over christmas, the lady sparkler and i went to our first movie together in the last 15 months.

and by “together” i mean that she decided to stay home and sleep, and i went to see “true grit” with my father and brother instead.

and by “went to see” i mean that my brother is a fancy pants movie reviewer (examiner.com, twitter, radio show) and so i tagged along when he and my father decided to go.

i’ll stay quiet on my own thoughts because my brother’s review is better, and heck friend/slash/literary illuminati robert lalasz’s review is better, too.

but, i overall i’d give the movie three kumquats and a banana — it was better than Cats!
