We watched the Watchmen

My wife and I had some time to ourselves the other day so we figured we would catch Slumdog Millionaire at the Alamo Drafthouse.

It was a great plan, except everyone else had the same idea. It was sold out almost an hour before showtime. Oh well. How about Gran Torino? Sold out. There was only one alternative.


I thought it was great. I loved the intro credits, the fighting, the gore, and the story. My wife thought it was good, but long. Favorite character? Rorschach (no surprise) hands down.

Why Alamo Drafthouse? Fried pickles - they really know how to make them there. I also tried the Drafthouse Amber beer. Pretty good! I can't remember what the entree was called, but we shared the fish and chips special, and it was fantastic.
