Why Did I Watch 'The Road'?
Just finished watching The Road. Movie of the book of the same name by Cormac McCarthy. Post apocalypse. Dreadfully depressing. But I knew that going in, because I already read the damn book. So why did I watch the damn movie? Spoiler alert: don't read the next sentence if you plan on seeing the movie and haven't already. Even if they tweaked it with just the teensiest bit of optimism in the movie version, totally fucking absent from the book, by having the kid find a living beetle just before his dad croaks.
