So, Boston has battled back and we have another game tomorrow night. That’s okay I guess though because I can watch a movie. I have this great old movie that I bought on e-bay that I haven’t seen in a long time. Cloak and Dagger. It’s from 1984. The kid in it is the kid from E.T. Cloak and Dagger is every kids dream. A secret agent from a game comes alive and this kid helps him fight the bad guys while no adult believes his story.
Here’s the plot summary from imdb.net…
11-year-old Davey, whose mother is dead and whose father is preoccupied with his own problems, has retreated into a world of video games and an imaginary hero-pal, the swashbuckling superspy Jack Flack. When an FBI agent about to be murdered slips him a video cartridge containing top-secret data, Davey is suddenly plunged into the intrigue and danger of real-life espionage. No adult believes his story, so he must run a gauntlet of violence and villainy aided only by a younger girl and the encouragement of "Jack Flack" at his side. How long can a comic-book role model guide him through this encounter with reality?
For those of you who may want to know why I didn’t write up anything yesterday…I was kind of disappointed in TV. On Kid Nation, there was a town council election and Taylor got voted out (THANK YOU KIDS!!!), now a fairly unknown kid, Guylan, is on the council for the red district, and Greg showed some compassion towards the younger kids, getting him the gold star. Nothing overwhelming, only politics rearing it’s ugly head in a town of children. Criminal Minds had a kind of surprising ending, but I actually guessed this ending before Aaron Hotchner figured it out. Oh, well. I guess this weekend for me will have some movies in it.
