So I’ve had a headache for about two days so far, and nothing I can do will make it go away. I think it’s sinus related, and I’ll be getting some Sudafed Sinus soon, which hopefully will make it disappear. I’m always a bit leery of sinus medication, though, since it has a tendency to make my body go pretty loopy. When the choice is between headachy and loopy, I usually opt for achy until I can’t stand it anymore.
In honor of the new Star Trek coming out, I thought I’d give you all a recommendation for the hardest sci-fi movie I’ve seen in an extremely long time. A sci-fi movie so deep that people have said “anyone who says they understand everything that’s happening the first time they see it is lying.” And I don’t doubt that statement. What makes it even cooler is that it was made by a first timer for a budget of a whole $7000. And this one can stand toe to toe with Hollywood movies. I loved it. It’s called Primer, and I’m going to give it four stars. I thought a long time about that four star rating, but for what this movie is and what it wants to be . . . I just can’t see a better way for it to do it. So it’s a very different four star movie than the kind I typically go for, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I don’t want to give too much away, but I will say the basics: it’s a time travel movie that reminded me of Groundhog Day in some aspects–only without the humor, the romance, or the ability to easily understand what’s going on. Oh–and without the repeating days. So I guess it’s not much like Groundhog Day at all. Oh well. Watch it and tell me what you think.
Just don’t expect to understand what’s happening. 🙂
And now, back to my headache.
