Movie Monday - 8/15/2011

Knitting some, not finishing much...Not watching movies...What is wrong with the Merry Karma?

It's been really oppressive around here.  We almost set a new record last week for consecutive 100-degree days, but we didn't even tie.  A front was trying to reach us on Thursday but didn't make it.  Still, the temperatures dropped well below 100.  Then, early Saturday rained - 1.6 inches where we live.  It was a welcomed event, for sure.  I was kind of bummed about not breaking the record, after living through almost that many days...but...just...not...quite.  I got over it though.

My roses may not, even with the rain:

So, I did see one movie...

Gattaca, a science fiction thriller set in a world where people of means can choose the genetic make-up of their offspring, and whether one is allowed to realize their dreams and aspirations is dependent on that genetic make-up.  The underlying theme is that discrimination is wrong, no matter what the methods.  Ethan Hawke plays a person with inferior DNA who buys some favorable DNA from a paralyzed man played by Jude Law.  Uma Thurman, who has quality DNA, plays the love interest.  It was really good.

MK out.
