Shock and awe

I was pleasantly surprised by the Aviator last night. Leo actually gave a performance which enabled me to forget that he was Leonardo DiCaprio. I don't think he's done that since What's Eating Gilbert Grape. And Cate Blanchett's much-heralded performance as Katharine Hepburn deserves all the accolades it has gotten, though it took a while for her to settle into the role. The relationship between these two was really the strongest part of the film, which though good, could have used a little judicious editing.

In other pleasant surprises, 6'4 is just as tall as I thought it would be. Which I discovered when I went to the reception after the BC-Seton Hall game, and Kathrin Ress stood next to me. Damn, woman. Also, I told y'all that Shamika Jackson was going to be a force to be reckoned with: 15 points on 6-7 shooting, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 block, and 1 steal.
