Never Enough Movies

I’ve wanted to post a few times in the last week and a bit. But the only things I have wanted to post about are movies. I am not a great reviewer and so I didn’t want to bore anyone. But then I decided, who cares, and so here I am writing about movies.

So, basically all I have been doing with my time is watching movies. I’m not complaining. I have never been shy about the fact that I love watching movies!! It is definitely my favorite past time. Usually cross stitching and watching movies go hand in hand in my house. Unfortunately, I haven’t been doing a whole heck of a lot of cross stitching lately. Honestly, since I got my iPad, I have been playing on it to keep my hands busy. Curse the Draw Something game. It is so utterly addicting.

The highlight of the movies I watched are definitely the Rocky movies. We own them because Peter likes them. I had never seen them before. Really, I had no desire to watch them either as I really dislike boxing/sports movies. So I was very skeptical. Well after watching all 6 movies in the span of 4 days, I had to concede tht I really rather enjoyed them. Especially Rocky and Rocky II. Brilliant. There was only 1 big boxing match in each movie. The rest was spent on story and background. I didn’t like Rocky’s character at first, but he really grew on me. A very lovable character. And now I know what they mean when they say Rocky blocks punches with his face LOL. I now am even considering the name Rocky as a name for my child. I am a little nervous that he would be teased, but you know what, no matter what you name your kids, some bully will make fun of their name. There is no win win situation there.

I also went to see Love Never Dies with my mom. It was a special one night screening at our local movie theatre. In case you have never heard of it, LND is the sequel to Phantom of the Opera. The movie was a recorded stage performance from Australia. It was wonderful and I thought it was pretty well done as far as sequels go. I watched the Phantom movie that morning so that I was fresh on the story. The music was enthralling. There was one scene where I was so “involved” in the show that I started clapping after one musical dancing number. Needless to say I was the only one clapping in the dead silence of the theatre. I totally forgot we were seeing the show as a movie and not a live performance. It was embarrassing. But hey, I enjoyed myself and it was fun to see a movie with my mom. I usually go with my friends and she doesn’t go to movies very often. We shared popcorn :geek:

Right now I am in line for an advanced screening of The Lucky One. I entered a contest and was delighted to find out that I won tickets, again! Remember, I won screening tickets of American Reunion a couple weeks ago. I should really go buy a lottery ticket as luck seems to be with me :smirk: I am looking forward to this movie and I hope it will be good!

    Winning tickets for The Lucky One, that’s quite fun to say ;) I’ve never seen the Rocky movies either, only bits and pieces of them, but I might reconsider now! There’s just sooo many movies I want to see, and I don’t have the time :O

    I’ve never watched a Rocky movie all the way through, but my husband is really into the first one. They’ve been made fun of so many times in pop culture though, it’s probably hard to take them seriously now, lol.
    I’d also like to see The Lucky One and American Reunion. That’s awesome that you won tickets! :D
