I don't usually go to many movies at the theater. Well, once in a while and mostly with caflygrl
. But the past few days have been filled with movies. Since the 28th I've seen four (yes, FOUR) movies in the theater.
See, once upon a time when I was in high school and lived in Seattle and all my friends were boys, I used to go to one movie with 6 boys. Apparently when you grow up the only thing that changes is that you see more movies with one boy each. ;)
As an aside, it does always strike me when I visit Seattle that all my friends here are still boys.
In any case, the four movies:
Friday I saw Sweeney Todd
with Robb. I wasn't really thinking of seeing it until he suggested it, but I really enjoyed it. It was a little on the bloody side, but not *too* gory. The only part that really got me was some of the very end, the blood aspect didn't really bug me. The acting was rather amazing.
Sunday I saw Atonement
. It was really really really good. And I guessed the ending.
Today I first saw Juno
with Brian and then I Am Legend
with Jason. At the same theater. I am totally nuts. It was also the theater where I saw Atonement
, so I may have actually spent more time there than my "home base" at my aunt and uncle's house. Certainly more waking hours. ;)
Oh, right, the movies... Juno
was amazing, hilarious, and probably my favorite movie of the year. Granted it is the first day of the year but... well... hey I reserve the right to change my mind later! And I did see three movies today counting The Usual Suspects
from Netflix...I Am Legend
was really good too. I also guessed a big portion of the end of that one, but it was fairly obvious. At least I thought so.
So now that I've seen practically every movie currently in the theater, I think I'm movied out for a bit. Well, unless I find The Diving Bell and the Butterfly
