Because I don't have a bunch of writer friends with whom I can expound about the trials and tribulations about writing I realize that I put it here. And that is pretty much all that my blog is about. And really, that's kinda boring. Yeah, a post here and there, but not all of them. And I realized, with the little light bulb burning my hair, that is probably the reason why it's hard for me to write blogs. So on to something new!
My mom's birthday was yesterday and I told her I'd take her to the movies, to whatever one she wants to see. Sadly the one she really wants to see doesn't come out until Friday, so we've postponed her birthday until then. I'm taking her to see Red Riding Hood. Doesn't it look wonderfully awful? I am so excited to see it. There are some movies that you see the trailers for and you just know its going to be an awesome, well plotted, well acted movie that is well worth the $10 a ticket. And then there are others that you just know wont even get the smallest nomination, except maybe the Razzie Awards, but you just can't resist going to see.
I know we all have movies that we love and will watch over and over again no matter how terrible a movie it really was if you took the time to look at it intellectually. But seriously does a movie have to be dramatic and serious for it to be good? Does it have to be perfectly acted and directed? No. It just has to be a good time and not make you mad that you spent the money on it, let alone the two hours of your life you'll never get back.
Red Riding Hood looks like one of these movies. I think its gonna be cheesy. I think its gonna be totally cliche. And I think its gonna be a really good time. And hopefully it'll be playing in the 21+ theater in Thousand Oaks so we can enjoy a glass of bubbly while we watch. My guess? Red Riding Hood is the wolf. We'll see if I'm right.
Another movie I'm not embarrassed to admit I'm looking forward to is Suckerpunch. Oh, yeah, this looks terrible and totally worth it. I'll let you know how both turn out.
