I helped my wife with a bit of shopping, yesterday. It was nice to get out with her.

Then, we both collapsed into a nap.

Following which we went to the movies and took in Red 2, which was fun. Nothing earth-shattering, just fun.

Followed that with a late dinner at a dumpling place we'd never seen before with the help of Yelp, and it was very good.

And then we streamed season two of Prime Suspect, which after Red 2 was almost like having a Helen Mirren festival. Very nice.

I think I shall laze about today...

I recently read the RED mini-series by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner, and I was surprised at how stripped-down, almost minimalist, it was, given the apparent bloat of the movie adaptation.

RED wasn't my favorite thing by Ellis, but it was decent enough; I probably won't have much patience with the movie. (For one thing, I'm deeply ambivalent about John Malkovich.)

Red compares to Red the way that The Three Musketeers by Dumas compares to The Three Musketeers by Disney; the one gives the general idea, the movies run away with the thoughts.
