I know I’ve talked about this before, but I’ll say it again: I am not a movie-watcher at all. In fact, I’ve missed some of the most important movies of my day (seriously, read here to see how horrible I am). Usually, going to see movies is the last thing I care to do and I rarely ever go. Maybe once or twice a year you’ll find me in a movie theater. I have a really bad attention span, made worse by this day and age. There’s too much to do at all times and I have a difficult time sitting and being entertained by a movie. It’s almost kind of sad. I don’t even watch much TV anymore; sometimes I have it on, but I never really pay attention. My brain just doesn’t let me. And if I’m with other people, forget it. I talk way too much. However, my aunt and uncle have pretty much every movie channel ever made at their house. And so, this weekend, I basically sat in their house with the pups on my lap and watched movies while I did work. And I really, really enjoyed it. What I watched:
Music and Lyrics- I am a huge Hugh Grant fan and he played one of his typical characters in this movie. Obviously not the best movie ever made, but I thought it was cute and like I said, if Hugh Grant is there, I’ll watch it.
Because I said So- Mandy Moore is one of my favorite actresses/people ever and she is adorable in this movie. Plus, I could totally relate to the mother/daughter relationship…granted, my mom and I don’t discus orgasms, we do have a close relationship and I can definitely see her trying way hard to set me up with some guy and pushing him on me to the point where I start hating him. This was just a feel-good movie…and it made me a bit emotional.
So I heard it was kind of lame, but I really think I need to see American Dreamz, because hi, Mandy Moore and Hugh Grant? Basically a dream come true.
Thin- Another documentary that my “cousin” made about anorexia. Really powerful. Nina and I watched it and then went back to our apartment and pigged out on junk food. I think we were just triple-checking that we are not anorexic. We might have to check again tomorrow. And the next day.
The 3rd season of Weeds- This is a seriously good show. When I first heard about it, I thought, “ehhh a show about weed??” and pretty much decided I would never watch it. But it’s actually really, really good. I’m pretty sure it’s coming back for a 4th season, but I kind of like the way the 3rd one ended, so I’m not sure where they’re really gonna go with another season. It will be interesting to see.
I feel like I’m really actually starting to like movies, which is huge for me. Maybe next year I’ll try to see all of the Oscar-nominated movies. And then, eventually, I will become an Academy member. Sounds like a plan.
Sadly, my “cousin” did not with the Oscar, but I still think she’s awesome. And she looked beautiful, despite the fact that they totally pronounced her name wrong!
It was a bad idea to have the little Oscar-watching party at my apartment. Because left behind were: lots of chips, lemon squares, brownies, peanut butter cookies, popcorn, hot chocolate, etc. I am going to have to get out of the apartment for a while tomorrow because I cannot sit here surrounded by all of this food. And as we have already determined, I am not anorexic. If I was, having all this food here would be an awesome show of strength. Oh well.
