Sense and Sensibility

Last night I watched Sense and Sensibility and liked it. The only Jane Austen book I ever read is Northanger Abbey. I liked it, too. But I don't think I'll ever read her books again. I'm only going to watch her stories on video. I can save a lot of time this way, and the adaptations seem pretty reliable.

When I was watching Sense and Sensibility last night, I kept thinking, "Oh man, this is good." (I also thought, "I should 'tweet' something about this.")

I think the movie The Wedding Planner, with Jennifer Lopez, is also very good. Seriously, things that handle love issues with even a little bit of depth always seem good to me, and worthwhile.

There are only a few things worth writing about: love, death and Heidegger's thrown-ness. Anything that isn't oriented toward one of these three issues is bad and largely responsible for the high rate of illiteracy in the US.
