Jason Bourne

We all, in a way, want to be like Jason Bourne, don’t we?  Heightened perception, resourceful, super smart, and the ability to defend ourselves as easily as Ryan Gosling attracts women.

Of course we’d want all that without the amnesia, putting forth the effort to train, and being constantly pursued by the government who only wants to see us dead.  The guy just wants to be left alone and have a normal life, for pete’s sake!

Whether or not we actually want to be like him, we like Jason Bourne for who he is, and enjoy watching the action-packed moments of his life as he discovers who he is.  And makes the government pay.

And of course, I’m absolutely looking forward to the release of the next Jason Bourne movie later this month!

 

Who’s your favourite main character?

Day 1: Best New Movie You Saw Last Year

 

The Martian

There’s no debating this choice.  Science, Mars, potatoes, and Matt Damon.

I’m not going to delve too deeply into this movie, because I’ve talked about it a bit in previous blogs (here and here).  I am, however, going to highly recommend it, again.

And conclude with a shameless plug for The Mars Generation 😇.

 

What’s the best new movie you saw last year?

Potatoes and Matt Damon

Today, I’m participating in a fundraiser event for The Mars Generation.  The participants in the event are basically “stranded on Mars,” and have to ration ten medium-sized potatoes and sixteen ounces of water for the twenty-four-hour period.  (The whole thing can totally be done during one’s daily routine, and you don’t have to follow it.)  The participation takes place on Twitter, where we Martians not only help spread the word to raise money, but can also earn more perks like ketchup, coffee, and more water.

Check out info on the event with the hashtag #PotatoChallenge on Twitter, and at the following webpages:

Now that that important passion is mentioned, onto the fandom stuff.

If you haven’t seen The Martian yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!  IT’S AWESOME!

I’ve seen the movie twice, and am currently reading the book.  Still “currently” because toward the end of the book I’m reading as little as possible — I don’t want it to end!

Though I don’t know any differently, I think Matt Damon was perfect for the part of movie Mark Watney.  To keep this post from getting too long, I’ll just let you figure it out for yourself.  Although, I’m sure that it also mostly has to do with my new fandom obsession with Matt Damon as an actor.  I watched The Monuments Men yesterday with Hubby.  It was a great movie with an all-star cast, including Matt Damon.

Right now, I’m sitting at Starbucks doing homework.  I’ve made some good progress on it, but now I want to take a break to watch a movie.  The Bourne Identity, to be specific.  The internet connection here isn’t having it.  Boo.  I’ve only seen the trilogy once, after seeing The Bourne Legacy several times, because of the fandom obsession both Hubby and I had over Jeremy Renner in 2012.  Actually, it was the exact same situation with the Mission Impossible series of movies, haha.  I only saw the trilogy once after a lot of Ghost Protocol views.

Anyway, I guess Jason Bourne will have to wait until I get back home.  Until then, I’ll make some more headway in astronomy class, eat potatoes, post to Twitter, and listen to the Christmas music playing in Starbucks.
