Last night, Babe and I watched the end of One Day. It only took us three nights to watch it from beginning to end. It started off okay. The end was just… I wasn’t interested any more. It got weird. Slow. Predictable. Unfortunate. I feel like it could have ended about 3 times before it actually did. Because we watched it over a 3 night period, all I remember about the movies was the never-endingness of it. I could never recommend it to anyone.
The movies we have (on the computer) now to watch are Alice in Wonderland (which we started last night) and Narnia. Alice in Wonderland is looking good so far. We don’t know what we’ll get next. What I REALLY wanna watch (f0r the 5th time) is Ira & Abby, but we can’t seem to find it to download. I like it so much that I think I’ll buy it on Amazon.com. It’s is just SO good and quirky and fun and funny. Like Dharma & Greg or something. It’s great. Babe wants me to watch Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Annie, and a few others that I’ve never watched. I know, I know. Totally lame that I’ve never watched Annie.
I reeeally like indie movies. Ira & Abby, Juno, Death at a Funeral (the British one), and a bunch of others that I can’t think of right now. When I lived in Halifax, I spent quite a bit of money at Video Difference, the local movie rental store. I think movies were like $5 for a week, and some of them were available for 2 weeks. They even had new releases, but only for 1 or 2 day rentals. I would go straight to the Independent section and spend forever trying to decide on the 4 or 5 movies I budgeted for. Such FUN! I also like drama and thrillers. I can’t deal with chick flicks. They’re just not my thing. Comdey… I like it dark. Or sarcastic. Jim Carrey’s brand of comedy only serves to piss me off. A lot. To drive this point home, let me say that I hate EVERY Jim Carrey movie (yes, even the non-comedies – he ruins them), and I hated The Hangover, Bridesmaids, and pretty much every other cheesy and/or stupid comedy ever.
Movies I liked:
- The Dark Knight
- Death at a Funeral (British)
- Ira & Abby
- Lucky Number Slevin
- The Lovely Bones
- The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas
- Memoirs of a Geisha (Better than the movie! Can you imagine?!)
- Charlie Bartlett
- Water for Elephants
- Corrina, Corrina
- My Girl (1 and 2)
- Anything with Julia Roberts
So, 1/4 of my way through making this list, I asked Babe for help. She started tossing movie after movie at me. When she finally stopped, she asked, “Anything else you need to know about yourself?” Hahahaha. I said, “That’s all for now, thank you.” This woman! 🙂
