This past weekend the old Angelika movie theater downtown reopened as a Sundance Cinema. We (including all of my friends) are especially happy about this because the theater is closer, doesn't get the throngs of masses and shows many independent as well as mainstream movies. Our first viewing there was My Week with Marilyn, which was a simply charming movie and Michelle Williams definitely deserves an Oscar nod for her performance.
On the flip side, I saw Breaking Dawn last night, which was melodramatic and completely cheesy. I had a good laugh and was entertained, I will give it that.
The other movies we watched over the weekend were The Descendants (Clooney was great; another good one), Midnight Cowboy (we like to watch old Oscar winners and this one was definitely interesting; can't believe it was rated X when it first opened!), and Soul Plane (this would have been much better with some chemical enhancement, but it was worth the $0.53 rental!). You know you are getting old when your primary form of entertainment is the movies! In our defense, the end of the year is usually about the time most of the movies worth seeing are released; we always try to catch the movies and actors up for Oscars before the awards the next year.
This photo makes me smile because I am laughing at something the hubs has said. Posing with the vintage Corvette was my idea but I am not quite the pin up girl.
