movie I watched was the creepy, but kind of dull The Fourth Kind. It's a mockumentary sci fi chiller about a psychologist who uncovers alien abductions in Nome, Alaska. Milla Jovovich, Elias Koteas and Will Patton star.
So how was your weekend? Watch any good movies? Watch the Oscars?
