When it Rains...

That's right, it's an obvious cliche so I'll leave it to you to add the apodosis (just trying to balance out the cliche with some technical's like literary karma...even though I'm using apodosis incorrectly as it's really only applicable to conditional this is an incredibly long parenthetical statement...with far too many ellipses to be now you should be cottoning on to the fact that I don't believe in literary karma...suckers).

Anyways, just wanted to say that I saw a really great movie tonight. It's called Stranger Than Fiction and it stars Will Farrell, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Emma Thompson (who rules!) and Dustin Hoffman. This was a truly exceptional film, particularly the writing and direction (though the actors were no slouches). It's also one of those movies that just gets better the more you know about literature and literary theory, a kind of second level of code. I won't say any more here, don't want to spoil it for you. But if you're looking for a fascinating and powerful film, this is a good bet. But if you like Farrell's normal fare (e.g. The Ballad of Ricky Bobby) this might not be the show for you...less with the farting noises and sex jokes and more with the subtle humor and quirky writing.

Have a good night all. Blessings.
