So, I was writing this post about the things I want to do, but haven’t gotten around to, because, you know, I’m human or whatever and pretty busy, I guess. Big on that list was Watch Movies. I used to always read the movie reviews in my local newspaper and now I listen every week to Filmspotting. I hear about movies when they’re still in production and I say things like, “I really want to see that when it comes out.” But, then it does come out and I never go see it. Like, ever. Not even when it comes to video. Not even when the DVD price is reduce to $10. Never. And, then when someone brings it up later, I have nothing to contribute besides, “Oh yeah, I meant to go see that movie.”
The thing is that I really like movies. I love fiction period. But, to see it all brought to life has the potential to be so affecting. Not that it takes much for me. I have grown a little too cynical for most romantic comedies, it’s true, but I will pretty much cry at anything remotely serious. My worst was crying at Drumline when it came out that the guy couldn’t read music. Oops, Spoiler Alert!!!
This is all to say that I made the impulsive decision to try Netflix again, because the watch instantly feature is amazing and I thought I’d give actually watching movies another go.
So far I’ve watched Step Brothers, Bewitched, Becoming Jane, and The Cider House Rules. Let me hear your recommendations!
