First off, today was a sad day. Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson both passed away, the latter came as a total shock. Michael Jackson was definitely more relevant to me than Farrah but both are sad losses. Time to dig out my Thriller cassette tape. Oh yes, I said cassette.
Now back to our regularly scheduled post…….
I am a total movie fanatic. I love going to see movies, smuggling in candy and taking advantage of its free heat or AC during the winter or summer.
And now that we’re almost half-way through the summer movie season, here are the movies I cannot wait to go see:
Love Michael Mann and of course Johnny Depp and Christian Bale. Bring it on! Plus it was filmed in Wisconsin :)
Time Traveler’s Wife
This book broke a piece of me inside. That said, I’m curious how they will remake this. Plus Rachel McAdams is gorgeous!
Transformers 2 (woo hoo!)
Checking my brain at the door and watching lots of stuff get blown up. Awesomeness
500 Days of Summer
I’m obsessed with this trailer. I love Joseph Gordon-Levitt and there are musical numbers!
My brother had all the toys growing up, I think he’s more excited about this than me. And there should be some sweet man eye candy too
Haven’t read the book but I love Amy Adams and the trailer makes me want to learn to cook!
Hopefully as funny as “Knocked Up” without being too long
Cute story about falling in love. Cast looks great
Movies not on the list:
My Sister’s Keeper
The book broke my heart, I know I won’t be able to stop the tears. And I don’t know how believable Cameron Diaz is as a mom
I’ve never read any of the books or seen any of the movies. No lie!
On a quick side note, TC and I hit the movie theater last weekend and opted not to scan for guys but rather just enjoy the AC and relax.
We saw “Away We Go” and “The Hangover.” I know, two TOTALLY different films.
First, “Away We Go” was great. I highly recommend it. My boyfriend John K was great and Maya Rudolph totally surprised me. She’s matured well beyond SNL. Yes, John looks like Grizzly Adams (nothing a razor and scissors can’t fix) but it was really well acted, written and directed. A great mix of happy and sad with some really funny scenes mixed in.
And “the Hangover,” makes me look at my Vegas trip very differently! Boy it was tame in comparison. And it makes me want to go back to Vegas right now. The movie is absolutely hilarious, but slightly distasteful too. So go see it :)
What movies are you looking forward to seeing this summer? Any big plans for the weekend?
