Movie weekend

Not much to report here. All weekend we watched movies. We’re on season 3 of the Sopranos. His therapist was just raped and Christopher was just made. I tried to get the next one but it turns out some other person in Greenpoint is at the same point in the series. So we opted for The Color of Money and Walking and Talking instead. I saw Blue Crush on Friday and, you can laugh at me for it, but I enjoyed it. I did.
We also tried to watch Lord of the Rings. I couldn’t do it. What is it about me that makes science fiction—fantasy crap so damn boring? I found myself thinking about everything but the actual movie. We gonged it after about an hour.
Other than that, not much to report. It rained all weekend long. I enjoyed it. I’m like that. I went out for a drink with Danielle on Sunday evening. We caught up. I like Danielle, I always have, but it seems, every time I go out and chat with people, I end up feeling very lonely afterwards. It’s odd. Anyhow, time to archive.

  1. What did you think of Walking and Talking?

    And Lord of the Rings? Pretty to look at; boring to watch. At least in my opinion.

  2. I had seen it years ago… Walking and Talking that is. I forgot a lot about it. I like movies like that. There were a whole slew of them released in the 90s and I think I watched every one of them at least once.

    I love Catherine Keener as well. She’s so good.

  4. Walking and Talking is one of my favorite movies of all time. I know it sounds so trite, but that movie totally paralleled my life. I watch it all the time, even though crazy Anne Heche is in it. “I’m farting.” “I thought so.”

  7. See… now I just don’t think so. It’s not that I can even really judge it or talk about it as I didn’t even finish it. But, that’s the thing, I couldn’t bring myself to give up 3 hours to watch it. Oh well, maybe it was the mood. Who knows.

    I think science fiction/fantasy lost me at the Dark Crystal.

  8. Meaning, btw, I loved the Dark Crystal. Nothing can touch it. The special effects…. the gelflings… Fizgig…

  9. I’m not a sci-fi/fantasy fan. And during Lord of the Rings, although I totally appreciate the cinematography and all, I wanted to punch those stupid hobbits in the face. I didn’t care about the ring, I didn’t care where they were going, I just wanted them to all stop arguing, stop making stupid mistakes and get the goddamn job done.

    I guess I wasn’t quite the target audience for that flick.

    The main reason I watched the whole thing was because Viggo looked really handsome. ;)

  10. Freakgirl, you make me giggle and laugh. That’s damn good stuff right there.

    Elijha (or whatever his name is) bugs me to no end. Little hairless, disproportionate, freak.

  13. Missy – I haven’t caught that yet. Did you like it?

  14. I have not. But Keener is in it, so I surely will soon.

    Andrea, that would have rocked. You should name your kid that.

  15. I loved Lord of the Rings mostly, but I didn’t like the parts where those bumbling hobbits bumbled. Nothing frustrates me more in a movie or tv show than the bumbling up of the job as a plot point.

    Mmmm…Viggo.

  16. Who is this Viggo you two ladies speak of?

  17. L&A: Yes, I very much enjoyed it. It’s a chick flick, in that it’s about women, but it’s not annoying, cliched, or basest. More like a little narrative of unique peoples’ lives, but with elements that we can all relate to….insecurity, how characteristics of our parents get passed down, etc.
