apoc.jpgMy movie watching has gone down somewhat due to a 3 week intensive workout regimen leading up to the Philly half marathon. Last night I did manage to watch Mel Gibson’s Apocalypto or as I like to call it… how Mel Gibson wishes he was born.

The movie is almost so good. It starts off well, but if you are going to have a 139 minute movie… maybe cut some of the slower breathing shots. And why do all the violent deaths have the arrow come out of someone’s mouth or the snake bite dude right in the jugular. It just reminded me of the South Park episode where Mel Gibson keeps trying to get the kids to torture him.
