Last night I got myself a new, khaki trenchcoat, which I really prefer to black. It's nice and didn't cost me as much as I'd expected. Here's hoping I can still justify the expenditure after I'm a little more awake. That's pretty much my last personal purchase until Christmas shopping is finished, and I'm a man which means that it's going to take me awhile.
After I bought the coat, I went with ribsinbacon to see Walk the Line, the Johnny Cash biopic. Good film. I'm unqualified to address the accuracy of the characters or the history presented, but it's a good story and the filmmaking is solid. Great casting, especially Joaquin Phoenix, whom I've always thought I hated. I'm starting to figure out that he's a really good actor whose abilities I misjudged thanks to Gladiator (the problem was the movie, not Mr. Phoenix). The fact that he and Reese Witherspoon did their own singing and learned to play their instruments is a nice bonus. Come to think of it, I'm starting to like Reese Witherspoon, too. I always thought her only redeeming qualities were cuteness and the ability to memorize her lines, but in retrospect her career has been mired in lackluster saccharine roles... just like every other promising actress. If she has a good agent, she'll get better roles. If not, well, there are worse things than being the next Meg Ryan.
