Trochees and Dactyls

We celebrated Talk Like a Trochee Day by going to see Trochees and Dactyls1,2,3 James Bond and Indiana Jones Cowboys and Aliens at the discount theater.

Also apparently we’re going to be seeing Olivia Wilde in a lot of SFF Movies because apparently (for real spoilers for Cowboys and Aliens and Tron): casting directors look at her face and say “Your like on Earth I ne’er did see”4.

What, the movie? Oh, it was entertaining. Had some quite good moments. Ultimately nothing that special.
