Back when I used to make it a priority to stay informed, I read my news. But I spend a lot of time reading kinda boring stuff for work, so I've cut the news reading out. Since I'm not going to watch real news and I'm not going to read it, I've started watching Jon Stewart again. There is a good argument for the fact that Jon Stewart is closer to real news than real news, an argument I've made, but I won't make that argument now. Because I want to talk about this movie, which I found out about today by watching The Daily Show. And before you scoff that I've failed to become more informed and my plan to watch a comedian to get my news is ill-formed, I will note that I also learned that some guy from some political party is trying to sue Obama. So there's that, and this movie.
We're leaving for Omaha tomorrow afternoon to visit Tim's family and we're really hoping to rope someone into watching our adorable, cooing, smiling child so we can watch this slightly less high-brow movie that we've heard from a couple of sources is the best Marvel movie ever made. Any takers?
