I've been cheated. With the absence of Downton Abbey's easy 50 minute fixes, toddlers have stolen my movie time from me...and with it, that quelling of the need to watch a moving book. Movies are the best. The last one I watched was The Avengers (yeah a year or two late) ... back in April. The one before that was with Anne in March. And that was setting a record! Two movies in two months? Unheard of!
So Anne shot me a message that I should really see "Silver Linings Playbook". I've wanted to since it first came out in theaters. I'm not sure if the content is rated R or not, but the storyline intrigued me and the writing, according to Anne, is fantastic. Along a completely different vein, I really want to see "Jack the Giant Slayer". I know-- Jack and Silver Linings ... totally similar :)
But, with two little ones demanding ALL my attention until 7:30 at night and then a book I'm feverishly trying to finish before September's conference and working on crits for Anne's book, I sapped of movie time.
So! Help me out. I'm starting a list of "Must Sees" and "Don't Waste Your Precious Time" movies.
What do you recommend and what do you abhor in the movie world these days?
