Where the hell did everybody go?
This town is a ghost town. There's nobody walking the streets of the Mission, nobody in the bars, nobody anywhere. Even the crowd at the Marina Green wasn't that much of a crowd. Sure, the fireworks were elsewhere, but the Marina Green is a pretty nice place to be to be watching fireworks. Hell, I even went to the movies yesterday- one of those super-huge, overly theatered places that's always way too crowded- and it was empty (and no, I didn't see "Swimming Pool" nor "Suriyathai" but "Charlie's Angels II" and you know you want to see it too). Where the hell is everyone and why didn't anybody tell me where they were going?
PS- As "Charlie's Angels II" was pretty much the only movie I was looking forward to this summer (yeah, even more than the Matrix and as for T3- bleah), the question, of course, is how is it. You know how some band comes out of nowhere and releases a really fun, accidentally great album that everybody loves? And then they go into the studio and try to both recreate the magic of the first album but expand upon it a bit more by just doing more of what it was that was magic on the first album? The movie was like that. It's still kind of fun and many of the Matrix-y type stunts out Matrix Matrix:Reloaded, but it's just not that much fun. The first one, which I do love for all of it's trashy glory, felt kind of like a glorious accident. The second one like it was too busy trying to recreate being a glorious accident, but trying to hard to be a glorious accident to really be one.
Oh well. Still worth the $7.50 for a bargain matinee.
