Of course, this was all B.K. - Before Kids.
Having kids is a wonderful thing, don't get me wrong, but it does completely and totally change your life. Not only do we rarely have TIME to see a movie just the two of us, we almost never have the money to pay for both movie tickets AND a babysitter.
So now we sit on the couch and watch award shows together, like the Golden Globes, and create lists of movies we want to rent or stream on Netflix.
As the presenters describe various movies, DH and I keep turning to each other to say how much we wanted to see particular movies, but I know if I don't write them down anywhere, I won't ever remember them, so here they are:
While I'm not gay (not that there's anything wrong with it) I am definitely at a crossroads in my life, looking to begin my career all over again. Something about this movie speaks to me. Plus, I heard the man who wrote the screenplay (or was it the book?) interviewed on NPR. Apparently he based the story on his own life. It is really hard to imagine thinking about your parents in a certain way all your life only to discover information about one of them towards the end of their life that forces you to rethink everything you thought you knew about them.
What an amazing underdog story!
First of all, I cannot believe I have NOT seen this movie yet. Secondly, I think I need to invite a bunch of female friends over for a Girls' Night to watch this one - I don't think DH will appreciate quite as much as a bunch of women (drunken or not).
If nothing else, this looks (visually) amazing!
As unfunny as cancer is, my father incredibly kept his strange sense of humor all throughout his battle with cancer, and attributes that in part to his current remission. I just think it is amazing whenever filmmakers can take such a challenging topic and actually make it funny.
I somehow missed the fact that this book was even MADE into a movie! I loved the book - it's the kind of story that stays with you and made me change the way I think about these children who end up going on spree shootings. I never really thought about their families before. In any case, I really can't wait to see how they did translating this book into a movie.
And now I'm bored. I really wanted to watch the Golden Globes to see Ricky Gervais, but he's barely been on since the beginning of the show, so who cares anymore. At least watching as much as I did inspired me to create a good list. Now I need to do some searching on Netflix to see if any of the movies are available to watch yet. Here's hoping!
