That is what Kev encourages me to chant mentally during times of extreme anxiety or panic. I think he got it from Miss Crabapple on the Simpsons. But today, I am not here to discuss my panic and anxiety, because it is time for a LRHS MOVIE REVIEW! (Cue the trumpets)
Today we went to the Angelika at Mockingbird Station to see Deep Blue. It is a documentary film about the ocean and ocean creatures. If you like PBS specials about the ocean, then you will really like this movie. The footage is great, spectacular at times, and the soundtrack goes well with the action. Even the smarmy Pierce Brosnan wasn't too annoying as the narrator, although I much preferred the work of the great Morgan Freeman in March of the Penguins. Speaking of penguins, you will see them in this film, as well as dolphins, whales, sea lions, hammerhead sharks, fish of all kinds, and lesser known deep ocean dwellers with blinking lights, and one that even shoots out a blue laser-beam type of thing that explodes into a burst of blue light seconds later to annoy or confuse its predators. Very cool. There are also some really funny crabs. I give the movie 4 out of 5 penguins on my new penguin rating system. I probably would have given it 4 1/2, but parts of the film made me feel a little claustrophobic. So please go enjoy Deep Blue with your friends and family today. WARNING: Some parts are sad.
PS. The popcorn was pretty good, but Kev and I both managed to spill root beer on ourselves, and the theater was FREEZING. For once it was good to walk outside.
