I must say right off the bat that I forgot that Summer League is 2 man teams and 4 games. About frame 4 of the 4th game my arm was dead from not throwing any games in about a month. Then I XXX'd in the middle of the 4th game and caught a second wind.
Well the debut of the new bowling shoes went well. I XXX'd to start the first game. I left a few 2-10 splits when I found out how oily the lanes were and threw outside the 5 board I knew I was pretty much screwed. I bounced back though and overall I am satisfied with my night. Going in with the already established average of 202 from Winter league. I know I surpassed that by a few pins as my average would have given me a 808 series. Nothing else really to discuss here, I'll continue to break in the new shoes and hopefully have a solid summer season. There are a lot more good bowlers here on summer league than winter so I don't think I'll be battling for top averages.
So many people wanted to screen this movie and not for the reason that I wanted to. Obviously the only reason I watched this movie was because it starred Katie Holmes.
Thank You for Smoking is a comedy about a guy named Nick Naylor who is a spokesperson for the Tobacco company and knows how to dominate when it comes to verbal debating the good side of cigarettes. There's some mildly funny stuff in this movie. This movie was ok for the first 20 minutes until I find out that Katie Holmes plays a reporter/whore who will do anything for a good story. Which made me like this movie a lot less. But hey, that's me. I wrote down a couple classic quotes from the movie:
"If your going to drink and drive, make sure you suck on some charcoal."
"The rest of you people slam your fucking heads against the desk and give me something useful!"
That's pretty much all I got on this one.
Thumbs mildly down for me only because of Katie Holmes' Character.
Concidering there are 9 kills in the first 10 minutes I decided to do a kill count that ended at nineteen.
Lucky Number Eleven, er... Sleven stars Josh Hartnett, Lucy Liu, Bruce Willis, and Morgan Freeman. Let me tell you, this movie is hard to follow and I found myself confused but still interested trying to figure out what the hell was going on. Many twists in this movie as I think of how to tell you about it without giving anything away. Hmmm..... Well let's just say this movie has Assassins, Gambling, and a feud between Morgan Freeman and this other guy who haven't left their establishments in 20 years due to the fact they think they will be shot and killed. I enjoyed it for the most part but I do think they could have ended it differently, but that's my opinion and if they did that then the "target audience" would probably go home a bit unhappy.
