Thursday’s Movie Round-up

1 Comment

Spending every weekend away from home can be tiring, and the thought of sleeping on a love seat makes me ache with defeat.  This and many other weekends are better spent resting for the eventual weekends away.Tieredsleeping

Resting is comprised of four parts: sleeping in, watching sports w/ booze, playing videogames, and going to the movies/out to drink.  This would be an ideal resting day – lots of sitting and minimal movement would be required.  With college football all but done, except for Jan. 4th of course, Saturdays are open for the other three.

Tis the season for peliculas, but be careful there is a lot of crap out there, and your Tivo may be the only one you can trust…

  • Good early buzz, this movie may deliver for those disappointed in this year’s after-school
    special that was the Goblet of Fire.  Long lines are guaranteed for this one so buy tickets early, go drink at the local restaurant/bar and sneak past the parents hauling kids and shove the old folks down, and good seats will be yours.  If you’re desperate for a good seat, take your leftover Halloween costume and wear it to the theatre.  No one wants to talk to or be associated with a person who dressed up for the movies.

  • If you spent your pre-Halloween days satisfied with your idea to be one of the two confused gay cowboys from this movie, but then realized on Halloween that it isn’t the conversation starter you had imagined, this is the movie for you this weekend.  It has the best preliminary buzz, but we all know how critics red rocket for the genre reversing drama types.   Lines are sure to be short, but I would recommend Walk the Line if you’re looking for a drama fix.

More to come…
