The One With The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (And Why It Kinda Sucked)

Various thoughts of unrelated randomness popped into mind as I watched the somewhat unglorified Disney latest flick that was The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.

#1 – That sorcerers are humans with the ability to use 90% of the brain instead of 10% like you and I could. That sorcery is part magic, part science. That’s kinda scary because by that definition, Albert Einstein is just a sorcerer and not a genius as we were told. Are we that gullible? What else has history been cheating us on?

#2 – For someone who wants to take over the world by creating an army of the dead, Morgana le Fay was surprisingly easy to kill. You would think they will at least have a showdown of epic proportion. The movie wouldn’t be totally out of place if sequenced as part of “Scary Movie (insert the number of next number here)”. Maybe the show was meant to be dorky instead of scary.

#3 – The hero of the movie, a somewhat reluctant Dave Stutler who rises from zero to hero was somewhat believable (apparently he always had geeky roles?), but the heroine was a total flake. I was known to laugh at the silliest thing but her punch lines invoked less than a giggle from me.

#4 – New York is beautiful, no doubt about it. Empire State Building, Chinatown, Battery Park… I am ashamed that my blog entries on my April trip is still incomplete.

#5 – It is okay to be a total nerd. In fact it is kinda cool. I have always known that, coz I am nerdy in my own way. Now I can start to think I am cool, too.

It troubled me somewhat that I have been spelling “sorcerer” as “soccerer” for years. Perhaps among the various ailments that I have, the inability to spell is one of them. I think that’s called… dyslesix? Dyslecis?

See, I told you.
