Received an email from my sister. The weekend clean/purge of my parents house went slower then expected. They have already filled an 18 cubic yard container and have only completed the living room, stairs, and front foyer/hallway. A fresh dumpster is arriving on Monday and the task will continue.

I spent the weekend watching movies:

RocknRolla - The latest Guy Ritchie flick. Like all his movies it revolves around British gangsters, strange coincidences, and unexpected plot twists. I enjoyed this just as much as anything of his I have seen previously and the ending appears to set everything up for a nice sequel.

Taken - Liam Neeson stars as a retired CIA agent whos daughter is kidnapped and sold into sex slavery by Albanian mobsters while backpacking around Europe. He uses all the skills in his vast arsenal to hunt down and destroy the entire gang and exact sweet revenge. Pretty good film.

Appaloosa - This is a Western starring Ed Harris and Viggo Mortensen, two hired guns who show up in the frontier town of Appaloosa to bring justice to an evil rancher, played by Jeremy Irons. As far as post-Unforgiven Westerns go it was no 3:10 To Yuma but not nearly as boring as The Assassination of Jesse James.
