Ah, what better way to not work than by watching a movie? It looks to me as though there are some decent choices arriving at your local movie theater this weekend…not, of course, that I’ll be going out to watch any of them. I’m terribly picky about what I see actually “at the movies”. It has to be either something I am really, really dying to see, or something that I feel it is necessary to see on the big screen (action, etc.). However, I think that The American and Going the Distance are both definite “Wait for Netflix” options. Particularly Going the Distance, since I love a good rom-com and Drew Barrymore. Plus, A.O. Scott gave it a good review! That’s generally important, but not a deal breaker, IMO.
But no, I will not be headed to the movies this weekend. However, I do have fun things at home: The Philadelphia Story (which I have been looking forward to for YEARS) and License to Kill (the second Dalton-as-Bond outing). It remains to be seen if we will fit both of those in, but I’ll let you know. I apologize for the lack of reviews lately-been watching a lot of movies attached to “projects” and so I don’t want to review them, since they will be discussed (soon, I promise) as part of a larger picture.
Happy weekend! Hope you see something fun, have a relaxing and safe weekend, and get to sleep in on Monday!
