Finally Saw a Couple Movies

Into the Sun
A typical Steven Seagal vehicle. There were some things to like even though the plot wasn't one of them. Beautiful gardens, furniture, interesting Japanese actors. And when Seagal opens that can of whup-ass, it's always fun to watch him in action. I probably wouldn't watch it again, but it helped pass the time.

I Heart Huckabees
A movie that begs to answer the question, "How am I not myself?" Billed as an existential comedy, it stars Lily Tomlin, Dustin Hoffman, Jason Schwartzman, Jude Law, Mark Wahlberg and Naomi Watts. (Gene spotted a young Jake Hoffman as a parking valet.) Existential detectives, absurdist humor, meaningful or meaningless, you'd have to agree it was a well done movie whether you like it or not.
