Two days I've been spending overnight works to oversee the installation of surveillance cameras in my branch. I feel like I've lost track of the date. Lack of sleep made me unproductive.
And so today after a lame attempt on getting a full sleep I drove the family off to the mall to cool off. It's a hot near-summer day. I said I will not stroll around so I've brought my sketch pad and some favorite pencils, find a cafe and try to finish the dragon that's long overdue for posting.
I was contemplating on seeing WATCHMEN. My wife was actually encouraging me to see it while she, the kids, my mom and aunt went malling. But after seeing the schedules and realizing the movie was too long to let my family to wait for me to finish, I said I'll just go with my first option and draw the fucking dragon.
So there I was, on an overly soft chair, a cup of caffe americano on my table, and an A4 sketch on my lap. I felt uncomfortable as people passed behind me. I moved to another spot, and looked at my watch. Five minutes and it's the next screening of Watchmen. To hell with the drawing and
the lack of sleep, I'm gonna see it.
Awesome, awesome movie. Not your regular superhero movie, that's what I thought. The story really mattered and as a person who has never read the graphic novel, I'd say it's one of the best superhero movie I've seen so far. It's got substance. It got me glued to every dialogue as I didn't want to miss out on each character's story.
My favorite character - Rorschach, not Mr. Manhattan (though his powers are so cool). Is it just me, or is Silk Spectre II really hot?
