Enough with the singing, already!

I watched the first half of Chicago last night. I won't be bothering with the second half. I know I'm going to sound ignorant here, but there was just too much singing. Musicals usually aren't my thing (with Singin' in the Rain and a few Disney movies being the acceptions), so I shouldn't be surprised that I didn't like it, but I wanted to give it a chance, at least. The song and dance productions were quite impressive if you like that sort of thing, but I couldn't get into them. Instead, I kept wanting the movie to hurry up. It felt like the whole story could have been told in 30 minutes.

In much more exciting movie news, The Two Towers is out on DVD today. I ordered my copy last week, but I used Amazon's super-saver shipping deal, so it'll probably be another week before it arrives. I can wait, though.

In the meantime, we're going to be bombarded with entertainment choices tonight, as we finally get cable installed today! Along with the 600,000 or so channels we're getting is HBO, so I'll be able to keep up with The Sopranos and Six Feet Under. Best of all, we're getting cable Internet access hooked up as well. Finally I'll be able to surf, blog, chat, and all that other nonsense without waiting 5 minutes for each page to download.
