Boy, the Regal 17 in Auburn is an awesome theater… huge screens, lots of parking, impressive entrance. It surprised me since I’d always thought of Auburn as rather podunk relative to Federal Way. After all, they have less than half the population Fed Way does (40K to our 83K). I got lost on the way home from the movie and ended up in Milton. What a depressing dogpatch that place is… it made me think of the little town in Texas Chainsaw Massacre 4, but with more trees.

Anyway, The Illusionist (what I saw in Auburn) was a thoroughly average movie IMO. I don’t have any complaints, and I don’t regret going, but in the end I found it difficult to muster any real enthusiasm for the film. Giamatti (as Inspector Uhl) and Sewell (as Prince Leopold) played their parts very aptly. On a scale of 1 to 10, I think I’d give this, like, a 5.2.

Okay, here’s a big image dump. Some of these are really cool. Mouse-over for a tool-tip description.

    I believe it is! And I think the guy behind Snake and Moleman is Professor Farnsworth.
