Not much lol, but I have seen a few movies :)
On Sunday, I went to see My Bloody Valentine--mainly because Jensen Ackles was in it and because it was in 3D.
I'm not too big a fan of horror...at all, but I still enjoyed this--just had to close my eyes a few times.
I have this habit of showing up early to movies, so I got there like 20 minutes before showtime and was the first one there. Played with the 3D glasses some, then zoned out to wait for entertainment. Wasn't too much longer before this couple came in. OMG they were hilarious! They were the type that doesn't take crap from each other, so they playfully bickered. The guy decided, while being painfully slow about it, on sitting in the row in front of me. Then he lined himself up with the center of the screen, which was right in front of me, and teased me for getting the best seat. He stood in front of me, moved one to the side, back in front of me, etc. Then he sat in front of me. The seats are nice so he didn't really block off my view. GF/Wife double checked that it was okay with me before taking her own seat. They chatted about the popcorn, to get nachos and candy or not, and...it was just so freaking hilarious. While he was gone, I chatted to the lady about some of the other theaters she has gone to and stuff.
Then a gang of about 7 noisy teens sat in the row behind me (WTF people? Next time, I won't try to nab good seats). They kinda irritated me since they were being loud and I couldn't listen in on the couple in front of me--lol.
Okay, movie time. Got the sign to put on glasses. Immediately everyone ooh'ed over the 3D logo.
I hadn't seen a 3D movie before, and it was definitely impressive. Glad that they didn't over use the scenes that had stuff jumping out towards you. Made the times that it did happen all the more effective. Example: Toward the very beginning. Bad guy with a Pick Axe--Scene was shows in some promotional interviews and stuff. Baddie throws the weapon towards the 'viewers' and it gets embedded in a car, cutting to a scene like you would be seeing it from inside the car. One of the gals behind me freaked out and dropped her popcorn. LMAO!
But the gore...definitely didn't need to see a 3D look at the inside of a gal who had her heart cut out. Or someone's head chopped in half with a shovel!
But the twist! Very nice! And I want to see again, but I really don't want to spend another 8.50--2 bucks more because it is a 3D.
The glasses were a little bit uncomfortable after awhile, so I had to cushion it with hair, but that did the trick.
I also went to see Valkyrie twice. I liked it a lot more than I thought I would. I really didn't find any scenes drawn out or boring, which is a rarity. Even seeing it the second time, there was no signing from me during any scenes at having to see them again. Definitely going to be buying this one when it comes out on video.
We all know what is going to happen in the movie, yet it is hard not to cheer his character along and cross our fingers, hoping he will succeed in killing Hitler (umm...sorry if that was a spoiler, because it really shouldn't have been).
(and yes, the eye patch was nummy :P )
Thankfully, it isn't showing here any more or else I might go again.
Maybe it will move to the little 3 screen theater so I can finally use up my 10 dollar gift card--worried that place is going to go out of business soon since it can't really compete at all with the new 10 screen theater. With the new one, if you go to the first showing of the day of a movie, it is a dollar off, so only 6.50 :)
was able to find some cheap airline tickets, so in April, Michelle, Gin, and I are going to go to San Francisco. After Dad throwing a fit over LA a few years back, he's not even going to try to fight this one lol.
Mom's going in for surgery for gallbladder today. Has to get up at 5 in the morning and be at the hospital by 6. I think I am going to wait up for her to get up in the morning before heading to bed. As long as I am in bed by 5:30, I'll get my 6 hours sleep that I need to feel human when I wake up :)
