wisdom from the tv people who say things in the background.
I kept letting myself sleep this morning so when I finally did get out of bed I felt vaguely lazy and guilty for not moving my ass sooner. When I came down my mom reminded me that she wanted to go to a movie today. She wants to see Signs.
I've wanted to see Minority Report since it came out and I've dilligently avoided media about it so that I wouldn't have anything spoiled. I wanted to know as little as possible about it. She keeps saying that we can go see it (it's too late today anyway for the only matinee show time for it in the area. We're poor people. We go to the matinees) but then we end up seeing that YaYa sisterhood movie instead.
I don't mind going to the movies with my mom.
I just wish that it was ever what I wanted to see. And while she's insisting that she'll go see Minority Report... she'd hate it. Really. She would hate it. I know her taste and it's the sort of thing that, were it on USA, she'd get annoyed that my father was watching it. So I can't just say "yeah, let's go" knowing she's going to sit there and not enjoy herself at all.
So I'll see minority report when it comes out on video or something. And I have no interest in seeing Signs.. but uh, I think that's my choices since I can't get her down to the art theatre in norfolk to see L'Anglaise et le duc . Or to at least get her to go to Portsmouth so that we can see signs at the historical Commodore theatre.
I could deal with seeing something I'm pretty sure I won't enjoy if I'm somewhere cool.
I could see K-19, Eight Legged Freaks, Like Mike, Lilo&Stitch, Martin Lawrence- Run Tel Dat, Men in Black 2, Mr. Deeds, Stuart Little 2, The Country Bears or the Master of Disguise.... there's just a WEALTH of WONDERFUL movies to go see. Yeah. Vomit and puke.
And ya know, even though I've been told that it's a good movie, there so much hype around Road to Perdition that I'm dubious.
And I couldn't deal with a bleak drama today.
Aren't you happy you read this? I KNOW I AM !
