Movie Monday

Taking a look at some movies I watched recently cuz I been sick...

Used with permission.

I did not feel well on Saturday (when I write my posts for the coming week). It should not be hard to come up with an idea for a blog post and then pick a hub’s photo to share, but I did not feel well. Apparently, inspiration does not come to those who feel like they are going to barf. 

So I thought I would do a Movie Monday and take a look at the movies I’ve been watching recently.

Disorganized Crime is a movie I “discovered” some years back when I was channel surfing. I’m not sure if this happens to anyone else, but if I happen into a movie in the middle, if I don’t hunt it down and watch it from beginning to end, I am doomed to keep seeing only that part of the movie. I did not want to go through that again, so I did what I had to do. I will also note that this happened before I quit watching “R” rated movies, so there is some language. 

What I liked about this movie was first, it had a sense of humor, and second, it takes place in a small Montana town, which is almost like watching a movie in a small Wyoming town. Did I mention it has a sense of humor? Okay, we all know I have a quirky sense of humor, so I will add a quirky warning to the strong language warning. 

And, because I am quirky-squared, I’ll list Mary Poppins Returns right after my “needs a warning” movie. Because that is how I roll. (Slowly and without logic.) I enjoyed the redo. I don’t know if it is a generational thing or a me-thing, but I didn’t think the music was as singable as the first Mary Poppins until the last song, which I thought was super cute. I also liked the song about not just looking at the covers of books, but opening it, too because I am a huge believer in reading books. I know, not a news flash. 

I also watched Fantastic Beasts and the Crimes of Grindlewald. I confess I enjoyed being back in the Harry Potter world, or the edges of it anyway. I thought I was a pretty good Potter fan, but I feel like I missed some things (possibly because I haven’t read the side books?). I didn’t love, love, love it because it’s the Empire Strikes Back of the series (which I like now but was not happy about at the time), so I’m hoping I live to see the last installment (yes, I worried about living to see the end of the Star Wars saga). Or the next to the last installment. Or the next to the next to last…well, you get the idea. But, mostly it made me miss the fun of a new book releasing and diving back into Harry’s world. 

Oh, and iTunes had a sale of classic old movies for five bucks, so I dived back into the past with Sabrina (original version with Audrey) and the Katherine Hepburn Philadelphia Story. I also grabbed a couple of Thin Man movies because $5. Thankfully, I do not have to add any warnings for these, except a “fun or happy sigh warning” perhaps. 

I also saw the finale to Top Chef Season 16 this week. I have seen all the seasons, yes, all sixteen, but my daughter does not need to feel guilty she got me started watching and then quit. Really. I have tried to figure out the appeal of the show because I don’t cook much anymore unless it is cookies or pie. The show has helped me talk about food like I know what I’m doing, kind of like HGTV makes me sound like I know about renovating. But since I am a hermit the need to talk about anything is strictly limited. I tell myself it is not because I like watching people suffer, but is about character research. 

Okay, that takes me back to watching people suffer because that’s what I do to my characters. Lol

So, did you watch anything fun this week? I hope you’re feeling better than I am! And now I think I might go curl up with a movie and/or a book. 

Perilously yours,

Pauline
