Pardon me for not blogging until now but I've been busy taking advantage of other people's misfortunes. In short, I've been to Linkoping's monthly pawn shop auction. I wish that Superblog!! could start to pay off soon so I could buy new stuff, but until then I'm fine with used DVDs. I'm also pleased by the fact that the junkies of Linkoping who stole them in the first place can get their drugs. Marcet economy. Everybody wins!
Some of the DVDs I bought today: The Godfather: part II and III, Donnie Brasco, The Patriot (with Steven Seagal).
Mr. Seagal must be seriously out of touch with his audience. People who go see his movies expect action, violence, stunts and martial-arts combat: what they get here instead are a lot of boring speeches and sequences teaching us that oriental/traditional remedies are better than western medicine, that biological warfare is a bad thing, that militia members are a bunch of overweight or underage weirdos in camouflage outfits, that native americans (especially their elder) are always wise and peaceful and so on.I thought "On Deadly Ground" and "The Glimmer Man" were bad, but compared to "The Patriot" they both look like serious contenders for an Oscar. There's more action in a Meg Ryan picture than in this film.
Well, I can live with that review. I got 18 DVDs for 300 kronor which is like $40 and whoever has the most DVDs when he dies wins.
