Cosmo pile o crap

Okay, so a number of bad decisions were made today:

- the inability to get more than 2 hours of sleep (I guess this wasn't much of a decision, unless you count my not going to bed sooner -- went to bed around 12:30ish, woke up around 2:20ish and couldn't fall back asleep, got up to go to the gym at 5am, followed by shooting the sunrise and then heading into the city for a conference)

- deciding to go to a movie after the conference

- deciding not to go to see Amazing Spiderman 3D at 8:15pm

- deciding to go see Cosmopolis at 7:20pm

This was one of the worst movies I've seen in a very long time.  I tried to stay awake, but in all honesty,  when I did, all I heard was a bunch of noisy chatter delivered in an utmost annoying fashion -- there was absolutely no connection to the characters nor could I find a reason to even want to.  I found Pattinson at times delivering lines like he was Christopher Walken.

If they were trying to send a message or say something profound, it went completely over my head, as I was probably asleep for about half of the film.  Even so, the dialogue I did hear sounded like meaningless dribble.

I did manage to stay awake during Paul Giamatti's scenes -- which were great simply because it's Paul Giamatti, and being an antagonist, there was at least some motivation behind his character.

If I was in the right mindset, I would have walked out the theater, as one couple did, and it would have been the first time I ever did.

Utter waste of time -- at least we used passes instead of paying a ghastly $28
