Strange Dream

Last night (or this morning more accurately) I had a weird dream.

I was driving parakleta's car, but it was a pastel yellow Kingswood.
He was the passanger and we were driving down this two-lane highway.
For some reason I was driving very recklessy, changing lanes willy-nilly,
I think I even clipped a car or two, but nothing serious and we didn't stop.
So, we're in the left-hand lane, and the right-hand lane for some reason is
chocka-block full of cars, yet I decided it's time to change lanes again.
Bam! Straight into the side of a red car in the next lane, spinning him
across both the right and left lanes off the left shoulder of the highway.
I keep driving quite a way up the road before pulling over and reversing
the car along the shoulder back to the scene of the accident.
Neither myself or Parakleta are concerned, with the attitude that the
insurance will cover it, so who gives a shit.
Needless to say the other driver is pissed off to the max.
But I speak to him in an extremely flippant way still, and suggest that
we'd better exchange info. The insurance companies will work it out.
Who gives a fuck.

I find this whole dream very disturbing.
I think crashing into someone else while driving is one of my biggest concerns.

What could this dream mean?

Movie Reviews

Watched Jackass: The Movie last night.
It really was just a triple-length episode, other than a couple of parts where the (relatively) huge budget was obvious.
Just like a TV episode some stunts made me laugh my arse off, some made my eyes water, and some made me sit there hoping it would end soon because it was boring and not at all funny. You would think for a "feature film" they would shoot a lot more stunts so that they could cut out the ones that were crap. But the half-hour of "deleted scenes" were mostly just extensions of scenes in the final film, with a couple of short bits that were just not funny at all.
Overall a fun movie, but not really up to the standard of "feature film".

I used a two-for-one voucher so I also saw Star Trek: Nemesis.
I wasn't paying attention when this was at the cinema, so it's the first time I've missed the theatrical release of a Star Trek movie since Star Trek 6. I wish I had seen it at the cinema, because as always it was a visual feast. This one was a lot darker and less funny than previous outings, but it tied up all the loose ends and made a fitting farewell to the Next Generation cast, if indeed it is the last Star Trek film with this cast (as they tell us it is). The various threads of Star Trek have a tendency to rise from the grave when least expected.

The Polish film I saw at MIFF was too depressing to even think about reviewing here.
It was good though, don't get me wrong.
