Forgot to mention here the awesome deal I got at Toys ‘R Us last week. In the ad last week they were offering a $25 gift card for buying Super Mario Galaxy. I figured I would get it anyway but was intending to wait, until I saw that. My wife had also clipped a coupon for a $10 gift card with a $75 purchase. After looking through most of the store for something to push us over the $75 mark so we could take advantage of both offers, we went to the video games section and I mentioned that I had intended to get Zack & Wiki before too long anyway. So we picked that up and when we got to the counter the guy told us Wii games were buy 2, get one free. Sweet! So I also got Metroid Prime 3: Corruption–they were out of Fire Emblem and Super Paper Mario.
Super Mario Galaxy is awesome so far.
Saw Beowulf Saturday night in 3D (not IMAX, though). I love it. The visuals, the action, and the story… all were worth the price of admission. Better than most of the junk you can see at a theater… but I don’t think it should be PG-13. It will almost be a disappointment when it comes out on DVD, I think, not to be able to watch it in 3D. Here is a pretty good review of the film (which I got the link to from Neil Gaiman’s blog).
