Sunday Round UP - Nov. 9, 2008

Ah, good evening, all. Today I have a quick movie review for you, the horror film by Neil Marshall, The Descent. An incredibly intense film about six women who go spelunking in the appalachian mountains, in an unexplored cave off the map with no help coming for them. As things begin to go horribly awry I cringed with the growing sense of helplessness and doom. A terrific movie, and one of the main reasons was the development of the six women, and of the sense that there were tensions and friction within the group, just as would exist in any tight knit group of intense individualists. This development of them as three dimensional people made the ensuing terror more emotional.

Shout out to the Rutgers Scarlet Knights. As an alum I've been very frustrated by their performance this season, but with this win they move to 4-5 with a 3-2 in the Big east conference. If they run the table, a reasonably conceivable possibility, they would be 7-5 and could finish second in the Big East . That's a reasonable bowl bid, my friends.
