I'm not normally a wine person, but lately I've been craving Cabernet Sauvignon, and I had some last night. Mostly, wine doesn't work for me, but when it does, it really does. The whole night gets transformed. I usually think back to a night where I drank wine and watched Sleeping Beauty. Maybe it's the "Skumps" song, but something about the whole visual style of the film compliments wine. I don't think I'll ever understand the appeal of white wine, though.
I see AICN is reporting that Marvel's offered the role of Captain America to Chris Evans, who played The Human Torch in the lousy Fantastic Four movies. I've never read Captain America, but I have to say I'm a little confused by AICN writer Beaks' enthusiasm over the news. Apparently Evans is appearing in an upcoming Edgar Wright movie, so maybe there's something more to him than I discerned from the Rifftrax accompanied viewing of Rise of the Silver Surfer. The guy just seems like a common asshole. Not even an interesting asshole, just kind of a standard young asshole. Maybe this Beaks guy is being sarcastic, though I see Devin Faraci at CHUD is excited about him, too.
Speaking of Rifftrax, I was excited to see to-day the release of the Rifftrax of New Moon. I hope I have time to watch it within the next couple days.
