Most of the year there are not a lot of movies that I "need" to see. I do go to see some cause my kids want to. Usually they're pretty cute. We are past the stage of the really lame ones. The ones that I used to bring my IPod to, is that wrong?
It's usually during the holiday season ( I am so far past the point of saying the Christmas season, I can't even tell you) anyway, that I want to see ALL the movies out. Well, lots of them. I will say, contrary to popular opinion one movie that I don't want to see. And I've heard it's great. Marley and Me. My friend Suzy told me her eyes were puffy from crying for hours after that movie was over. This is what I surmise from that...(only three Mark ;) ), okay, it's a dog movie, it was sad. I'm thinkin' the dog dies at some point. Sorry, I don't want to see that. If pressed to tell the story I would start crying about my dog Buddy who died 5 years ago. I hate sad animal things! I can't stand it. My kids want to see this movie though and honestly, Saige would be fine, Chase is like me, if he goes, I better be with him. You know, so he can comfort me. Like he did the day he made me show him Buddy's ashes and his leash was inside the box. Sorry, train of thought is wandering. I'm going to tell you why.
I can't even think straight. Marc and I went to see 7 Pounds. Not a knee slapper. There were no funny one liners by Vince Vaughn, at no point did Will Ferrell have a funny accent and made me laugh. Not at all. I was confused for the first little bit. Once we figured out what was going on my eyes were at the very least filled with tears, if not running down my cheeks for rest of the movie. This might not be everyone's reaction, I've heard it got bad reviews. It was mine though. It was about love and giving and guilt and resolution. It was about people, they weren't all happy and perfect, they were flawed and heart broken for all different reasons. If you took the time to really think about it, it said a lot. That's why I can't think straight. Now I am going to watch Edtv, cause it's funny and stupid and doesn't require a lot of thought.
Merry Christmas is over for the year. Yay.
