Superbowl commercials are attractions in and of themselves, usually better and more creative and entertaining than run-of-the-mill commercials. Does that mean advertisers don't bring their A game the rest of the year? They just try harder for the Superbowl? It doesn't add up. It smells of bunk.
Regardless, I didn't watch. X-Men 2 was on Fox. I still cry when they off Famke Janssen, even though I know she comes back in III. I'm sorry, you just don't do that to Famke.
Scratched DVD's are the bane of my existence. Watching a good flick, engrossed, completely unaware of the outside world, and halfway through the fucker dies on you. I was watching The Devil's Rejects which, while not award-worthy, was entertaining the shit out of me. Gore and boobies. What's not to like.
So it skips and will not play, so I star-wipe from a slasher flick to a PBS special about the history of the supreme court. Also entertaining, but a rough transition.
Saw III came in the mail today and if it skips I'm putting it in the microwave. I'm not kidding.
