Movie Fest

With a weekend of nothing to do, I spent the weekend in my jammies, watched films, ate oreos and not much else. The "what not to rent" list goes something like this...

Cloverfield - It's Godzilla meets the Blair Witch Project. It made me sort of nauseous with all that camera jumping but once you get used to it, it's just gross but engaging enough to see whose going to expire next.

Juno - I feel as though I shouldn't say anything negative about this one since everyone seemed to love it but kids with vocabularies way beyond their years and families who have it all figured out just rub me the wrong way. Don't get me wrong, I loved the cast and Juno herself was a hoot but it's so unrealistic to think any family would just stroll into their teen's unplanned pregnancy with such aplomb!

The Mist - a Steven Spielberg thriller that had me going right up until the end and then it's all...ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? You'll have to see it for yourself.

And that wraps up another exciting weekend in sunny, sweltering Florida! There was swimming while I was still clean, everyone needs a little vitamin D. I cleaned the garage, the car actually fits in it now, laundry and a lot of vacuuming that went on for 20 minutes until I realized it wasn't working because there wasn't a bag in the damn thing! The carpet's still a mess, I gave up instantly after the no bag incident was discovered.

Oh, and P.S. I Love You. No, not you, the movie. The ultimate in sappy, romantic films. Yes, I cried and cried and I loved it. I love romance, sweeping images of places I've never seen, handsome men with accents and hopeful, happy endings.

Oh, yeah and I knit some. This is still a knitting blog!
