Movies, anyone?

There are a couple of movies I've been wanting to see. Just a disclaimer: I am sooooo out of touch with most of the current movies out right now- partly because I could give a crap, partly because I just don't have the damn time (or energy) to watch them. I'd rather sleep, eat, or stare at the wall.....

On top of not having the time, if I had the time, it would mean finding a babysitter and paying her to come over. I dunno, but spending the cash ($20 for sitter + $20 for movie + $10 for drinks/candy/popcorn because if I'm going I'm going ALL out = $50 for 90 minutes...ouch) to watch a movie in the theatre- at this point it's just not worth it. I don't know if you know this but I'm a tad bit thrifty. I like the word thrifty better than cheap but..... same difference.


When I pick a movie to see, it's moved into a very elite group of flicks. It should feel lucky that I want to see it (in case any of the movies are reading...).

Also, I have a strategy for watching movies. I go into each one thinking it's going to suck. Not even hoping it *might* be a little entertaining...but assuming that it will REALLY suck. That way, I'm never disappointed. If it really does suck, well, ha, I already knew that. If it doesn't suck, then I can be pleasantly surprised. It's worked out well.

Here are the movies that I want to see:

Stardust. This is a chick flick for sure, which is part of the reason I haven't seen it yet. I've heard it's very enjoyable (it sucks), and I like the actresses in it (Michelle Pfeiffer, Claire Danes, Sienna Miller). I would have loved to have seen it in the theatre (with my mom!) but, it just wasn't in the pun intended. Chick flicks definitely have to be watched at the right time. You cant just go see a chick flick with your husband- it would totally ruin the movie! They'd sit next to you and burp and fart and roll their eyes, and not have any clue that they'd need to hand you a tissue at the appropriate time.

10,000 BC. This one I can even take my husband to ! This movie looks just plain COOL (it sucks). I really like this director, and I've never heard of any of the main actors, so how can you go wrong? This is one I'd almost pay a sitter to see in the theatre....

27 Dresses. *blush* Another chick flick. I really like Katherine Heigl. I rubbed shoulders with her at the Las Vegas airport before she became big and famous. She was tall and thin and gorgeous. I remember she had a gold charm bracelet on, and she was flying coach. Fun movie (it sucks).

Doomsday. Okay, I'm embarrassed. This will be one of those Blockbuster rentals "I hope no one sees me renting this because it sucks..." kind of movies. But I cant deny it...I like science fiction silliness like this!

DH and I watched Stardust together. We loved it. It was kinda sci-fi/fantasy/adventure/strange comedy. Good flick.
