Watched Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus. Was disappointed. Yes, the acting was appalling and the story incredulous and the dialogue atrocious, but there was simply FAR too little attention paid to the mega shark and the giant octopus, and really, even with the commercials fast-forwarded through, it was too long for the wonderful payoff shots: Mega Shark snatching a 747 out of the air; Mega Shark biting through a destroyer; Mega Shark taking a bite out of the Golden Gate Bridge; Giant Octopus swatting fighter jet out of the air. Definitely needed more disaster and monsters, less stupid romance between Pretty Bad-Actress-but-Great-Cheekbones Female Lead and Geeky Gee-Don't-I-Sound-Like-Mr.-Sulu Male Lead. I did enjoy the Irish scientist often forgetting he was supposed to be Irish. He made Boreanez sound like a native of the Auld Sod.

Rainy days are good ones for getting some housework done, but having finally steam cleaned my floor I then tracked mud all over it...
