Pretty low-key weekend; mainly just got over the flu. Though I was able to go hear Bill Clinton speak on Monday; that was pretty cool.

I also saw a boatload of movies. The 5 second reviews:

The Assassination of Jessie James By the Coward Robert Ford: Good acting, but long and slow
Jumper: Not a bad popcorn flick. Bad acting.
The Mist: Not bad, but didn't really break any new ground either. Good ending.
They Live: Great, subversive late 80s horror/sci fi movie.
A History of Violence: Not bad, interesting idea, though it felt a little too short
Red Dawn: The Ruskies invade the U.S. Charlie Sheen. Good stuff
The Right Stuff: Interesting stuff; the mercury program stuff is cool.
