So I've gotten a few comments asking where this blog will be going. The answer is: I don't know. I want to have a blog about whatever subjects I want to talk about.

NOTE: The closed-captioning for the trailer doesn't make sense for the most part, so not only is it a good trailer for a great movie, it has the added bonus that the captions are hilarious.
