...I could've imagined. The shark took me completely by surprise. I giggled uncontrollably. And the bomb disposal scene. How ridiculous! I did learn a number of things from this movie. Here's the top three:
1. I now know what "extraordinarily campy" truly means.
2. Labels are scary.
3. Superhero costumes simply are not flattering.
Because I have to miss movie night next week, we watched The Bourne Ultimatum last night. I became interested in seeing the movie after hearing Michael Geist refer to it in his chilling talk on privacy issues. In light of his remarks, the movie is disturbing.
Maclean's recently sent me a free issue and a subscription offer. I was a long-time subscriber until the internet took over. Now I get all the news online. I stopped watching news on TV. I stopped listening to news on the radio. The magazine was the last to go. I canceled my subscription to Maclean's a few years back largely because I disliked the change in format and was disappointed with the content. It lacked the kind of substance that had drawn me to the magazine in the first place. In this issue the editor talks about the revamped Maclean's and, indeed, it has been revamped. I immediately sat down and read "Adding Fuel to the Doctor Crisis," which raised fresh and troubling questions that left me thinking, exactly what I expect from a good article. I went on to read a number of articles and I must say I'm impressed. And the offer came at the right time. Like always, the times are changing. I spend long hours at the computer. I get tired of looking at the screen, tired of the mouse. I know I'm not alone. This online fatigue and the magazine's smart and timely revamping make the 82 per cent increase in newsstand sales of Maclean's seem reasonable. This magazine is the perfect getaway. A perfect magazine to read while working out on the bike. I will definitely subscribe.
