The Musketeer, Nuked
I went out with some friends to see The Musketeer tonight. But first, Ryan and I went to Sam's Club because he needed an ink cartridge. I saw a cool microwave while I was there so I got it. Yes, I've lived in my apartment alone for over a year with no microwave. People seem to think that's unreal, but frankly, it's not that big of a deal to live without! It was done all the time up until about 15 years ago. So anyway, I bought a microwave. Then it was time for the movie. I thought it wasn't too bad, but it wasn't that great either. Sure, it had wonderfully choreographed fight scenes, but the plot was too hard to follow. Who sent for whom, who favored whom, conspiring to kill whom behind whose back? I couldn't keep track. Not that it mattered. The movie was all about the costumes and fights. And if you judge it for what it is, I think it did very well. But one of my friends left the theater saying that the movie SUCKED! Horrible, she's embarrassed, waste of money, etc... I didn't think it was THAT bad. If you haven't seen it, I say it's worth seeing, but only in a dollar theater. :)

Usually any of the musketeer movies have very strange plots that are hard to follow unless you pay strict attention - I'm not good with history and I think I rebel by not following movies easily. However, I have learned to thoroughly enjoy the scenes for the excitement they can offer in the moment. I haven't tried that movie, yet, but I might. I will always remember as a kid enjoying "The Three Musketeers" (no, no the one with Charlie Sheen, etc.) Then they came out with "The Four Musketeers" and I hated the ending so I've been scarred for life, fearing that I won't enjoy any other Musketeer movies.
