Bleh. Review writing slump

I'm now behind by five reviews. I need to get some of them done this weekend, because next weekend I'll have an exhausting day of grading spelling tests. But all I want to do is watch TV (whine whine).

 

I watched the Odd Thomas movie last night. I didn't even know there was one until I spotted it at my local Walmart a short while ago. I considered buying it, but then it popped up on Netflix. Now that I've seen it, I'm glad I didn't buy it. It was okay, but a bit cheesy. It was at its best when Odd and Stormy were not on screen together. Odd's dialogue wasn't always entirely believable, but Stormy's was generally awful. Plus, I recall her having an actual backstory in the book. In the movie, she was just Odd's hot soulmate, period.

 

And now I am watching Revolutionary Girl Utena for the very first time. Anthy disturbs me a little.
