Despite some crappy weather on Sunday, it was a pretty good weekend this time around. On Saturday the girlfriend and I checked out a new local restaurant for dinner and caught a movie afterward. On Sunday the weather was a mess. It was one of those days that you just want to stay indoors… and that’s exactly what we did. We watched a few movies while working on small projects around the house and made a big tasty pot of chili while outside it alternated between sleet, snow, and high winds all day long. If we had a fireplace, it would’ve been a perfect day for that. Still, we enjoyed every minute.
As many of you already know, I really enjoy movies and try to see as many as I can. The film I saw on Saturday night was American Sniper. It stars Bradley Cooper and was directed by Clint Eastwood. It’s the true story of Chris Kyle, a Navy SEAL who becomes one of the most skilled snipers in U.S. military history. It covers his four tours of duty and how he dealt with the high levels of stress and the unavoidable toll it took on his personal life. I’m not usually interested in military films nor was I totally behind the Iraq war, but this movie offers a different perspective, one seen through Kyle’s eyes. It’s a meaningful film and I recommend it highly.
