Minority Report Report

I’m going apartment hunting with Ryan today, and I’m not sure how much time will be left over for creative activity. Perhaps tonight I can rehearse “Johnny B. Goode” and “Symphony of Destruction” for my band tryout Tuesday night.

(later)

The apartment hunting was basically a success, and Kim and I went to see Minority Report after dinner. Good movie, though there were a couple of action movie scenes that kind of cheapened it for me. During the chase scene through the car factory in particular, I was bothered by the fact that there were no safety features in place to shut down the production line when foreign objects (namely Anderton’s body parts) were in the way of the automated lasers and stampers. After all, this is 2054, and I’m sure OSHA is still around.

However, parts of the movie were particularly enjoyable and well written. I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone, so I won’t say anything beyond this: The last fourth of the movie was the part that I enjoyed the most, and just when I thought I knew what was happening, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that it ran much deeper than I knew.
