I was a weekend media whore

Filed under: Uncategorized — Muli Ben-Yehuda @ 12:06 PM

I was a bit sick this weekend and spent a lot of time lying down. This propensity for horizontal entertainment, coupled with the great set of speakers ladpyine bought on Friday, meant I spent a large parts of the weened in front of the TV, surrounded by 6 speakers and experiencing favorite movies in a whole new way. Movies watched include:

The great Saving Private Ryan

The mediocre Terminator 3, although The Governator was hillarious.

The excellent We Were Soldiers, one of the better war movies I’ve ever seen

And the classic Platoon.

Suggestions for more good war movies will be appreciated, in case I end up sick next weekend as well…

  4. When you’re sick it’s really best to take time to catch up on really long movies you’d never normally have the patience to watch (The English Patient, Dr Zhivago, etc)and expand your knowledge of the “classics”. I had mono in high school and my dad made this decision for me, but I appreciate it now ๐Ÿ˜‰
