Of all the possible ways I could spend my weekend, I can't think of a better reality than what actually transpired: me and Yesenia, on the couch, under the blanket, Christmas lights on, watching DVD after DVD while snacking on leftovers.
Hope your pre- and post-Christmas were as lovely as ours.
Any interesting DVDs?
Bear in mind, it wasn't the quality of the films that made the weekend so nice as the quality of the company:
- Flight of the Conchords Season 2
- 500 Days of Summer
- The Hangover
- Monsters vs. Aliens
- While You Were Sleeping
- Bender's Game
- Bart Got a Room
- Angels and Demons
Bran said 500 Days was infuriating and realitic at the same time..
I tried watching 3 minutes of Monsters vs Aliens before I shut it off.. total crap... I couldnt take the annoying OVER THE TOP facial expressions
Angels and Demons.. completely irrelevant hack plot.. that I guessed in under a minute..
Monsters vs. Aliens wasn't great, but I was entertained (it helped that we watched that one with Max & Matilda, who love it). 500 Days is like a rorschach test, because it's told from the POV of the Joseph Gordon-Levitt character - so it think the believability and annoyance is in the eyes of the viewer.
I actually liked 'Angels & Demons' a lot, although I do wonder if it's just because my expectations for it had been lowered to about zero. I mean, it was a sequel to a film I disliked adapted from a book by a writer whom I can't even get through one chapter of...
...anyway, I liked it.
