Nerd Wedding

Hello everyone. I think we can get a little personal now since I am writing this post about getting married.

Kick-Ass , waiting to be watched. Wolverine , yeah. I still haven't seen it. Even the movies that usually deliver the well-adapted goods have disappointed, such as the most recent Harry Potter film. (Any fan of the book who claims to have enjoyed The Half-Blood Prince movie is certifiably insane - it was awful.) Enough about those movies that I have been too lazy or uninterested to
