Have you ever been to the movies alone.
How about dining alone (is that the same as dining alfresco?)
I do it frequently. Not like weekly or even monthly, but when I get a moment to myself, need to clear my head, or a lil’ time to just do me, I most certainly will go grab a bite and hit a movie, solo.
It all started after a fight with Haikeem many, many moons ago. We lived in Philly, and I had nothing to do and very little dinero, but needed to get.out of.the.house. I hopped on a bus, rode until it stopped in front of movie “feeder” (per Kya) and decided, Why not?
A love was born.
I don’t do horror films – ever. Thrillers, could go either way, depends on the premise and if The Sleepyhead Husband will go with me.
But Crazy Stupid Love was like a good chic lit book – romance, drama, comedy, chemistry. It was goooood, I give it 3 outta 4 stars. For me it got a lil slow after the jaw dropper early on, but it picked up and finished pretty good.
Here is my mental grading system:
I also found this 6 second review guy on moviefone that agrees with a lot of my sentiments. I am luvn that I can tune him in to see if I want to spend $10 and get an answer in ummm, 6 seconds. Yea baby, that’s time of my life I can’t get back.
So far we (me and 6 second review guy) agree on all the movies I’ve seen this Summer:
Cars 2 (no, too many concepts going on for Kya)
Transformers (no, fell asleep, graphics are good, but I lost track of who was who, and what was what, huh. My son loved it though)
Hangover 2 (no, we walked out, that bad)
Bad Teacher (no, I chuckled a few times, but $1 Redbox would have sufficed)
Super 8 (yes, yes, yes, edge of my seat, squeezing my sons arm)
I consider myself a movie buff, ok maybe not but I enjoy the cinema (I’m so fancy) and the super greasy overpriced popcorn they serve, mmm mmm.
But if you need a really, really good date nite movie – See Crazy Stupid Love. Definitely see it if your married with children.
Here’s a thought, I bet there are blogs about movie reviews? But do they have a fancy rating system like mine? NOT!
