Kelly has the day off tomorrow and I'm itching to take her to a movie. Which should we see, The Curse or Black Hawk Down? (The other movies in town are not feasible: I already saw Vanilla Sky and A Beautiful Mind and I don't want to see them again, and Orange County has Jack Black in it.)

Never heard of The Curse but I did see Black Hawk Down and it was spectacular. It had a lot of classic "war moments" which are so common place now, but worth it. At least it didn't use that camera trick where the picture gets all grainy and shaky (Saving Private Ryan, Band Of Brothers, etc.)
