Today I saw "S.W.A.T." Not a great movie by any means, but it met by expectations. Plenty of automatic weapons fire, and other cool action-movie stuff. The characters played their parts well. And Samuel L. Jackson is solid. I recommend this if you're not looking for something particularly cerebral.
If you're looking for downright crude, "American Wedding." Same as the previous two movies in the series, and just as funny. But there is one scene that may make you want to stay away from chocolate for a little while.
"Pirates of the Caribbean" had a good story, and a beautiful girl doesn't hurt. Maybe it appealed to me a little more because of the whole nautical theme, but this is a good movie regardless - enough comedy interspersed with the drama.
Everything here in SC is going well. I'm not having problems with school - yet. The weather may take a little while to acclimate to. You have to take the raincoat even if it's a clear day out, because 15 minutes of rain each day is guaranteed - you just don't know when it's going to come.
