So last week, Wednesday through Sunday nights I went and saw movies. I don't recommend this, or any of the movies I went and saw. Got it? But here's a few notes.
Wednesday: The Proposal (con mi esposa): I'm not into dudes, but Ryan Reynolds is hot.
Thursday: I Love You, Beth Cooper (with my mBear): This strongly reminded me of a cross between Can't Hardly Wait and Dude Where's My Car. Enjoyable. Not sure how well it would hold up to subsequent viewings though? Let's find out, mBear!
Friday: My Big Fat Greek Wedding (at Nasher Sculpture Center): It was a warm night to watch a movie outdoors. Again, not into dudes, but that John Corbett! 3U! While on the subject of John Corbett, some of the best scenes ever filmed of that guy are in the movie Serendipity, where he plays Kate Beckinsale's new-age-musician-boyfriend. Funny every time!
Saturday: Star Trek (with @ReallyIsaac): I had already seen this a few times. I have mixed feelings about it. In general, awesome. In particular, I wish it hadn't received so much "prequel" billing, because that's not really what it is. Before I saw it the first time, I read an interview with JJ Abrams about the fact that he used a lot of lens flare, and I noticed it, but for some reason this time I noticed HOW MUCH he used it. It's all over the place.
Sunday: (500) Days of Summer (with Isaac and @cookiecupcakes): I enjoyed it. Much more, in fact, than either of the people I saw it with. Again, it would be interesting to see how this one holds up to subsequent viewings. I don't know how to word this, but I like the way they handled the timeline. If you see it you'll know what I'm talking about. And I've said it before, but I love the movie poster. Speaking of which, another movie poster I love is The Time Traveler's Wife. How cute is Rachel McAdams?
So, yeah. This week I'm going to make better use of my time (referring of course to the movies, not the people I watched them with).
