There will be - - - Movies
Nice thing about being "senior" - cheap movie tickets.
Let's see, what have I seen lately? The latest Batman movie, The Dark Knight - Ledger was awesome, scary. I have to admit I was sleeping through a lot of it - now, that's tired!
Next, Journey to the Center of the Earth - Exciting and fun, what I saw of it. Slept through lots of it too.
Stayed awake through: Wanted with Angelina Jolie. What can I say? Looking at her is worth it, other than that, blood and brains - but maybe a good escapist action film....she's so funny sometimes in her choice of films.
TWICE - I saw Mama Mia - this film delighted me from the tips of my toes to the top of my head - partially because the cast acted like they were having the time of their lives. Also I love that people past 35 having sex lives and being energetic and fun was actually portrayed in a film coming out of Hollywood. Aww, suck it up, you'll all pass 35 sooner or later, my dears. Be happy to know its not over. Seriously, this was such a fun film - a must see. "H" even smiled his way through it...at first he thought it was a pure girly film then began to have a great time!
This afternoon I watched There will be Blood in between two two phone calls from my daughter. (She had been to New Orleans and shot a photo of some spirits or something - yes, I'll post it later.) Anyway, watching how getting oil was done in the "early" days was interesting. I think what it does to people's lives is probably pretty much the same today...greed will eat a person up sooner or later. What getting oil does to people's lives - we now see on a global scale.
Amazing what can be accomplished when the kids leave home, ha ha!
