Entertainment review

We saw Munich last night. That was a huge disappointment. In fact, I didn't even bother watching the last five minutes because it was such a pointless movie. The story could've been compelling - the real life events certainly lend themselves to such - but it wasn't. Instead, it was like 5 hours (seemingly) of waiting for each person to be assassinated. The thread that held the "story" together wasn't even thick enough to floss with. It made me ask, when was the last time that Spielberg told a good story instead of just putting out a big movie? If anyone liked this movie, please enlighten me. One note: Daniel Craig was in it (Grrr, baby) but he was not looking quite so sexy in his 70's duds.
Currently, I'm watching Iron Chef - with a battle between Giada De Laurentis and Rachel Ray. Iron Chef America is not as entertaining as the original Iron Chef, but it's amazing to see what they can do with cranberries.
Final entertainment note: They are making a movie based on Philip Pullman's series "His Dark Materials." If you haven't read those books, I really recommend them! They are supposedly children's books, but they are kind of intense - even more so than Harry Potter. Anyway, I'm very excited about the movie.
