BAD MOVIES

On Saturday night, E7 and I were hanging out, watching movies (we haven't been doing anything on the weekends recently because we are off to the Czech Republic and Austria this Friday for Golden Week!!!)

We watched "White Squall" which was WONDERFUL. At 2AM, E7 turns to me and says that he's hungry and is going to make some ramen. That took some time so we ended up watching another movie, which was so unbelievably bad, I couldn't believe it. It was called "28 days later" (U.S., British, French collaborative film) and was about a virus that infected the UK and wiped out the entire population. It wouldn't have been so bad if it was just one of those Freddie/Jason movies, but it tried to put a sanctimonous spin on the story, comparing wiping out the population of the UK from the virus and the killing that goes on everyday in every country. Pretentious, unbelievably bad, and possibly one of the worst movies I've ever seen...so of course we watched the entire thing until 4AM. Isn't that pathetic???

One particularly "funny" part of the movie was the fact that the virus only wiped out the population of the UK, not the entire world because the UK was quarantined...no one in, no one out. So everyone except for 3 people died. A friend of mine from the UK said: "Yep...sounds like a French twist on the film."
