For some reason this week has kicked my ass. I’ve gotten both writing and editing done, but I still feel like I haven’t made any progress! I’m going to blame Monday’s holiday for throwing me off. For a short week, I am *very* glad today is Friday!
It’s supposed to be rainy and humid here all weekend, so my goal is to get through another 100pgs of revisions. (I may be overly ambitious here, but hey, reach for the stars, right?)
But between pages, I’m pretty sure I’ll be needing a break. I’ve been eyeing a movie since I heard about it last year – Splice. I’m still not sure if I actually want to see it in the theaters. I’m a chicken and tend to scream at the stupidest things. But it’s a really interesting concept and has a creepy/cool main character, so I’m tempted. Plus Sarah Polley is in it, and I’ve always been a huge fan. I just need to figure out if I can get over the ick factor – those trailers just look wrong!
Here’s a summary:
Celebrated genetic engineers Clive (Adrien Brody) and Elsa (Sarah Polley) conduct a clandestine experiment to create an animal/human hybrid that could revolutionize modern medicine — if it doesn’t destroy humanity first. On the heels of engineering an entirely new species of animal, Clive and Elsa become the toast of the scientific community. Their experiment begins to spiral out of control, however, when the superstar scientists introduce human DNA into the equation. When Dren is born, Clive and Elsa welcome her into the world as the next leap in human evolution. Now, the faster Dren evolves, the more her creators start to realize they may have made a catastrophic mistake. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
So what plans do you guys have for the weekend? Any movies you’re dying to see?
