Morgan, over at House of Eratosthenes had a post the other day that kind of made me laugh. Go check it out! I’ll wait.
Yeah, the casting, who got an award for what, who’s directing, who’s hoping this is their big comeback vehicle — just kindly skip it all. Fill in the appropriate check marks, below, and that’s good enough for me. That’s more than good enough for me.
I was thinking of Darc and how he likes to watch movies, and how I like to watch movies, which sometimes is more like how a guy watches movies. Don’t get me wrong, I still do the occasional “chick flick” but I won’t do “Rom-Coms” or comedies in general anymore. I even snub romances now, for the most part.
It’s a fortunate thing if I can remember if I’ve even seen a movie. I don’t know why, but generally, when I see a movie, it goes in one eye, gains speed, and goes out the other. One time I was searching through a playlist way back when we had cable and came across a movie I thought had potential. I asked Darc, “This looks good, how about this one?”
“We saw that last weekend.”
I thought I’d keep a running list of movies I’ve seen over on Flixter, much like the Shelfari site, but I never remember to check in there, because I can’t recall anything about recent movies I’ve seen. With the books at least I can go get it and have it in front of me to fill out the Shelfari info stuff. With movies I’m at a complete loss. Gosh, if I ever made it to Jeopardy, it would be on the Special Movie Edition day or something like that, and I’d stand there with my little buzzer thing and a completely blank look. I’d have to start drooling or something so the audience would think I’d had a stroke, and not just a complete idiot when it comes to movies.
But I never forget a birthday.
