Seer of ghosts & weaver of stories

It's Weird Movies Week, apparently.
On Saturday evening, I saw Men Who Stare At Owls The Fourth Kind. It wasn't spectacular, but it didn't completely suck, either. In fact, I think it's curiously effective in making you second-guess your perception of the story even though you know that the "true" framework on which it claims to be based is equally as fabricated as the "dramatization."

Yesterday, on DVD: What the Bleep Do We Know? Dodgy Quantum Physics, annoying animation, and actually very good explanation of how the human brain works with respect to addictions and emotions. Also, it's not often that you see a deaf protagonist! Overall, this one's odd.

I really wanna see The Fourth Kind. I've never really been one for aliens all that much, but it looks intriguing. :O

It's decently tense, too, and a little bit disturbing. I wouldn't call it terrifying, though.

I worked in a movie theatre that aired What the Bleep Do We Know? and it's probably a testament to my limited grasp of Quantum Physics that, having seen it, I'm still completely in the dark about what exactly happened.

Maybe I should give it another try...

It's more New Age fluff than actual hard science, to be honest, but, as I said, the bits about brain function and the like, I found fascinating.
