Update of the Day: Saw Terminator: Salvation last night. Enh, it’s “OK.” It’s not the piece of steaming crap Harry Knowles made it out to be, but it’s not really Good either. The characters overall are kind of flat, just there for the most part. The score was very lacking . . . nothing in the entire film had the impact of only brief usages of Brad Fiedel’s themes from the first two Terminator films. The action and effects were pretty good, but they mostly lacked the kind of epic feel that I was sort of expecting. You got that feeling a bit when viewing a couple of vista-like images of Skynet controlled San Francisco, but beyond that, meh. Several of the humans were also just Plain Stupid. If they do continue this post-Judgement Day series on with another film or two, I hope for a lot more from the next one. If this is a mediocre set up for some truly awesome, epic class stuff, then it can be passable as such.
Had a weird conversation with J last night. Initiated by her, I wasn’t really feeling like talking to her much. I think she’s kind of crazy, or else she’s having a grand time enjoying this bizarre drama she’s creating for herself. Whatever.
Have a date tomorrow with K. Very much looking forward to it. Trying to come up with something interesting to vary a fairly standard date.
