I'm So Bored!
Went to the Egyptian Theater on Hollywood Boulevard tonight for a screening of a 2004 movie out of Mexico called "Duck Season."
It's about two 14 year old boys home alone on a Sunday. They are content to play video games all day until -- zap -- the power goes out. And they find there's nothing interesting to do without electricity. Even a visit from a flirtatious neighbor girl and a depressed pizza delivery guy leave them bored.
Unfortunately, Director Fernando Eimbcke's effort to portray the boy's boredom makes for a pretty boring film itself. Yawn.
On the way to the Egyptian I passed by the Kodak Theater. I see they've already added Sunday night's winner to their display of Best Picture Oscar winners. That was fast! I guess they're not waiting for a recount.
