Nerd Family?

Okay, so it's been a while since I've posted. But can you really expect anything more from a die-hard lurker? No. In fact, my output has been quite remarkable so far, so get over it.

We went to a lot of movies over the past few weeks. We've seen National Treasure (B+), Oceans Twelve (C+), Meet the Fockers (B-), Finding Neverland (A), Closer (C+), The Aviator (A), Primer (A), and a few others.

All three of us went to see
Primer. Twice. This movie was made by a former engineer and self-taught filmmaker for about $7,000. It's an interesting puzzle film about a pair of engineers who build a time-travel machine in their garage. The story is naturally a bit convoluted, but well done. We had to see it a second time, though, just so we could figure out exactly what happened. And even after the second viewing, we had quite a discussion and didn't all agree on what happened. This movie was definitely a hit with our family. Of course, I have a degree in math, Ron's degree is in mechanical engineering, and Brigid plans to be an astrophysicist, so we may not be your typical family.
