Well readers, spring break has ended and it’s back to the real world. Break was rather short and monotonous for me. I waitressed or bartended every day that I was supposed to be “relaxing” and let me tell you it did not recharge my batteries or give me a tan! Now that school has started up again I have work or class every other day. Will this tiresome schedule never end?
I did allow myself to get some rest and relaxation watching movies, while spending some much needed quality time with my boyfriend. I swear W is taking advantage of this blog by making me watch even more ridiculous macho movies. He decided it would be fun to think of five movies, label them one through five, have me pick a number and that would be the movie we would watch.
I was only allowed to choose one of the five in the running, so I chose Demolition Man. I have seen it way back when and actually enjoyed it. Sandra Bullock stars alongside Sylvester Stallone and she is one of my favorite actresses. So when it came time to choose a number I came up with a genius plan to pick the movie I wanted. I knew W wouldn’t make my choice number one but since he had trouble coming up with movies I knew without a doubt it would be number two. And what do you know readers? I got exactly what I wanted.
Other movies I watched over break included It’s Kind of a Funny Story, a film starring Zach Galifianakis. I highly recommend this satirical comedy which is based on a depressed teen who checks himself into a mental hospital. It left a bitter sweet impression upon me but I was left smiling thorough my tears.
Another film I saw is Tron: Legacy, which I viewed with W and his room mate. Based on the previews I did not think I would enjoy this film, however, the visuals and extravagant light display that composed the majority of the movie made the plot slightly better in my mind. It was convenient to have two nerd boys in the room I must say because I was a little lost with the technological aspects of this film. Watch it and tell me what you think!
