Burlington and The Transporter

Second day of classes went well. I have Topics in Global History: Nation Building, and then Glacial Geology, both of which are pretty interesting thus far. Also dropped about 200 for 6 of my books, still needing to purchase my math and a history one.
Went over to Burlington today to visit some friends. Stopped by and visited Sarah for a couple hours, chatted about a great number of things, then went down and hung out with a group of friends from Camp who are still in the area. That was a lot of fun, hanging out with them, at wing night, a very popular venue for most Abnaki Staff. It was good to talk with them too, out of camp.
Picked up a couple of things from Borders and Barnes & Nobel. First, I bought the Transporter, a pretty cool movie, which I'll talk about in a second. Second, the Serenity novelization just came out, which I have yet to read, but will very shortly.
The Transporter follows a man, former Military, who makes a living driving things around, no questions asked. So when a girl ends up in his trunk, he doesn't really ask why, until the person he delivers it to tries to blow him up. From there, it's mainly him getting to the bottom of the problem, involving a slave ring and the girl. It's a pretty streight forwards plot, but it's quite a bit of fun to watch. It's a fun action movie. It's fast moving, action packed film. Storyline, there were a couple of twists in the middle which made it watchable, which make it somewhat interesting. Actionwise, there's quite a few good camera angles and shots during the filming as well. I'm also a fan of the main actor, Jason Statham, from the Italian Job, in which he also played a wheelman. Seems to be his popular role. I believe that he was also in Collateral, briefly. I can also see where he's been compared to Vin Disel, for they look and sound somewhat similar, as well as play similar roles. It'd be interesting to see them work together sometime, although I think that Jason is a much better actor.

The main problems are that the action gets ahead of itself at times, going over the top and unbelievable at times, which is a little bit of a disapointment. It's interesting enough that I'll go out and see the second one when it's released this friday.
