I’m not doing a “This Week” this week because though it was busy week, there’s wasn’t much worth noting other than Wee-J is walking like a pro and I was continually amazed by how much a cute little girl can unload in a diaper at one time.
While I have a 2-Do List that’s a mile long waiting for me at home (and a jam-packed weekend of activities that will allow for little free time to get much of anything done) I’ve decided to skip out of work a bit early and hit the megaplex to see an actual first-run movie on a big screen. Wow, I’ve almost forgotten what it’s like. Five years ago, at the height of my movie watching, I’d see a movie in the theater twice a week on average. My most recent trip to the movies was back in June. Half a year ago! I’m long overdue.
‘Tis the season when movie studios release their A-game in the first rush for Oscar gold. While I couldn’t care less about the awards and all the hype attached, it’s good news for people who love movies.
Here’s my list of theatrical films to catch in the next month:
Juno: The buzz on this one is great and the premise (pregnant teen seeks good parents for her kid) has promise.
Atonement: I’ll see it despite Keira Knightley’s presence. The trailer look beautiful and the story is based on a book by Ian McEwan that I kept meaning to read.
Enchanted: Yeah, I know, It’s dripping in Disney, but everything I’ve heard and read about it makes it seem like they got it right. Sweet escapism.
No Country For Old Men: Coen Brothers. A must see.
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street: Numero uno on my list of films to see. I love Johnny Depp, love love Alan Rickman and love love love this Sondheim musical. Can. Not. Wait!
What about you? Anything you’re especially looking forward to?
